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.
"I started working with Mike Danenberg about a year ago, after developing significant knee pain that set me back in my training and causing me to miss my "A" race. I had seen a number of medical professionals and treatments, which left me with big expenses but no progress. Within a short time under his guidance, I have bounced back better than ever, achieving several racing goals."
"During the Pinhoti 100 a couple weeks ago, I was really struggling. I thought about what Mike taught me in regards to racing running form and applied his techniques. Around mile 55, I started to have IT band pain around my knee. I immediately recognized that bad form was causing the problem and adjusted by leaning forward (and going fast!) I ran relatively pain-free from that point on and finished with the most incredible PR yet. I believed I could crack a 24 hour finish, hoped to come in around 22, and was shocked to see my overall time of 21:31:56."
"Mike and the staff at Performance Therapy accurately assesses form and technique as indicators of potential injury. It's not always easy work, sometimes challenging to correct bad habits, but it has helped me be a better-informed and mindful athlete. I owe much of that to Mike's keen eye, excellent advice and continual feedback."
