What to expect for your first appointment
& how treatment works
At your first appointment, our performance coach will review your health history as well as discuss and determine your unique goals for care. From here, you will be taken through a functional movement assessment, which allows your coach to develop a training program that is tailored to your health and performance goals.
Prior to your first appointment, intake forms will be sent to you via email, which you may complete at home and send back. You may also arrive 15 minutes early to your appointment to complete the forms at the clinic. Please ensure to bring/wear workout clothing and the appropriate footwear.
At Foundations, we will create a personalized program that best meets your needs and goals. We recognize that no two patients are the same and as such, we have created different types of training sessions. Sessions can be 15, 30 and 45 minutes in duration.
Also offered are:
- Lifting Technique sessions
- Programs for sports teams
- Group sessions/classes
Who can benefit from performance coaching?
Simply put, everyone. Athletes can fine tune their skills and work on areas of imbalance or underdevelopment that can hold them back.
Those who are just starting their movement journey can benefit from learning proper techniques and movement patterns. Your performance coach will guide you on how to train for a particular goal and help you build a strong foundation.
Those seeking rehabilitation care to either return to sports or to become more mobile in life will also benefit from this service, as the performance coach typically works alongside your chiropractor or massage therapist to develop and implement your care plan.
The Foundations Difference

At Foundations, our Performance Coach will work closely with both you and your practitioner(s) to guide you through a multidimensional program designed to help you meet your unique health and performance goals.
