During your initial evaluation, a highly qualified physical therapist will begin by listening to you and understanding your problem. You will be asked about your past medical history and your future wellness goals. The therapist will then assess your posture, movement, gait, joint motion and strength to identify faulty patterns that are causing or perpetuating your pain. Once the therapist has identified the source and cause of your pain, you will be given specific strategies to eliminate it. Some of these may involve changing your posture or movement behavior, others may involve specific relaxation techniques (massage, breathing) or strengthening exercises. You may be referred to massage therapy, acupuncture, Feldenkrais, nutrition council, meditation or other mind-body sessions.
In one-on-one 45 minute treatments, you will receive hands-on manual therapy. Our therapists will help to re-align and mobilize your joints and release restrictions that are contributing to your pain. When strengthening exercises are necessary, you will be trained by your therapist to perform them efficiently and then asked to repeat some at home on your own. Your sessions will take place in KIMA’s private treatment rooms or spacious exercise studio using Pilates reformers, Cadillac, linear and pivotal whole body vibration units, Bike, Treadmill and speed pulley system.
