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.

Clint is a true professional. Always on time and so thorough. He is an absolute God send for getting rid of pain and helping me find ways to make it better without medication. I didn't think it was possible, but the exercises have been amazing and he is able to work out pain in area and improve my overall range of motion.

Clinton is incredibly skilled and very knowledgeable in his field. He is straight to the point of what he feels will work, but still willing to try any and all avenues to ensure his clients leave feeling better than when they walked in. I personally showed up with a wide range of problems, he took his knowledge, along with doing new research and got them addressed. He goes to great lengths for his clients and enjoys the challenge of aiding them in their wellness journey.

I always walk out feeling pain free. I feel like I'm achieving a more balanced body. Clinton is very good at his job. No one else has done this much for me.
by Maria Belen on Jun 12
He always explains what is he doing or about to do: assessment, therapy and exercises. I arrived feeling pain from my neck down to my feet. When I left I could stretch further and my pain was gone. He is not an all cure because he models and tells you which exercises to perform daily to continue to feel better and to keep from feeling all achy and living with pain. It is much much better than taking medicine daily. I will continue to do the exercises so I don't live with aches and pain.
