Beating Back Parkinson's Disease
Postural asymmetry (misalignment) is sometimes associated with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Using gentle stretching and strengthening techniques we attempt to restore the proper musculoskeletal postural relationships intended for your body. Over a period of weeks muscle lengths are reset and your skeleton is repositioned for a gradual return to the postural design originally intended for your body. If you’ve been told that surgery is the only thing that will relieve your pain, consider one more option. While we can’t help everyone, these techniques have provided relief to many people with low-back, hip, shoulder, neck and wrist pain, etc. - without the use of medication or manipulation.
