We are pleased to say that all three clinics are now offering Shockwave Therapy. This is a form of electrotherapy, that in recent times has emerged as a leading choice in the management of chronic tendon problems; such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), tennis elbow, achilles pain, pain in the knee tendon (jumper's knee) and pain in shoulder tendons.
The evidence shows that it is successful in breaking up scar tissue and calcifications to encourage the body to re-start the 'stalled' healing process, and is proving to be more effective in the resolution of these problems.
Book an appointment with one of our chartered physiotherapists to discuss if this is a suitable treatment option for you and your condition.

What is Pilates?
Pilates is a low impact body friendly training system which focus on core strength and mobility. Pilates can help with functional movements, balancing the body and general well being, and particularly beneficial during rehabilitation. Other benefits include weight loss, muscle toning, improved posture and flexibility.
Who is Pilates for?
Everyone, regardless of fitness level. For example, anyone wishing to improve their total fitness, posture and appearance, or professional sportspersons using advanced conditioning programmes to enhance performance. First time exercisers might find it a gentle introduction to exercise, whilst the keen sportsman may find it a useful cross-training method and a means to stay injury free. Its controlled approach means that it gives much longer-term results, and is especially recommended for those with back problems.
At Braintree Physiotherapy Clinic, we offer a small selection of Pilates classes in our purpose built studio. With smaller classes we are able to deliver an expert, professional service, with highly skilled instructors.
For further information on class times, availability and fees, please contact Michelle directly on 07956 256924 or email her at Mich072005@hotmail.co.uk
