INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENT & EDUCATION FOCUSING ON HUMAN MOVEMENT SCIENCE, PAIN SCIENCE & BEHAVIOR CHANGE

 

Our goal is to synthesize movement science through a blend of current manual therapy & pain science, apply it to the individual by addressing the parts & it’s relationship to the whole, & educate on what to do about it.

 

  • MOVEMENT THERAPY

    Movement Therapy is indicated for anyone seeking to improve their quality of movement. Most times we are unaware of movement inefficiency until movement becomes symptomatic. We specialize in Integrated Movement Assessments that address your symptoms while educating you on WHAT caused them.

    Movement is an act of changing physical location or position. Think of this as a sequence of segments (your body parts) within a specific task – a task YOU select or demand. That task can be anything from stair climbing, getting out of bed, to playing recreational or professional sport. If the sequencing of movement is efficient then you usually feel great. If the sequencing is off, you may not feel symptoms initially, but eventually the body will begin to protect itself and react with pain, discomfort, aches and stiffness that lead to compensations and decreased ability to perform.

  • SOFT TISSUE THERAPY

    With Soft Tissue Therapy, we utilize advanced “HANDS ON” techniques that establish correct posture and body mechanics that is combined with movement therapy via specific therapeutic movements. We use treatments that work WITH, not against, the natural functions of the body to promote healing and relieve pain while educating our patients to understand why their injury occurred and how to prevent it recurring.

    Each session is spent exclusively with a Physical Therapist that utilizes a variety of hands-on soft tissue techniques to release areas of congestion, tightness, and scaring of involved structures. Our focus is to return the soft tissues to their healthy texture, tension and length in order for them to function optimally and pain-free. The results of Biomechanical Detective’s soft tissue manipulations are equally impressive for the sedentary worker as well as the world-class athlete.

  • ADVANCED CERTIFICATIONS

    We try and find the cause of pain, aka the criminal, while addressing the symptoms, aka THE victim. We find the WHY & address the WHAT.

    We work with workers, runners, bikers, swimmers, gardeners, & everything elsers.

    Everything is one on one with YOU.  We have advanced certifications including Enhance Running Tech’s and in the NG360 Golf System

    Nike Golf and the NG360 performance analysis system is a scientific process of analysis and training aimed at enhancing the athleticism and performance of golfers at any skill level. The performance analysis and training techniques deliver consistent improvement of golf specific athleticism and performance starting with a 3D swing analysis, followed by an analysis of your global motion in order to create a spcific 3D functional performance training program that is individualized for your game.

    Enhance Running Techs

    Most runners ‘leak’ energy via a combination of work postures, unhelpful footwear, misconceptions about running and previous injuries that forces an increase in the amount of energy necessary for each step. Through poor technique, many people put their bodies under a lot more load than it should be when they run, leading to sore backs, shins, knees and even shoulders and necks. Poor technique means that you work harder, go slower and feel worse when you run than you should. ENHANCE Running technicians are specially trained to take you through our simple 7 step process to running better.

    An ENHANCE Running technician can help you to identify and fix those energy leaks, making running easier and more fun. Find out how to relax when you run and learn to run with ease and enjoy getting fit even more.

We focus on where you want to take your health, assessing YOUR current threshold, and the plan to achieving your goals, wants and needs.  Everything is customized, and unless doctor specified, we utilize no protocols.
