Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Sports massage is a deep tissue massage that targets and works on specific muscles that need most attention. Sports massage is effective for many kinds of muscular and soft tissue discomfort or injury, whether it is due to posture, occupational stress or sporting activities. A variety of techniques, such as soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques (MET) and neuromuscular techniques (NMT) are applied to help break down scar tissue and adhesions in the muscles.
Acupuncture may benefit a wide range of disorders including the following conditions: Painful and musculo-skeletal disorders, Neurological disorders, Menstrual, gynaecological and obstetric disorders, Male and female infertility, Anxiety states, Digestive disorders, Urinary tract diseases, Circulatory diseases and Addiction disorders.
Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing.
Russell Shingles MSCP AACP MSc DiPT
Russell qualified from the University of Brighton in 2008. He has gained extensive experience in mainly the private physiotherapy sector, specialising at very early stage in his career in the management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions in particular with athletes and the older adult. Russell then joined The Horder Centre in 2014, and worked as a MSK Service Lead in a thriving Private Clinic in Tunbridge Wells , providing treatment to patients with acute and chronic MSK conditions as well as providing regular education to local care providers, leisure providers and athletes.
Alongside his work in the private clinic, Russell has gained valuable experience in the management of sports injuries, having worked with National level and professional sporting athletes, in particular cyclists. Having reached an elite level himself Russell was ideally suited to getting heavily involved in pre-season testing, bio-mechanical analysis of seating positions and sport specific rehab.
Russell believes strongly in not only identifying the primary causes of a clients pain but also educating the person. A robust understanding on the patients part will allow them to be more empowered about the injury and possibly to help reduce the reoccurrence of the problem.
