Head To Toe offers a comprehensive package of care designed to cater to each patient’s unique needs. This package can encompass various therapeutic techniques, including manual therapy, health/lifestyle education, self-management guidance, sleep, nutrition and exercise therapy. The selection of techniques is carefully determined based on the individual patient’s requirements to ensure optimal results.
One fundamental principle of Head To Toe is to prioritize patient comfort. Techniques used are never intended to cause pain. In cases where pain is already present, I am trained to avoid exacerbating it by using alternative techniques more suitable for the patient’s condition.
Manual Therapy Techniques:
Head To Toe employs various manual therapy techniques to address a wide range of musculoskeletal and systemic issues. These techniques include:
- Stretching Muscles: using muscle stretching techniques to improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and enhance overall mobility. This gentle approach can help alleviate discomfort caused by muscle imbalances.
- Articulatory Techniques: These involve the precise movement and manipulation of joints. Articulatory techniques are employed to restore joint function, relieve stiffness, and promote proper alignment.
- Visceral Techniques: HTT may perform techniques on the abdomen to address issues related to organs such as the stomach and intestines. Visceral techniques aim to enhance organ function and alleviate associated discomfort.
- Cranial Techniques: Cranial techniques involve gentle manipulation of the fascia, the membranous tissues that envelop various structures in the body, including the head. This approach, called cranial Biobasics, is especially well-suited for treating young children and newborn infants due to its non-invasive nature.
Rehabilitation and Patient-Centered Care:
HTT is patient-centric, meaning that treatments are tailored to meet each individual’s unique needs and expectations. As a result, two patients with the same condition may receive different treatments and advice after a consultation. However, both patients can expect to benefit equally from the personalized care they receive to address their specific health concerns.
