The following are potential treatment options to improve your pain and function.
The use of manual therapy helps to improve mobility in various joints, this works especially well with spinal conditions. My current studies into a Diploma of Musculoskeletal Medicine ensures that manual therapy is up to date and effective.
The use of dry needling and acupuncture is effective in treating various conditions. Through needling the affected area nerves are stimulated which reduces pain, it encourage blood flow and can break down adhesion and knots within muscles.
A manipulation is a force applied to the joint at its end of range, this increases the movement in the joint and therefore reduces pain.
It is not only vital to treat injuries but assess the reasons they occur, through assessment of your biomechanics and suitable adjustments improves pain, reduces injury risk and can improve performance.

There’s loads of science behind how it works but I’ll bore you with that another day.
It’s proven on many tendon problems including:
Cupping utilises suction cups that are applied to the skin’s surface. This draws blood upwards to the area. It’s not as painful as it looks! Great for recovery from intense training and for relieving tight muscles.
