5 Tips to Reduce Pain and Improve Movement without leaving your house

Yes, I want relief

Custom Online Treatment

 Being stuck at home does not mean you need to be stuck in pain, wondering if there is way to make moving easier, your body stronger, and your exercise more beneficial? If you are an individual struggling with a new program, a weekend warrior, or a fitness enthusiast in pain who is wanting to perform and feel better, schedule a strategy session to discuss and determine your next course of action.

My scientific treatment approach is innovative and focuses on inhibition and facilitation of the muscular chains that commonly contribute to postural patterns of dysfunction and pain. These symtpoms can come from a variety of circumstances including motor vehicle acciddents, work injuries, overuse injuries, running injuries or normal life circumstances. 

This retraining starts with the diaphragm (and you have many). Did you know that you take 21,000 breaths a day on average?  If so, then you will understand why the diaphragm and breath manage the safe movement of your body's mass.  This musculoskeletal system control is done through pressure management, positioning of joints and soft tissue structures, and regulation of the central and automomic nervous system.  These systems drive posture and movement. If you do no control your posture and movement, it will control you. 

I have worked hard to learn about the power of breath and the vital, often overlooked role it plays in the body’s physical and mental recovery. Training breath to drive movement and your body's mass for  orthopedic positioning provides pain-free movement, mechanics, and performance.  While this may sound complicated, this is a relatively simple and extremely effective therapy that anyone can do.  I am excited to offer this approach in my practice. I have learned, over the course of my years as a physical therapist, mother and wife that sometimes less is often more - making some small changes can have BIG effects.

In Personal Treatment

 Currently seeing patients in clinic and in compliance with all CDC guidelines to ensure the safety and health of my clients, myself, and other practitioners.

My treatment sessions are one on one and run approximately 45-60 minutes with a promise of individualized care.  My goal is to educate you in a customized program to help you manage your pain free movement long term.  Together we will focus on a multi faceted approach to recovery. At discharge, you will leave feeling empowered in your knowledge of how to continue your program independently whether you want to use it at home or transfer these activities back onto the gym floor. Through this individualized program you will learn how to help gain mobility, strength, power and control your pain and movement for overall physical and mental health.

My physical therapy clinic is a shared space within Alliance Healing Arts allowing direct access to other full body wellness practitioners including naturopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy and esthetician.  All services are rendered independently in a warm, friendly, and safe environment.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
