Our treatment approach at Joint Effort is quite different from your traditional physical therapy clinics. We specialize in Postural Restoration - a whole-body approach to treating pain and dysfunction. Here are a few things that we do that are different, but extremely effective!
1 - We have you blow up balloons. Your diaphragm and pelvic floor are MAJOR influences in not just your posture, but how you move. When the ribcage and pelvis are not coordinating properly, it can create problems in shoulders, hips, knees, and backs. We use balloons, straws, bubbles, kazoos - anything to get a prolonged exhale to move ribs. Magic things happen when diaphragms are activated properly; shoulders start to move, backs feel better, and stress is reduced.
2 - We focus on your daily movement. We spend ALOT of time decoding your daily habits, what you do daily, how you sleep, how you work, how you like to breathe, how you like to sit when you drive, and on and on and on. We work to help re-wire your brain to do some movements a little differently, so you can get out of bad patterns and habits. This is especially important with chronic pain, and a huge key to being successful.
3 - We help you develop a team (if you need it!). If you have complex issues going on, you likely won't be fully successful with only one discipline involved. We have a team of providers in-house (massage therapy, reflexology, and acupuncture), and out of the facility on your side! From dentists, to chiropractors, to psychiatrists and rolfers, we are equipped with a laundry list of providers that can help you get to where
you want to go. Our assessments look at how your system as a whole is working together, so we often find connections that could be a missing link for your pain management. For example, jaw position or teeth occlusion can sometimes be a major factor in chronic neck pain. You might have underlying emotional trauma that is preventing your system from physically healing.
