The human body is an amazingly adaptable piece of machinery. Restriction of movement in one region of the body, e.g. due to joint stiffness or soft tissue tightness, can often be compensated for by the development of extra (but excessive) movement in an adjacent region. Unfortunately this excessive movement often leads to overstrain or overload of tissues and pain. Manual therapy is a handson technique that involves mobilising and/or manipulating the joints. It has many therapeutic benefits that can be felt immediately. Increasing the range of motion and reducing pain are just two of the diverse therapeutic effects of Manual Therapy.
Therapeutic ultrasound is one of the most common treatments used in the management of soft tissue lesions, which constitute the majority of rheumatic complaints. By using mechanical waves (ultrasound), this treatment aims to accelerate the healing process
in damaged tissues and to reduce the inflammation affecting many structures. Ultrasound is may also be used to break down the adhesions in post operative cases to increase the range of motion.
Electrotherapy is a form of medical treatment, which uses small electrical impulses to repair tissue, stimulate muscles and increase sensations and muscle strength. The electrical impulses are used to alleviate pain, improve circulation and the healing rate. Different electrical currents with different properties are applied when needed.
Employment of Kinesio Taping creates a totally new approach to treating nerves, muscles, and organs. Commonly used for athletes, different methods of taping are applied, including the colored Kinesio Tape, McConnell tape, white tape, ankle and wrist wrapping. The use of each tape varies according to the specific condition. Kinesio Tape is used to assist functional activities and to improve circulation in the desired area. It is the most common tape used at Physio Relief.

By creating low air pressure in the cups, Dry Cupping is used to relieve many problems. The technique works by stretching the sheath surrounding the muscles and the muscular tissues themselves. It also increases the circulation in the area to help wash away all the toxins that may cause pain, soreness and tightness. Dry Cupping is one of the best solutions for chronic (more than 3 months) pain.
