Musculoskeletal Therapy works to look after your muscle and skeletal system, with the aim of identifying and treating underlying causes that can lead to physical pain and injury. Used to treat and rehabilitate back pain, neck pain, joint pain, muscular dysfunction and or injuries, Musculoskeletal techniques incorporate remedial and mobilisation techniques as well as home stretching and strengthening exercises to assist in maintaining functional alignment of the skeletal system.
Our body is an intricate biological miracle, made up of skeleton, muscles, soft tissue, organs, skin, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints. There is a lot in each of us that needs looking after. At MO+, each and every one of our treatments, including Musculoskeletal Therapy, aims to look at both physical and mental health with a holistic approach, supporting and driving a sustainable wellness plan for all of our clients.
Meet MO+ Musculoskeletal Therapist,
Sam's passion began as an exercise specialist in 2012, before moving into sports medicine where he worked with a number of elite sporting athletes. After several years of clinical experience, treating countless conditions, Samuel has the ability to address and treat his patient’s with a holistic approach. Specializing in Musculoskeletal Therapy, Samuel’s treatments look closely at the interaction of the spine with the neurovascular and neuromuscular structures. This comprehensive field of assessment and treatment finds its foundations in targeting root causes that present in physical pair or injury:
Vagus Nerve Stimulation - As one of few practitioners who uses non-invasive transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation, a modern medicine technique, Samuel commonly treats depression, anxiety, neuroplasticity, inflammatory disorders, irregular heartbeats, memory, PTSD, reflux amongst other issues.
Photobiomodulation (PBMt) - Samuel is also one of very few experts in his field that is trained in Photobiomodulation (PBMt) - an exciting field of modern medicine that works to regenerate tissue. This laser can also be used on the brain to treat various mood and traumatic brain injuries, including shortening the effects of pain and recovery time.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy – An exciting field of Musculoskeletal medicine, this type of shockwave therapy works to restart the repair process, breaking calcification in tendons, restructuring scar tissue and reducing cellulite significantly.
Underpinning his approach to healthcare is patient education – helping each understand their condition and the means through which they can start the journey of recovery. Samuel works to assess and treat the physical body, while also factoring in the impact chronic pain can have on mental health. Utilising treatment techniques founded in modern research findings, means Sam works to always achieve the best results possible.
