Myoskeletal Alignment

The Myoskeletal Alignment program was developed as a tool to help relieve our nation’s neck/ back pain epidemic. By incorporating muscle-balancing techniques with joint-mobilization maneuvers, manual therapists learn to quickly identify and correct dysfunctional neurologically driven strain patterns before they become pain patterns.

I noticed a big difference in my posture and gait as I moved about the day after I was worked on. I was a little tender in places, but I'm excited to see what multiple sessions will bring!

My son liked that his shoulder area that causes lots of pain was assessed and addressed. Was nice to have total body assessment to know where pain was coming from and what areas of the body needed to be worked on. Clinton was very professional and knowledgeable. Was fun to work with.

I have final found the right therapist! After 18 years of living in a wheelchair, I have relief from over working my body. My shoulders have never felt better. I can go 3 weeks (without experiencing pain) until my next appointment. Clinton is very knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. I high recommend him!!
