The first thing your we do at Thryve Healing and Performance is take a thorough health history. This history will include family, occupational, and past medical histories as well as a history of your dietary and exercise habits and previous care received. All too often in today’s medical climate, the patient is rushed through their initial consult with their physician and critical elements of their health are missed. We removed ourselves from the high-volume medical model to spend the time necessary to completely understand your complex medical situation. Next, a physical examination will be performed which may include reviewing x-rays, analyzing gait, posture and mechanics, along side orthopedic and neurological testing. All of these elements are important components of your total health profile, and vital in evaluating your health status. Once we have identified the cause of your current condition, we will begin care by administering manual treatment and/or soft-tissue therapies, joint mobilizations, and muscle energy techniques as well as Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation or PNF. PNF is a more advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion. In addition, we will pay close attention to your muscles and work to balance their tone. Many different methods are employed to reduce musculature in spasm and also to strengthen weak muscles, including myofascial release and sports massage techniques. By the time you leave, you will have completed a comprehensive total body assessment, receive your first day of treatment, and have a tailored plan for how we will proceed with your care moving forward.
