James treats each person INDIVIDUALLY.

When you come to physiotherapy James is not treating your condition, James is treating you as an individual holistically. There is NO system like treatment for a condition, such as Mc Donalds uses to make hamburgers.

For example there is no one way to treat back pain and as every persons back pain is unique…

When you visit a physiotherapist like James we use something called CLINICAL DECISION MAKING. This considers your needs, the things we find on assessment, the evidence based guidelines & research, and experience of the practitioner.

What this means is that James listens to your story, medical history & goals and through Clinical Decision Making process comes up with a plan you agree to, that may best meets your INDIVIDUAL needed goals. This is a TEAM thing with you as the key player.

It may also involve other team players like your doctor, a specialist doctor, an acupuncture doctor, a dentist, a nutritionist, a counsellor or other health professional. James may discuss with you about referral to other supports if needed.

Additionally James may discuss with you other strategies that work on improving your Health & Well Being in general, such as Staying Active & Moving, CARDIO, Non Sleep Deep Rest for recovery, Sleep, Circadian Rhythms & sun light, MIndSet & beliefs and Tension Management.

For those concerned about COVID & Flu there are Good Infection Measures in place including mask wearing.
