About The Sterling Method
Chronic pain (especially chronic back and neck pain) is practically an epidemic in our society; why are so many people suffering? We believe people experience chronic pain because they are chronically doing things that are harmful to them, and often times are not even aware of it.
Unbalanced postural habits, prolonged sitting, physical trauma such as an accident or a fall, and a fitness industry focused on aesthetics as opposed to function, have resulted in people thinking and feeling that pain is just a normal part of life and aging.
SST offers clients the opportunity to take back the control over their bodies, and positively affect their quality of life; both short term and long term.
The reason SST has been effective for so many people, is because our clients literally change their lives, the way they stand, sit, walk, run, get in and out of a chair, hit a golf ball or lift weights. They realize, with our guidance, what they had been doing that resulted in pain, and have chosen to take an active role in changing their reality.
Sterling Structural Therapy addresses the whole body, we take a look at your structure from head to toes, in order to make sure we are not simply addressing a symptom, but looking to address the root cause. You are not a “Rotator Cuff” a “Herniated Disc” a “Sciatica” or “Plantar Fasciitis.” Nothing in the human body exists nor functions by itself; rather it interacts reacts and balances in a beautifully intricate way with the rest of you. Clients receive a comprehensive assessment in both static and dynamic positions. Simple movement interventions are carefully applied along with postural, gait and functional reeducation.
Clients are given simple self-care homework exercises between sessions. Each session we reevaluate if our last interventions have proven successful, indicated by the client experiencing a steady reduction or disappearance of pain.
The first two to three sessions include postural and movement reeducation along with developing the client’s self-care protocol (homework). Once the client has his or her self-care protocol and is regularly implementing the protocol in a daily routine, the next sessions focus on slow and precise fascial corrections, applied by the therapist. These fascial corrections help speed up the healing process and make the client’s self-care protocol even more effective.
If you would like to take an active role in your wellbeing and want to take back control of your body… Sterling Structural Therapy is THE method for you.
