We believe life is meant to be experienced, not just lived.
Physical and emotional stressors can disrupt our internal balance, create mental fog and hinder our movement. We strive to promote optimal wellness and function so that you may continue to do the activities you love. We use an individualized patient centered scientific based approach. Our DNA (genetics) designed us but our environment (epigenetics) shapes us. If we understand where you are we can direct where you need to be. We work to empower patients with team based methods to address biomechanical, biochemical and lifestyle factors to improve patient outcomes.
Mobility comes first! This can be in the form of adjusting, manipulation or mobilization. The goal is to restore joints to their proper motion and function.
We take our time to learn your history and let this guide our examination. Using a systematic approach, e can navigate your current status to functional diagnosis and together determine the appropriate treatment.
Spinal Traction Decompression
Therapeutic method to stretch and relieve pressure on the nerves, vertebral discs and spinal structures that may cause acute and chronic pain. Treatment intensity, frequency and duration varies upon the diagnosis. Conditions treated: capsulitis, spondylosis, disc herniations, headaches, whiplash, muscular strains, degenerative disc disease, radiculopathy.
Functional Dry Needling
Trigger points and motor bands develop from prolonged, repetitive stress and aberrant posture. Dry needling uses myofilament needles that are safely guided into the dysfunctional muscle tissue to release engaged muscle fibers. This treatment is followed corrective exercises to reset proper movement.
Together we will work to restore your movement patterns using a neurodevelopmental approach to help heal while maintaining physical strength and function.
I.A.S.T.M/ Fascial Therapy
Precise treatment with specialized stainless steel instruments address fascial restrictions and soft tissue adhesions to restore pain free motion and proper function.
Functional Movement Screen
Move well, move often. We learned to move through patterns so we screen patterns for your movement literacy. Your ability to coordinate mobility and stability determine your ability to function- this is known as motor control.
ACL Integrity Program
Roughly 70% of ACL injuries are non- contact. Annually there are 200 thousand ACL injuries, 95 thousand ruptures and 100 thousand reconstructive ACL surgeries. Female athletes are at the greatest risk for developing ACL injury. Screening and prevention programs can reduce injury risk.
Fundamental Capacity Screen
Are you generally fit for your age, gender and activity? A myopic view into your movement control (climb/ crawl), postural control (posture integrity), explosive control ( jump) and impact control (running). Remove physical barriers to skill acquisition and increase your ability to perform.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment
SFMA is a movement based diagnostic system which systematically finds that causes of pain- not just the source- by logically breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns and assessment.
Functional Breathing Screen/Assesment
From the gracefulness of yoga to the strength of the martial artist - it all starts with breath. Proper breathing is essential for stable core activation and quality movement. Screening and assessing breathing for dysfunctional patterns that can relate to injury risk will set the stage for proper stress reduction & healing. FBS
Nerves are tissues arising from the spinal cord that communicate with all tissues, muscles and organ systems. Nerves need to move freely without impediment. Testing is designed to assess the mobility of nerves as they wind through the tissues and extra- spinal structures. When adhesion is present the mobility of the nerve is inhibited creating reflexive muscle tension and pain.
Y Balance Test
Timing, sequencing, coordination and synergy= motor control. Screening for left and right asymmetries can reveal if an injury risk exists so proper intervention can be made.
Muscle testing specific to you to determine if your body needs inhibition or activation to correct imbalances. Provide non-invasive support to your joints and muscles.
What Can I Expect As a New Patient?
Comprehensive history of present illness/injury
Functional breathing screen
This level of detail ensures we are being thorough for your current complaint in addition to addressing the sources of the problem.
We strive to mitigate pain and correct dysfunction in 3-6 visits, we are able to achieve this with 85% of patients treated. However, if your injury is more severe, you may need more time to care for your injury.
