Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
Wow. Thanks so much, man. This has been incredibly helpful.
Seems like I need:
Short term adjustments – weekly (ART, Graston, Chiro)
Medium-long term adjustments – daily (MWOD + more mindful training patterns)
Long term postural restoration (including proper breathing mechanics) – training + ongoing practice (Egoscue, Gokhale, PRI)
A doctor’s opinion (see a good physician)
A couple questions come up with this:
How to identify a “good” practitioner in any of these areas? Should I expect to see immediate improvement? If I don’t, should I move on to someone else?
What about Grey Cook / FMS-related stuff? Would this fall into the category of long term postural restoration? Am I covering this by training well and focusing on great form or should I see a specialist to help correct side-to-side imbalances?
This seems like a major time commitment. I can train 3-5 times per week (gym). I can plan on a 1/2 hour session at home per day. And I can make time for one appointment a week. Any suggestions on how to fit it all in?
Any thoughts on all of that would be appreciated. If not, no problem. These are questions I can wrestle with too.
