hydrotherapy treatment

Following an in depth assessment and analysis of your hip problem we will construct a treatment plan. We use treatments such as soft tissue techniques (myofascial release, trigger point therapy), manual therapy, dry needling, electro-acupuncture, cupping, pilates, hydrotherapy, muscle imbalance work that we have mastered over our many years of practice, additional post-graduate training and experience in this area.

We understand how the hip has an impact on the rest of the body and use a whole body approach to help you.

Louise has produced on-line hip arthroscopy rehabilitation and hip hydrotherapy guides which can be viewed on:
