Physical Therapy & Acupuncture
Working in collaboration with the individual
Physical Therapy involves working in collaboration with the client:
*To establish the underlying cause of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction
*To effectively restore balance and optimal function within the musculoskeletal system.
With the client a treatment is designed and undertaken on an individual basis. The duration of a Physical Therapy treatment is spent exclusively with the individual.
Injury Prevention, an essential part of Physical Therapy
As well as the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, injury prevention is an essential focus in Physical Therapy. An ongoing home-care programme is designed for the client and a maintenance treatment schedule is established based on the client’s needs.
What is ACUPUNCTURE
The acupuncture I practice at my clinic is based on the teachings of Dr Richard Tan, MasterTung, and Mk Sastry of India.
I was fortunate enough to have attended Dr Tan’s seminar of June 2015 in Dublin Ireland and ever since my love for acupuncture has grown. I continue to learn from an amazing teacher and friend, Mr Mk Sastry of Assam, India where I regularly visit to work alongside him in his very busy clinic where I constantly learn and develop my acupuncture skills.
What I have learned from Mk Sastry and Dr Richard Tan, I now incorporate into my clinic where I achieve almost miraculous type results.
Using their techniques along with Tung style acupuncture and physical therapy I have successfully treated rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, ibs, colitis, shingles, and many other so called auto immune diseases and other syndromes of pain and discomfort millions of people suffer with each day worldwide.
Stand a pole under the sun and you immediately see its shadow.
Dr Tan famously said this, and this was his life teaching when he started passing on his knowledge.
Acupuncture is the same, as soon as needles are inserted you should see and feel the results almost straight away. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.
This is what you will experience when you attend my clinic.
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy is a hand-on healthcare, providing a client-centered appraoch in the field of musculoskeletal health in Ireland.It is concerned with identifying the underlying factors causing pain and affecting movement and function within the body’s musculoskeletal system and it intervenes to achieve agreed goals and objectives in maximising function and alleviating pain.
A mainstream and scientific-based form of healthcare
Physical Therapy is a mainstream, and scientific-based form of healthcare with a distinct assessment, treatment and management approach in the field of musculoskeletal health. It incorporates a whole-body approach in assessment of the musculoskeletal system utilising a wealth of scientific assessment techniques. The client’s needs are established within the process of clinical reasoning, by a detailed analysis of findings determined through extensive history-taking and whole-body musculoskeletal assessment.
Physical Therapy specialises in the use of palpatory skills, not only in the initial assessment phase but also in continual assessment and monitoring of soft tissue and joint motion during treatment. It integrates a wide variety of advanced soft tissue and articular techniques to effect restoration of optimal painfree function.
