BodyFix Method™ is a straightforward program of exercise therapy to eliminate chronic and traumatic pain. BodyFix Method™ is not your standard physical therapy. Traditional PT focuses on the site of the pain. We find the underlying cause of the pain and eliminate it from its source.
Poor body positioning and faulty movement patterns cause most chronic pain, and our restorative exercise programs can correct that imbalance. Many of our clients have come to us as a last resort, after all other treatments have failed, and have left wishing they had come to us first.
We will help you:
- Eliminate Pain
- Avoid Pain Medications and Surgery
- Restore Balance and Function
We treat all musculoskeletal conditions, including weekend warrior injuries, neck and shoulder pain, migraines, TMJ, rotator cuff injuries, low back pain, bulging and herniated discs, failed spinal surgeries, stenosis, scoliosis, sciatica, ACL and meniscus tears, foot and ankle pain, neuromas, tendonitis, and Parkinson’s disease. Our clients range in age from teenagers to seniors.
Initial treatment starts with a postural evaluation, a functional screening, and a gait assessment, and includes a personalized program of targeted stretching and simple at-home exercises to reinforce the work done during your visit. Follow-up sessions will continue to restore correct muscle habits, develop good movement patterns, and to eliminate pain.

Summer Sports Without Knee and Ankle Pain
with Anita & Kat
Saturday May 20th, 2017, 10am – 1pm
Summer sports, running, bicycling, volleyball, a pick-up ball game, even long walks on the beach, all require strong ankles and knees.
Swimming, diving, running, and playing with your kids demands a stable knee and strong ankles to keep up with them and to keep you balanced! Ankle sprains happen to everyone, more than 3 million cases a year.
Ankle sprains are not an old folks’ issue. Children from 6-13, teenagers from 14-18, and young adults from 19-40 have the same incidence of ankle sprains as middle-aged people from 41-60. After age 60, the incidence of ankle sprains actually goes down. Go figure!
The ankle is a strong motion and rotating joint, but it needs balance and control. Our daily life of walking on unforgiving surfaces with hard shoes doesn’t build ankle or foot strength, just avoidance patterns. Sitting most of the day doesn’t strengthen any muscle.
The knee is the most injured joint in the body, and its injuries are increased by the prevalence of ankle sprains. Knee injuries actually increase with age. Knee injuries to men and women occur in 15% and 20% of the population, respectively.
The big thigh muscles need help from the lower leg and ankle to support the knee. Female athletes are between twice more likely to injure their anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) than men. Women aged over 25 are 2.5 times more likely to tear their ACL than any other group.
Fitness, or the lack of it, plays an important role in general. Getting fit, strong, and ready for summer play and sports requires focus, a bit of work, and knowledgeable trainers and therapists, people who know body mechanics. It’s not all about big muscles. It’s learning how to control movements with balance and strength. Good alignment of joints and muscles helps us perform better and stay safe all summer long.
Swimming, diving, running, and playing with your friends and family on the beach and around the pool are great summer activities but they require healthy and strong joints. Simple, DIY exercises will do the job and you can learn them in a friendly and encouraging setting at a BodyFix Method™ workshop.
By design, the workshops are small and tailored to the needs of the participants. It’s hands-on work, not a sit-and-listen lecture. Before you start training for that long run, those long tennis matches, or serious walks in the woods or on the beach, come to our Summer Sports Workshop. Your ankles and knees will thank you.
