What is ConnectTherapy™?
If ongoing pain is affecting your wellbeing, ConnectTherapy™ may make a world of difference.
This unique treatment encompasses a whole-body assessment to decipher what is driving the pain. For example, if you have hip pain and have already seen a health professional and it hasn’t got better it is possible that the hip is the victim of the pain and not the driver of the problem. A ConnectTherapy assessment will look at your hip but also where else in the body the dysfunction may stem from – in some cases treating your thorax, foot or pelvis will be key to improving the movement of your hip.
What is the Thoracic Ring Approach™?
The Thoracic Ring Approach™ is the way that your ribs and thoracic spine is assessed during ConnectTherapy. Challenging the paradigm that the thoracic cage is inherently stiff and stable and instead needs neuromuscular retraining, this revolutionary approach assesses the ribs as a whole ring rather than just the vertebrae separately.
