Connect Therapy™ is a specialised assessment and treatment approach that captures the whole picture of your problem, rather than focusing on just the symptoms.
Created by Dr Linda-Joy Lee, a leading Canadian physiotherapist in the professional field, Connect Therapy™, is in our eyes, the evolution of physiotherapy and has developed the skills of our physiotherapist’s beyond the average physio clinic.
Your detailed 1 hour initial assessment with your Connect Therapist, will involve a full body assessment to determine what may be contributing to your problem. Our aim, is to optimise the function of all areas’ of the body, in order to maximise your ability to move and perform which will can in turn, result in a decrease in pain.
The following examples are common presentations that we see in the clinic;
- Groin pain or hip pain that results from the same foot being tight or immobile, often from an old ankle sprain.
- Low back pain that results from one or both hips being tight and limiting movement in the pelvis
- Neck pain and headaches that results from a shoulder limiting movement, often from an old shoulder injury
- Knee pain that results from stiffness and immobility in the rib cage, that results in more weight over the same foot
These are just a few examples of how other areas of the body can impact another region, your pattern will be individual to your body which is why each assessment is tailored to you and is always explained in detail by your therapist.
Can these issues be resolved? The answer is yes, however, part of the result will come from your active input into the process. Yes, you guessed it, exercise. Our clients that gain the best results are those that follow their exercise program, that is individually tailored to your own needs.
You can expect to be educated on your presenting problem, our therapist’s ensure that time is allowed for this important process. You will be guided on ways to help and manage your problem at home, including a detailed exercise program. You will also find that your mobility, power, endurance and strength will improve as you make global changes to your body.
Do you feel you are not recovering from your pain or injury as quickly as you would like? Do you feel like past injuries are impacting your pain further up or down the chain in your body? Do you feel like something is missing from your recovery and you would like a more detailed assessment to find the underlying cause?
Perhaps a Connect Therapy approach is for you!
