Spine & Extremities

All 33 vertebrates communicate with each other and with your joints. Pain can result when the scaffolding of our bodies fails to support us. Injuries such as falls, car accidents or even sitting can create a kink in the system that affects the support these structures provide. It’s not uncommon for folks to normalize back or joint stiffness living with a constant hum of discomfort in their daily lives. Unfortunately, the cascade of events over time will create further breakdown in their joints, discs and surrounding structures leading to costly management of pain through medications, injections and perhaps surgery. Additionally, it takes more than a strong core to maintain a healthy spine and strong joint integrity. The goal with manual therapy is to facilitate mobility where there are stiffnesses, re-orient the muscles to fire correctly and unlearn old habitual patterns of movement that
continue to inflame the system.
