Whether you’re on stage 1 trying to alleviate pain and uncomfortable symptoms or stage 8, engaging in maintenance and preventative care there is always room for improvement!
- Suffering Stage
You’re in pain and you’re suffering. This is when most patients decide to come and see a physiotherapist or chiropractor.
- Easing Stage
You’ve been seeing a professional and while you are still in pain, the pain is just starting to ease. You are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
- Recovering Stage
You’re on an appropriate treatment plan and the trajectory is looking good. You’re still in pain but you’re doing your rehab exercises and your body has started recovering.
- Stabilising Stage
Your body’s functional movements are beginning to stabilise. Daily activities are beginning to feel more ‘normal’.
- Healing Stage
You’re no longer feeling pain and most other symptoms have been alleviated. It’s easy to assume you’re all ‘better’ but it’s likely that medical attention is still required.
- Correcting Stage
So the pain is gone but there is still room for improvement. Now we need to work on improving your biomechanics.
Strengthen your primary and supporting muscles to improve the body’s biomechanics. You are beginning to engage in preventative care.
- Optimising Stage
Good is good but great is better. There is always more work to be done. We continue to improve proprioception (that’s your body’s ability to know where it is in space), balance, coordination and fine motor movements.
