At Sport Therapy St. Ives, during your first consultation, we will take a comprehensive medical history, that takes into account your lifestyle, level of physical activity, work environment, nutritional intake, along with any related medical history. In order to compile an effective treatment plan, we will focus on the mechanisms that are causing your problem. During the consultation, your posture, movement, and gait will assessed. Your gate, range of movement and flexibility will be measured to establish a base line, from which to gauge treatment progression.
The initial consultation will last for up to one hour, followed with treatment of thirty to forty-five minutes. During consultation or treatment, the client may withdraw at any time without any further obligation. Sport Therapy Saint Ives, will not undertake any treatment, unless the condition is fully understood.
