         The Process 

 

CONSULTATION - 90 mins

I believe the most important part of the entire process is your consultation. I pride myself on creating a safe, trusting atmosphere in clinic where I can get to know YOU, the symptoms you currently experience and begin to understand the road map that has led you to this point.

After taking a full medical and injury history, I will then perform a series of assessments to get a thorough understanding of why you are in pain. By taking the time to understand some of the seemingly insignificant details, we can then understand why your body presents the way it does and how it has set itself up to best serve you.

ASSESSMENT

While assessing your skeleton in 3 dimensions, I will take note of any deviations, rotations, changes in weight distribution, postural positions that create an imbalance across your body and discover the root cause of your symptoms.

            Standing    Assess your full body posture in stance position (with particular attention paid to your feet - the foundations) and map your 3D postural setup from head to toe.
