The Right STT Practitioner
As with any health professional, it’s important to find someone with both the appropriate qualifications and someone you feel comfortable with.
Recommendations from your doctor, physio, friends and family are a good starting point. You should also check your practitioner’s qualifications and any associations they belong to. As an experienced practitioner I am well versed in the integration of my treatment with their Physiotherapy Exercise Physiology or rehabilitation officer that may be involved with the patient plan.
What to expect
Once you’ve chosen a practitioner, you may be asked:
- To bring any relevant reports you have of existing problems
- About a history of your general health and well-being
- Where you may be experiencing pain and the triggers for it
- To complete a series of movements to assess your pain
- What expectations you have for your treatment
After assessing your condition your treatment plan will be discussed, including how the treatment will work, any side-effects you may experience, how long you may be required to undergo the treatment, and whether you will need to complete any activities at home.
Depending on your treatment, you may feel a bit sore the next day, but Soft Tissue Therapy should not ordinarily be painful. Your comfort and well-being are always the priority, so if something doesn’t feel right, always speak up. You are always in charge of your health.
