Who can benefit?
You, your family, friends and colleagues will all benefit from our spinal and physical examination, diagnosis and treatment to help you achieve optimal health and minimise long-term arthritic degeneration, pain and ill-health.
Trauma can cause spinal misalignments, distort your body structure and irritate nerves, bones, ligaments and discs. We specialise in detecting and resolving spinal dysfunction and back pain. At Mike Squirrell Physiotherapy we specialise in the treatment of whiplash injuries.
Sports, Dance or work-related injury.
Repetitive strain or overuse at work or during dance, sports and exercise can impair flexibility, muscle strength, reflexes, endurance and performance, leading to pain, disability and an overall decrease in your quality of life. You don't have to live with it - we help you get to the root of the problem and guide your body to heal and restore your health.
The additional weight and stress of pregnancy can cause postural changes and pain in almost any part of the body. Pregnant women seek our help directly or are referred by their GPs or obstetricians for physiotherapy to restore spinal function and alleviate pain associated with pregnancy.
Babies and children grow quickly and their muscles, ligaments, and bones develop rapidly. A jump or fall can jar the body, affect the spine and nervous system, and go undetected for years. Simple factors, such as a heavy schoolbag or poor school seating, will have negative effects on your children's health. Children benefit greatly from physiotherapy care and advice.
Parents of small children
Parents of small children benefit from our advice on how to lift and carry a child. For post-partum mothers we can detect and carefully correct structural changes that have occurred during pregnancy, labour or delivery.
Teenagers grow quickly and often need our advice on the benefits of proper diet, exercise and improved posture achieved through spinal adjustments and rehabilitation. This helps them develop a body that is structurally and functionally sound.
Maturing adults encounter physical problems associated with ageing.
We understand the effects of ageing and can help posture and minimise pain with joint mobilisation, massage, acupuncture and posture work.
At Mike Squirrell Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic you receive a thorough diagnosis and our gentle and effective therapeutic techniques and intelligent advice will help you.
