With the goal of trying to increase the Performance Therapy® experience, we have developed the online video library. Here, our patients can access a fantastic resource for free to help them get better even faster. If you are not a patient you can still have access to the library for an annual fee of $99. Contact Performance Therapy for more information.
There are three categories to the Performance Therapy Exercise Library.
The neurological resets are comprised of exercises that are designed to build functional neural pathways between brain and muscular system that are fundamental to human movement. It is a relearning or reinforcing of the "original" movement program we as humans all went through as infants before we earned the right to get on two feet and walk. Rolling on the ground and crawling are components of this seemingly basic but extremely crucial component of proper, efficient movement.
The warmup and foam rolling section will provide an increase of range of motion, myofacial release, and prepare the muscles for corrective exercise and higher levels of activity. Static stretching has shown to be of benefit but dynamic stretching and range of motion increases BEFORE exercising can be just as beneficial if not more important.
Corrective exercise section of the video library is utilized to target dysfunctions discovered with the Functional Movement Screen. These exercises are used to accurately reestablish function within the basic movement pattern standards required for human movement. These will help to not only correct the 7 tests within the screen but will deter the body from compensating in an inefficient manner that could lead to future injury and pain.
"As an athlete, I am always looking for an advantage. It is easy to think more is better, but at some point, you push your body past its limit. Thankfully when I was injured someone referred me to Mike Danenberg and Performance Therapy. Working with Mike I have learned to train smarter not harder, run more efficiently, and come back quicker when things do occasionally go awry. Mike has always treated me like I am his most important client. He understands how to manage my desire to train and tendency to overtrain. I trust his advice completely. I have taken an hour and fifteen minutes off my marathon time, run sub 16:00 for 5k and finished an Ironman in under 10 hours. I have surprised myself, but Mike never seems surprised. Helping people get more out of themselves than they think possible is what he does. If you truly want to maximize your performance I strongly recommend Mike Danenberg and the talented team at Performance Therapy. "
