what to expect
Fundamental movements are the building blocks for strength, endurance, speed, power and agility. If a person does not move well, over time the body learns to compensate causing micro-trauma to joints and muscles. This may not initially affect performance, but eventually, a person will experience breakdown, inconsistencies, loss of performance, fatigue, recurrent soreness and ultimately injury. Working with an expert such as a physical therapist or strength and conditioning specialist will help set the framework to maximize your training efforts and activities of daily living to help direct where to focus your attention.
our movement therapy programs
At Back 2 Normal our goal is to help you experience positive movement exercises in order to facilitate confidence in daily activities and overall performance.
Our Therapeutic Pilates is often incorporated into our physical therapy care plans. The sessions focus on core control, spinal mobility, alignment, and breathing. We use a variety of Pilates apparatuses to provide assistance or resistance allowing you to move through a greater range of motion with ease and control. This ultimately creates positive movement experiences which builds confidence and supports the functional tasks you need to do in your normal activities.
Programs are designed based on individual needs. We then combine home exercise programs to enhance what is in the physical therapy sessions as well. Once pain levels are managed and functional mobility is restored, patients often move from a rehabilitative physical therapy program to a fitness-based program.
Therapeutic yoga is unique as it helps you return to your normal life, pain-free and feeling yourself again. Our yoga philosophy is centered around self-care, balance, and mindfulness. Self-care is a multifaceted system of tools, uniquely applied to each individual, which move us in the direction of growth, compassion, an uplifted sense of wellbeing, and improved life management skills. We focus on a one-on-one therapeutic approach that uses breathwork, supportive props, and deep sustained postures to help ease the body into a more relaxed state, relieving stress, decreasing pain, and restoring balance to the mind and the physical body.
This movement therapy helps you be your own body therapist. New research has revealed the missing link to pain-free living: a balanced nervous system and healthy connective tissue. These two components work together to provide your body architectural support and optimal mind-body communication. Connective tissue surrounds, intertwines, and connects around every bone, organ, muscle, nerve ending, tendon, ligament, and even blood vessels. When you directly improve the integrity of this fascial system then you indirectly improve the efficiency of movement and performance as well as other systems of the body such as sleep and digestion.
MELT Therapy is a revolutionary intervention that allows anyone to treat their own connective tissue utilizing specialized techniques with a soft body roller and small balls. This method rehydrates the connective tissue, rebalances the nervous system, and restores space to compressed joints. Balancing the connective tissue is critical for anyone recovering from pain or injury, wants to improve their overall function, and be empowered to be their own bodyworker.
We know you want to feel your best – quickly. Our goal is to find the true cause of your injury and identify movement dysfunction starting the first day of your evaluation. Through movement pattern screening, we can isolate if your limitation is due to mobility restrictions or loss of stability and motor control. This helps you receive specific strategies to get quick relief and results.
