HOW DOES IT WORK?
THE TREATMENT PROCESS
Choose the service that suits you better. Either online or face-to-face. Take the plunge! You are one step forward of being back on track!
At the beginning of the appointment, we sit down to put all the issues on the table. A friendly screening chat where you will share with me any medical conditions and all the information related to your injury, background and daily lifestyle.
We will go through a biomechanical assessment, testing both your overall and specific mobility in the injured area by performing some movement tests to explore and target the cause of your symptom.
After putting together all relevant information, I’ll give you a diagnosis and establish a comprehensive treatment program, all in the first session, setting goals about what you really want to get out with your visit.
Why is this necessary? Well, if we don’t have a starting point, how are we going to be able to see your improvements?
The aim of this part is trying to release the tension over a specific area, bringing mobility and boosting blood flow to your tissues to achieve short/mid-term outcomes. I normally use a big variety of hands-on techniques, considering the most important manual therapy, osteopathy and deep-tissue massage as well as flossing bands, dry needling or kinesiotaping (if necessary).
When looking for long-term outcomes, exercise is not negotiable. I am trained in strength training rehabilitation and this is the most powerful tool we must use to rehab your injury. Not only because strength training is science-based but also because I’ve been practising it for more than ten years and I highly rely on this as the best approach. Back to basics.
A vast majority of people come out from the session asking themselves, “And now what?” “What should I do?” Well, don’t worry, you will not go home without an achievable active plan that you are going to work on over few weeks to see tangible results.
This whole process will allow me to create the perfect customised programme based on your goals and needs. We will identify what the problem is, target it and solve it.
