Is a soft tissue therapy which focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness which is turn helps improve flexibilty and relieve pain. Our treatment will help relax your contracted muscles, improve your blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in your muscles. Our podiatrists recognise that your body works as an integrated whole, and within that whole there are chains of muscle and fascia (connective tissue) which work together. Like the kids songs says, “the foot bones connected to the knee bone…” That is why it is so important to see a podiatrist who focused on the whole body not only the area of your pain.
Is a gentle and quick manual therapy that identifies tender points within your fascia which cause dysfunction and pain. The great thing about this treatment is that is only takes 90 seconds to relieve the pain of a specific point. This is done by moving certain parts of your body into positions of comfort and holding it for 90 seconds. Amazingly this eliminates the tender point and the associated strain reflexes which are causing neuromuscular (nerve and muscle) dysfunction along a fascial chain. These techniques are used to treat structural dysfunctions of the pelvis, knee, ankle and foot.
Our podiatrists are able to quickly test and identify dysfunction in the biomechanical and fascial chains that link the foot with the leg, pelvis, spine and upper extremities. Our bodies are amazing made and interconnected. That’s what makes our podiatrists different in that they address the whole body and not just your area of pain. This allows for better, long lasting results. Rather than just treating symptoms we aim to treat the cause of your problem.
