I can highly recommend Derby Cottage. I recently went back to try and sort a lingering muscular problem in my leg. Shockwave therapy had an immediate positive effect.
Derby Cottage Clinic is equipped with the latest technologies to provide a comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation service through world class Osteopathy, Physiotherapy and Sports Massage.
Osteopathy is method of mechanical, functional and postural diagnosis and treatment based on structural integrity of the body. Osteopaths uses a combination of muscle and connective tissue stretching, rhythmic joint movements and high velocity thrust techniques to treat the issue
Physiotherapy combines exercise, massage and manipulation to alleviate pain and restore function or, in the case of permanent injury or disease, to lessen the effects of any dysfunction.
Sports Therapy is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of existing issues. It utilises the principles of sport and exercise science, incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the patient for training, competition and work.
In addition to Osteopathy, Physiotherapy & Sports Massage, we also provide a number of supplementary services including dry needling, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Shockwave, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, supportive taping and Visceral Osteopathy.
