Here you will find a selection of the questions we get asked most often. If your question isn’t here, be sure to get in touch. We’d like to make sure you achieve the long-term results you always wanted.
At RedoHealth we practice ConnectTherapy™ and the Thoracic Ring Approach™ – which means that we look at your whole body. We have a special interest in persistent or recurrent injuries, but see patients from acute to chronic stages of injury. We find that by understanding the interconnectedness of the human body and the influences of both internal and external factors on your movement we are able to find the driver for your problem (related to pain, function and/or performance) and offer you both short term pain relief and a long term strategy for getting you back to doing what you love!
In your follow-up treatments we are always re-assessing your movement and progress. This will again involve feeling your body as you move through a variety of tasks. We combine movement and manual therapy, so often do manual releases through different movements, positions and most importantly through your exercises. We will also review your exercises, progress your exercises and address any questions or concerns you have. As your improve, progress and work towards new goals we will continually adjust and adapt your treatment plan and exercise program.
While we have a special interest in persistent pain and recurrent injuries we treat a variety of injuries from the acute to chronic stage.
Common injuries we treat:
When you come in for your physiotherapy assessment we want to hear your story – what’s been going in the past and what your current difficulties are. We will ask you a variety of questions about your injury, health and movement/exercise. This gives us the chance to connect and really understand all the current influences and their connections (in your body and your life) on how you feel and how you move.
Your physical assessment will involve a gait analysis and a movement screening process whereby we identify your key driver (s) by both looking at and feeling you move through a variety of tasks. Based on our findings we will come up with a plan of treatment.
Regarding treatment in the first session, how much and the types of intervention depends on what you are coming in for and how much time we need to get a full understanding of your story.
For acute single area problems your first session will definitely involve a combination of advice, exercises and manual therapy.
For those coming in with more recurrent or chronic problems we may spend more time on your story and physical assessment and your “treatment” may involve more advice and exercise to start with more manual treatment in your first treatment session.
If you have a more persistent problem with multiple areas of pain we do offer longer – 90 minute initial consultations that will allow us to give you more hands-on treatment in the first session. These are also helpful if you are traveling a far distance to come see us. Please call us to book a longer initial consultation.
