ProMotion is an outcomes based program using up to date evidence, cutting edge technology and customised plans that offer progress towards your unique goals. No cookie cutter protocols here!
A piece of evidence, that is often poorly understood by the public is:
If muscular or skeletal pain or injury has not settled significantly with manual treatment within 4 weeks – it is probably not going to.
Based on this, ProMotion offers 2 treatment streams:
Pain Reduction. If your pain / injury problem is likely to resolve within 4 weeks we begin a course of Osteopathic treatment. Deep tissue work, joint manipulation, dry needling, stretching, taping – all the things we know work the best for relief of short term pain.
Superscreening and Plan for Progress.
If your problem will not resolve with treatment within 4 weeks, we are compelled to dig deeper to find a cause. To stop guessing!
We use purpose built technology to measure the strength and power deficits that prevent you reaching your goals. We then set about building a plan to fix these deficits. We take data every 4 weeks to make sure we are always on track towards your goals – not wasting your precious time or money wandering around “guessing” what might be going on.
NB depending on the nature of your pain / injury, your plan may include some Osteo treatment as required. Delivered by Grant Burrows. Your Plan for Progress is not “anti osteo treatment”, it IS anti doing things that we know won’t have a successful outcome for you.
** What ProMotion doesn’t do is “ad hoc osteo” where you book treatment randomly as you need it. Nor do we do regular interval treatment, eg ‘every 3 weeks’ to keep things aligned and loose. There is nothing wrong with these popular forms of treatment – and almost all practitioners will do this for you - it is simply not what ProMotion does!
ProMotion is designed and run by Osteopath Grant Burrows
Many women after pregnancy and childbirth (or a few goes at it) are left with pelvic or back pain. More
subtly, they experience a lack of the flexibility, strength and control of movement they once had.
This can resolve naturally over time, but so often ends up in a downward spiral of physical deconditioning,
that these Mums never really bounce back from.
But there is good news...
We know that most of these women have the same problems:
Weak core and pelvic floor
Weak glutes and hips (main support for the low back)
Stiff, locked and tired middle back from feeding, holding and carrying.
Therefore, we can design a program targeted at these common deficiencies.
And we have. It is called Mums Bounce Back!
It is a 12 week program in a small group setting alongside mums bouncing
back like you!
Run by an experienced Osteopath Grant Burrows to keep you safe (i.e. we do not do burpees).
Grant graduated in Melbourne as an Osteopath in 2000.
Over the next 15 years he worked in private practice – both in Australia and in London, lectured Osteopathic students at the university and did extensive further training in the US during 2011 and 2013 in the area of Movement and Pain.
Grant and his wife Jo also opened Procare Sports & Spinal (now Procare Geelong ) in 2006, which they still take great pride in being part of.
Programs are built with authenticity and with a genuine care and interest in people.
The Programs demand you to be accountable in engaging, and demands Grant be accountable to guiding you to improvement and a better life.
When Grant is not devising Movement or Pain programs, he is busy with his family including 3 young kids.
In any spare time, Grant likes to be active and is currently hanging on to any last glimpses of athleticism in AFL 9s, gym, running and yoga.
Grant also likes to make announcements. And will be forever remembered (by a some) as the unluckiest Field Host ever at GMHBA stadium. He was doing some crisp jokes out on the ground when all the grandstands were being rebuilt, and his jokes, along with later his media career wafted down Moorabool St through the gaps in the grandstands.
