A lot of pain management methods involve surgical-, drug- or impact- related approaches that can challenge your body. However, our program is developed around body mechanics, ergonomics and posture awareness to avoid any increasing stress on the roots of your pain.</span>We are called<strong> “Get Preventive”</strong>, because we approach pain management as a lifestyle change and we believe that you can prevent your pain as you go about your day. We believe that what you do outside of your work out and pain management sessions has more impact on the decreasing of your pain.There are different programs that we offer, based on the intensity of your need as well as what you feel comfortable with. We also specialize in helping people recovering from motor vehicle accidents (MVA) and strokes. From 1-on-1 sessions at the comfort of your home to a business program for your company or co-workers, we would love to help you to decrease pain and enjoy life.<br />[/av_textblock][av_hr class=’invisible’ height=’50’ shadow=’no-shadow’ position=’center’ custom_border=’av-border-fat’ custom_width=’50px’ custom_border_color=’#000000′ custom_margin_top=’70px’ custom_margin_bottom=’70px’ icon_select=’no’ custom_icon_color=” icon=’ue808′ font=’entypo-fontello’]<br />[/av_section][av_section min_height=” min_height_px=’500px’ padding=’no-padding’ shadow=’no-border-styling’ bottom_border=’no-border-styling’ bottom_border_diagonal_color=’#333333′ bottom_border_diagonal_direction=” bottom_border_style=” id=’values’ color=’alternate_color’ custom_bg=’#5f8789′ src=” attachment=” attachment_size=” attach=’scroll’ position=’top left’ repeat=’no-repeat’ video=” video_ratio=’16:9′ overlay_opacity=’0.5′ overlay_color=” overlay_pattern=” overlay_custom_pattern=” av_element_hidden_in_editor=’0′]<br />[av_hr class=’invisible’ height=’50’ shadow=’no-shadow’ position=’center’ custom_border=’av-border-fat’ custom_width=’50px’ custom_border_color=’#000000′ custom_margin_top=’70px’ custom_margin_bottom=’70px’ icon_select=’no’ custom_icon_color=” icon=’ue808′ font=’entypo-fontello’][av_one_half first min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=” mobile_display=”][av_heading heading=’Specializations’ tag=’h2′ style=’blockquote modern-quote modern-centered’ size=’26’ subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ padding=’0′ color=” custom_font=” av-medium-font-size-title=” av-small-font-size-title=” av-mini-font-size-title=” av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” admin_preview_bg=”][/av_heading][av_hr class=’short’ height=’50’ shadow=’no-shadow’ position=’center’ custom_border=’av-border-fat’ custom_width=’50px’ custom_border_color=’#000000′ custom_margin_top=’70px’ custom_margin_bottom=’70px’ icon_select=’no’ custom_icon_color=” icon=’ue808′ font=’entypo-fontello’][av_textblock size=’13’ font_color=’custom’ color=’#f4f4f4′ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” admin_preview_bg=’rgb(34, 34, 34)’]Backs, hips and knees<br />Pre- and Post Surgery<br />MVA’s (Motor Vehicle Accident)<br />Strokes<br />Body Mechanics<br />Ergonomics<br />Posture Awareness<br />Energy Preservation<br />Aquatics<br />Pain Management[/av_textblock][/av_one_half][av_one_half min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=” mobile_display=”][av_heading tag=’h2′ padding=’0′ heading=’Our Non Invasive Method’ color=” style=’blockquote modern-quote modern-centered’ custom_font=” size=’26’ subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ custom_class=” admin_preview_bg=” av-desktop-hide=” av-medium-hide=” av-small-hide=” av-mini-hide=” av-medium-font-size-title=” av-small-font-size-title=” av-mini-font-size-title=” av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=”][/av_heading][av_hr class=’short’ height=’50’ shadow=’no-shadow’ position=’center’ custom_border=’av-border-fat’ custom_width=’50px’ custom_border_color=’#000000′ custom_margin_top=’70px’ custom_margin_bottom=’70px’ icon_select=’no’ custom_icon_color=” icon=’ue808′ font=’entypo-fontello’][av_textblock size=’13’ font_color=’custom’ color=’#f4f4f4′ av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” admin_preview_bg=”]<br />Get Preventive is a truly non invasive program.
