KEEPING YOU OFF THE INJURED LIST.
The number one predictor of future injury is previous injury.
Many Rehabilitation training programs focus on improving the strength of a particular muscle or a specific movement. But does that mean that area of your body knows how to work in unison with other body parts to form a functional and safe movement pattern needed for actual sport and life?
Most of the time, the answer is no.
The number one predictor of future injury is previous injury. The sports medicine world has known this for years, but most practitioners are still doing nothing about it. However, many of us are focusing on rehabbing injuries all the way to a functional level. The goal is to greatly decrease your risk of future injury and to improve your performance to the level it was before the injury, or even better.
Through movement assessments such as the Functional Movement Screen, the Selective Functional Movement Assessment, and the Y-Balance Test, I am able to expose areas of dysfunction that are contributing to your current injury and could possibly lead to an additional injury down the road.
Using my functional corrective exercise program, we work together to improve mobility that is limiting your movement, and re-train your nervous system to control all of the moving parts. Not only does this help with your rehab process, but it can prevent future injury and drastically improves performance.

FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY
An important part of being able to move functionally is having the requisite range of motion through your soft tissue and joints. That’s where Fascial Stretch Therapy comes into play! By performing hands on, assisted stretching techniques, I am able to ensure you are getting the required ranges through your system before we begin having you explore these ranges on your own and adding weight to them. This is a very important first step!
If you’re in pain, it doesn’t matter how many exercises I give you to help you move more efficiently. You will always move away from that pain and perpetuate those bad moving habits. That’s where Acupuncture comes into the equation. Before I ask you to move through proper movement patterns, I will use advanced acupuncture techniques to address your pain. After all, that’s what you’re here for!
