Barefoot’s 10 step plan
Client’s will often ask us how we will best determine the cause of their symptoms or ask us what sets us apart from other physiotherapy clinics. Our answer is simple, our Barefoot Physiotherapy Treatment Plan.
Every client we see at Barefoot Physiotherapy is always approached with the same treatment plan, a 10 step process to help you get back to living your Barefoot Lifestyle. Now 10 steps may sound like a lot but I’m going to break them down so you can see how they can help you move and feel the best you can.
Whenever anyone comes to Barefoot Physiotherapy we always take the time to discuss their story, and work out what their individual goal of coming to us is (this is one of the best parts because we get to discuss goals and how you can be the best physical version of yourself possible). Our next stage is to always determine if other health professionals or any type of investigation is needed so we can reassure you that not only are you in the best place for your care, but that we are confident we have all the pieces to solve your puzzle.
Your first session with will include us testing to see if your nerves are involved in your condition. Our nerves run throughout our spine branching up into our neck, down to our fingertips and to the tip of our toes. If we determine that your nerves are restricted or you might hear us say ‘grumpy’ we will treat them and then teach you how to keep them happy. This way once our nerves are moving well, our muscles and joints will be able to move freely and it will help us make long lasting improvements to your muscles and joints.
Whole body holistic approach
Once we have made those grumpy nerves happy we will complete a full body assessment testing muscles, joints, movements and accompanying thoughts and worries. This will lead to us completing a systematic testing process to work out the primary cause of your condition, which we can then treat YAY!
Next we are at step 8 (nearly complete), it’s now time to teach you how to take care of the primary cause of your symptoms, with muscle retraining and self-treatment. We will then discuss booking you in for tune ups with increasing intervals to keep your body happy and keep you living your Barefoot Lifestyle.
If this all sounds great to you and you or someone you know is experiencing any muscle joint or possible nerve irritation please contact us. We can determine if it is a musculoskeletal issue before having to see a GP. We are open 5 days a week and a couple Saturdays a month. We have early and late appointments available.
