What to Expect in Your First Remedial Therapy Session?

When you come to our clinic for remedial therapy, we understand that it can be a daunting experience, especially if you’re new to it. We want to make sure that you feel at ease, so we’ve created a comprehensive guide to help you understand what to expect during your first remedial therapy session.


The first step in your session will be an intake assessment. This will involve us gathering information about your medical history, current symptoms, and any past injuries or surgeries that may be relevant to your treatment. We’ll also ask you questions about your lifestyle, such as your daily routine and any physical activities you engage in regularly. This information will help us understand your individual needs and develop a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to your specific goals.

Next, we’ll conduct a physical assessment to evaluate your range of motion, posture, and any areas of tension or pain. We’ll ask you to perform a series of movements to help us identify any imbalances or limitations in your body. This information will guide us in developing a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and helps you achieve your goals.

Treatment Plan

Based on the information gathered during the intake and physical assessments, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to your specific needs. Your treatment plan may include a combination of massage therapy, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and other modalities. Our goal is to help you achieve optimal health and wellness by addressing any imbalances, tension, or pain in your body.

Treatment Session

During your first treatment session, we’ll begin working on the areas identified during the physical assessment. We’ll use a combination of techniques to help alleviate any tension, pain, or discomfort you may be experiencing. Our team will explain everything as they go, and you can feel free to ask any questions or express any concerns you may have.

Education and Follow-Up

We’ll also provide you with education on how to maintain your body’s health and wellness through self-care practices and lifestyle modifications. After your first remedial therapy session, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to assess your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed. We’ll continue to work with you to help you achieve your health and wellness goals and support you on your journey to optimal health.

In conclusion, your first remedial therapy session doesn’t have to be scary. Our team is here to support you every step of the way. By following the above steps, you can be confident that you’ll receive customized treatment that’s tailored to your specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can I expect to see results from remedial therapy?
The timing of results can vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. However, many clients report feeling some level of relief after their first session. It’s important to remember that remedial therapy is a process, and significant improvement may require several sessions over time. It’s also important to follow any self-care practices and lifestyle modifications recommended by your therapist to support the effectiveness of your treatment plan.

Can remedial therapy help with stress and anxiety?
Absolutely! Remedial therapy is an excellent way to alleviate stress and anxiety by helping you relax and release tension in your body. During the therapy session, our therapists use a variety of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues in your body, including massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy. By addressing tension and imbalances in the body, we can reduce physical symptoms of stress and anxiety, such as tight muscles, headaches, and shallow breathing. Remedial therapy also promotes the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers, and can help you feel more relaxed and calm. Our goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive environment where you can unwind and let go of your stress and anxiety.

How long does a remedial therapy session last?
A remedial therapy session usually lasts around 60 to 90 minutes. This duration can vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. During the session, our team will work with you to address any imbalances, tension, or pain in your body. We want to make sure that you receive the right amount of time to fully benefit from the treatment, while also fitting into your schedule.

Will I feel pain during my remedial therapy session?
During your remedial therapy session, it is possible to experience some discomfort or sensitivity in the areas being worked on. However, it is important to communicate with your therapist about the pressure and sensations you are feeling. They will adjust the pressure and techniques according to your comfort level to ensure that you receive the most beneficial treatment without causing unnecessary pain. Your therapist will work with you to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed during your session.

Is remedial therapy safe during pregnancy?
Remedial therapy can be a safe and effective way to manage the physical discomforts that often come with pregnancy, such as back pain and muscle tension. However, it’s important to let your therapist know about your pregnancy before your session so they can make any necessary adjustments to ensure your safety and comfort. Your therapist may use modified techniques or avoid certain areas of the body to ensure that both you and your baby remain safe during the session. As always, it’s important to consult with your healthcare provider before beginning any new form of therapy during pregnancy.
