Over 28 years in the profession has led to the creation of this unique method of mechanical evaluation and treatment. Compensatory Pattern Management Concepts ™ observes the body's framework based on how it adapts and compensates for a variety of reasons: handedness, anatomical variations, repetitive motions , injury history, etc. Specific tests are utilized to help determine whether the primary issue is neuromuscular, neuroarticular, structural ,or a combination of issues. TEST-TREAT-RETEST is the common theme of each visit. Some level of improvement is expected at each visit. You are then taught to self evaluate and self treat as much as possible between visits.
I have been involved in various forms of fitness activities throughout high school, the Marines, and currently into my 50s. In addition to being a DC for 28 plus years, I was a CSCS through the NSCA for 24 years. I have worked with athletes involved with Crossfit, running,weight lifting, golf, tennis,soccer,field hockey, baseball,football,etc, What I have observed with myself and with these athletes, is that when certain foundational asymmetries/imbalances are present, we tend to suffer with chronic injuries and limited performance.
CPM care helps neutralize many of these common imbalances and asymmetries. Optimally, patients will commit to a simple home routine of corrective exercises and self care to help improve, monitor and maintain a high level of foundational fitness. After all, we can't call it foundational fitness without the exercise...
ATTAINING, MONITORING AND MAINTAINING FOUNDATIONAL FITNESS JUST MAKES SENSE !
GETTING THERE IS A TEAM EFFORT.
THINK ABOUT IT. MANY MOVEMENT PATTERN IMBALANCES ARE ONGOING, AND CONTINUE TO BE MAGNIFIED BY THE SAME REPETITIVE ACTIVITIES PERFORMED DAY IN AND DAY OUT. OUR FIRST GOAL IS TO MAKE YOU MORE BODY AWARE. MORE AWARE ABOUT HOW YOU STAND, REACH, WALK,SQUAT,SIT,ETC.

Each visit is a combination of various manual and physical medicine modalities linked to the chiropractic philosophy of optimizing nervous system functioning . The soft tissues and the joints are given equal consideration and treatment is usually a mix of both soft tissue and joint techniques .
TEST-TREAT-RETEST is the theme for most office visits. Self care and exercises are then prescribed based on your specific needs.
