Looking for physio after hip surgery?

It’s a good idea to help your body recover from your hip surgery but don’t just consider physiotherapy. There are many choices when it comes to physical therapy.  Osteopathy?  Chiropractic?  Physiotherapy?  Sport massage?  For an acute injury these therapies are the most commonly sought.

Why not try Somatics?

For long term muscle tightness, persistent niggles, mobility loss, postural changes and chronic pain affecting multiple areas, and to aid recovery from hip surgery, Somatics offers something different.

How is Somatics different from other therapies?

  • It treats the body holistically, addressing muscles, fascia and tissues along the entire chain.

  • It is not therapy, you will learn to deeply perceive the improved body comfort that occur with the movements, and you will learn to recreate this level of comfort for yourself.  This allows long-term and sustainable relief that is self-directed.

  • The target is the nervous system and brain, not muscles.

  • The neuromuscular changes brought about by Somatic movement take place at the level of the brain cortex.  Hands on work (where the practitioner moves your body) does not involve neo-cortex at all. The cortex is key in that muscular changes are fostered by the nervous system, and are thus incorporated into your neurophysiology, having a lasting effect.

  • There is no stretching.  Muscles are ‘pandiculated’: “Pandiculation begins with a conscious voluntary contraction, recruiting the affected muscle or muscle groups to shorten even beyond their habituated tonus. Then, by carefully and deliberately lengthening the muscles from that full contraction, the brain is able to reset the muscle length and tonus. This method gives strong feedback to the brain, allowing it to “refresh” its sensation of those muscles, and to slowly reset length and tonus. The changes in the muscle occur at the level of the nervous system, thereby conferring greater sensation, motor control and coordination. Pandiculation facilitates our muscles relaxing from a contracted state.”

Start re-educating your brain to eliminate pain

A private, one-to-one Somatics assessment is the quickest way to start the re-education of your brain and eliminate pain. Our aim is to restore muscle function, improve freedom of movement, and eliminate your particular pattern of learned muscular pain.
The first one and a half hour Somatics assessment will include:
  • A detailed assessment of your posture
  • Assessment of your gait
  • An assessment of your health history
  • A movement lesson focusing on your particular muscular pain patterns
  • Self-care advice and creation of personal routine for sitting, standing, and daily functional movement

Progressive Sessions

After the initial sessions, subsequent Progressive Sessions of one hour will build on the previous session’s improvement. The goal of these sessions is to teach you to restore easy, comfortable freedom of movement, and to teach you the tools to take care of yourself.

Most conditions can be resolved within 4-6 sessions, whereas more severe conditions (scoliosis and certain cases of trauma) may require more sessions.

In order to learn to improve yourself using the learning tools we provide, you need to be committed to participating in the self-care routine to ensure optimum results and long-term improvement.
