From birth we begin to develop dominant and weaker muscles, and throughout life due to lack of activity, injury or accidents we create poor muscles habits that negatively impact your body.
Functional movement corrects your muscle habits or “posture in movement” by determining weaker/dominant muscles and creating a training routine to balance them.
Exercise isn’t only to develop muscles. Good exercise stimulates the nervous system, improving our health. This can be the most simple of routines, as long as there is proper muscle movement.
Because FM training takes into account dominant and weaker muscles, it allows for anyone, no matter the age or physical condition to reap the benefits of exercising.
FMS is our first line of attack when it comes to helping you achieve optimal pain-free movement patterns. These 7 specialized movements allow our FMS certified trainers to screen and assess your current level of movement capabilities, pinpointing weak and unbalanced muscular motor control.
Founder Gray Cook and his team have develop a powerful tool, that has attained immense praised among professional sports teams and physical therapy clinics.
NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system is a sophisticated bodywork modality that can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and other injuries.
The NKT ® corrective movement system protocol employs a system of precise muscle tests has the ability to change the programming of the Motor Control Center (MCC) in the cerebellum. After an injury, your motor control center adapts to a compensation pattern and holds that in its memory forever unless it is convinced to change. A good example is a whiplash accident in which the posterior neck muscles brace for the anterior neck muscles.

Diabetes is a very common and growing widespread disease. Diabetes Type II is known as inuslin resistance diabetes. It is the result of chronic elevations of blood sugar and a decrease in the sensitivity of insulin released from the pancreas.

Chronic pain is ongoing, but oftentimes it is manageable (if not curable). How you manage pain on a day-to-day basis can make a huge impact on your overall sense of well-being. Physical pain can impact your mental, emotional, spiritual and social health, causing a snowball effect.
