During the early part of an injury, such as when an ankle is sprained, inflammation, pain, and other metabolic events occur that give trouble to the patient.
Our goal here is to calm down the injury by decreasing inflammation and expediting recovery with evidence-based techniques. Healing correctly is vital to ensure the injury does not become chronic or re-occurring.
Here we address the cause of your injury as most injuries are by-products of the body being dysfunctional elsewhere. It would be negligent not to address this as we know you would only re-injure yourself again at some other point. We use advanced examination techniques from the SFMA and Functional Range Assessment, which are currently used by multiple professional sports teams in the NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLB. These systems bring out the impairments, and during this phase, we make it a point to fix these regions.
This is where the fun begins! Now that you are finally out of pain and all other dysfunctions are resolved, we can LOAD your body up. We employ state of the art equipment from kettlebells, weights, and our functional trainer system. We embark on a strength training program to increase your tissues' resilience and power. Our goal is to improve your fascia and joint mobility, along with creating tissue that is STRONG through a FULL RANGE of motion.
Our therapy approach is unique in that we treat your injury with the belief the entire body is connected. Most therapies only address the region a patient came in with, which leaves the underlying issue still present. We use an FRA (Functional Range Assessment) to get a baseline of every joint in the body. We understand the body is complex and how one issue can lead to problems elsewhere in the body. Our use of manual therapy and exercise then allows our patients to recover as fast as possible.
A session with us may involve multiple modes of treatment to get you better faster. Our treatments' core involves manual therapy to open up restrictions followed up with exercise to stay strong and maintain improvements from our hands-on techniques. Education is critical, and we ensure our patients learn why they have pain and why we do our treatments to get them better.
We suggest that regardless of the region you are getting assessed or treated, you come in with shorts and a t-shirt/tank top so our therapists can assess your entire body.
After an assessment, your therapist will be able to provide further insight into your specific plan of care and the required length of treatment. As a general guideline, you can expect to feel significantly better in the following timelines:
-Minor/non-chronic injuries (4-6 sessions)
-Moderate severity/chronic - greater than 6 weeks of pain (10-12 sessions)
-Severe or long term issues (20 sessions)
