I follow a joint-by-joint approach when coaching clients. Experienced and knowledgeable coaches, such as myself, understand that dysfunction and/or pain in a joint is not localized, or necessarily centered, in that joint. A dysfunctional joint is more than just a specific point of pain in the body. It also causes pain, discomfort, and compensation of other parts of the kinetic chain (or human body). As a result, there are residual compensation patterns, which in turn, lead to more dysfunction in other areas of the body. For example, a sprained ankle injury sustained months, or even years ago may be the reason you have a nagging pain in your lower back or knee despite the fact that all your x-ray and MRI results are negative.
With this approach and complex understanding of the synergistic connection of the joints of the human body I can find the true origin of a client's pain or dysfunction and help them to alleviate the problem. I utilize a multifaceted approach to help people regain mobility, increase flexibility, promote neuromuscular connections, and build strength by ensuring proper technique and optimal posture. It is a methodical, step-by-step, scientifically tested approach to health and wellness.
