The way our bodies move is composed of a complex system of joints, muscles, neural pathways, habits, environmental factors, emotions, genetics, and more. Our movement system dictates how we interact with the world; from the way we breath, to the way we sit, to the way we walk, to the way we pick up our grandchildren. Our job as physical therapists is to evaluate your movement patterns and postural habits to make sure everything is in perfect harmony.
Commonly known as body mechanics, physical therapists are experts in teaching you proper ways to bend, lift, sit, turn, jump, roll, skip, and run. Don’t let anyone tell you there is one perfect way to move. Every body is unique and has different levers and injury risk factors. Our doctoral level training allows us to evaluate your specific needs and teach you the best way to move for your body.
Whether you are training to run a marathon, learning to walk again after surgery, or looking for performance enhancement for your tennis career, the way your body moves matters.
