At Shepherds Health, we take a holistic approach, considering multiple factors that are currently contributing to the level of your current injury.

We begin by assessing your biomechanics and their relation to your symptoms or medical diagnosis and from this foundation work towards pain-free movement. 

Living with pain and trauma can often lead to imbalances and over-compensatory movements which only exacerbate the problem.  Our approach addresses not only musculoskeletal elements but also considers the nervous system and hormonal factors which are dealt with through a combination of manipulation, movement and the right nutrition.

Our rehabilitation strategies are personalised to your own unique needs, drawing from the latest scientific research and consistent professional development and training of our practitioners. Everyone’s physiology is different and our knowledge and practice of successful rehabilitation contributes enormously to regained functionality, strength, flexibility in a pain-free way.

The Shepherds’ Health team will support you throughout your journey, whether pre- or post-operatively, managing acute or chronic injuries, or preparing for sporting events. We are also happy to collaborate with external consultants, specialists, and surgeons to ensure a comprehensive approach to your physical recovery, striving for a seamless rehabilitation process.


Rehabilitation with Shepherds’ Health means:

  • Restoring functionality/fitness levels
  • Preventing secondary complications/recurrence
  • Reducing pain
  • Promoting healing
  • Aiding psychological wellbeing
  • Enhancing quality of life


Rehabilitation is essential for optimising recovery, minimising complications, and promoting overall physical and mental wellbeing following an injury. It’s a comprehensive process that addresses physical movement, manipulation and nutritional needs so you can regain independence and return to normal life.


How we treat you:

  • Following diagnosis of injury, if treatment is rehabilitation-focused then a strategic rehabilitation programme is created. This will combat weakness/imbalance that may be causing the injury with the aim of eradicating pain and then preventing re-injury. Treatment then leads to you returning to normal life pain free and fully functioning /RTP.
  • If the injury is sport-focused, an analysis of the sport needs to be undertaken to ascertain the biomechanical patterns necessary for specific sporting demands. A periodised programme is then written up with high consideration in using your body’s hormonal and cellular responses to exercise as a tool to attain your goals, ensuring that physiological development occurs to enhance sporting performance.
  • Nutritional advice is included and tailored to your requirements and prescribed exercise programme to aid recovery, reduce inflammation, aid weight loss, gain lean muscle mass, improve immunity and the regulation of bodily function.
  • Treatment frequency will depend on the severity of injury.
  • Length of sessions – 30mins/45mins/60mins.
