Why I'm Different
Our brain controls everything in our body, including our movement, muscle tension and our pain response so why ignore the brain when treating pain and movement restrictions? What sets me apart from the crowd is that I do not. I address neurology, neurobiomechanics and neurochemistry at every stage in assessing, treating and rehabilitating whether it be a persistent niggle or more serious issues. I also use the same approach with ostensibly problem-free clients who simply want move better, be more efficient and improve performance and reaction times.
It's all about your brain!
Most pain and stiffness we experience on a daily basis is not a result of existing or acute tissue damage. It is a response to a problem in the body's circuitry. Put in very simple terms, we experience pain when the brain registers a threat. That threat can arise from errors in the information the brain receives from skin, muscles, joints and ligaments etc around the body or the threat can arise from errors in the visual system and our systems which inform the brain where we are in space and where body parts are in relation to each other. In turn, the more error the brain detects, the more likely it is that mechanisms that normally function to inhibit pain fail to do their job.
Also, our brain can only act on the information it receives from nerve endings and receptors around the body and it responds to that information by instructing organs, joints and muscles what to do. Our millions of receptors will tell our brain when there's a perceived threat or when we are injured so that the brain can move us away from the problem and enable us to compensate for any change. In some cases, the reason our body is experiencing pain or problems is because our nervous system is still giving the brain "old" information long after the threat or injury occurred. In other cases, imbalances in the "firing" of different parts of the brain may be contributing to pain and restriction. This might be because of lack of activation, because of low level systemic inflammation, or because of basic lack of vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy brain and nervous system.
Think computers or living electrical circuitry: I help reboot and reset your brain to remedy pain
Based on a full clinical history, neurological assessment and targeted muscle or reflex “testing”, I used evidence-based neurological techniques (which include manual therapy approaches) as well as clinical neurochemistry and nutrition to treat the circuitry malfunctions. For example I use methods that can essentally seek out the "corrupted" information leading to defective software and movement patterns and use techniques to remind the brain of the optimal movement patterns it has available to it, thus restoring more efficient movement and the balanced use of muscles and eliminating or at the very least reducing pain. If the problems are more neurochemical I will provide often simple metabolic treatment to resolve the problem.
I use cutting-edge equipment to help objectively assess you
I am one of the few UK providers of RightEye®️ assessments to provide insight into your eye movements, visual acuity and brain function. I also use Motion Guidance®️ Laser technology to improve quality and range of movement. I keep myslef completely up to date on the best neurobiomechanical assessment techniques to get to the route of your problem. I leave no stone unturned!
