Here are a few of our commonly used techniques and assessments
Just as a physician may prescribe a medication to address an infection, illness, or condition, I prescribe exercises to address your pain and improve your movement. Movement is medicine when it comes to your body and the nervous system. Our goal is to give you the right movements to facilitate strength, mobility, and pain relief.
As a movement specialist, I can identify areas of restriction, weakness, or poor motor control that may be holding you back or causing you pain with the things you do. This includes running, lifting, reaching, throwing, your golf swing, volleyball or tennis serve or any other movement that could be improved or stronger.
Whether you are recovering from an injury, returning to running after pregnancy, are experiencing pain while you run, or just want to improve your form, if running is your sport it is important to have it evaluated to:
After your running analysis, your stride will be explained to you and you will be given drills and exercises that will directly address areas that can improve so you can run safely and efficiently.
Manual therapy techniques are used for pain relief, desensitizing muscles and joints, increasing blood flow, minimizing swelling, improving tissue compliance and joint mobility, and preparing the nervous system for movement. Techniques include but are not limited to myofascial trigger point release, skin rolling, joint mobilization, scar tissue mobilization, cupping therapy, and manual stretching.
Myofascial decompression, or cupping therapy, is used to improve blood flow, fascial/muscular/neural mobility, mobilize scar tissue and fascial adhesions, reduce swelling, increase range of motion, and provide pain relief.
Taping methods are effective in reducing swelling, improving blood flow to facilitate healing, facilitate improved mobility, reduce pain, and improve muscle activity.
The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) specializes in optimizing the golf swing and in improving golf technique. They have created an excellent, evidence-based assessment tool specifically for golfers. The aim of the tool is to identify areas that golfers are lacking in strength, muscle length, or mobility that could be impairing their golf swing and putting them at greater risk of injury anywhere throughout the golf swing. This tool is also applicable to other rotational sports including tennis, volleyball, softball, and baseball.
