Fix The Cause! Not Just The Symptom.
Aspire Physio Bangkok offers physical assessments and rehabilitation for sports injuries, back pain, shoulder pain, cervical pain, knee pain, and post-operative rehabilitation.
That means dealing with how the nervous system interacts with joints, muscles, fascia, and circulation. Dysfunctions lead the nervous system to respond in several ways, most notably inhibiting muscle function or increasing tone/tension in a protective response. These muscle imbalances don't just go away by throwing exercises or a heating pad at them.
Manual Techniques Provided Include:
Physio Bangkok specialises in body mechanics and pain management, with a focus on hip, shoulder, cervical, and lower back pain. We also work with more serious cases involving chronic pain and sports injuries.
The goal is not only to relieve pain, but also to improve joint, muscle, and fascia mobility, as well as increase body awareness, in order to normalise function and decrease the likelihood of future pain.
Just One of Our Happy Clients:
For years I’ve had a lot of muscle knots and tension my back and after a few days of traveling with heavy luggage, I was in desperate need of some deep muscle work. I needed something other than the usual Thai or oil massages found in Bangkok. Web searches didn’t produce many results, but I finally found Physio Bangkok just outside of Asoke BTS station. I left my contact information with the front desk and was later contacted by their therapist. He spent time on the phone to figure out exactly what I was looking for and what he could do for me.
I was impressed so I made an appointment for later that evening. He was extremely thorough and explained in detail what was causing my tension. He then proceeded to work on the troubled areas all while explaining what he was doing and how it affects my body. I’ve had a lot of deep tissue massages before, but none quite like his. He was the most thorough and knowledgeable masseuse I’ve met. Now, after 4 days and more traveling, I feel great!! I’m looking forward to the next time I can get some work done by him. Thank you!

Restoring Health And Optimal Function Is Our Primary Objective.
Need a more detailed approach?
Myofascial release (MFR) is a soft tissue massage therapy used to treat muscle immobility and pain. This alternative medicine therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and affect the nervous system through the stretch receptors in both fascia and muscle.
Fascia is a thin, tough, and elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscles. It supports and protects these structures and connects them from head to toe. Fascia is aligned into pathways (meridians) that connect specific muscles together in straight or spiraling patterns that often coincide with the meridians of acupuncture. Tension in the fascia is transmitted along these meridians from one muscle to another, which is considered a form of communication between muscle groups that coordinates and facilitates motion that is seven times faster than impulses transmitted along nerves. A major aim of MFR is to free ‘fascial restrictions’ between the layers of fascia that appear to disrupt proper transmission of tension (called transduction) and proper nervous system feedback.
Myofascial release is personalized to the patient’s needs following an assessment of symptoms, posture, and mobility. It can be a standalone treatment, but it is even more effective when combined with other osteopathic manual therapies.
Back Pain Management
How to treat your back pain
Treating and managing back pain is something you need to take active action. Rest is simply not enough.
If you have a recurring or chronic pain, you need to find the root cause of the issue, not just treat the symptoms.
This is where our Pain Specialists are different. Back pain is our specialty and we have helped hundreds of clients in Bangkok fix their back pain. You can be next.
Come in for a consultation and we can assess your needs and start working on getting you pain-free.
There are four types of postural alignment, would you know whether you have Kyphosis, Lordosis, or Scoliosis?
Postural analysis helps to identify areas where your body may be over compensating itself from either recent or past injuries such as:
We also look at recent injuries carrying out a range of movements involving the injured part in order to identify whether it is a muscle, bone or joint problem. Finding out which areas are effected or whether there is a psychological link to the injury.
We do this by using a range of passive and resisted movements to test the muscles and assist in ruling out the source of pain.
We then take a corrective exercise approach to complete and permanent recovery.
Preventing Sports Injuries
You can help prevent your child from being injured by following some simple guidelines:
It’s important for kids to use proper equipment and safety gear that is the correct size and fits well. For example, kids should wear helmets for baseball, softball, bicycle riding, and hockey. They also should wear helmets while they’re in-line skating or riding scooters and skateboards.
For racquet sports and basketball, ask about any protective eyewear, like shatterproof goggles. Ask your child’s coach about the appropriate helmets, shoes, mouth guards, athletic cups and supporters, and padding.
Protective equipment should be approved by the organizations that govern each of the sports. Hockey face masks, for example, should be approved by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC) or the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). Bicycle helmets should have a safety certification sticker from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Also, all equipment should be properly maintained to ensure its effectiveness.
Check that playing fields are not full of holes and ruts that might cause kids to fall or trip. Kids doing high-impact sports, like basketball and running, should do them on surfaces like tracks and wooden basketball courts, which can be more forgiving than surfaces like concrete.
Any team sport or activity that kids participate in should be supervised by qualified adults. Select leagues and teams that have the same commitment to safety and injury prevention that you do.
The team coach should have training in first aid and CPR, and the coach’s philosophy should promote players’ well-being. A coach with a win-at-all-costs attitude may encourage kids to play through injury and may not foster good sportsmanship. Be sure that the coach enforces playing rules and requires that safety equipment be used at all times.
Additionally, make sure your kids are matched for sports according to their skill level, size, and physical and emotional maturity.
Just as you wouldn’t send a child who can’t swim to a swimming pool, it’s important not to send kids to play a sport that they’re unprepared to play. Make sure that your child knows how to play the sport before going out on the field.
Your child should be adequately prepared with warm-ups and training sessions before practices as well as before games. This will help ensure that your child has fun and reduce the chances of an injury.
In addition, your child should drink plenty of fluids and be allowed to rest during practices and games.
Post Operative Recovery
Massage Therapy Enhances Post Operative Rehabilitation
In medicine, surgical procedures are often the only way to achieve lasting relief, although the surgery itself is just one step in making long-term results successful.
Many consider the most important component of a successful surgical procedure to be the post-surgical rehabilitation process. It is during this process that natural movement is relearned, and freedom of movement is reinforced. Massage plays an important role as a supplement to standard rehabilitation procedures.
By increasing circulation and relaxing muscles, massage helps the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs. This allows the rehabilitating areas to become more flexible and heal at an accelerated rate.
