During your first session, which lasts approximately 45 minutes, we will gather information about your background, medical history, general health, and any medications you may be taking. This information is necessary to provide you with the best possible care tailored to your specific circumstances.
In addition to the initial session, it’s important to note that subsequent sessions typically last around 30 minutes. During these sessions, we will discuss your progress and any concerns or issues you may be experiencing. Our goal is to work collaboratively with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and helps you achieve your desired outcomes.
During treatment, we will start by releasing and relaxing muscles and stretching stiff joints using mobilising techniques. We may also carry out spinal manipulations, which are short, quick movements to joints to restore normal joint function and mobility.
After treatment, we may give you instructions on certain activities or procedures to be carried out at home, such as ice or heat application, postural advice, or avoidance of certain activities, as well as home exercises.
The number of treatments needed depends on your specific condition. We will discuss the condition and any predisposing and maintaining factors, as well as treatment options. Regular treatment is essential to the process, and we arrange treatments around your schedule.
It is common for some patients to feel a little sore or stiff after treatment, which is normal and usually lasts no more than 24-48 hours. We will provide any necessary post-treatment advice to minimize any discomfort.
