Movement Retraining

We believe it is important to first, restore a person's freedom of movement, then second, to teach them a new, more efficient way to move.  This may include strengthening muscles that are weak, stretching tight areas, and learning new movement patterns entirely.  The best manual therapy techniques will always be more effective if you learn how to move differently and break old, unhelpful patterns.  This is true whether you are learning a new way to open and close your mouth (so your jaw doesn't click anymore), walk without your hip hurting, or learning how to squat the proper way.
