A User Manual - for YOU.
A person could get through life without knowing anything about how their body works. In fact that was called the Dark Ages, and it was a short, unhappy existence for most people. In this modern era, we’ve learned how to care for our heart, our gut, our teeth, and that leads to a longer, healthier life. I’m in the particular business of teaching you how to care for your bones, muscles and joints.
There's lots of generic internet advice about how to do this. If you have a particular injury, problem or chronic pain though, you'll benefit from more specific advice. That's why people see me - to learn exactly what their joints and muscles need to do more of (or less of), so that they will last longer.
When I put together a rehab program for you, I start with a blank slate and a database of more than 5,000 possible exercises. I've been assessing how people move for over 25 years, and I will quickly uncover where your particular 'weaknesses' are. In fact, I start this process when I watch how you walk down the hall, and how you get yourself up from a chair. Based on what I find I'll pick out the exact things that are causing problems for you. Then I'll help you figure out how to fix that through some type of exercise. I use my exercise database to create your program to print or email to you.
Think of this program as your own personal "User Manual" for how your body works. Most people need just a handful of exercises to correct how they move. These exact exercises are the ones you need to master. They are not stock exercises - I've chosen them specifically for you. This is your user manual.
Some exercises you'll just need to do for a short while, then we'll change them. Others will become 'forever exercises' that you should always do. I'll let you know, and I always update your written program. You won't be left to just 'remember' things I show you.
At the end of the day, when you learn how your particular body works, you'll turn it into a more finely tuned machine. That's how you'll make your muscles and joints last longer. Isn't that what we all want?
