Ankle & Foot

Your initial session will involve;

  • Subjective Assessment | A discussion about the forms you completed prior to your appointment.  Getting to understand you, your lifestyle, and what is going on for you right now.  Letting us know about previous sporting or lifestyle injuries, will help us understand the origins of the discomfort.  

  • Goal Setting | Together we will set goals to move you from what you are currently experiencing to where you want to be.  Bringing you the joy and adventure of anything you may be missing out on due to discomfort or pain. 

  • Objective Assessment | A physical examination of your whole body.  We will be looking at your hips, ankles and knees and how they align when you move, as well as how you squat and lunge.  We will look at the positioning of your feet when you stand and move, as well as how they react when your calf muscles are palpated.

  • Treatment After a full assessment your treatment may consist of a blend of the following techniques;

    • Myofascia release & soft tissue palpation to;

      • calf, hamstrings & quadriceps

      • gluteal area

      • lower back

      • release and mobilisation of the ribs

    • Active massage techniques 

    • Dry needling  or cupping to release tight trigger points

    • Personalised exercise & treatment program

Subsequent remedial massage/myotherapy treatments will involve a follow-up objective assessment to see how your body has adapted to the treatment and any exercises you were prescribed. Your treatment will be adapted accordingly. 

At your re-exam, we will again complete a full objective assessment and compare your progress to the goals we discussed at your initial session. 

We can help provide back pain relief, headache relief, and rehabilitation from soft tissue injuries with a thorough assessment and treatment plan.  Our goal is to help you Live Your Best Life - pain free! 

Weak ankles can cause soft tissue injuries.  If you suffer from ankles prone to rolling or twisting you will benefit from Massage Threapy.
