Conditions We Treat

Headaches and Face Pain

Headache and neck pain can run the gamut. We will address muscle referral patterns, muscle and joint imbalance, nerve dysfunction, and dietary contributions.
  • Cervicogenic headaches
  • Migraines
  • TMJ Disorder
  • Jaw Pain

Neck Pain

Neck pain stems from many different causes. When assessing the neck we assess all the spinal joint to ensure proper shared motion. We also look for any potential disc herniations, bulges, “slipped discs,” etc. Often those and other neck conditions are caused by improper movement patterns and/or imbalance in the pull of the muscles.
  • Cervical Disc Herniation
  • Cervical Disc Degeneration
  • Neck Sprain/Strain
  • Cervical Radiculopathy

Back Pain

This can be a cause of cervical disc herniations, muscle referred pain, improper shoulder stabilization or lack or/excessive mid-back mobility. Treatment is focused on treating the painful tissues and addressing the underlying cause.
  • Pain Between Shoulder Blades
  • Rib Pain
  • Upper Back Pain
  • Mid Back Pain
  • Chronic Muscle Tightness

Ankle and Foot Pain

This is another area that can range from very easy simple joint restrictions or strained muscle to disc herniations/sciatica problems. We will examine the whole lower quarter of the body to find the exact cause of your problem and subsequently give you the tools to resolve it going forward.
  • Ankle Impingement
  • Ankle Sprains/Strains
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Big Toe Pain
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Running Injuries
  • Chronic Ankle Strains

Leg Pain

Often this is the result of improper loading to the tissues that control the foot. This can be a result of increasing training too aggressively or lack of control of the lower limb. We will treat the soft tissue problems and adjust any joint restrictions. At the same time we will work on exercises to achieve proper loading or movement of the lower limb.
  • Shin Splints
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Running Injuries

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a joint designed for mobility. Because of that it often suffers from stability problems. Too often stability exercises are simply aimed at treating the rotator cuff, while ignoring underlying foundational problems including winging shoulder blades or core instability. When treating the shoulder we assess its stability, be make sure surrounding structures are allowing it to move properly, and we look for referral patterns that mimic shoulder pain and treat them.
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Labrum Injury
  • Adhesive Capsulitis
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Bicipital Tendonitis
  • Throwing Injuries
  • Crossfit Injuries

Knee Pain

The knee is commonly the site of pain, but rarely the cause of the pain. Often the knee gets beat up from immobility in the ankle and/or poor control of the hip. Knees are big concerns for a lot of people, especially as they start to get older. We strive to give you the ability to keep those knees healthy and be able to run with the grandkids of run marathons in your 80s!
  • Runner’s Knee
  • Patellar Tendonitis
  • Mensicus Injury
  • ACL/PCL Strain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Illiotibial Band (ITB) Syndrome
  • MCL/LCL Injury

Lower Back Pain

The low back is one of the bigger weak points in the body. Often instability in the low back or hips, or lack of mobility in the hips cause excessive wear and tear on the low back. This can show up in the form of muscle/joint pain, arthritis, nerve irritation or disc issues. We will address the immediate pain generator and then when things have calmed down we will build towards a more stable low back.
  • Sciatica
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Failed Low Back Surgery
  • Stenosis
  • Lumbar Radiculopathy
  • Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Disc Bulge
  • Nerve Injury

Elbow Pain

Often elbow pain is caused by over-dominance of one muscle group over the other. We look into normalizing the opposing muscle groups and teaching the tissues how to properly load. In addition to that, we will look from referred pain from other tissue in the body and address joint mechanics.
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Lateral Epicondylitis
  • Medial Epicondylitis
  • Sports Injuries

Hand and Wrist Pain

This area is prone to pain when parts of the shoulder and arm are improperly stabilized. We will ensure the shoulder girdle is moving and stabilizing properly to allow the hand and wrist to move as they were intended to. If those areas are good we will tease out any trigger points, nerve issues or joint dysfunctions relating to the area.
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • De Quevian’s Syndrome
  • Carpal Tunnel

Hip and Pelvic Pain

Opposite of the shoulder, the hip is designed for stability and commonly runs into mobility problems. We look for joint restrictions and improper muscle balances when treating the hip. We also often find that minor disc bulges/herniations disguise themselves as hip pain. That being said we look at the whole lower half over the body for all contributing factors.
  • Hip impingement
  • Hip Flexor Strain
  • Hamstring Tendonitis
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Pregnancy Pain
  • SI joint Pain
  • Sciaticia
  • Sciatic Nerve Injry
