1. What can I expect when coming in for my initial assessment?
A thorough assessment based on your injury, history and dysfunction. Initial assessments will typically last about an hour to an hour and a half and will include treatment on the first day. Athletes may also be screened with the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) at this time. After we go through the initial assessment and outline a plan of management, we will provide treatment to you on the first visit.
2. Will I feel pain?
You may or may not feel pain after treatment. Now before I scare you, pain would be things like soreness, or muscular type pain from working out. This may or may not occur and is usually minimal if it does. This is however a “good pain” in that we are creating changes and we do usually see results after just one or two sessions.
We do ask that you drink lots of water the days of treatment.
3. Can I resume my sport or activity after treatment?
That depends. Often times we may have to make adjustments to the activity in question and some form of the activity can be resumed. All things are taken as a case by case basis to make sure that the patient does not get hurt. Your health is obviously of utmost importance to us.
4. How long do I get treated for?
This also depends on how long you have been injured. An acute minor injury can sometimes be resolved in 2 to 5 visits while a chronic complex injury may need 10-12+ visits. One thing is certain is that you will get lasting results.
