“It’s a fact that the human body is a whole, not just a sum of all the parts”
Each cell in your body has a connection with the next, and when Ros and I treat patients we pay attention to these very important links and internal messages, respecting the individual parts and problems but remembering the whole picture at the same time.
We always take a full history, sometimes asking questions that go way back into childhood to discover exactly when there may have been a fall, trauma, or life event that may have quietly laid the ground for low level tension through the nervous system, leading to a greater sensitivity to injury which almost becomes an ‘overreaction’ of the body.
Other times muscles injured at an early age just slowly adapt to the change caused, which only creates problems later in life. Often when people come to seek our help with pain or dysfunction , they have an underlying chronic dysfunction that has been there for years, exacerbated by movements such as a recent fall, lifting something heavy, strenuous gardening, or pushing it a little harder at their favourite sport.
To fix these problems we have a simple and effective process:
- We take a history to work out where the the issue beings, often where the pain isn’t being presently experienced. This will be where we commence treatment.
- Use the Hendrickson Method soft tissue mobilisations that reach both fascia and muscle.
- Explore how to best support your neurological response to treatment.
- Creating a movement plan to best support your recovery.
- In addition you could and would be welcome to join Sue at one of our Pilates sessions.
We always thoroughly explain our findings and your treatment plan. Our aim is for you to feel at ease and fully informed, so you can understand and be in control of your recovery process.
Combined, all these factors will create a pain free treatment and absolutely help fix your dysfunction.
Our practitioners, Sue and Ros, are both Hendrickson Method certified, and Sue is the UK’s first Hendrickson Method teacher.
