Welcome to Athletic Advantage Physical Therapy,
A Myofascial Release Clinic
Join with me on a journey, a path that will recapture the vitality lost when a traumatic injury occurs. This is a journey like no other you may have traveled. Medical professionals will provide a label to your pain or condition and describe what damage has occurred. The true recovery, however, will depend on many other factors such as muscle tissue and skeletal structure that may be unrelated to the injury.
Let me introduce the fascial system and the influence this tissue has on posture, movement, strength, flexibility and painful symptoms. The first leg of our treatment triad is education. Understanding how the body and musculoskeletal system functions.
Rehabilitation is the second leg of our triad. We will work together as a team releasing fascial restrictions, changing posture and alignment that contribute to pain and tightness. Alignment when unbalanced robs us of our flexibility, strength and movement.
Prevention is the third leg of our triad. It represents the action taken to minimize the risk of future injuries by positive methods that influence our lifestyle and activities. Our prevention of injury is not only based on the exercises we do, but how we respond to fascial restrictions limiting our mobility.
Balancing the skeletal posture with muscle energy techniques integrated with myofascial release is the ground work that ensures a solid and balanced foundation.
