Helene prides herself on taking the time to ensure patients fully understand their condition. She feels it is important to have the opportunity to ask questions and be completely involved in treatments and options, whatever the patient’s age.
The treatment process usually follows four steps:
- Assessment: find the source of the pain.
- Diagnosis: determine the cause of the muscular, joint or nerve problem.
- Treatment: includes soft tissue techniques, joint mobilisations, muscle energy techniques and exercise rehabilitation to enable return to full function with constructive advice.
- Prevention: bespoke rehabilitation programmes and fitness regimes are constructed to enhance treatment outcomes and facilitate a return to full activity, be that work or play.
