Muscle testing

Physical Therapy

According to the APTA “Physical therapists are movement experts who treat people of all ages and abilities, helping them improve and maintain function and quality of life.”

At Move Better we provide1:1 treatment that work towards your individualized goals. This occurs through using a movement screen to help identify faulty patterns. We look at whole body movement, in conjunction with the movements required for normal gait, to correct dysfunction and use muscle testing to determine which structures need manual therapy vs. which need exercises. We use functional exercise that encourage the body to feel new movement and space, in hopes of changing old, inefficient movement patterns, which may create discomfort and pain. We work with you to get you back to doing the activities you want to do.

Fitness

Move Better offers functional strength training via 1:1 training or in small groups of 2-4 clients. Every client receives a movement screen which looks at 7 basic movement patterns that are an integral part of everyday life. Exercise programs will be individualized to help you achieve your optimal mobility and strength goals.

We Correct These Patterns Through a Combination of Modalities

How We Determine What You Need

We know that while everyone was born being able to move in all the same directions, not every body has the same limitations or injuries. We watch you move and make sure your treatment is based on your needs and not a basic recipe book.

Movement

We believe it’s important to be able to do your exercises correctly and on your own. We also believe that your home program shouldn’t take all your time. You will be taught a variety of exercises that are tailored to your needs and that you can do throughout the day when the time is right for you 

Kinesio-taping

A hypo-allergenic tape system that can be used to improve proprioceptive awareness. We also have found it helpful to decrease swelling.

Myo-Cranial-Fascial Therapy

A combination of soft tissue massage, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy. This is a whole body reset of the cranial-sacral and fascial system. We use this as a tool to help correct movement dysfunctions. You may also opt for a separate session designed to quiet your nervous system and promote whole body relaxation.
