Movement based medicine creates quick relief and lasting results

We really mean it when we say “Movement Based Medicine.”  We are the medicine you have not tried and have always needed.  We answer the Why behind your injury or illness.  The most common feedback we hear is “I wish I knew this earlier.”

Foundation #1


Breathing is the most direct way to decrease pain and improve function. It allows multiple systems of the body to return to balance and proper capacity.

  • Reduces strain to the neck
  • Promotes a natural filter of air to prevent infection
  • Massages the muscles of the low back to keep normal tone
  • Restores normal motion of the shoulder
  • Decompresses the disc of the low back to reduce disc bulges
  • Protects the midline from injury while lifting or falling
  • Allows large muscle groups to work instead of small ones
Foundation #2


Bracing is creating a stable system on which the body can attach movement. More importantly, it is the skill of being able to do this while breathing. Nearly all patients are unable to maintain midline stability while breathing upon initial evaluation.

Foundation #3


Hinging creates the cornerstone of all motion. The screening is simple, sit in a chair without bending your back while keeping your feet flat on the ground. A small percentage of people can do this upon initial examination. This simple skill improves nearly all body pain.

  • Protects disc tissue to prevent and heal disc herniations
  • Removes unnecessary load from the knees, neck, and low back
  • Improves global flexibility
