What does the research say?

Research supports an active (exercise based) approach to rehabilitation from soft tissue injuries sustained in motor vehicle collisions. In the early stages (up to about three months post injury), most patients benefit from a blend of pain relieving measures such as gentle manual therapy (hands on techniques) or medical acupuncture, and a focussed, objective oriented exercise regime.

Appointments available at short notice.

Early Physiotherapy Intervention is important as most healing (90%) occurs in the first 6 to 8 weeks following an injury. We take an activity and exercise based approach.
