Our Services

Initial Injury Assessment

An initial assessment is required when you are presenting with a new injury or condition. It lasts for approximately 45 minutes and includes a full assessment of the injury presented, treatment for the affected area, rehabilitation exercises as required and help and advice on how to manage your complaint.

Momentum Healthcare is a multidisciplinary team, which enables us to provide our patients with a wider range of expert professionals who specialise in a in musculoskeletal pain and complaints.

During the assessment, the therapist will take an in-depth history and will complete a series of necessary tests to help form a working diagnosis of your pain or injury.


Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage which manipulates the skin, works deep within the muscles and surrounding soft tissues; including muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue. It also aids in flushing away toxins from the body.

Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problematic areas and imbalances in soft tissue that are often caused from repetitive movement patterns and strenuous physical activity or trauma.

Massage increases joint mobility, increases muscle flexibility, reduces muscle tightness and decreases the risk of injury during exercise.


Sports Therapy

Sports therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.

A Sports Therapist is a healthcare professional that specialises in the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain and conditions. They deal with common complaints such as back pain, mobility problems, postural problems and work related conditions as well as having specialist expertise in treating injured athletes. They specialise in injuries and disease of the musculoskeletal system which comprises the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves.


Manual & Soft Tissue Therapy

As in the title, this is a hands on approach to treatment and is a specialised form of physical therapy. Many different techniques are used in manual therapy such as joint mobilisations, applied pressures to muscle tissues and joint manipulations to decrease pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction.


Strapping and Taping

At Momentum Healthcare we provide a wide range of therapeutic and sports taping suited to your injury and rehabilitation needs.

Kinesio Taping: This type of innovative taping has an array of therapeutic benefits and because of its breathable qualities can be left on for up to 5 days. During this time the tape can help accelerate the healing process from traumatic injuries, acute and chronic injuries and pain, and inflammatory conditions. This type of taping is usually used in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities but can also be used on its own during the rehabilitation process.


Injury Rehabilitation

Patient rehabilitation is essential to optimise recovery from any injury. It is the process that all injuries need to go through in order to return to full function. Using a range of exercises that are specific to your injury we develop a programme that is suited to your environment and individual needs. It is not just vital in ensuring athletes return to their sport successfully but for everyday people that need to return to normal daily activities in the shortest possible time.

Rehabilitation for All

  • Acute and traumatic injuries
  • Chronic pain and injury
  • Pre and post-surgery
  • Strength and conditioning coaching for return to sport


Postural Assessment

Postural assessments can take between 45-60 minutes and will involve both assessment and treatment. Please ensure that you bring comfortable clothing including shorts and t-shirt (male) and shorts and vest top (female). This will enable us to view your full posture more comfortably.

Good posture requires good alignment of certain body parts to be maintained and many activities can affect this alignment such as a person's sport or occupation (habitual) or sometimes we can be born with a certain type of posture (congenital).



This is a treatment modality used by many different physical therapists to help promote soft tissue healing. Ultrasound therapy has been used for several years dating back to the 1880's however; the scientific evidence is still disputed. Practitioners worldwide continue to use ultrasound as part of their treatments based on their personal experience rather than the evidence based literature.



Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine which has been used for over 300 years and originated in China. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites around the body for therapeutic and preventative purposes.

Acupuncture can be used as a single therapy or used as part of a treatment when felt necessary by the therapist. Acupuncture stimulates the sensory nerves under the skin and into the muscles and soft tissues. This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain relieving endorphins which helps to reduce pain and relax the tissues.



An Osteopath is concerned with the well-being of an individual, working with their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue to help everything function smoothly. Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging an individual's muscles and joints.

Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and massage, with the aim of:

  • Increasing the mobility of joints
  • Relieving muscle tension
  • Enhancing the blood supply to tissues
  • Helping the body to heal



Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of, diagnosis, and medical treatment of disorders of the leg, ankle and foot. A Podiatrist trains full time for 3 years to obtain a BSc Honours degree in Podiatric Medicine.

Podiatrists are qualified to treat people with arthritis, diabetes, nail surgery and sports injuries. Some specialise in Musculoskeletal / Sports podiatry, children's foot problems or high risk feet & wound care.

Even if your feet are in good condition, you may consider seeing, or be referred to a Podiatrist for custom made orthotics. These orthotic devices can correct imbalances in biomechanics, re-align your foot, take pressure off venerable areas or simply make footwear more comfortable.

To use the title podiatrist or chiropodist and practice in the UK, the individual must be registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).



Physiotherapists help to restore movement and function to an individual when someone is affected by injury, illness or a disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury/illness in the future.

Physiotherapy is open to everyone, no matter what age or ability. It is also open to a wide range of different health conditions, including:

  • Bones, joints and soft tissue: such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and sports injuries
  • Brain or nervous system: movement problems resulting from a stroke, Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease
  • Heart and circulation: for example, rehabilitation after a heart attack
  • Lungs and breathing: such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and Cystic Fibrosis.
