I love foam follers...they create so many injuries and that means more business....in reality...they should be banned.  Obviously not too many people understand what is really going on when you are wincing and feeling pain as you role you ITB, etc.  They actually work against your performance...another gimmick to make some people money.See More

"One of the issues I find in many athletes is leg length discrepancies...usually the left leg is shorter than the right one...most likely caused by tight psoas muscle...this LLD causes imbalance and can lead to back and hip pain and disability."

Helping Athletes Thrive

For the past 25+ years, I have been working with high school and college athletes through my sportsmassage and related services. As a trigger point therapist, I help athletes avoid injuries by identifying triggers early. If an injury does occur...and trigger points account for 75% of most athletic injuries...the injury can be healed more quickly and completely than with just traditional services such as stim, ultra sound and ice.

Is A Picture worth A thousand words?

This summer many high school and college athletes have been coming to my clinic with a variety of injuries. Many of these injuries have occurred in the various gyms where these guys work out.

CHILL TIME

To me, there is no one on the planet who is more stressed out than a high school or college student/athlete...except maybe the coach. While stress begins as mental "trash talk", it eventually becomes a physical issue. Muscles tighten because of stress; focus is altered; hormones start pumping and you end up with an injued or unhappy athlete. For the most part, we professionals do not pay enough attention to this stress situation.

As a sport psychologist and massage…
