Emma giving treatment

She uses a multi-discipline approach to treatment and aims to not just treat the symptoms but to find the cause. A typical first appointment involves taking a full medical history and carrying out a posture assessment with specific attention to the presenting symptoms.

A first consultation can last 45 to 60 minutes with follow-up treatments lasting about 30 minutes.

Emma is currently treating Super League rugby players from Bradford Bulls, Wakefield Wildcats and Leeds Rhinos. She also treats local British Superbike competitor Tom Tunstall, England under 21's sprint and hurdle team, England under 21's Indoor Bowls team and some disabled national-level athletes. Around 90% of Emma's patients come via personal recommendations and she also works with other medical specialists.

Her current patient list ranges from babies through to elderly patients in their 90's, all with various types of conditions and injuries. Emma has enjoyed much success with various treatments on young people and she regularly gives presentations on injury prevention and various other treatments.

I have great empathy with my patients which is in part due to me having suffered permanent spinal damage following a car crash. As a consequence I have firsthand experience of rehabilitation and management of injuries and conditions from both the practitioner and the patient's point-of-view.Emma Kirke
