Therapy that is Changing Lives and lifestyles for the BETTER
Charlestown Remedial Sports Injuries Clinic is the most established remedial clinic in the area with a particular focus on Neuromuscular Therapy (nerves and muscles) and nutrition.
The clinic also specialises in Cryotherapy which involves the therapeutic use of cold treatments to promote faster healing time, naturopathy, myotherapy (muscle therapy), Myotrophy which is the nutrition of muscle and Kinesiology which is the scientific study of movement of body parts.
With over 30 years’ experience treating sports injuries, motor vehicle accident injuries and work related injuries, the clinic’s owner Phillip Muller has seen it all. Phillip, who has enough qualifications to cover the length of his arm, takes his role as a health facilitator very seriously and believes in providing hispatients with an honest and open approach to their treatment.
Since opening the doors to his practice in Smith StreetCharlestown more than 30 years ago, Phillip has treated wellover 15,000 people for a wide range of conditions. In that timehe has built a very successful clinic based around integrity andhonesty.
As a result, his business is built on word of mouth andreferrals with many leading surgeons referring their patients tohis clinic for treatment.Phillip has been involved in sports recreation for many yearsand before opening his clinic, he was teaching swimming andbasketball."In those days very little was known or understood aboutsports injuries – certainly nothing remotely close to what isunderstood today" says Phillip.
As a result, Phillip saw a need for a more specialised treatmentbased on neuromuscular treatment using a combination ofdeep tissue and soft tissue work (with no manipulation) forinjuries that include sprains, strains, torn ligaments, whiplashand other neck injuries, back pain and also back injuries."In its simplest form, Neuromuscular Therapy is a modern,logical system of massage therapy that is based onunderstanding how the neuromuscular system functions." explains Phillip.
"The nervous system controls everything in the body, includingmuscle tension and pain. Neuromuscular principles help me understand what is causingthe patients pain- trigger points, posture, and so forth and howto treat it."
"Neuromuscular Therapy's approach to massage involves thevery detailed massage of muscles, tendons, ligaments andconnective tissue. Precise massage therapy releases problemareas that are often missed by other forms of massage."
For Phillip, who is a qualified neuromuscular therapist, herbalist, acupuncturist and nutritionist, much of his treatment focuses on neuromuscular therapy combined with addressing nutritional imbalances and deficiencies to correct underlying conditions.
"I find that most of my patients are deficient in magnesium and iodine. As a result we use ancient magnesium oil in all our treatments. This assists in the relaxation of muscles and reducing joint damage" says Phillip.
Many of the patients Phillip and his colleague Sarah treat at the clinic have tried every other form of treatment with little or no success, and there is no shortage of people who are prepared to come forward to talk about the successful treatment they have experienced at Charlestown Remedial Sports Injuries Clinic.
Faye, who is an amputee after losing her right arm in a car accident over 9 years ago is one such person. Faye has been receiving treatment at Charlestown Remedial Sports Injuries Clinic for the past 8 years and went there after losing confidence in all previous treatments.
Faye suffers from what she calls "one arm overuse syndrome" and can now, thanks to her treatment, drive her car and function normally without pain and the use of pain killers. As a result she has recommended many people to Charlestown Remedial Sports Injuries Clinic over the years.
John, who has worked in the mining industry for most of his life, has suffered from chronic neck and back pain for years and was also told by specialists that he should not expect a full recovery.
After losing all hope for a recovery and after just 4 treatments at Charlestown Remedial Sports Injuries Clinic, John is now learning to manage the pain and has already noticed a significant difference in his mobility.
