Function. Proper spinal alignment improves nervous system function which can lead to improved performance and more healthy & non-injured days. Optimal muscle length and tone positively impact speed, agility, and power.
Education. Professional manual therapists can recognize possible patterns resulting from imbalance. During training & recovery, you may be able to recognize that one side is regularly tighter than another, but a professional can help determine why and if the imbalance is causing any issues in performance.
Safety. Frequent self adjustments can lead to ligament laxity, inflammation, and instability. A professional can determine which specific segments need to be adjusted and can safely target only those joints. Professionals are also trained to gently work in areas called “Areas of Caution” which are areas not advised for self care.
Perfecting your game involves countless repetitions over many years, which often leads to strength imbalances in the body. Sometimes those imbalances can serve you, but sometimes they hinder performance. We ensure that our elite athletes are able to perform at their highest capacity, often helping to increase stamina, power output, accuracy, and control.
“They’re kids, they’ll recover!” Kids are super resilient, but this fact often means that their aches, pains, and developing imbalances go the most unnoticed. Our team of practitioners understands that there is a level of discomfort that comes with intensely practicing a sport. We help kids and parents focus on the aches & pains that may impact their performance or create long term issues.
Our office workers, dental hygienists, nurses, parents, factory & construction workers, and traveling workers are all balancing jobs that require repetitive movements with after-work & weekend workouts, sports, and physical hobbies. With maintenance care, our LMMT team helps recognize developing imbalance before it interferes with what they love.
Whether you’ve been away from training for a while, or you’re starting to exercise for the very first time, increasing physical activity with excess weight on the joints requires its own unique considerations. Our team is here to support your overall wellness, movement and fitness goals while helping to maintain healthy joint and soft-tissue function.
