How Can OUR Coaching Benefit the Practitioner

FAR can reduce the stress on your body by combining the best concepts of other myo-facial treatment techniques. The patient is fully involved in the treatment process so that you can get better results by working cooperatively, and it’s easy to monitor changes in the patient to measure the effectiveness of the approach.

Benefits of the FAR Approach

The FAR process gives you the chance to communicate, explain, educate and explore your findings with your patient, in a very  clear and easy to understand way.

Gaining Patient consent for your care is vital but so is their “buy in” They go hand in hand!

Sharing honest progress feedback and level of adherence to your advice and care plan is paramount to make the care individual to the patients needs too!

 The FAR process often elicits patient “recollections” about the detailed history of their journey in pain and stiffness.

This detail can further inform your “case history” and help guide your care plan with even more accuracy.

Finally, the FAR approach keeps the practitioner on a flexible pathway, or WORKING DIAGNOSIS, that iteratively adapts to patient feedback and outcomes, without “chasing symptoms”.

Handling each symptom individually in some cases can take the “care plan” off track and not deal thoroughly with the underlying imbalances and  habitual dysfunction that drive the presenting patient, into a chronic status quo, with little lasting change. A good case history underpins the physical examination.
