This form is to acknowledge that Dr. Nicholas Araza, DC, and his team at Posture Coach are providing counsel for the intent and purpose of improving posture, range of motion and muscle imbalances and are not treating any specific conditions.
By improving these physical limitations many people experience an overall feeling of improved energy and wellbeing as well as a reduction in pain and symptoms. However, the exercise recommendations and posture education are not to be confused with a specific diagnosis from an in-person physical examination nor a treatment for a specific condition.
Due to the nature of body work, temporary discomfort is often expected and anticipated. However this discomfort should not be an exacerbation of any current symptoms but more of a therapeutic muscle sensitivity during the prescribed activity and/or generalized soreness afterward. These feelings can be intense at first, and typically reduce over time as range of motion and muscle imbalance improve.
It is also important to distinguish between invasive (damaging) pain and therapeutic (productive) discomfort. It is important to communicate if any invasive and/or electrical/shooting pain is felt from any exercise provided. If any invasive pain is felt it is expected that you will stop performing that exercise and immediately communicate that information to your Posture Coach.
Any worsening of any condition should be communicated with the subject line “worsening condition” via email as soon as possible.
The biggest factors in creating the positive results we get with our client’s posture, range of motion and muscle imbalances are consistency and accuracy, so please make sure you understand the recommendations and follow/perform them regularly!
Posture for Health,
Dr. Nick Araza, DC, CCWP, CCBPP
