The Initial Evaluation is suggested so your therapist can determine exactly what is going on with your body: Your assessment will include the range of motion of your joints, muscular strength, sitting, walking and standing posture; You will discuss therapies you have tried in the past, etc, and then based on these results, a full therapy plan will be designed to give you the quickest pain relief and the most comprehensive improvements.
At the very 1st session you should start to see improvement, and at the conclusion of the Accelerated Package, you should see a marked improvement in your condition. You will also feel confident in what you will be doing to maintain your ‘new and improved’ condition, such as knowing how and when to do the Actions, how to maintain your posture, strength and flexibility.
The Accelerated Package (Initial Evaluation plus four sessions) should be scheduled close together with a day or two in-between, for example, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Monday.
Additional individual appointments:
If needed, additional sessions are scheduled on an as-needed- basis. Depending on your condition, these follow-up sessions may be with an Active Myofascial Therapist or another therapy provider.
Although it is not optimal, if the full Accelerated Package is not something you can afford now due to scheduling or budget needs, we still encourage you to receive at least one or two individual AMT sessions so you can experience at least some improvements.
In the individual sessions your therapist will perform a quick assessment before and after, and provide the therapy she feels would benefit you the most.
Therapists are encouraged to allow their patients and clients continued access to their expertise for any related problem that comes up, once you have completed the Accelerated Package.
Active Myofascial Therapy can be received at Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness Center in San Francisco with either the founder of AMT, Irene Diamond, RT, or other qualified Active Myofascial Therapists.
