What to Expect
Our Treatment Model
What most people think of when they hear the term “Physical Therapy” is very far from what you experience at Resonance Physiotherapy & Sports Performance. You do not enter a gym-type setting with a lot of exercise machines and modalities like e-stim and ultrasound units. You enter a peaceful, inviting space with a few key components: Our treatment tables, our diagnostic skills, and our hands.
All of our patients are viewed and evaluated in a holistic way. Every part of the body is connected with all other areas, and you may be surprised by the implications of this when looking for the true underlying cause of your pain.
Though the causes of a person’s pain are often in the same part of the body it is experienced, quite often they lie elsewhere in the body.
For example, it is not uncommon to find the true source of a patient’s back pain in an ankle, knee, or hip that is not moving correctly. Maybe there was a previous injury or surgery that left the area weak or less mobile, and the change in movement resulted in injury-causing compensations elsewhere. What happens if your car alignment is off?? Eventually something is going to wear out and likley not evenly side to side.
As all the contributing factors are discovered, we will give you activities to perform daily as well as potential life changes to be made in order to speed up your reacovery. Our treatment mindset is based on the science through the Posutral Resotration Institute and the goal is to improve overall movement patterns and tissues dysfucntion by using the nervous system to ensure lasting changes.
Often we need to seek assistance from other providers to speed up recovery and peel away layers of pain adn compensation.
Though it may take some time to collect all relevant information, we feel that you should receive as much treatment as possible on the first visit. For this reason, treatment is generally mixed in with the evaluation so that you experience the effects in your first session.
Though movement and exercise are vital in all our patients’ plans of care, we do not agree with having patients pay to perform simple exercises in the clinic when they can be done as part of a home exercise program. Therefore, when exercises or stretches are needed, we give thorough instruction with hands on guidance to ensure proper execution of the activities as the nervous system will ultimatley decide of the technique will help you on your road to getting active again.
At Resonance Physiotherapy & Sports Performance, time is spent only on the components of treatment and rehabilitation that you could not reproduce on your own.
Our goal with every patient is to quickly identify the true causes of your symptoms, and then apply highly effective techniques to resolve your pain and get you back to doing the activities you want as soon as possible… without pain and limitations.
With the hands-on techniques we use, restorative acticvities, and the fact that each treatment is an hour of one-on-one care, the time it takes to resolve pain and injury is usually far less than at other clinics.
