25/04/19 Marjon clinic No. of hours 44
This was a two hour session and two clients were seen during this. The first client was a 19 year old female who runs 6 times a week and has just started to do more running. The second client was a 18 year old female who goes to the gym 2 times a week.
The first client came in for a calf massage this was because they said they did a longer run than they usually would so they have achy legs from this. ROM was tested and they had FROM, from looking at them standing it was clear that the arch in their foot wasn’t as prominent as it would typically be. A calf massage was given to the client this was done by using techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, and deep frictions, this was done to help ease pain. After the massage aftercare was given to the client this included RICE to let the client rest and to not overuse muscles as it will slow down recovery.
The second client was a women who goes to the gym 2 times a week. The client explained that they had leg day at the gym two days before and that their glutes were sore. Postural assessments were done and it had shown that the client had slight kyphosis, the clients hips were also at different levels. The left hip was higher then the right. ROM was tested and they had FROM without any pain. A massage was given to the client and this included neuromuscular techniques, when doing this there was a knot in one glute that wasn’t in the other which was odd because if there is a knot on one side it is usually on the other side too. After the massage aftercare was given to the client.
Make sure to do stretches at the end of sessions to help with the clients mobility and to help with the muscle tightness. This doesn’t mean it needs to be for every client but it can help in most cases.
