Session with Sherlock Holmes

➢ Investigate
➢ Identify

This is a 60 min investigation and treatment session. A physiotherapist will use clinical reasoning and a battery of tests to understand the cause of injury, pain or movement dysfunction. S/he will then seek to understand individual needs and goals and offer pathways for treatment.

* This can also be a stand-alone session for baseline assessment of individual capabilities and

Often rehabilitation process becomes challenging as people loose track of their focus and purpose of training, which may lead to lack of adherence and motivation. The Blackbelt mindset puts emphasis on creating a positive experience of the rehabilitation process and gives our clients a sense of celebration upon achieving their goals. This is a six week package which is designed to bridge the gap between injury and performance. It includes pain management strategies, coping strategies and a combination of manual therapy and exercise-based rehabilitation services to help clients reach their goals. It consists of 11 +1 session. A combination of 7 X 45 min sessions and 4 X 30 min sessions + 1 X 45 min free session.

I'm in a constant fight or flight state, why?

Repeated exposure to stressful environments forces the sympathetic nervous system to be in a constant over drive.

The body's equilibrium is regulated by two branches of the autonomic nervous system:

♦ The sympathetic nervous system which is responsible for the "fight and flight" response
♦ The parasympathetic nervous systems that governs the rest and rejuvenation mode

How Can Structural Restoration Help You?
SR stimulates the parasympathetic branch of the nervous system by working systematically from superficial layers to the deeper layers. This process helps to de-threaten the whole nervous system and inhibits the sympathetic over drive.

♦ Tunes heart rate
♦ Decreases perceived fatigue
♦ Reduces frequency of chronic symptoms such as tension, headaches and migraines
♦ Helps to restore dysfunctional breathing patterns by reducing structural restrictions
♦ Helps manage painful conditions
♦ Lowers anxiety and stress

I often feel sore from my HIT workout, why?

> After a good workout most people feel sore and stiff, which is called the delayed onset of muscular fatigue (DOMS).
> It is a natural response of the body after a good workout.
> Sometime people do not recover enough before the following workout.
> Some people take a longer time to recover from DOMS, which may hinder optimal performace and training opportunities.

Soft tissue mobilization is most effective in reducing DOMS as compared to the other modalities such as stretching, anti-inflammatory interventions, cryotherapy or cold water immersion, active recovery and compression garments.

How Can Structural Restoration Help You?
SR helps you to recover quicker by reducing muscle damage and inflammation. This is done through an increase in tissue profusion and lymphatic drainage.

> Reduces perceived pain
> Decreases exercise-induced muscle damage
> Decreases inflammation
> Enhances lymphatic drainage
> Boosts tissue profusion
> Facilitates readiness for undertaking further physical activity

I often get muscle strains and sprains easily, why?

✷ Sudden overload or repetitive stress traumas cause accumulation of micro traumas.
✷ These micro traumas lead to soft tissue maladaptive patterns and joint restrictions.
✷ The body then compensates to accommodate these changes.
✷ Injury may occur due to compensations or maladaptive patterns.

✷ The soft tissue and myofascial structures (muscle and fibrous connection tissue) permeate the whole body from head to toes.
✷ These structures are exposed to dynamic forces.
✷ A healthy body maintains this delicate balance by distributing the tensional and compressional forces through the whole myofascial web.

How Can Structural Restoration Help You?
SR aims to restore these compensations by increasing glide ability of soft tissue structures and increasing joint space through orthopedic mobilization.

✷ Reduces hyper sensitive trigger points (painful muscular spots)
✷ Reduces muscle spasm in people with persistent lower back pain
✷ Lengthens chronically shortened muscles
✷ Relieves compression and stress on joints
✷ Creates joint space through orthopedic mobilization
