MOVEMENT IS LIFE
Everything we do requires movement. Movement allows us to walk, run, cook, procreate, and communicate. Movement is even required at the cellular level. Without movement, we would cease to exist. Moving helps keep us healthy. A variety of diseases are actually related to the lack of moving.
Diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heart disease, and dyslipidemia (just to name a few) are all diseases caused in part by not moving enough. This is not news. We know that exercise (which is really just a human invention to make up for our lack of movement) is good for our health. Unfortunately, sedentariness (the lack of movement) has grown exponentially over the past few years. And so has the prevalence of these diseases.
While moving more is definitely a great start to combat these diseases, it is not the only answer. We must move better AND move more often.
MOST PAIN IS CAUSED BY POOR MOVEMENT
- Maybe you have heard that, “Pain is a part of growing old.”
- Maybe you have an old injury or joint problem.
- Maybe you have low back pain.
- Maybe you have been told you will need a knee replacement. Or that your spine will need to be fused.
- Maybe you have been told that you have bad arthritis. Or that your joints will soon be “bone on bone.”
All of these problems are caused in part by poor movement.
This is why the answer is not to simply move more. The answer is to move better AND move more!
MOVING BETTER AND MOVING MORE OFTEN ARE KEY TO A PAIN-FREE LIFE
To help you move better, we will start by taking you through a comprehensive movement assessment.
This assessment will uncover your movement limitations and weak links. It will allow us to get to the root cause of your problem.
This assessment is key to making sure your joints are moving optimally. Ensuring optimal joint health and movement is essential to living a healthy and pain-free life.
The information gained through this assessment will be combined with your goals and background to provide an individualized treatment plan for you.
UNLIKE OTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS, WE DO NOT ONLY TREAT PAIN
Unfortunately, most healthcare providers only treat pain. Worse yet, most of these providers only treat and rehab you back to your pre-injured or pre-painful state. What does this mean for returning to your previous activity? Often, your pain comes back, you get injured again, or you are unable to fully participate at the same level.
We are not here to scare you, this is just the harsh reality of how the healthcare system works. We are different.
You may not be currently injured or in pain. This is great! We would like to help you remain injury and pain-free. By assessing your movement and improving your limitations and weak links, we can help you stay on track to living a pain-free life.
Regardless of your current situation, we can help you move better so you can live at your greatest potential.
