About Your In Person Session

It all depends on the individual; it probably took a long time to get to your current condition, sometimes it takes a while for you to get out of it. For some, the results are almost immediate, for others it takes longer. Remember, the more consistently you perform your prescribed routines, the sooner you will be pain free and feeling better. It's all up to you!

Each routine builds on the previous routine. There is no magic number of routines, since the layers of compensation and dysfunction are different for everyone. If you have been in pain for years, it will probably require more than one session to get your body to be able to move without limitation. You may need to go through a series of routines that will progressively unravel years of compensation. With each routine your body will increasingly look and feel better.

Everyone responds differently, but generally speaking, a commitment of an hour a day will yield the fastest results. As your body changes, you will need to do less each day to maintain your health. Be sure you let us know how much time you can commit to daily. It will take longer to feel better if you don't commit much time, or if you don't do the routine daily, but it will still help. Just like any exercise program, your results will be determined by the effort you put into the program. You can perform almost all of the stretches and exercises in the comfort of your own home, eliminating extra commuting time to a gym.

Menus are prescribed in a specific manner for specific reason. It is imperative you follow your menu as it is written.

While it is preferable to perform your entire routine in the morning (in order to gain the benefits of an aligned foundation for the rest of your daily activities), it is certainly acceptable to perform the exercises at other times during the day. Performing the exercises properly and on a consistent daily basis is more important than WHEN they are done. It is also acceptable, if necessary, to split the menu of exercises into morning and evening segments. Consult with your therapists about when and how to break up the routine into smaller segments if needed.

This depends entirely on your condition(s) and should be left up to your therapist. Seek advice from your therapist about what to keep doing. Our bodies are designed to move, and all movement should be good for the body. If a specific activity or movement hurts, then the body is alerting you to the fact that something is wrong. You will have to listen to your body to determine how quickly you can get back to your current activities. The pain will diminish as you improve the biomechanics and joint position of your body with the daily routine. You will begin moving with greater mobility, range of motion and body awareness, thus finding greater enjoyment in your current workout program, sports, or daily activities.

The exercises are designed to reintroduce new movement and to improve neuromuscular patterns. In order for the body NOT to fall back into old patterns of misalignment, you must continue to remind the body how it is designed to move. For most of us, there is just not enough activity in our days to keep us from falling back into the old patterns. To continue to reinforce the improved movement of the body, some sort of maintenance routine which triggers muscle memory, will be helpful for the rest of your life. Your therapist can update your routine at any time to add variety and challenge, and to continue to address any lingering biomechanical weaknesses. Just like you brush our teeth every day to prevent decay, you can promote long-term joint and muscle function by doing a few exercises, specifically tailored for your needs, every day.
