Pain caused by muscle stress and overuse does not have to put you on the sidelines of everyday life. At Long Life Therapeutics, we design our individualized treatments for you to feel and function better! We offer over 20 years of experience and intuitive touch to help reduce and manage your pain caused by exercise, sports, work, injuries, post-surgery, and chronic conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.
During our initial consultation with you, we will review your medical history and daily activities. We will assess your potential causes of pain due to posture, range of motion, and more. This approach will enable us to customize your treatment for the best results possible, using (but not limited to) these modalities:
Neuromuscular - Trigger Point:
manipulates muscles, tendons, and connective tissues to bring balance to the nervous system.
muscle and connective tissues are deeply manipulated to release chronic stress.
mixture of stretches and massage strokes that releases tension and free constrictions from your muscles.
various massage techniques in combination with a range of motion and flexibility proticals.
Because we understand how pain affects the body, we can effectively apply massage therapy on your tight muscles to promote their relaxation, rebalancing, and recovery —as well as the associated connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments. This therapy will improve circulation, reduce fatigue, improve healing, and provide for better sleep.
We aim to go beyond for you to provide the help and tools you need for pain relief and management. So, in addition to your therapy session, you will walk away with guidance that is specific to your needs, such as proper posture at work &/or certain routine activities, stretching protocols, how and when to ice, plus self-care tips and advice.
Our Functional Fitness Program
At Long Life Therapeutics, we re-train your body to comfortably and adequately perform routine activities such as walking, bending, lifting, standing, sitting, and climbing stairs. With extensive knowledge and understanding of how the body moves and what happens over time to create dysfunction, we will coach you to better posture, balance, coordination, power, and endurance so you can get back to being functionally fit and injury-free.
Your training exercises will most likely involve safely using (&/or safely learning to use) fitness equipment such as:
We will create a personal action plan to establish goals in sync with your age, fitness level, and needs. Working the plan in 30, 45, or 60 minutes, you will learn simple, safe movements and exercises. Each will progressively strengthen the smaller muscle groups that are essential to getting and keeping the body in alignment. We will wrap up your training session with guidance to help you continue making progress between your visits with us. We will provide you with an at-home plan that includes balance exercises, stretches, and advice on practicing proper posture and gait.
How soon will you be back on track and functioning optimally? Although you should start to notice results in a few short weeks, the speed and extent of your results will vary according to several factors. These include your starting fitness levels and goals, frequency, intensity, length of training sessions, and how much you practice at home.
Pilates- Coming Soon
Our Pilates does not over-build up specific pieces of the body and disregards others. Long Life Therapeutic focuses on full-body wellness, including the breath and the psyche, and gives a degree of integrative wellness elusive elsewhere.
The moves may look simple, but they take a lot of precision and control. It's not like doing a bunch of crunches; there's a strong emphasis on technique.
You can do Pilates on an exercise mat, either in a class or at home. We offer you classes in our Total Recovery area that has special equipment, and a Pilates Instructor who can supervise you. Pilates classes typically take 45 minutes to an hour, but you can do fewer moves in less time.
You’ll get stronger, more sculpted muscles and gain flexibility. You may also have better posture and a better sense of well-being. Plan on doing this workout a few days a week, in addition to cardio, since Pilates isn't aerobic.
If you are looking to strengthen your abdomen and pelvis as well as maintain good posture, then Pilates is for you. It also has a strong mind/body connection, so you may like it if you enjoy yoga but need a more intense core workout.
Pilates is great for strengthening and toning with a focus your core and for increasing your flexibility. Pilates involves precise moves and specific breathing techniques. It’s not for you if you prefer a less structured program. It also won’t fit your needs if you are looking for an aerobic workout.
Pilates can be very demanding, so start slowly.
Our goal is to go above and beyond to provide you with the tools you need for a long athletic career or active life. So in addition to your therapy session, you will walk away with guidance that’s specific to your needs,
