I like going beyond the typical chiropractic practice of manipulation and attention to the nervous system. I think it is important to discover the issues that are obstructing the quality of patients’ lives. My treatment goals are to prevent and resolve muscle conflict, strengthen the core, organize fascia, activate weak muscles, improve dynamic mobility, overcome inefficient sensorimotor patterns, and teach patients a variety of movements and exercises they can do at home on their own. Without educating patients and getting them to practice at home, the work in clinic will not have the long term effects and benefits we all want.

In practice, I’m big on posture and body movement awareness—communicating what I see during my evaluation and observation from a place of compassion, calm, clarity and confidence. Treatment needs to be totally personalized. As treatment interventions unfold, I continue with a layered approach: skilled hands, spinal/extremity manipulation, flexibility training, mobility drills, strength routines, postural modifications, activity modifications, and so on. Sessions are combined treatments because it has been well-documented that exercises AND treatment yield the best outcomes. Exercise offers ways to integrate disowned parts of the body and get patients more involved in their care.

FMS

What is it?

The FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries.  These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

The FMS generates  the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

Why?

A tremendous amount of athletes and individuals are performing high-level activities even though they are inefficient in their fundamental movements; without knowing it, these individuals are putting  fitness on dysfunction. These individuals create poor movement patterns, train around a pre-existing problem or simply do not train their weakness during their strength and conditioning programs. The best equipment and programs cannot produce if the fundamental weakness is not exposed. This weakness is the weak link.  If the weak link is not identified, the body will compensate, causing inefficient movements. It is this type of inefficiency that can cause a decrease in performance and an increase in injuries. The Functional Movement Screen attempts to pinpoint these weaknesses, and allevieate them. When this is accomplished, the individual or athlete will have greater movement efficiency, which will lead to improved performance and hopefully a decrease in injury potential.
