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.
"In 2014 I was exceeding all of my endurance goals, completing my first Ironman, and finishing in the top 10 of my USAT age group in the state... until an injury had me sidelined. Of course Mike Danenberg was the first one I went to help "fix me," but little did I know there was more going on in my body than the surface pain I was feeling. After a month of consistent ART treatments, we were able to dig in deeper and figure out why I wasn't seeing results. In addition to weekly ART treatments, I began a consistent strength regimen. The first day I could barely lift my right hip off the ground. With time and dedication to the plan, I began to see improvements. 3 months and I began to train again, with the help of Mike's running gate analysis and tweaks. 5 weeks later I am not only 100% back, I am stronger than I have ever been. I've gained 14% in threshold on the bike, and completed a new personal best in a 5k. It wasn't an overnight fix, which at times was very frustrating, but I am stronger now because of it. I continue to dedicate two mornings a week to my strength training at Performance Therapy NC, one of the best investments I have chosen for myself because I know it will pay huge dividends as the 2015 season begins."
