We seek to optimize your kinetic chain through premium hands-on physical therapy and performance enhancement techniques. This means linking pathways through your body to promote efficient,
coordinated, powerful movements. We accomplish this by evaluating each part of the body, head to big toe, to identify areas of dysfunction. Restrictions to joint mobility, muscle weakness, faulty
sequencing and activation patterns may start out as small unnoticed problems, but lead to compensations, new muscle memory and decreased performance far away from their origin. Together we can
uncover these dysfunctions, correct them and increase your performance and feelings of wellness.
