Why Sport and exercise are so important

For many people, playing sport is not just a pleasant activity, but also a key part of their social and leisure time. If prevented from participating by injury, their lives are that much the poorer, especially if for much of the rest of the time they are fairly sedentary.

Step 3:  Functional Active Release (F.A.R.)

What is Functional Active Release (FAR)?Functional Active Release (F A R) encourages:

  • Hands on dynamic focal release of chronically shortened and ischaemic muscle – postural muscles as well as those that has been contracted due to past injury.
  • Ability for patients to keep control of any discomfort during treatment whilst regaining awareness of body joint and muscular function.
  • Reducing the risk of damage to tissues during treatment whilst allowing deep stretch and keeping the patient communicating with the practitioner throughout treatment steps.
 Benefits to the patient:
  • Re-learning function patterns – after injury.
  • Re-education muscle groups – after disuse.
  • Re-integration of  joint and muscle function after joint surgery.
  • Reduce Psychological helplessness by fully incorporating patients with their treatment session.
  • Feedback during treatment helps guide and make treatment individual and effective in the quickest time.

Step 4:  We provide tailored advice to minimize risk of future injury:

    • Modify your warming-up routine
    • Cooling-down routine
    • Cross training
    • Choosing your sports shoes
    • Lifestyle outside of training
