Orthotics | Salus Physio

Your knee, hip and spinal movements will also be looked at, as they will provide more information for the fitting of an appropriate support or orthotic for you. A full assessment by your physiotherapist at Salus Physiotherapy, will check the amount of movement, the biomechanics and the position of your feet. Pain may not be the only indication for the need for orthotics, as biomechanical efficiency and control can also be helped with orthotics.

Sports Injuries | Salus Physio

It is a painful condition generally associated with sports involving repetitive jumping or impact loads, while lateral epicondylitis or â??tennis elbowâ?, is a form of repetitive stress injury at the elbow. Despite all the known benefits inherent to regular exercise, sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise simply due to the nature of the activity.

IMS | Salus Physio

Pain that shows no obvious sign of tissue damage or inflammation such as headaches, backaches, â??tennis elbowâ?, â??frozen shoulderâ?, chronic muscle pain and a host of other soft tissue complaints are difficult to treat with traditional methods. IMS is different from acupuncture in its application since the needle insertion is indicated by physical signs as opposed to the meridians or energy paths of Chinese acupuncture.

Manipulation | Salus Physio

Those with malignant and inflammatory diseases, suspected fractures, osteoporosis, disordered mental states, and those who use or have used certain drugs/medications such as steroids and anti-clotting agents generally are not suitable candidates for spinal manipulation. Technically speaking, manipulation to sacro-iliac and rib joints is also â??spinalâ? manipulation, because the sacro-iliac and rib joints attach to the spine.
