POSTURE AND EXERCISE THERAPY
Postural Alignment Therapy focuses on your body as a whole. We treat the underlying cause of your chronic pain and injuries. Many types of chronic pain and injuries are caused by the slow deterioration of your posture and the only way to get complete, long-lasting pain relief is by correcting your postural mis-alignments through exercise therapy. Surgery, manipulation, injections, braces, exercises, and stretches designed to target your symptoms are only going to offer, at best, short term relief because they are doing nothing about correcting the cause of your pain – which is your postural alignment.
During your one hour appointment you will learn why you hurt, a game plan to get 100% better, and a personalized set of exercises to get you started right away. It will give you peace of mind knowing that you WILL get better. You will meet one-on-one with a Egoscue University certified Postural Alignment Specialist (PAS) and Board Certified Exercise Physiologist (CEP) who will truly listen to you, your goals, and your expectations. Then we will formulate a plan to help you achieve them. As a team, you and your therapist will evaluate your posture, gait, and various functional tests to determine the root cause of your pain and limitations. We will have you go through a series of exercises (e-cises or Egoscue-cises), created specifically for you, to start correcting your posture and begin eliminating your pain. You will be sent home with pictures, descriptions and videos of your exercises making it easy to continue on your own. Take a look at what an initial visit looks like.
During each follow-up appointment we will discuss your progress, review your current e-cise menu and then go through any new e-cises that will help you to continue to improve. Each follow-up appointment is essential to your continued progression toward a pain free and active life. Postural changes happen over time and take time to correct. The average client will use about 16 sessions in the first 6 months to get pain free and back to doing the activities and sports they love. The clients who do the best long-term, continue to come in once every 1-3 months after they are pain free.
It doesn't matter where you live, we can do your sessions over FaceTime or Skype.
We will work on your specific menu in a group visit. These visits are for people who have a hard time staying accountable to doing their daily menus unless they make an appointment. COMING SOON!!!
