About MARK SKOYLES
Everyday activity can cause overuse, misuse or disuse problems with your muscles and joints. As a self protection mechanism against seriousdamage muscles often go into semi permanent spasms. These are the ‘niggly’aches that can occur in your shoulders, back or hips.
Bad posture, poor technique in sports, sitting for long periods of time or bouts of activity that your body is not used to can all cause injury & pain. Recurrent mild stiffness in the lower back or ‘sciatica’ type pain first thing in the morning is a symptom of a build up of ‘knots’ around the hips and lower back. Starting a new exercise routine or stepping up the training creates tension in muscles which can develop into imbalances and musculo-skeletal injuries.
Common sporting injuries and chronic musculo-skeletal injuries are treated using various hands-on techniques and exercises specifically designed to help repair damage and strengthen and re-establish correct movement patterns. Using knowledge of anatomy, neurology, biomechanics & exercise physiology the focus of treatment may not just be on the site of pain, but also on the movement (or lack of) in everyday life that causes or exaggerates the problem.
