Sports Massage Special Offer

Sports massage is a treatment which combines deep tissue techniques to mobilise and manipulate soft tissue structures. It can effectively relieve soreness and pain; help to maintain muscle length and flexibility and address soft tissue “imbalance” which often results from postural issues.

Deep tissue massage can reduce the risk of injury and aid recovery following training or after a sports event by facilitating the removal of waste products or toxins. Whilst it can be particularly advantageous for individuals who are involved in regular physical activity sports to gardening, the effects of massage can be equally beneficial for those who have a sedentary, desk orientated role.

The daily stresses and strains of work, as well as hours spent sitting at a desk or poorly positioned working on a laptop at home can all contribute to aches and pains. Sports massage can reduce muscular tightness and localised areas of sensitivity in the soft tissues (trigger points).

At Physio and Health Matters right now we are pleased to offer a 30 Minute Sports Massage for only £30

The treatment will be delivered by a Chartered Physiotherapist, so why not take advantage today!

Biomechanical Assessments

As the summer approaches, you’re probably looking forward to heading outdoors to make the most of the sunshine and fresh air. Whether you’re a keen runner or an avid walker, have you ever considered an assessment of your biomechanics? Changes to the structure and alignment of your feet and lower limbs can be a cause of pain in many instances but can often be corrected temporarily with taping or more permanently with orthotics.

The study of biomechanics is not only relevant to the athlete. Did you know that excessive pronation (fallen arches) and a leg length discrepancy (where one leg is shorter than the other) can contribute to low back pain? At Physio and Health Matters we often see patients who have suffered with back pain for years but have not always responded successfully to treatment. We offer a rounded approach, combining our physiotherapy skills with our knowledge of biomechanics to create a sustainable change.

Physio and Health Matters are proud to offer 3D scanning to create a digital cast for bespoke custom made orthotics, effective in the prevention and management of pain in the foot and ankle; shin; knee and back. We are also delighted to offer “Kinesio Socks” to prevent shin splints; provide stability around the ankle; protect and support the achilles tendon and pronation control – an innovative, hassle free and cost effective alternative to taping.
