How we can help

We can assist you with a broad range of conditions:

Hands on treatment involving mobilisations of joints, stretching of soft tissues, muscle releases and assisted exercises as well as electrotherapy (ultrasound, interferential and biofeedback) are used in treating various complaints. Exercise programs are tailor made for you with progressions added according to the recovery rate.

Initially a thorough medical history is taken and an assessment is made to plan the treatment regime and the course it should take. You are involved in this planning to provide an optimal outcome.

First appointment:

It is not necessary for you to have scans or Xrays before you attend the clinic, however if you have had these done in the past please bring them with you along with any reports. Clothing that allows easy access to the injured part is preferred but not essential.

Although all musculoskeletal injuries are treated at this clinic, Dinah Locke who has been a private practitioner for over 30 years has over 18 years of experience treating jaw conditions, known as Temporomandibular Pain Dysfunction. Facial pain and headaches may be the symptoms of an underlying problem with your jaw joint or the muscles we use to chew or clench (muscles of mastication). Your dentist may have noticed clicking in the jaw joint or the fact that you had been having difficulties with keeping your mouth open wide for the dental examination or a procedure. Other joint noises may have been apparent when you have been eating. After a thorough assessment, you will be helped with improving the movement pattern in the jaw joint, thereby reducing the likelihood of the clicking or other joint noises and together with gentle mobilisations and exercises, improving the range of motion.

For those who have undergone surgery to the jaw joint, Dinah will guide you through the recovery period to regain full function.
