Physiotherapy for multiple body areas
Many complaints left untreated will cause a degree of compensation in movement and function, and can create secondary problems. Often it is the secondary problem that brings a person to seek assistance.
If you have multiple body areas that need treatment, you may need a longer session to feel the benefits.
It is advisable that you begin your treatment with a longer session so that you can receive thorough exercise instruction and self-care advice without compromising the time spent on manual interventions.
Physiotherapy Package (single body area)
6x 30 minute sessions
Any long standing complaint of 10weeks or more, is likely to take some time to resolve. Most complaints begin to improve after the first few sessions, but are unlikely to fully resolve in less than 6 sessions.
If you have a single body area of longstanding pain or disfunction, a package is the most cost effective way to proceed. At the 6 week point, you will know whether your complaint is improving, or if a more invasive medical approach is for you.
Many complaints require intermittent attention to prevent a problem reoccurring. In the case of spinal injuries, surgeries or muscular complaints, a regular check up and targeted massage can improve the long term benefits of treatment, and help you to progress your tolerance to aggravating factors (like work, sports...).
Deep Tissue Massage
Sports and muscular injuries to large muscle groups often require a more invasive deeper massage treatment to prevent tightening around scar tissue.
This is also helpful to athletes preparing for events, and can speed up post event recovery.
Remote Triage Physiotherapy Assessment
Research suggest that most complaints respond favourably to exercises in the first 10weeks, thereafter it is unlikely that exercises alone are effective. Every client can expect to receive exercises to assist with recovery, and this will also for a part of your treatment.
Many complaints resolve, and the therapeutic exercises become unappealing and forgotten. After 2-4weeks, you will be ready for a progression to more challenging exercises to help turn a weakness into a strength.
