Often we can book in to appointments and not really know what to fully expect so I have laid out some typical examples of my sessions, below.
The consultation is highly valuable to the practitioner to not only keep you safe but to hear subjectively the issues you have been faced with, with regards to musculoskeletal pain, discomfort or injury. It is during this time, with these questions, that I will be able to understand best what stretches or mobility you might want to carry out in your own time. I will refer to this as self care going forward. I then compound that with how your movement presents actively and passively.
Part two of your consultation is receiving the treatment that I feel will best suit your needs.
To finish I will explain how your treatment plan should address the pain or discomfort you are experiencing, what a followup session could look like and, as best as I can, how many sessions it should take to resolve.
The full session time you book will be spent continuing with your treatment plan. Usually this will look like 25 or 40 minutes on the treatment table receiving the necessary manual therapy techniques to reduce your pain / discomfort. The remaining 5 minutes will be spent adding to your self care routine at home. This time is also used to answer any questions you may have.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation
The 4 week or 8 week block of sessions is a great way to receive treatment and rehabilitation to any injury or chronic injury you have sustained. To recover from MSK Injury involves thoughtful planning on reducing the associated pain, integrating movement followed by resistance techniques at the appropriate timeline. These sessions will follow a treatment plan that I will devise based on our consultation to guide you back to your sport with ability and confidence.
Show intention for Block sessions
If i can see a benefit I will present the idea of block sessions, no obligation of course.
Next appointment, start block of sessions.
Upon receiving your email, I will arrange a time for us to have a consultation to discuss what you're looking to achieve from 8 or 12 sessions ( if not more) and any medical history so considerations can be put in place for our sessions. Following our chat you will fall under one of three training styles. Training for Weightloss, Building muscle or Endurance. My approach is measured and multi faceted taking into consideration mindset, menstruation cycles, neurodivergance, gender and mental health.
