OUR APPROACH TO YOUR HEALTH
The traditional and standard approach in musculoskeletal healthcare is to perform an assessment, look at the site of pain (failure point) and target that area, usually with stretching or strengthening exercises and pain killers. What our Clinical Director and Lead Clinician Andrew Smy found out many years ago was that in most cases, the site of pain (failure point) is just the area of symptoms and not actually the true cause (stressor point).
The traditional healthcare approach has led many to suffer with short term pain relief and tolerate their symptoms returning shortly after, wasting their time and money.
At Peak Chiropractic and Kinesiology we have had enough of wasting your time, money and effort on this approach.
Our dedication to finding your body's true stressor points means you can enjoy long lasting relief from pain allowing you to get back to doing the things you love in life. With our unique 7 step system you will save money, enjoy your time without pain and spend your energy on the things you enjoy doing with your friends and family.
We have helped thousands of people from Hanley, Stoke, Newcastle, Leek, Alsager, Congleton, Biddulph and surrounding areas using this approach.
Here’s how we help people in North Staffordshire using our unique 7 step system that has helped so many people who have been failed by the traditional healthcare approach.
The conventional approach, usually involving several trips to and painkillers from the GP, is to see a therapist and get a diagnosis like ‘ you have one leg shorter than the other’ or ‘your pelvis is twisted’. This is followed by a sheet of exercises, and a few sessions focusing on the area of you that hurts……
The FIRST thing that happens at Peak Chiropractic and Kinesiology is that you get a clear breakdown of the areas of stress in your body and HOW they are producing your symptoms.
This then leads to a realistic expectation of the time frame and cost for you to get symptomatic relief that does not come back again. These results are delivered in a bespoke hands on treatment plan accompanied by leading pain education and rehabilitation strategies which go far beyond a generic sheet of exercises and massages to the areas you feel tight in.
All of our clients are supported throughout their journey by our expert team of Chiropractors, Sports Therapists and Myofascial Therapists.
This is the EXACT approach you can expect from everyone at Peak Chiropractic and Kinesiology. Our whole team has trained extensively with our Lead clinician and Clinical Director Andrew Smy and are highly skilled in the use of our unique 7 step system, hands on treatment techniques and cutting edge pain science and rehabilitation.
On your first session you should expect to receive an honest opinion of what is causing your problem along with an upfront and realistic expectation of the timeframe and cost of getting you back to your best in the least number of sessions possible.
No more session by session guesswork hoping things will be different next week. Our tailored plans ensure we take out the guesswork and have you stepping forward at every visit.
Better still, you will have access to a team of therapists that are trained in our unique methods along with massage, yoga, pain education and nutritional advice so you not only move away from pain but move towards staying pain free for your future.
After your first session you are not left isolated at home wondering how you can help yourself. Our team of clinicians is accessible at any time between your visits via call, email or social media to make sure you are supported through each step of our unique 7 step system.
Each visit builds on the last. Our tailored hands on treatment alters at every visit to match the changes that have occurred in your body posture, movements and capacity since your last visit. As you move away from your pain our therapists then do the MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR STRUCTURED PLAN which is to ensure all of your stressor points have been solved. This part is often missed with traditional approaches which only focus on the painful areas.
You see, just because the pain is gone does not simply mean that you are ready to head straight back to long walks, the gym and chasing after the kids. We need to be 100% sure that you are ready and not be guessing about whether you can do them or not. In our experience this is the NUMBER 1 REASON PAIN RETURNS AGAIN QUICKLY meaning you waste time, effort and hard earned money. This is avoided using our specific ‘ stress and test’ procedure which SHOWS you that you are ready to enjoy the things you love in life again, pain free, without guessing and hoping.
We make sure this number 1 mistake that people make that causes pain to return again is avoided by ensuring you are strong enough to thrive in your everyday life.
When your pain is gone and you are feeling calm, positive and moving freely we will provide you with the possibilities and space to optimise your future health by improving your nutritional and emotional wellbeing so you can continue to be the person your family and friends have come to expect, throughout your lifetime.
