Most People Ask Our Patients & Clients What’s So Different and Special About Active Health & Restoration?”

Has traditional exercise outpatient PT or chiropractic “mills” let you down in the past? Those clinics are SO rushed to get you in and out the door because they have a quota to reach for the week, month and year. But don’t me wrong, they DO help a LOT of people every year all over the country.

My concern, though, was that as a former elite level soccer player, I felt insufficient at the standard PT clinics when I would be given the same colored dumbbell as the 80 year old across the clinic. (Nothing wrong with an 80 year lifting weights! I just felt like I was being restrained on actually getting better and the PT was “following the doctors instructions.”

Once I was done with PT, I was NOT physically ready to perform on the field. Worse, my soccer coaches & strength coaches could tell that I was still not ready to be playing competitively at a high level yet.

Frustrated, they sent me back to the PT. But I wasn’t in an pain…

So, the PT sent me to the strength coach to “get stronger”…

The strength coach didn’t feel comfortable putting me under a barbell with my current stiffness in my knee.

Can you see the problem here? I was in the “clinical grey area”, as we call in it our office. I was out of pain (so not the PTs problem anymore) but I was NOT physically able to play (so useless to the team). Strength coaches wouldn’t permit me to lift (so not their problem either). I had nowhere to go.

Perhaps you can relate to the carousel of providers you’ve been to about your pain? I can definitely relate.

So, I decided to open up a chiropractic and physical medicine clinic to serve this very specialized group of people. We know how to safely progress someone from the treatment table all the way up to their highest physical capabilities so when we send them back to their team, coaches, strength coaches, athletic trainers and medical providers know that YOU are ready to COMPETE.

So, to answer the question, “What makes Active Health & Restoration different from other chiropractic and physical therapy clinics?” I would have to say it is our ability to sync chiropractic & physical medicine in an unrivaled experience.

  • We meet you where you are. We plan strategic goals alongside you, and foster a relationship with you that cultivates results.
  • We also have specifically chosen to go “against the grain” so to speak when it comes to traditional chiropractic care.
  • We practice guideline adherent care. Which means, frankly, that if a treatment option has poor long-term effects, we don’t use it. If you are looking for cold laser, electric stimulation, hot/cold packs or fancy tables that vibrate… this is NOT the place for you.
  • We also give every patient a begin date and an end date to their treatment plan. I know, right! A chiropractor who doesn’t want to treat you FOREVER.
  • Any chiropractor that is selling you on a treatment plan without an end date is not practicing guideline adherent care in 2020…

We also receive many “self-referrals” via word of mouth or friends and family ‘recommendations’, as well as from other medical providers, such as orthopedic physicians, neurosurgeons, and chiropractic physicians that like the rehabilitation process done properly, without wasting time or money.
