Frequently Asked Questions
KALP family always welcomes you wholeheartedly. We will take complete care of your problem. As correct diagnosis is the key to perfect treatment, a qualified therapist will do thorough assessment of your condition. The therapist will ask you about your problem. You will be asked about your health and medical history. Then the therapist will carry out a detailed examination of your spine and test your nerves & muscles to see if they are functioning as they should.
Your health is our priority. You’re having taken an opinion from a qualified practitioner will always enhance our treatment protocol. We, here at KALP, have a team of qualified therapists who can also diagnose your condition and guide you in a genuine way.
Yes, even if you have approached us with prescription of a qualified practitioner, we will have a complete assessment session from functional & biomechanical point of view. Your muscle strength, posture, life style, occupation etc. can affect your treatment protocols, so every minute detail is considered before starting the treatment. Hence a complete assessment needs to be done.
At KALP, your treatment would be planned based on your biomechanical & functional assessment & it will be in synchrony with your consultant’s advice (If any). In brief, it would be a team effort to realise the goal of pain relief & resolving the underlying problems.
If possible, please bring your partner with you & the reports of other relevant findings. It is good for your “support network” at home also to understand your condition. All of the information that you gave the therapist at your first visit has been carefully assessed and you will be told what has been found. Your treatment plan will be discussed with you. If you agree, you will then have your first treatment. All treatments are specific to you and are tailored to your needs.
No. Whilst pain is understandably of great concern to a patient, pain is simply a signal telling the brain that something is wrong. We can tell you what is ‘that’ wrong, provided you do not shrug your responsibility by ignoring it. Sometimes it disappears, but most often, it returns. Pain may be insidious, increase gradually, intensify, or become persistent. You can acknowledge it, face up to it or do something about it. Just under your skin, there is an expansive landscape of ingeniously constructed components. If one aspect is not functioning the way it should, it may only take the slightest adjustment to put it right. Yes, with treatment at KALP, it is possible. When a patient is experiencing a problem, pain is usually the last thing to come. Interestingly, when treatment begins, it is often the first thing to disappear.
The question should be: why do I keep on hurting myself? Pain is your friend A signal that something’s wrong. Often we take pain killers but that just masks what is going on. We deal with the cause of the problem. Think of it another way. If there is a smoke in the room and the smoke alarm buzzes, would you switch on the exhaust fan & just relax or you will find the source of smoke?
Yes! May be, your mental stress could be playing a part in your pain.
Because the body is not like a machine – replace a broken part and everything works again. If the body is damaged, then it will need time to heal. Also, there can be further consequences to the injury. For example, if you ever had a leg in plaster you will know that when the plaster is removed that leg can be very thin and weak due to lack of use. The same thing happens in the spine. If a part of the spine is not working properly, then some of the muscles will be weak. Even after an adjustment, the spine will still not be working normally because it has to “relearn” how to function normally.Each time you have an adjustment the joints improve and muscles strengthen. The body gradually regains normal function. If there is inflammation and nerve interference, this has to recover and the inflammation has to reduce. It takes time to heal.Even when the pain goes your spine is still in a fragile state. It is easy to upset it again when there is no pain to remind you of your injury.
We want you to feel the full benefit of the treatments you receive. Each treatment builds on the one before. If you miss a treatment, this will slow down your recovery.
On an average this will come out to be one hour per session.
