The initial consultation will generally be comprised of 4 parts:
During the initial consultation the practitioner will ask questions about your current pain or issue as well as on current lifestyle. After the practitioner has gotten to know you better they will decide whether you are suitable to treat and how best to treat you. The assessment will involve many different movements and muscle testing to help us diagnose the primary problem. The best type of clothing to wear to carry out these assessments is usually shorts and for the ladies a sports bra/singlet. Depending on your diagnosis and how you respond to treatment, we will either be able to give you a tailored treatment plan or, if necessary, referral to the correct specialist or for imaging.The tailored treatment plan will depend on the individual, patient history and their response to the initial treatment. Along with advice exercise prescription, treatment will involve one or more of these modalities:
- Soft tissue therapy
- Joint manipulation/mobilisation
- Dry Needling
- Fascial releases
- Stretching & Exercise rehabilitation.
Ongoing consultations will be shortened versions of the initial consultation, with reassessments and treatment changes throughout to make sure you’re staying on track.
ABOUT OUR ALLIED HEALTH TEAM
Ian is a graduate from the Masters of Chiropractic at Macquarie University and completed his undergraduate studies in anatomy and physiology at the University of New South Wales. He is now furthering studies with a Masters of Sports Science in chiropractic.
Enjoying an active childhood, Ian has experienced the health benefits from an extensive and successful youth sporting career, however, like many others has suffered a fair share of varying injuries, most of which have been successfully treated and managed by a chiropractor. Through personally experiencing the positive effects of chiropractic on sporting injuries and the health improvements that accompanied the treatments, he has been inspired to pursue a career in the profession to help both children and adults enjoy and continue an active and well balanced lifestyle.
Ian believes that with the combination of good scientific knowledge and a diverse range of manual adjustment and soft tissue techniques he is well equipped to meet the challenges of each patient.
Emily first saw the benefit of Remedial Massage while working as an electrician. The treatments and results had such a profound impact that she changed careers and has now been working as a Remedial Massage Therapist for 4 years, completing her Diploma of Remedial Massage at Meadowbank TAFE in June of 2014.
Emily leads an active lifestyle, enjoying running, swimming, cycling, rowing, yoga and bodyweight training, so she understands how important treating and preventing injuries is for her clients.
Her treatments are tailored to relieve pain, correct muscle imbalance, improve blood flow, aid digestion and promote relaxation. To do this she utilises techniques such as Myofascial release, trigger points, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage and assisted/resisted stretches. She also holds a certificate in Pregnancy Massage.
She aims not only to improve function and quality of life for her clients, but also to educate them on posture and body mechanics so unnecessary stresses on the musculoskeletal system are minimized.
