Emirates Golf Club Therapy Centre

The Emirates Golf Club Therapy Centre specialises in manual therapy, sports specific rehabilitation and performance improvement, aiming not only to treat your symptoms, but to give you the means to minimise the impact of the problem and prevent its reoccurrence.

Physiotherapy is the treatment of physical problems caused by injury, illness or ageing.  The focus is always on regaining full functional status as quickly and effectively as possible, with the patient in overall control of their well-being. 

Osteopathy is recognised as a complimentary approach to healthcare that emphasizes the importance of the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, ligaments, joints etc) on the individual's overall health and fitness.  It focuses on how the interruption of optimal functional status can result in pain, dysfunction and ultimately disease. 

Here at the Emirates Golf Club, we look at the whole individual to determine why is this person, suffering in this way, at this time?  In other words, we consider not only the physical functioning of the individual's musculoskeletal system, but other internal and external factors that may be impacting the body's ability to heal; providing a clinical diagnosis and treatment plan for each individual person The practitioner's role is to facilitate the healing process and help the individual's body regain its optimal function.  Emphasis is placed equally on post treatment exercises along with the manual therapy undertaken during treatment sessions.
