Post Treatment Care
After receiving Fascial Counterstrain it is best to drink lots of water and rest for a while. Here are some tips to help minimize any post-treatment soreness following therapy.
Take a walk!
If able, take a 15-20 minute walk after treatment to help increase your blood flow which will help flush the metabolic toxins out of your system quicker.
Take a drink!
Make sure to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water following your session. For example, if you weight 200 lbs, that would require you to drink 100 ounces. This will help you eliminate the metabolic waste produced as a result of the treatment. Avoid caffeinated beverages such as coffee for at least 48 hours after treatment because we want to hydrate you not dehydrate you.
Take it Easy!
Try to avoid any strenuous or quick moving activities for 2-3 days after each session. This means staying away from the health club, no running, and heavy lifting at work and at home. By resting you will maximize the benefits of today’s session.
If soreness occurs:
Use heat or ice to help with any pain that may arise after your session. If the doctor prescribed any pain meds you may use them if necessary. Remember, you may have multiple layers to your pain and dysfunction, so do not be surprised if you experience pain elsewhere in your body. We will address it at your next session.
