About Howard Kay, Principal Osteopath of HK Osteo
Howard Kay moved to NZ in 2000, after earning a BSc honours in osteopathic medicine from Westminster College and two diplomas from the British College of Naturopathy & Osteopathy. Ever since then, Howard has been working passionately treating clients in the local area. Suffering some injuries of his own as an athletic teenager, Howard has developed a particular interest in treating problems associated with the shoulders and neck. Asthma is also of personal interest, along with frozen shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis).
We customise a program to suit you
Since it was developed in 2006 HK Osteo works closely with other professionals in the area, providing referrals and support when necessary. If you require rehabilitation or treatment for any number of injuries, HK Osteo is a trusted clinic in Mt Maunganui.
We will evaluate your requirements and design treatment programs to suit. If you are a sportsperson, we strive to help you get back on the field as quickly as possible and stronger than before. For reoccurring injuries, we will assess, diagnose and explain the cause of your issues, advising you on what you should do to prevent them.
As well as concentrating on specific injuries, or the area of pain, I will also focus on and spend time discussing previous sports injuries, this assists in helping to design treatment plans and future prevention. A variety of strengthening methods and sports specific exercises are included in your program of rehabilitation.
Arthritis is inflammation of the joint. To treat any issues, your joints require mobility. There are a number of things you are able to do such as utilising heat (wheat bags, hot baths etc), maintaining a balanced diet, moderate exercise, visiting the Mount Hot Pools, Yoga and Tai Chi.
Work Strain Issues
Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS) or Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is caused by long term constant, muscle tension restricting the flow of blood through muscle, which causes the muscles to quickly run out of stored energy. We work to enhance circulation, relaxation and help to ease discomfort.
