Exercise Therapy of Kansas City specializes in fixing chronic pain by addressing postural alignment and muscle balance through low demand exercises and corrective positions.
When traditional treatments fail, many people with chronic pain resign themselves to living with the pain, but chronic pain is not a disease! Chronic pain can be eliminated to give you a full and pain free life again.
The fundamental concept of the human body is that muscles move bones. Many times the place where you are feeling the pain is not the source of the problem. For example, if you have knee pain it might be because your knee is not tracking correctly and this causes wearing, which causes it to break down. So by re-aligning your hip, knee and ankle with muscle education, it can stop the wearing and deterioration and help the pain go away. We can apply this concept to all chronic pain to transform your life.
At Exercise Therapy of KC we have two options, an in-clinic treatment program or an online treatment program. In both we begin to educate the muscles through a series of noninvasive, low demand stretches and strengthening exercises that fix the root problem of the symptom.
Along with fixing your pain, we want to educate you on why you are having pain and retrain your muscles to move your bones in a more functional manner. Like with any learning, the re-education of muscles is a process and it does not happen overnight, but we are here to guide and support you every step of the way.
During the one on one in clinic program, your first session will consist of a thorough evaluation of your posture and gait, and a review of your medical history and lifestyle. The evaluation, postural and gait analysis will help us determine what exercises you need to decrease your compensations and fix your pains.
