Strong for summer: Muscle People

Those first hints of summer fill us with excitement, and fires our desire to get active. We want to roll back the years, and maybe even re-enact all our past glories at tennis, running, touch, or waterskiing.

Next thing you know, you’ve dived in boots and all.

The end result is a niggle in the neck, a complaint in the cartilage, or a grumble in the gluteus maximus.
“The key here is not to wait, to get on to those little issues early,” says Charise Walter, practice manager at Muscle People. “Better yet, prevent them before they crop up with a specialised strength and conditioning programme.”
Muscle People was established in 1998, and now has three Christchurch locations.

“We are in the city, at Bishopdale, and at Wigram Skies,” says Charise. “We’ve been treating people from all areas of Christchurch and Canterbury for 25 years now. Cantabrians know and trust our team.”

The practice prides itself in having a strong team committed to a range of treatment options to fit each individual, and this enables them to offer an extensive range of treatment. This includes acupuncture and dry needling, massage and trigger point therapy, general physio, treatment for neck and back pain, sports physio, strength and conditioning training, shockwave and laser treatment, as well as prevention and treatment for corporate and work injury management.

With the goal of both treating and preventing injuries, Muscle People offer the Dynamic Spines programme. Physio-led, it is designed to help strengthen the core. This in turn supports the strength, mobility, and healing of the spine.

The team’s headache and migraine treatment is also sought after with specific physiotherapists specially trained in the Watson Headache Technique.

Aspiring dancers are catered to with en pointe assessment and treatment. Or if you are a beginner runner or hoping to get to the next level, a running assessment with detailed video analysis will be the first step in reaching your goals.

Whether you are looking to strengthen and condition, improve technique, treat niggles, or are ready to address a larger problem, the team at Muscle People can help you get moving more freely.

“Talk to us about where you are at, and what you would like to achieve, and we will get you started on the right path with the ideal professional,” says Charise.
