Injury Treatments

Coming from a tradition of treating martial arts and other sports related injuries, these robust treatments have evolved as an effective means of healing and returning martial artists back into the training and fighting arena.

The basis of these treatments come from Chow Gar Tong Long Kung Fu which is a Southern style martial art and the Dit Ta medicines are specifically aligned with these training styles.

The effectiveness of this medicinal art lies in its’ versatility as it can be used to treat any age and any level of fitness from the hard working housewife with “baby lifting back”, to executive “lumbago”, painter’s neck and all the injuries associated with the rigorous training of elite athletes across all disciplines. Treating sports injuries or similar work based injuries using the vast array of techniques has proved to be exceptionally beneficial to many elite and amateur sports people.

Though not a Dit Ta practitioner as I have not studied the martial art, I have studied this medicinal art with Sifu Paul Brennan – the only authorised representative of the Chow Gar system in Australia.

This medicine and sports injury treatment has been successfully used to treat:

  • Breaks and fractures
  • Joint damage
  • Dislocations
  • Sprains
  • Torn, strained and pulled muscles, tendons and ligaments
  • Damaged cartilage
  • Nerve damage
  • Inflamed bulging and herniated discs

Treatments will generally involve the use of Chinese herbal medicines and manual techniques to stimulate the body’s natural healing capabilities.

Common injuries such as bulging and herniated discs, cartilage damage and soft tissue injuries will require a number of consecutive days treatment as this medicine has evolved specifically as a method of quick healing rather than remedial massage, therefore it is imperative that sufficient time is set aside in order to get maximum results as quickly as possible.
