KEY FACTS ABOUT THE PAIN CARE CLINIC SESSIONS AND PROGRAMMES:
- Pain Care Clinic locations are at UK London Harley Street, Leeds, Yorkshire, Ilkley, Yorkshire and Brighton & Hove, Sussex
- Therapies consist mainly of myofascial release and advanced massage techniques
- Each session lasts 55 minutes
- A minimum of 6 regular weekly sessions is usually necessary for clients to start feeling sustained benefits.
YOUR FIRST SESSION AT THE PAIN CARE CLINIC
On your first visit we will talk through your current situation and your relevant medical history and treatment. We will also use objective clinical techniques to assess your range of physical movement and level of pain so that we have a benchmark against which to measure future progress. If you are happy, we also aim to start actual hands-on therapy in the first session.
ONGOING THERAPY AT THE PAIN CARE CLINIC
If, at the end of your first session, you feel that an ongoing programme of myofascial release and advanced massage will be of benefit to you then we will encourage you to commit to a course of six regular weekly sessions. As the programme progresses we will discuss with you possible lifestyle and work place changes that may be of benefit to you.
In the 6th session we will assess your progress in terms of physical movement and level of pain. And we will discuss with you any other benefits you may have felt, for example improved sleep and reduction of anxiety.
Our aim is to minimise your pain and maximise your pain-free time between sessions so you can progress to a longer-term maintenance programme as soon as possible.
IN BETWEEN MYOFASCIAL RELEASE AND MASSAGE SESSIONS
As your planned programme progresses we will offer you general advice and suggestions for exercises that you may find useful in between sessions.
We are not fans of the phrase ‘no pain no gain’ as this can be counter-productive and does not reflect the gentle nature of our myofascial release and massage work. So we work with you to keep suggestions realistic while encouraging and supporting you to make gradual improvements to your general flexibility and movement.
