Once you are pain free and we’ve got you moving, what comes next? You see your dentist every three to six months for a check up; you take your car for a regular service or MOT – doesn’t your structure, health and well-being deserve the same care and attention?
A preventative/maintenance treatment programme can be extremely beneficial in the following ways:
Maintenance treatment can be very important for keeping your free from pain, limber and strong.
Maintenance programmes are developed to suit your individual needs depending on your original condition and lifestyle.
May help to reduce the risk of relapse, particularly if your problem has been long standing.
It is preferable to relying on short bursts of intensive treatment, if and when a problem returns.
A maintenance programme is designed for you, therefore the time duration between sessions may vary from every few weeks to three, six or twelve months, depending on your needs.
Ultimate flexibility – patients may adjust their preventative treatment programme at any stage.
The aim of a maintenance treatment programme is to treat and educate you, to ensure that you are fully aware of your physical capabilities, as well as limitations and to empower you to significantly minimise the chances of your initial symptoms returning and reduce disability. Throughout maintenance treatment our focus is to:
Monitor changes in your overall health
Monitor and adjust your exercise plan and ensure you are performing them correctly and regularly
Treat those areas that have been the source of your pain and their associated areas
Postural and lifestyle advice
Offer rehabilitation exercise and relaxation programmes, to improve your overall health and well-being.
