Neck, Back, and Pelvic Pain Rehabilitation
The spine (neck, mid-back, low back) and the pelvis require focused and thorough evaluation in order to effectively treat. Our therapists will spend up to an hour on your first visit examining and treating not only the pain area, but also the other parts of the spine and pelvis that may be contributing to your symptoms. Spine rehab sessions are always performed with a hands-on approach by a therapist who is dedicated to you for the duration of your treatment session.
It is imperative to understand running pathomechanics (faulty movement patterns and their contribution to injury), arthrokinematics (joint and body positions), biomechanics (effect of forces on the body systems), and program development in order to be able to effectively treat the runner.
Our running specialists are highly skilled in deciphering the nuances of all these factors and creating a customized treatment and training program that can be adapted and revised as needed. Our head running therapist is a certified running coach with USA Track & Field and the Road Runners Club of America and has extensive experience working with injured runners.
Foot & Ankle Rehabilitation
There are 26 bones, 33 joints, and dozens of muscles/ligaments/tendons in the foot and ankle complex. Our lead therapist has extensive experience working with all of them. Not only has he rehabilitated hundreds of feet, but being a runner and former soccer/rugby athlete has given him personal experience in almost every kind of foot and ankle pain. If you have a foot injury he has quite figuratively walked in your shoes.
General Sports Rehabilitation
Many non-traumatic sports injuries are a result of repetition. By nature, sporting activities are repetitious, but when more force, repetition, or volume supersedes the body tissue's ability to handle activity injury occurs. Many of these injuries can be avoided or lessened by using correct movement mechanics. Because many non-traumatic injuries occur from faulty movement mechanics, it is important for your therapist to understand how movement in one part of the body will affect another part of the body.
The therapists at BE will not only look at your injury area, but also the surrounding body movements that may be contributing to the injury. We don't just treat the symptoms, we correct the problem source.
