What does treatment look like?

The first visit: You fill out a health intake to form in order so we are aware of issues that are going on with your health, including injury/accident history, surgical history, and any medical diagnoses.

From there we can begin to set goals for the treatment to ensure that we are on the same page with regards to the timeline and the expectations of the treatment. Treatment will then begin with active and passive motion tests to see where your body has stopped moving properly. The first treatment begins with a very global approach to “clear the smoke”. Although the first treatment is not typically a solution for all problems, it helps to realign and stabilize the body, and give you a glimpse of what true health could feel like when your posture is improved. Motion tests are always repeated at the end of treatment to verify that motion has been improved.

After the initial session, we should have a better understanding on what treatment dose is best, based on how you recover from the initial treatment. It is normal for the body to be sore for a few days following a treatment, as the body “shakes off the rust” and begins to move better.

3 STAGES OF TREATMENT

This is the blueprint I use for longer standing issues. Within each stage treatments are spaced out every 1-2 weeks. In between each stage there is typically a 2-3 week break to give the body a chance to heal for the next phase.

1. Foundational Treatments

(1-4 treatments) Foundational treatments are similar to building a strong foundation and framework to a house. If a house is built wrong, you can try again and again to replace the broken windows, but it’s not a solution. By using this, we ensure success in the later stages of treatment, as well as clear up many problems that have compensated for the true issues.

2. Unlocking The Problem

 (2-4 treatments) The second treatment phase involves finding the key areas that have laid the groundwork for holding back your health. These may be anything from old ankle sprains, back problems, rib problems, shoulder issues, etc. that didn’t receive proper treatment initially. Over the course of the first few treatments, often these old aches and pains will re-awaken, providing us with a chance to properly treat them as you recover.

3. The Clean Up Treatments

(1-3 treatments) Although the last phase involves shorter treatments, they are equally important to the previous two. These treatments help relatively small and specific areas that have typically been around a long time. By removing these restrictions your body should be freely capable of moving and doing a much better job of being resilient to physical and other stresses that hit you throughout the day. A free body is a free mind.

Reminder

Keep in mind that some people have had less exposure to injuries over time and can often progress more quickly through these issues. Some problems that have been there for a long time may not respond so quickly. Classical Osteopathic treatment estimates about a month of healing for every year the problem has been there. Although we can certainly improve things, one should not expect a back injury of 20 years to fully recover in 2-3 months.
