I believe there is no one perfect technique that works for everybody. Finding what technique works for the patient comes with experience and trial and error. Often a patient has been to various other practitioners and their experience with treatments in the past also guides me to what to use.
Spinal Manipulation using various techniques including Diversified, NIP, Activator, Thompson and Drop Piece Techniques.
Joint Mobilisation using a mixture of Maitland Mobilisation’s, Kalterborne Method, Diversified and Logan Basic.
Soft Tissue Techniques include Sports Massage, Shiatsu, Stripping, ART and others
Dry Needling and Analgesic Acupuncture with or without electricity at times
Electro therapies including TENS, Electro Acupuncture and Ultrasound.
Strapping may be used for various reasons including immobilization, as treatment and neural feedback for retraining with Kinesio taping.
Exercise and Stretching used both in treatment and for home to help maintain the effects of the treatment and may be the treatment of choice for some conditions.
Vibration Therapy is used on most of the patients using a massager. This helps to stimulate various nerves that help to manage pain.
