How you move affects your pain. So we analyze and fix movement problems creating pain. For instance, if you have back pain, we look closely at your back, hips, knees and feet while you’re walking, standing, sitting, bending, lying down etc. We pay special attention to those movements that are painful to understand what is wrong. We also test tightness and/or weakness of certain muscles that would affect these movements.
We then put all that together into a picture of systemic problems causing pain and how to fix them.
Conditions Treated by Applying Biomechanical Analysis
We apply a deeper understanding of biomechanics to every injury or ache we see.
- Pain resulting from auto accidents
- Head and Neck Pain – including whiplash and headaches / migraines, degenerative joint disease, degenerative disk disease or osteoarthritis
- Orthodontic (Jaw and Occlusal) Pain – including temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction,
- Shoulder Pain – including rotator cuff muscle tears, bursitis, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), tendonitis and impingement syndrome
- Elbow Pain – including lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)
- Hand and Wrist Pain – including gamekeeper’s thumb, DeQuervain’s syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative joint disease and osteoarthritis
- Back and Hip Pain – including lumbar degenerative disc disease, arthritic changes and herniated discs
- Knee Pain – including degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis
- Shin / Ankle / Foot Pain – including shin splints, gout, metatarsalgia and Morton’s neuroma
- Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
- Acute and Chronic Tendonitis
- Athletic and Sports-related Overuse Injuries
- Post-surgical Pain
- Post-traumatic Injuries, Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA), and Work-related Injuries
- Other Chronic Pain Conditions – including myofascial pain and myofascial pain syndrome (MPS)
