Back to Activities Management

Through proper diagnosis, our experienced staff will carefully put together a recovery plan to assist in getting you back to your daily activities. We use the latest in technology and the pool of specialist knowledge to manage this process. 

Pain Management

Our experienced medical staff are trained in the area of pain management through the use of latest technology, such as laser, electro and prolo therapy. Our view in pain management is to explore conservative approach before the drug prescription route. 

Chronic Disease Management

We constantly aim to be at the forefront of chronic disease management. Our clinics achieve this through regular training and knowledge exchange programs that we have in place. We stay connected to the latest news and research, as well as investing heavily in modern technology, just to make sure our patients have the best care possible. 

Recovery

In addition to the traditional approach to recovery, at our clinics we offer Laser, Electro and Prolo therapy. The recovery time can be halved by combining the right methods. Recent case studies involving strength athletes were groundbreaking post injury as well as competition. 

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy), also know as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection, is a recognised musculoskeletal procedure that stimulates the body's healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue. It is based on the fact that when ligaments or tendons (connective tissue) are stretched or torn, the joint they are holding destabilises and can become painful. The original term used for this therapy was "sclerotherapy", coined in the 1930's when this treatment was discovered, and included dextrose (glucose solution) injections.

Laser Therapy

LLLT is a laser light therapy that improves tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduces inflammation and reduces pain wherever the beam is applied. Treatment time typically take up to 20 minutes. A typical course is between 10-15 sessions spread across two to three weeks period. LLLT works predominately on a protein in mitochondria (cytochrome c oxidase) to increase ATP and reduce oxidative stress. A cascade of mitochondrial and intracellular downstream effects lead to improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation. Please visit our Lasmik website for more information.

Electro Therapy

Using the latest in electro therapy technology, we are able to help athletes to recover and perform at their peak. Electro therapy has many modalities and has been a subject of many studies. Used at the right place, at the right time and for the right reasons, it has a phenomenal capacity to be effective. As such, our clinics invest in the latest technology and staff training in order to be most effective in this area. The biggest benefit however comes from using electro therapy as a part of a package of care. This is why in our clinics we offer other methods of recovery and performance enhancing procedures to compliment each other.
