The Key to Health

        This past year I became certified in Functional Range Release and Functional Range Conditioning. These techniques have become integral to my practice and I have seen far greater success with my patients than before.

        I want to discuss some basic physiology that is vital to know if you want to live a healthy life. Our bodies are efficient systems and when certain body parts are under-utilized they start to break down. Muscles get smaller and weaker, joints get stiffer. The less muscle you have, the less energy your body needs to live, it is very efficient. The problem is that with weaker muscles and stiffer joints your mobility decreases as well. When you have no mobility, well…you stop moving. You can see where this is going.

        Movement is the key to health. You have to move to loosen up those joints and strengthen those muscles. The only way the joints in our body get the vital nutrients they need to stay healthy is when they are moved.

        When people start to begin to move again they often come across problems. They are moving joints they have not moved in months or even years and may find that certain restrictions or weaknesses occur.

        That is where I can help. What I basically do is allow your body to function normally. That may seem like a simple explanation and it is. The most important part of my treatment is what you do after it. Exercises and mobility work are key components to my treatment programs. If they are not done, you will not improve your mobility, your strength and most importantly…your health.
