Clients may feel post-treatment pain for the first 12-24 hours due to the release of the chemicals, that were causing the tightness and adhesions in muscles, into the bloodstream.

Follow your occupational therapist’s advice of stretches and exercises, and drink water post-treatment.

Occupational therapy is a hands-on profession that takes a holistic approach to client care considering occupations and life roles. Treatment aims at empowering clients to manage their own health.

Generally it takes between 3-4 weeks to gain permanent results and muscle memory changes. However, symptom relief can happen as muscles release in the first couple of sessions.

Everybody is different therefore treatment programs are tailored to the individual. Initially it is best if treatment is closer together to prevent muscles from going back to old habits. As soon as changes start to happen, clients treatments are spaced to a maintenance level so their bodies take responsibility, rather than relying on treatment.

Clients should wear comfortable loose clothing for their treatment. As we treat through clothing, please avoid jeans and thick fabrics where possible.

Everyone can, whether you have a specific injury or concern, want to improve in a desired activity, or if you would just like to improve your general function and overall wellbeing soft tissue therapy can benifit you!
