Physical Injury Therapy and Sports Massage

Doc stretching patientWhether you’re an office worker, plumber, taxi driver, athlete or another “everyday” person, you likely contend with muscular aches and pains. At Crossgates and Rothwell Chiropractic Clinics, our physical therapy and sports massage services are an excellent complement to chiropractic care. While chiropractic focuses on the spine, these concentrate on relieving muscle tension and increasing blood flow to the affected area.

Meet Our Therapist

Our Physical Therapist Vash graduated From Leeds Beckett University in July 2016 with a BSc in Sports & Exercise Therapy. He’s also a member of the Society of Sports Therapists. During his time at LBU, he worked closely with various sports teams including recreational and professional rugby players; he also offered his services at various events and marathons.

Since graduating, Vash has actively been treating patients and clients in clinics around Yorkshire. He mainly works on soft tissue and extremities and manages conditions such as (but not limited to):

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Muscular Imbalance
  • Muscular stiffness
  • Muscular discomfort after exercise

Techniques Used

Deep Tissue Massage/Sports Massage – These types of massage apply deep pressure to break up any scar tissue that’s causing pain and reduce tightness and knots.

Myofascial release –This technique, which focuses on the fascia, is the primary one used in sports massage. Vash will locate the tender areas where muscle and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release it.

Tapping – These massage movements involve the repetitive striking of the tissue with a part of the hand.

Trigger Pointing – By applying direct pressure or stretching of the affected muscles, Vash can reduce muscle spasms and flush out pooled blood and accumulated toxins.

Strength & Conditioning – Vash will assess your injury visually and physically by palpating. He will work to fix the muscular imbalance that tends to happen with every injury. “I will look at loosening up the muscles that require it and tightening the ones that need strengthening.”

Additionally, Vash will provide you with 2-3 exercises that you can do at home. He will have you redo the exercise back to him and talk you through them so you understand what you should be feeling.

What to Expect

By the first session, Vash will let you know what the problem is and what you can do for rehab. In addition to providing relief through his various techniques, he will give you some Kinesio tape, equipment like resistant bands and some basic rehab techniques.

Vash is available for appointments at our Crossgates office on Mondays and Wednesdays between 14:00-19-00.

Initial consultation and treatment 1 Hour (£45). Subsequent appointments – 1 hour (£45) and 1/2 Hour (£30) bookings.
