This is more of an interview and a meet and greet followed by a brief treatment.
Come with your health history completed with as much detail as possible, even old injuries are important to note. Bring a list of your medications so I can review what you are taking and if it can have an effect on the treatment modalities I am planning on using with you. Be prepared to discuss at length your past health issues - this can take between 15-20 minutes.
Then basic assessments will be done to determine your overall body alignment, any visible restrictions or tendencies to one side or another, any discrepancies in symmetry. etc. This will be followed by other assessment as needed depending on your condition or complaint. For example if you are coming in with tingling or numbness in your fingers, I am going to perform several tests with you and palpate your fingers, wrist, arm, shoulder and neck to determine the possible cause BEFORE we begin treatment.
Once I have completed the assessment, then we will discuss the treatment plan for this appointment. Following your consent, I will leave the room to wash my hands which will allow you the privacy to disrobe as required for the treatment. Upon my return to the room the treatment will begin.
The treatment will end 10 minutes early to allow you time to get up safely from the table, get dressed again and for us to discuss future treatment plans, self-care (stretches and exercises, use of heat/cold therapy, etc.) and to complete the payment process.
A brief update on how you felt the next day after the treatment (including any soreness, change in pain or range of motion, etc) as well as in the intervening time since your last appointment. This will help to determine if we proceed with the treatment plan as decided in your last treatment or if modifications need to be made. Don't forget to keep me apprised of changes to your medications, sleep patterns, exercise routines, new injuries and stress levels as all of these can have an effect on the results you may or may not be achieving. The treatment will follow and the session will end 5 minutes early to allow you time to get up safely from the table, get dressed and for us to discuss future treatment plans, self-care (stretches and exercises, use of heat/cold therapy, etc.) and to complete the payment process.
