FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TYPICAL APPOINTMENT?

  • Initial appointments with Dr. Hughes last about 60min, with the follow-up appointments lasting anywhere from 30-60min. Please print, fill-out and bring the Intake Paperwork to your first session. We also require proper attire during the session as well, which is outlined below.

  • If this is your first appointment, the first 10-15min will be used for a consultation of what you may have going on. 

  • If this is a follow-up appointment, we will check in to see how you are feeling today, and ask about any particular changes from the previous session.

  • We will then perform an assessment, typically including posture, gait, and functional range of motion tests. This will give us a chance to establish a baseline for that day.

  • Then we will proceed to treatment. Appointments with Dr. Hughes are typically more active than other forms of physical medicine (e.g., chiropractic, massage, etc), in which we usually blend a combination of movement and manual therapies altogether. Treatments become more effective as clients participate in ways such as performing specific movements or paying attention to their internal experience.

  • After treatment, we will perform a re-assessment so that we can observe if any changes were made.

  • We will then discuss any questions you might have, upcoming sessions, and I will outline certain aspects to consider until our next session.

  • Dr. Hughes will then follow-up with you via email to update your at-home practice (if Revolution In Motion was the major emphasis) or summarize any other recommendations provided in office. If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, you can email Dr. Hughes at eric@hughesmoves.com. Kindly allow up to 24 hours for Dr. Hughes to respond.

  • Payments are due at the end of every session. We accept all major credit cards, cash or checks.

WHAT IS THE PROPER ATTIRE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

Access to skin and the ability to move freely is extremely important. As such, we recommend that you wear shorts or a sports bra/tank top to your appointment. In general, the looser fitting the clothing the better.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

It is very common to experience pain relief or a change in posture within the first session. That being said,  lasting results can take up to 3-5 sessions depending on the modality implemented. This is also largely dependent on the patient's willingness and dedication to perform their at-home Revolution In Motion practice, which is the foundation for long-term improvement.  

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
