Professional Philosophy

The goal of most medical care is the restoration of “normal” function and the absence of pain. Normal is often not sufficient. Moreover, normal is not you. You are unique. Normative values in medicine are typically based on minimal standards of physical function, not always that which is necessary for you to achieve your personal goals and do the things you enjoy. The standards for movement and fitness are trending in an alarmingly low direction. It is now normal, and often medically acceptable, to lack the ability to perform fundamental human movements, to be plagued by nagging injuries, and to be fragile when faced with physical stress. Functioning “normally” does not make one resilient.

Our purpose is to help you restore your physical function so that you can do the things that are important to you with complete confidence – for you to be prepared for whatever it is you wish to encounter.
