Have you ever taken a golf lesson, hoping to swing like a pro, but instead struggle to keep the ball in play? We may have the answer you are searching for! A person’s golf swing should be developed around their existing physical capabilities and potential. Ever considered the possibility that perhaps there is a physical limitation (joint mobility, muscle tightness, decreased core stability etc.) that inhibits your ability to achieve a functional golf swing? Our expert therapists are well versed in screening for these physical limitations, developing a plan to reverse them, improving your overall enjoyment of golf, and decreasing your risk of future injury!
Have you ever considered that running is a whole body activity? In order to improving running performances, it is important to address not only lower extremity function, but also the trunk and upper extremity as well! The majority of runners tend to focus on the hip, knee, and foot. No runners come to our clinic saying “I need to improve my vital capacity to increase oxygenation.” However, sufficient vital capacity is critically important to for efficient running. At FuncPhysio, we use the FMT (Functional Manual Therapy) assessment, FMS (Functional Movement Screen), and SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment), to treat the body as a whole and address any dysfunction in your system. You will feel your running become easier and more efficient following completion of our comprehensive treatment program. Guaranteed.
Running technique also plays an important role in sustainable speed and injury prevention. But the technique is seldom able to overcome musculoskeletal dysfunction such as joint restriction, muscle adhesion, and decreased motor control. We’ll not only help eliminate any existing dysfunctions, but also analyze and help retrain proper running form to help maximize your existing potential!

Musicians, Dancers, and Singers are athletes too! The level of muscular control and coordination required for optimal performance of these crafts is extraordinary. At FuncPhysio, we work with each artist to understand their functional needs and help enhance performance.
We notice increased number of people get hurt when they start going to a gym, doing yoga/Pilates classes, dancing, running, and other physical activities typically considered “healthy.” What you may not have noticed is current tolerance of your body. Your body may have been over the years of sedentary life style, sudden start of an activity may put stress on your body, and you may get injured.
Performing any activity requiring the repetition of a motion is a risk for injury. For example, a runner uses the same muscles and joint repeatedly in running for miles. If your body has a weak link (pattern of weakness in the body), you most likely put extra stress to this weak link and get injured. This type of injury is not only for those performing sports/physical activities, but also for others, such as those who perform a musical instrument, who use a computer, who cook, and who take care of babies/children.
