CiONE Treatment Programmes
Initial Postural Biomechanical assessment
All our patients undergo an initial assessment which takes in the region of 60-75 minutes. This comprises a full medical history review and biomechanical assessment.
We discuss and assess the journey of the skeletal structure, how it has grown and developed during the Ossification process and how activities, traumas and accidents during the patient’s life time have affected the skeleton.
Dynamic Gait can be analysed on a treadmill and the negative weight load during stance phase observed on the clinic’s Paedobarograph.
The posture is then assessed and explained, giving the patient clarity on why any issues and ailments are happening and what is the best possible course of action to be taken. This treatment recommendation might include one of the four levels of Treatment Programme outlined below and/or include other treatments or an integrated treatment and exercise programme.
At your initial assessment there is no need to wear special sports garments. Normally the only physical activity at the assessment is walking on a treadmill. However, it would be useful to bring with you any medical information, such as X-Rays or scans if you have them.
We will also often take some measurements of your body, such as leg length and foot dimensions so it would be useful to wear clothing that would allow us to do this.
CiONE Postural Rejuvenation aftercare Programmes
Our patients generally undergo year-long Aftercare Programmes. This is not always the case, however, we will always adapt our treatment protocol in line with the patient’s best interests. Below are the four programmes that accommodate most of our patients.
