Treatments Provided by Metro Physio Middleton

Please note that our more specialised services such as injection therapy are not provided at all our clinics.

Physiotherapy & Sport Rehabilitation

We start with a detailed assessment and examination to ensure we have a clear understanding of the sports injury or physical difficulty before building your treatment plan.  We will use a range of techniques and treatments to achieve the desired results.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used in conjunction with other treatments such as manual therapy and exercise to enhance treatment outcomes by reducing pain and promoting healing.  It stimulates the brain and spinal cord to produce natural chemicals such as endorphins and serotonin.

Ostenil Injection Therapy

An effective treatment for mild to moderate osteoarthritis, we inject a substance directly into a joint or tissue to achieve pain relief that typically lasts 9 – 12 months.

Sports Massage in Middleton

Sports therapy includes sports massage which is a deep tissue massage used to alleviate stress and tension and to address minor issues as they occur to help prevent long term niggling injuries developing.  Anyone can benefit from sports massage treatments, you don’t have to be a sports person!

Spinal Manipulation

A manual therapy which involves manipulation of the spine to increase the range of movement.  It is often used to relieve chronic lower back pain.

Sports Taping

Taping can be used to give additional support to muscles and joints to aid the recovery process and reduce pain.  The tape must be applied in a specific way which is influenced by many individual factors.  You should consult an expert for advice before using tape yourself.

What Our Clients Think Of Our Services

I have found the treatment with Metro Health and Wellbeing to be an integral part of my treatment as a swimmer especially in the last few weeks leading up to a major competition. The staff are very experienced, knowledgeable, supportive and informative. Assessments and treatments are clearly explained both before and after and advice and guidance given where appropriate. I find the service and staff welcoming, friendly and very accommodating with respect to appointment times. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
