We help active people in Austin quickly recover from injury so they can keep playing their sport, exercising, and enjoying life … free from painkillers and surgery
If you’ve found your way to this page, it’s likely that you have some sort of injury, pain, or movement limitation.
Perhaps you’re having a hard time deciding on exactly what to try first?
Or maybe you’ve already tried various treatments but you’re still in pain?
Many of our clients find us after their physician told them “you just need to rest,” but rest alone wasn’t the answer and every time they tried to be active again, the pain would return.
Many have been given pain pills and muscle relaxers but don’t like using them, don’t want to become dependent on them, and know that those things are not treating the true causes of their pain.
Some have tried physical therapy before but were at a clinic where they just repeated a bunch of exercises they could do on their own time, and the physical therapist rushed from one patient to the next … rarely using any hands-on manual therapy or spending much one-on-one time with them.
Some have relied on their personal trainer or massage therapist to fix the problem even though those professionals don’t have the training or legal scope of practice to diagnose and treat complex pain/injury.
Some have even had surgery that didn’t solve the problem, and occasionally made them even worse.
Does any of the above sound like your current situation? …
