ASSESS > TREAT > THRIVE! That’s our motto here at Waverley Myotherapy Clinic. We aim to have our customers feeling like they can take on the world when they walk out of a session!
So how do we do it?
At Waverley Myotherapy Clinic, like most Clinical Myotherapy practitioners we use an evidence based scientific approach.
First we assess your musculoskeletal pain or condition. We use neural tests, range of movement tests and orthopedic tests to determine the most likely cause of your problem. We can assess many things in the clinic room such as a tight muscle, a nerve impingement, a hip impingement, a tendonopathy, a movement pattern problem and much more.
Secondly we treat based on our assessment findings. We have a range of treatment techniques and tools we can use depending on the type of musculoskeletal problem, depending on what has worked for you in the past and working within your comfort zone. For example, if you have a fear of acupuncture needles we can treat in an alternative way.
Third step is to re-test. We want to make sure we are on the right track, so the next thing to do is re assess our original findings. We are looking for things like improved range of motion, return of sensation or strength, reduced pain on certain actions and so on.
To finish off our session we will offer follow up advice or exercises, whatever we think is appropriate in combination with your input to make sure time and lifestyle are taken into consideration. Sometimes the exercises we give are very simple and can be done at home, other times we recommend a exercise specialist to assist such as a Clinical Pilates instructor, Pilates Instructor, Exercise Physiologist, Physiotherapist (who specialises in exercise prescription) or a Personal Trainer.
In no time you will be eyeing off your next mountain to climb, triathalon to run or wave to surf. Whatever it is you love and are itching to get back to our approach of ASSESS > TREAT > THRIVE will help you across the line!
