Laying the foundation for total health
Once we’ve had the chance a meet you, examine you and present our Report Of Findings, you will be prescribed a bespoke care plan.
In some ways, one could say that our care system is similar to house-building. It must start at the foundations and finish at the roof. If you tried to put your walls up before you had solid foundations, the walls would be unstable and may even eventually collapse. These concepts do apply to your body’s healing as well.
London Shock Wave & Sports Injury Clinic care can address many common reasons why people experience acute or chronic pain and other short or long-term health challenges. If something is not right with your body’s foundations, then this needs to be addressed before real optimum health can be realised.
With your bespoke care plan, your body must go through particular stages of care before healing can begin and excellent health will stabilise.
There are three phases of a care plan that are:
Phase 1: Crisis Care
If you are in pain when you first visit us, our first goal would be to help you relieve that pain as soon as possible. The severity of the underlying pain causing challenge will determine the time it takes to move through this phase. Typically the number of visits in this period is normally at its highest frequency and may require multiple visits each week.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
The goal of the Corrective phase is to remove the cause of your problem and to restore your bodies functioning back to 100%. Care in this phase can range from exercises, further treatment, orthotics, advice... well you get the point. Again, this phase of care is very dependent on how severe the problem is and how long it has been there. The frequency of care may still be multiple visits per week, but perhaps not as frequent as in the relief phase.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Finally, once your body has had the chance to heal, it is important to continue with maintenance or wellness care by attending periodic adjustments or rehab care to avoid further problems in the future. This approach ensures your body is functioning at its optimum and doesn't slip into old habits over the larger length of time often likened to an MOT. Your health goals together with your practitioner’s best advice will determine the frequency of care in this phase.
