The initial visit will last approximately 40 minutes and will include a complete medical history, vitals, orthopedic exams, neurological exams and a functional movement test. Please bring a pair of shorts and t-shirt for your initial visit.
Each subsequent visit should last approximately 20 minutes, and will consist of treatment and a detailed explanation of self-guided therapy to be completed outside of the office. To obtain the best results from treatment, patients will need to complete additional therapy on their own.
At Washington Injury and Sports Performance Clinic we believe that treatment of all injuries fall into three separate phases. These phases of treatment are the relief phase, corrective phase and the preventative (wellness) phase.
During the initial phase of treatment, which can last between 4-8 weeks with 2-3 treatments a week, our treatment objective is to get you out of pain.
During the corrective phase the patient is no longer feeling pain but the injured tissues need more treatment to completely heal and strengthening exercises to help reduce re-occurrence of the initial injury, this phase usually can last between 1-6 months with treatment occurring between once a week and once a month.
The preventative phase is a continuation of the corrective phase with the objective of preventing an injury from occurring before it happens. This is accomplished by continued specific athletic training and occasional treatments. Any serious athlete should recognize that this phase should continue as long as they are participating in their sport.
