What is “Function based manual medicine”?
Function based testing and treatment has become the ‘Best practice’ for resolving pain in today’s world. It begins with the identification of the source of the symptoms in a very specific manner and after treatment leaves the patient not only with less discomfort, but better movement and performance.
We feel that your problem is unique, just as your body is unique. So of course your treatment should be unique. We have established a system to identify what is different about you and your condition that will indicate a specific pain generator and what needs to be done to resolve the issue.
On some visits it includes manual therapies like Active Release Technique, traditional chiropractic adjustments, sometimes its lifestyle advice. When exercises are indicated, we pride ourselves in only giving you the one or two specific exercises needed to target the damaged tissues.
We tie this all in to the ultimate goal of making you ‘Move Better’. We subscribe to the philosphy that your happiness is directly tied to being able to move pain free through your day. Whether its a 225 pound clean and jerk in the gym or cradling your 9 pound child or grandchild, our system can handle it.
Challenge us to resolve your limitations and painful movement and get back to enjoying your passions in life.
