Why The Kinetic Chain Theory Works

We believe and follow a unique philosophy that utilizes a bio-mechanical model to analyze the movement of the body. Rather than isolating a specific body part, our approach rehabilitates the entire skeletal and neuro-muscular systems. We view the body as a linked system of interdependent segments; acknowledging that each segment is capable of producing dysfunction or wellness in the associated segments.
