I Specialize in a Wide
Variety of Healing
Take a look at what your first visit will be like at Colorado Springs Movement
We utilize a wide variety of the best treatments available for care specific to your needs.
Functional Dry Needling
Graston Technique (IASTM)
designed metal instruments to stimulate muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and the nervous system to help increase healing rate and decrease pain through desensitization of nerves and increased blood flow to injured or painful tissues.
Resiliency Exercise Training
vulnerable positions in order to get it to adapt and better handle forces in those positions to help reduce injury risk and recovery time. If 99% of us dropped into the splits, we would be gravely injured. The 1% that can do it developed the skill over years of adaptation and practice so that it was no longer dangerous. We can find those exercises for your sport or career to help you remain injury-free.
Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT)
Pain Neuroscience Education
Self Care Strategies
massage, etc can reduce pain in a pinch to help you do what you need to do if you cannot immediately seek care. Many times patients have applied these approaches too aggressively in the past, chronically aggravating an area which keeps them in pain. Introducing these techniques or calibrating what you may already be doing can drastically speed up the healing process.
My Approach and Values
Here at Colorado Springs Movement, our goal is to provide quick relief from pain and dysfunction while empowering our patients to take control of their health. The fact is, if you participate in sports, have a physically demanding job, or are just a normal human, injuries and pain will happen. Many people become fearful that they may not be able to do the things that they love, or the things they need to do to stay mentally, physically, and financially comfortable. Our goal is not only to get you back to normal function, but to empower you with knowledge and resources to make you a more robust, resilient human, lessening the need for care in the future. True Healthcare is treating the whole person, not just muscles, ligaments, and joints.
Our approach involves a three step assessment and treatment process that provides fast relief from pain or movement restrictions while teaching you how to handle these problems yourself, highlighting your strengths and identifying areas to improve. This begins with the following at the first assessment:
Neurological Screen and Orthopedic Tests- includes muscle strength, reflex, and sensory testing as well as orthopedic tests to identify areas where you may not be functioning as well as you could be.
Movement Screen – Identifies common movement strategies that may be causing extra stress on certain tissues, compensations, or pain. Painful “habits” will be identified and new strategies will be employed through exercise.
After we have identified areas for treatment, some or all of the following strategies may be employed to help speed up the healing process and allow for additional exercise therapy: Spinal Manipulative Therapy, Functional Dry Needling, Graston Technique, or Myofascial Mobilization. We like to think of these therapies as “opening a door” in your movement that was previously inaccessible due to pain or restriction, allowing for new movements where the real recovery to begin.
Lastly, Exercise Prescription, Self-Care Strategies, and Pain Neuroscience Education will be employed to ensure you get the most out of your treatment. By showing you ways that you can change your pain or relate to your pain in a different way, as well as exercises and strategies to aid in your own healing, you can be sure that nothing is holding you back!
