To serve as an advocate for holistic care of my patients by providing high level, individual based, patient centered care to the active community. To continually seek out the most current and cutting edge evidence based therapy to bridge the gaps between research, rehabilitation and performance.
Functional & Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation
FAKTR (pronounced factor), stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation—to put it simply, the FAKTR rehabilitation system says what it does: Assesses and Treats Musculoskeletal Dysfunction within the Kinetic Chain through Movement. This safe and effective way to treat musculoskeletal injuries and chronic pain has been turning the rehab world on its ear for over a decade.
Functional Movement Screening
The FMS is comprised of seven movement tests that require a balance of mobility and stability. The patterns used provide observable performance of basic, mobility and stability movements by placing clients in positions where weaknesses, imbalances, asymmetries and limitations become noticeable by a trained health and fitness professional. Including Y-Balance, FMS Breathing, & Motor Screens.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment
The SFMA a the movement-based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem.
RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape.
First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
Fascial Stretch Therapy
Is pain-free and uses constant circulatory, gently oscillating movements of traction and stabilization to decompress joints and expand space in the soft tissues. Beyond gaining range of motion where needed, one experiences vastly improved kinesthesia (ability to move with ease) and proprioception (sense of one’s posture both when still and in movement).
Myofascial cupping using silicone and acrylic cups provide suction to decompress the underlying tissue. Utilizing the science of traction, tissue gliding, and decompression to provide therapeutic relief by increasing soft tissue mobility and increased blood flow to treated tissues.
