“I live with a chronic condition myself and therefore understand how a chronic disease or disability impacts on your daily activity, life roles and quality of life. I have walked a difficult but enriching journey over the last 10 years and can attest that I can empower you to become the best you can be. I enjoy working with special populations including auto-immune diseases, neurological degenerative diseases, chronic pain and special populations such as geriatrics and people with disabilities” says Riana.
Riana and her team use exercise as main treatment modality to assess functionality in your environment whether that includes an electrician needing to climb a ladder, a runner preparing for comrades or a patient with a movement disorder struggling to perform activity of daily living we so take for granted. In order to do this, they use the first appointment to perform an in depth clinical and scientific assessment to determine what you can and cannot do including posture, flexibility and range of motion, strength and dynamic postural stability. Your assessment will be done specific to your environment and a report will be put together with feedback. They stay in contact with your managing physician and other health professionals involved while maintaining patient confidentiality. From there they determine the length and number of sessions required.
