Take back Your Life...Get out of Pain!
Peninsula Orthopedic Sports Therapy & Gravity 101 Studio provides a unique, highly effective rehabilitative therapy here on the Peninsula we call "Muscle Memory Rehabilitation".
Muscle memory can be beneficial, as when you learn how to brush your teeth. Repetitive tasks create an "ease" of effort with practice due to the muscle's memory and continued reinforcement each time the task is performed. Just think of how difficult it is to brush your teeth with your "other hand"! On the flip side, muscle memory can be poor, out of balance and destructive with time. An example of this could be an injury where the body develops compensations (adaptations) to continue to function while healing, such as a limp for a sprained ankle or a protective guarding of a painful shoulder to hold it in a position that is "pain-less". This necessary adaption becomes a new muscle memory that remains even after the injury heals. Our work brings awareness to these muscle memories and breaks poor habits so new memories can be "reprogrammed" into the system.
When we bring awareness to the body as a system that functions best when in harmony and balance, we are able to move with strength and confidence. Remember what it felt like to know that your body was capable of spending 5 hours golfing or 2 hours on the courts or even half the day gardening without having pain later? Now that's empowering! You don't have to be twenty-something to have that confidence. And yes, it takes a little work. Thankfully, the body is highly adaptable.
Whether you're recovering from injury/surgery, have a nagging problem or simply know that you need to be more proactive about your body's health...we welcome the opportunity to be a part of your process. Our Team of Therapists incorporate an exceptionally powerful combination of hands on therapy and movement education to make immediate and lasting changes for you. You'll find yourself standing up taller and stronger, and everything you do will be easier and more enjoyable.
At Peninsula Orthopedic Sports Therapy, we invite you to get out of pain and
