Simple, corrective exercise, practiced daily, will reset your movement patterns, stabilize your spine, and mobilize your joints to treat your pain and prevent it from coming back.
Specifically, your neck and low back are the part of your spine that have to be stable. Your knees are an important joint that need to be stabilized as well. We accomplish this using McKenzie® Method: MDT - Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy
Control and properly activate your core and reset your muscle activation patterns using intra-abdominal pressure and diaphragmatic breathing with DNS - Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization from the Prague School of Rehabilitation
Actively move your spine and joints using resisted movement drills. Your upper back, shoulders, and hips must be mobile. Simply stretching cannot make this a lasting change; you have to practice. We use progressive movement to assess and treat any imbalances.
The best part about this type of treatment is that it can be done in the comfort of your own home with a HOUSECALL or a video TELETHERAPY visit!
Sometimes your muscles and joints need extra help and attention to get moving.
We utilize various mobilization and massage techniques to complement your active therapy.
Gentle muscle work utilizing spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments as well as massage techniques will support your movement therapy. Manual techniques include instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization with tools such as "Graston", "Smart Tools", "Rock Blades", or jade instruments.
Adjustments and massage alone will only give you temporary relief; our mission is to teach you how to be able to mobilize and treat yourself, so our manual techniques are only performed in conjunction with active therapy.
You'll have long lasting results and a toolbox to soothe yourself in the future.
Our number one goal is to teach you how to stay active and live pain free! We don't want you to stay in "rehab purgatory", constantly seeing massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, or other doctors and consistently taking pain medication. That's not a healthy life. If you get hurt, we can treat you quickly, but if you always move incorrectly, or have a lifestyle that forces your body to be in pain, you'll never fully recover. Our treatment involves teaching you how to practice corrective exercise for life. It's easy, doesn't take much time, and you own your own toolbox of therapeutic drills that you can use forever.
