We have some new and very exciting equipment available at our Chorley clinic. Here at Summit Physiotherapy, our main focus is to keep you out of our clinics for as long as possible. However, when you do visit us we aim to get you back to recovery as fast as possible. We have equipped our clinic with a brand new, state of the art Hyperbaric Chamber and GAIT analysis system. We are now fully equipped to boost your performance and keep you injury-free for longer. Furthermore, Both pieces of equipment can help your body to recover faster. In this blog, I will be discussing our new equipment and services in detail and how they can benefit you.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber
Are you feeling like you don’t have enough energy after working out and you’d like to recover faster? Perhaps you’d like to boost your performance when performing a sport? Our Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber can allow an athlete to return to full function faster than the normal time for rehabilitation.
Great, but how does it work?
Oxygen is carried around the body by the blood. Breathing in pure oxygen under increased pressure, allows extra oxygen to be taken up by the bloodstream and dissolved more quickly. The extra oxygen can help where healing is slowed down by infection or where blood supply is limited by damage to the tissues.
The Hyperbaric Chamber also has other benefits other than to help you recover from injury. It has been shown to help combat the degeneration of cells by contributing to the regeneration of tissue and blood vessels. Many conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and chronic fatigue have responded favourably to our Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber.
Are you an athlete wanting to correct your form and stay injury-free? Want to stay out of our clinics? If you’re a runner or a golfer, our new GAIT analysis technology could be beneficial to you.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or you’ve just started a couch to 5k training plan, correcting your form will only work wonders for you. You’re less likely to pick up an injury and you will notice a difference in your performance.
Here at Summit Physio, with the help of our GAIT analysis, we also offer custom orthotics. They are designed specifically to fit your feet and work more efficiently than any other type of Orthotics. We use Footscan technology to measure and analyze how your foot works. One of our Clinicians will look at your feet and legs, analyze your movement, measure your foot position and put all this together in the bigger picture with your symptoms and lifestyle. With all this data we can order you the best custom orthotics for you and your lifestyle.
We now have a completely new service on offer; Rehab Pilates with Ruth Hoyle. Ruth is the founder and owner of Exercise Angels. She is extremely passionate about what she does and really enjoys working with a wide range of people.
Ruth uses a sliding platform, known as a carriage, on which you lie, sit, kneel or stand to perform different exercises. This highly versatile piece of equipment allows for an unlimited range of exercises to be performed, many of which train key muscles you probably never knew existed.
The reformer is widely known for its benefits during rehabilitation and recovery. With low loading to begin, the movements are gradually progressed to help switch on the core and restore balance, strength and mobility within the body. Ruth has over 20 years’ experience of teaching Pilates and specialises in Pilates rehabilitation.
With our new equipment, we can now offer you so much more. Our new services will help you recover faster, perform at a higher level than ever before AND keep you out of our clinics for longer!
