Soften, Lengthen, Strengthen
Whether muscles are in spasm from injury, intense workouts, or stress, the first step in relief is to soften the tissue and work through any adhesions or scar tissue that may be present in the muscle or around joints.
Restoring a normal range of motion to joints is essential for full recovery. Our practitioners use a variety of stretching techniques, including proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), dynamic stretching routines, and reciprocal inhibition. Once pain has diminished and normal range of motion has been restored, it is essential to strengthen muscles and create correct muscle memory patterns. This essential piece of the puzzle is what creates lasting solutions to injuries, imbalances, and irregular biomechanical patterns that have developed over time.
