Alex Bowles Physiotherapy is here to provide you with safe and effective treatment for a wide range of injuries and ailments. Below are some of the techniques commonly used. Each treatment is based on the results of your initial assessment and tailored to your body, taking into consideration any other injuries, illnesses or conditions you may have.

Manual therapy

This umbrella term refers to treatment that may involve joint mobilisations, manipulation, soft-tissue mobilisation, massage or any other 'hands-on' treatment. It is commonly used to loosen stiff joints, release scar tissue, treat soft-tissues and as recovery from sports participation.

Kinesiology tape

Taping can aid lymphatic drainage following an injury or surgery, reduce pain, support joints, encourage postural awareness and improve athletic performance.


Shockwave therapy, ultrasound, 

interferential and TENS treatment may be used to stimulate soft-tissue repair, speed up the inflammatory process and breakdown scar tissue. It is often used to aid the recovery of ligament or tendon injury.


Sports rehabilitation

Get an assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan in place to safely treat the injury and prevent future problems. Understand when it is safe and recommended to return to sport.

Exercise prescription

Exercises specifically prescribed for your condition. Improve mobility, correct a poor posture or movement pattern which is causing pain, strengthen or stretch particular muscle groups, reduce stiffness in joints.
