This aspect of our practice involves the physical restoration of a particular body part, joint or muscle group using specific techniques and exercises to improve function, mobility and eliminate pain. When working with clients, the focus is on the mechanics of the body and entails evaluating its strengths and weaknesses. We gather this information to best determine the root cause of the problem. Once the cause is determined, a plan of action can be implemented. No two clients are alike and pain can be elusive. However, most clients come in to receive treatment, in order to relieve pain or increase strength and mobility.
Acupressure is a therapeutic technique based on the concept of physical pressure being applied to points on the body to clear neurological blockages of stress that results in the healthier functioning of the body. Normally, pressure is applied with the hands and fingers rather than needles (acupuncture). By activating particular points in the body called meridians, acupressure can increase circulation, vitality, energy and joint mobility. It is also a very effective approach for healing back and neck pain, headaches and joint pain. This concentrative process allows the body to turn on it's own self-healing mechanism by sending signals to the central nervous system for relief.
Sometimes an unfortunate result of exercise or sport competition is an injury. Some of the most common injuries include:
Sports Injuries usually result from improper training techniques (i.e. overtraining), insufficient equipment (i.e. worn out sneakers), lack of conditioning or a neglect to warm-up and stretch. At Total Fit and Rehab, we educate all of our clients on proper body mechanics, evaluate athletic gear, teach appropriate warm-up and cool-down protocols, as well as provide recommendations as to the best ways to avoid injuries during training or competition.
Sports Injuries come in two forms.
