Movement and postural assessment
To optimise physical performance it is important to identify faulty movement patterns to prevent compensation and overloading to muscles and joints that could result in injury.
Functional, active, passive and resisted tests are used to identify stresses, which our bodies are subjected to from general movements and activities. A movement and postural assessment takes up to 30 minutes, allowing the therapist to determine a structured, personalised treatment plan – this is emailed to you approximately three days after your appointment.
Treatment plans are made in agreement with you and can be created on a case-to-case basis, typically aimed around five to ten sessions before leading into ‘maintenance massage‘ or you can chose one of our pre-built packages. All traetment plans include a complimentary rehabilitation tool such as a stretch band or a massage ball and 10% off any extra rehabilitation products purchased through your Therapist during the treatment period.
Treatments themselves may include remedial massage and techniques like Trigger Point release, active or passive and dynamic stretches, myofascial release techniques and/or suction cupping, active or passive mobilisation of joints, the use of specific warming balms, sports or kinesio taping and reassessment to maintain focus on the goals set initially.
