Over the course of our life, our body inevitably learns compensated movement patterns in order to adapt to certain lifestyle factors, or injuries we incur. This leads to pain, dysfunction and eventually more injuries, catastrophic and acute. Proper mobility exercises are the remedy to this continuum, but we are not talking about plain-ole’ stretching here, or mashing on your foam roller…true mobility is gained through specific sequence of exercises that will arguably be one of the most challenging workouts you’ll encounter. The greater the challenge, the greater the reward with mobility training and the foam roller WILL NOT cut it!!!! We are happy to show you what is needed to get you moving efficiently and pain free!

Functional Range Assessment
The FRA is more than just an assessment, it’s a lie detector test for your joint’s range of motion. Often times we think we posses more range than we actually do… this assessment will find the inefficiencies that are present. All clients/athletes undergo the FRA as a precursor to training. The assessment helps determine the exercises you will be subjected to as it should always be a SAFE AND APPROPRIATE PROGRESSION. If in the event that we find any major deficiencies or there is unnecessary pain in a particular area(s), you may be referred to a trusted physical therapist for treatment.
