The Phases of Stretch Therapy

1st Session – The Discovery Phase

The client will be asked to complete a questionnaire designed to create an understanding of their desired outcome. The client undergoes thorough physical evaluation, which includes flexibility, stability, balance and physical patterns. Then a treatment protocol/plan will be created basing on the physical assessment.

  3. Goal setting and expectations
  4. Postural evaluation/assessment
  5. Range of Motion (ROM) Test
  6. Discussion on the Treatment plan/protocol
