Diploma in Remedial Massage
Chris Batten has a bachelor of health science in physiotherapy and a diploma in remedial massage therapy. My focus areas of physiotherapy are musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation, bio-mechanics and strength rehabilitation.
I have a special interest in the treatment of back pain and shoulder disorders. My treatments are based around identifying dysfunction and treating this through education and rehabilitation.
I believe that for every injury, there is an underlying cause. To diagnose, educate and treat requires a personable non-rushed manner. If you understand the mechanism of your injury, you will understand the treatment process. To me, physiotherapy should incorporate treatment and education which involve strategies that highlight prevention and self maintenance.
