“What can Occupational Therapy do?”
My revolutionary “Movement Therapy” program helps improve upper body strength, movement, balance, and function and it often works in as little as 8 sessions. Depending on the complexity of your condition.
It’s a high-effort, intensive exercise-base therapy that uses a single amplitude (bigger movements), and teaches the amount of effort required to produce normal movements. It translates the bigger movement to produce normal everyday activities. It teaches individuals to use the bigger movements anywhere, anytime in daily living.
In case you were wondering, it’s all-natural. No drugs. No injections. No surgery involved.
This discovery has led to a dramatic increase in how fast my patients got better. They were able to move better, sleep, perform daily activities again. They were able to play sports, work and live their life again!
Not all treatments are the same.
Not all traditional treatment leads to a better function and movement (not by any means). And believe it or not, some may actually make you worse! Not all practitioners treat stroke the same. And not all treatment facility does this “Movement Therapy”.
My method is highly unique. I focus on amplitude, high-effort, intensive, bigger movements in the entire body to get quick maximum results.
