Finding real relief from any number of ongoing pains and injuries, in many cases, doesn’t have to be as difficult as one thinks. Functional Therapy and Training helps to reduce pain, return range of motion and boost performance, as an often smart alternative to surgery and dangerous drugs.

It’s a well-kept secret in the fitness industry that many exercise programs neglect key parts of functional fitness, often leading to nagging or even severe conditions such as arthritis pain, sciatic pain, neck pain or shoulder pain that can impair a person’s lifestyle greatly.

It can often correct many or most of these problems, improve physical performance and boost overall real fitness levels – where a person not only looks good, but they can move and perform in healthy, vibrant ways. While conventional medicine, chiropractic care and physical therapy are failing to address the issues related to arthritis pain, sciatic pain, neck pain or shoulder pain successfully clients have embraced the functional therapy with open arms.

By teaching how the body was meant to move, rather than someone just exercising in a random and chaotic way, real injuries can be prevented, old wounds can be healed and performance can skyrocket. And those benefits apply to men and women, the young, the old and everyone in between. Functional Therapy and Training is one of the most important things we offer.

Doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists mostly treat the area of pain while functional therapy and training assess and treat the body parts outside the area of pain.
