ProActive Healthcare & Chiropractic

We see everyone as an athlete in our practice. As an athlete centered performance program, assessing overactive, under active and habituated areas of the brain to take performance to higher levels by using functional neurology and biomechanics.

Many times we see patients that have gone to multiple other doctors, rehab centers and practitioners and get improvements that they have not seen before. Our approach is different because we created a personalized program for each of our patients built around movement neurology, pain neurophysiology, visual and vestibular interactions with musculoskeletal system, motor learning concepts, behavior modification approaches, and more.

What does that mean in simple English? We assess how you move, neck, back, arms and legs. We watch your movement and posture. This tells us how your brain is functioning. How? Well your brain controls how your posture and how you move based on controlling the muscle tone and joint movements. When you have abnormalities in posture and movement it is more complicated than just a tight muscle or a stuck bone. Movement is complex and we will show you how you can improve both your posture and movement for either better performance or to just get out of chronic pain.

What Makes Our Care Unique

Pain neuroscience: we check the different pain fibers going to the area of pain. Sometimes the body wants hot, cold, vibration, compression, KT tape, or another stimulation.

Movement Neurology: we determine if all your joints are moving fully in all directions. If they are not we determine if it is a muscle, nerve or receptor issue and give you ways to make changes. We walk you through how to move all your joints in all normal movement patterns.

Sports Vision Training: your body will make posture changes if you have poor vision function in one or both eyes. If you have a weaker left eye you may be changing your head to use the right eye more. You may have 20/20 vision when you are standing still and looking at a non-moving target, but vision get worse when you are moving or the target is changing positions.

Vestibular rehabilitation: this is a system found in your ears that control balance and vision when you are moving either your head or body. If this system is not working you will experience vertigo/dizziness, motion sickness, or may just have lower energy because it strains your visual system which uses much of your body’s fuel.

Respiratory rehabilitation and training: if you are not having proper inhalation or exhalation or your diaphragm muscle is too tight, your brain is probably not getting enough oxygen or an improper balance of oxygen/carbon dioxide. This can lead to fatigue, muscle tightness and improper brain function. We assess for hyperventilation and arrhythmia breathing patterns. If you have dysfunctions we will show you how to breath better for better movement or pain relief.

Modern strength and mobility training: we offer strengthening programs but ours are unique for brain function. It is strange but we may only us resistant training for one side of the body for a few weeks to improve pain on the opposite side of the body. Our goal is for you to have full mobility in your neck, back, shoulders, elbow, wrists, hips, knees and feet with no pain.

We Help You

Our typical patients include those who are suffering from:

  • Chronic illness, chronic pain
  • Chronic stress, anxiety, trauma
  • Poor sense of balance, trouble walking
  • Headaches and back pain
  • Breathing and digestion problems

By identifying and training underperforming parts of the brain, we can achieve almost immediate gains in performance, including:

  • Strength, flexibility &range of movement
  • Balance
  • Coordination
  • Vision
  • Activity-specific skills

Your body only performs as well as your brain lets it. If your brain is underperforming, your body underperforms too. So, it makes sense that your brain should be at the heart of everything you do to improve your movements.
