Physical therapists are movement specialists, in this context I can identify improper form, structural malalignment, poor posture and dysfunctional movement patterns.
In order for us to move easily and efficiently we must be able to not only attain and maintain proper posture while executing a sequence of moves during normal daily activities or during physical activity such as running or rock climbing. In order for this to happen we must be able to optimize our biomechanics.
Exercise is essential and covers a broad area, my interests and training come from a background in yoga, mat pilates, Chi running, weight/strength training, tai chi and qi gong. So there are a variety of ways I can guide you in order to improve our health. And if your sport falls outside of these areas I can still draw from my biomechanics background to analyze the problem. Golf for example, I have played 27 holes in my entire life. Yet, by breaking down the motion and force needed to successfully drive the ball I help identify and correcting faulty swing mechanics. So my job as a therapist is to help you attain the best alignment both posturally and structuraly. The next step is to teach you the neccessary exercises that will help maintain and progress you towards your goals.
