The Difference is a Total Body Approach Instead of a Localized Approach to Rehabilitation!
The traditional model looks at a body part and fixes THAT part. That inherently makes sense, but what if other body parts aren’t working correctly and are causing pain in other parts of the body as a result? These issues happen with MOST people. Unfortunately, there isn’t really anyone who correctly deals with clearing up these compensations.
Let’s say you have knee pain. It makes sense to try fixing whatever is wrong with the knee. The traditional model can be great at this! Many times, however, pain and injury in the knee is caused by a hip or ankle that’s locked up. This lack of hip or ankle mobility causes a stable knee to begin compensating to help the hip or ankle. This breaks down the structure of the knee, leading to pain and injury. With the R3 approach, we dig deeper than just the knee. We would do a reset on the hip or ankle to fix the knee. It’s this combination that allows us to restore optimal movement, which is vital to ensure the pain goes away and most importantly, STAYS AWAY.
Let’s Take a Closer Look at the R3 Approach to Rehabilitation
Reset: “Reset” is a term used in the rehabilitation and fitness industries to describe something that essentially resets the body back to normal function. You may be familiar with resets like chiropractic adjustments, manual therapy (such as massage or active release therapy), stretches, or exercises that restore function, etc. Say, for example, your neck is out of alignment; the chiropractor would perform an adjustment to realign it.
Resets are amazing, but the problem is that a reset usually isn’t enough on its own.Have you ever seen someone who relieved your pain, but shortly after your visit, the pain came back?
Sure. Sometimes you get a quick reset, your pain subsides and performance increases, but in most cases, you need more.
This is the difference between the R1 approach, our name for the traditional model, and our cutting edge R3 approach.
Restore: Now that we’ve reset posture and alignment and also regenerated injured tissues, we can restore the body’s natural movement. Restoring foundational movement is the best way to make certain the body operates correctly and ensure that pain and dysfunction don’t come back. Chronic pain is typically caused from compensations in the body. Now that we’ve fixed the injured area, we need to fix the compensations that caused the pain. Our goal at R3 is to rebuild your movements, making them as close as possible to your childhood movements. We use developmental kinesiology to retrain movement the same way you learned it as a child. This natural way of developing movement is great to revisit; it’s the foundation of how we retrain you to move well again.
