What is Global Postural Reeducation (RPG)?
RPG is a treatment approach specific to physiotherapists that aims to evaluate and manually treat the human body as one system. The goal is to track back from the symptoms to the cause by following the muscular chains; correcting it little by little using specific treatment postures, and eliminating problematic compensations.
How do treatments work?
Depending on the reason for the visits, treatments are either 30 minutes, 40 minutes, or 60 minutes long. The first visit is 60 minutes and seeks to evaluate the symptoms as well as establish different contributing factors. Following that visit we can establish a proper treatment plan based on your needs.
