Cycling

Posture and movement are based on patterns of muscle activation and deactivation. Cycling posture provides continuous feedback to the systems of the body altering their normal physiological and anatomical capabilities; ultimately producing adaptive changes in muscle length-tension, faulty joint mechanics and neuro-mobility deficits.

Equestrian Performance

Are you a performance Equestrian rider?

Improve your performance with improved posture and strength.

OUT OF SYNC?

Back Pain?  Knee Pain?  Neck Pain?

So, you already know that when your horse has pain it affects you as a rider and conversely, your pain affects the performance of your horse…

What if I told you all of your aches and pains are stemming from a few core points in your body and if you address these you will not only no longer have pain, but your ability to function as one with your horse will vastly improve!

YOUR HORSE WILL THANK YOU

Now, not that this is an easy task, but understanding the problem is half the battle! I’ve been a full-time practicing physical therapist for 25 years – continuously focused on understanding the mechanics of the body.

This is what I’ve found – our bodies develop bad patterns, i.e., pelvic rotations, rib cage torsions, excessive thoracic kyphosis, forward head, etc. With these patterns, we also experience faulty joint mechanics, muscle length-tension issues, fascial restrictions and neural deficits.

Learn how to correct these patterns, maintain these corrected patterns and become pain-free! CLICK HERE

Your horse will thank you!
