Treatment Information

What some of our patients had to say?

Clare Barras

My daughter has really benefited from her sessions with Alex at Head2Toe. She is a competitive swimmer and the initial screening session highlighted some key areas for her to work on. She was given some exercises to do at home and after a few weeks her screening score really improved. She appreciated understanding where her weaknesses were and more importantly what she could do to improve them. Alex was great working with her, and also helped her with a specific back issue which is much improved.

In my capacity as a Head Swimming Coach of Clubs and National Programs and Teams. I have, over the years of my coaching had swimmers with injuries requiring Physiotherapy. At Head2Toe Physio they have without fail treated my swimmers promptly and professionally with a quick assessment of their injuries, which is a priority when dealing with international and national sportsmen.
All the staff are friendly, and go out of their way to make them feel relaxed and confident in their skills and I highly recommend Head2Toe Physio Clinic as a treatment centre of excellence.

What is a Swim Screening and how can it help me?2024-05-09T10:31:15+00:00

Our approach begins with an examination of your training history and current training loads over the previous months to address acute vs chronic training loads. From here we will perform a full clinical assessment looking at joint mobility, range of motion, strength, power and the efficiency of your mechanics.

We will review this data to determine any imbalances, whether it is joint or muscular, that can lead to overcompensation, possibly affecting performance, through poor movement patterns, or contributing to an injury.

You’ll leave with a clear idea of what potential issues there may be, how to deal with them and a program of exercises you can carry out to help you work towards improving those issues.
