Five Elements of Recovery:
Posture and Gait Assessment
All injuries to the body affect how our muscles keep our bones in balance. Correcting imbalance helps the body to prevent any future unnecessary complications from postural trauma post operatively.
Muscular Abilities with Range of Motion
Limitations creates room for improvement and full recovery potential. We use a Goniometer to assess your movement.
A new powerful muscular therapy which helps the body to speed up its post-operative re-connection process. It allows muscles to be used correctly again after the trauma of an operation and anesthetic. Full use of muscles creates maximum lymphatic movement for the removal of waste fluid. This is essential for the lymphatic system which speeds up the body`s own ability to heal.
Lymphatic Pressure Pumping Massage
These rhythmic pressure movements and manipulations keep the lymphatic system working at its optimum level, particularly important post-surgery. It helps to re-establish lymphatic pathways usually disrupted during surgery.
