Treating for performance & function
We treat for performance & function – Not for pain removal.
Health care is a booming industry and is heavily geared towards treating for pain. A mindset shift is needed towards treating for function and performance. Although the treatments themselves will appear similar the main difference is the mindset of the client. Treating for performance and function draws a positive picture working towards something and not running away from something.
Correct diagnosis, adherence to rehab exercise prescription, and a solid training program are the biggest keys to success. Having a positive mindset geared towards performance improvement aids results immensely.
Treating for performance and function doesn’t just end when the client stops feeling pain. Rarely is the issue facing the client resolved upon the resolution of pain, it’s a very good step in the right direction but not the end place the client should be in to fully resolve the issue and stop its recurrence.
