Strengthening uncompensated movement patterns is a feature of our process that helps to create permanency behind our repair. Contracting muscle tissue only benefits the patient if and when the athlete does so in perfect posture; in the appropriate sequence; with symmetry and with a high speed of contraction. Outside of this framework, compensatory movement is propagated and actual rehabilitation is not occurring. We use a patented technology (ARPwave), to ensure muscle contraction is specific to where strength gains are needed.
Genuine speed and strength are valued attributes that become compromised when the brain prioritizes protection over performance. Returning the patient to a state where they can access the full capacity of the motor cortex for high-performing, uncompensated muscular movement should be the clinical goal. - C. Robert Luckey
