STYC01 Clinical Reflection 02/04/2019

This session was conducted in the Marjon Sports Therapy Clinic for 1 hour, for my case study assessment.

Reflective Summary

I cleaned and tidied the work station, put down coach roll, and washed my hands. Upon arrival, I observed the gait of the client. To begin, we went through the consultation form, in which the client explained they had upper shoulder and neck pain due to stress. They thought this might be the reason for their headaches and migraines. For treatment, I performed a soft tissue massage on the clients upper shoulder and neck area, using techniques such as efflurage, petrissage, and neuromuscular techniques. Following this, I did soft tissue release on their upper fibres of trapezius. After completion of the treatment, their range of movement had improved.

Areas for Improvement

The client complained of one neuromuscular technique being too painful.

What can I do next?

Ensure to check the VAS score more frequently.
