Mike takes a modern approach to physiotherapy, he looks at the entire body during his comprehensive assessment, looking for the root cause of the the issue, not just treating the symptoms. Mike favours active exercise rehabilitation and long term preventative programming rather than 'quick fix' / 'feel good' treatments which don't last.
