Physiotherapy

Man Yuen is our highly experienced and reputable physiotherapist working at NTT.

 

Man Yuen has over twenty years experience as a physio and has treated a wide array of clients ranging from elite sportsmen to post operative patients. Taking a holistic approach, Man Yuen incorporates Eastern medical and whole body philosophy to form the basis of her approach. Man Yuen is also a 'Be Activated Facilitation' therapist.

A thorough initial assessment lasts between 30-60 mins and involves a medical history and physical examination to ensure that your goals and treatment provided align. Shorts should be brought along for your physical assessment. Your symptoms and recovery plan is then discussed, with the likely duration and treatment avenues available to reach this end negotiated. Remaining time available is used to progress your treatment and self-management skills (e.g. exercises or strapping). It is important to be aware that some temporary discomfort may occasionally be experienced, this is due to the examination of irritated tissues. Please advise your therapist if this occurs.

 

Treatment may consist of - advice on Supports/Orthotics and Exercise progression; Manipulation or mobilisation, Acupuncture, Ultrasound, Interferential, massage and frictioning, Myofascial or deep tissue release, Be Activated facilitation and Fixed or Kinesiology taping.

Acupuncture

An established part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that can help with recovery from injuries and Chronic/long-term pain. Unsuitable for those on blood thinners other than aspirin.

Be Activated Facilitation

Manual access to the body's reflexes to optimise our peak performance by adhering the the body's primary principles. By following the body's priorities, function, sports and cognition feels easier and faster, leading to unlocking of untapped potential, e.g. injury prevention.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is a highly effective therapy used to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness. It's commonly used to treat chronic muscular-skeletal imbalances, strains and sprains.

Treatment involves the application of various massage techniques designed to treat both deep and superficial tissues, including trigger point therapy and muscle energy techniques. 

 

It is advisable to consult a doctor before receiving a massage for specific conditions which may not be related to soft tissue.

 

Sports Massage

Sports massage therapy is used to alleviate the stress and tension which can build up in the body’s soft tissues during exercise. Where minor injuries and lesions occur due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that can inhibit optimum muscle function and performance, whether you are a professional athlete, ardent gym go-er or a once a week jogger.

This treatment is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).

The aim of sports massage is to optimise performance, prevent injury and minimise post event injuries.

Kinetic Chain Release (KCR)

Specially crafted, simple yet extremely effective system of mobilizations and stretches, developed by Scottish Physiotherapist Hugh Gilbert, that brings the physical body back into balance quickly and easily, frequently providing a high degree of relief and even instant resolution in many cases from the pain and discomfort.
KCR is a protocol to correct an apparent leg length difference and bring postural changes to align the body physically. Realigning the body this way can have a profound effect on chronic back pain, hip pain, fibromyalgia, teeth clenching, chronic menstrual pain, diabetes, depression, sleep apnoea, jaw dysfunction (TMJ) pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, IBS and many other conditions. 

 

 

 

Connective Tissue Release (CTR)

Hugh Gilbert's gentle approach to opening up and releasing areas of deep restriction within the body. It can help relieve chronic tension, promote deep relaxation, enhance self-awareness and improve posture. CTR  is only applied after the KCR protocol.
