These are just two examples of common but utterly surprising movement patterns we often uncover within a session using the ConnectTherapy and Thoracic Ring Approach.
No matter where your area of injury – we look beyond the area of pain and get deeper to the underlying source of your injury or movement problem.
We are the physio’s you see when you feel like you’ve tried everything and the physio’s you see when you want lasting change.
Find the underlying cause of your injury or movement problem
Your first 1 hour ConnectTherapy will involve the physiotherapist getting a detailed history of your current movement problem and go right back into your past injuries and health conditions. Often old issues can present even today as changes in the way you control your body.
After connecting all the dots of your history we then do a head to toe assessment of your movement and posture to determine what areas could be contributing to your current injury or movement problem.
By doing manual corrections of these poorly controlled areas and using the rigorous Diagnostic Chart developed by Dr Linda Joy Lee, we are able to determine the exact areas you need to address with both exercise and hands-on physiotherapy treatment.
What conditions do we treat with ConnectTherapy?
Any muscular, bone or joint condition can benefit from this style of physiotherapy.
We find that for chronic pain and long standing issues we are often able to find a solution that has otherwise gone missed. Common examples of this would be a chronic back pain which has an underlying hip control issue that has never been addressed or plantar fascia foot pain which is actually caused by poor core stability.
For acute injuries and post surgical rehabilitation we find that the model offers an additional layer of effectiveness, in that we are able to prevent the onset of compensatory movement patterns. An example of this would be a bracing of the shoulder and upper thoracic region after a knee operation.
