Almost every new client that finds me to be RESET has already tried a more traditional route. Many times they have already been seen by a MD. Typically they were then referred to a PT. The story commonly involves some visits to a Chiropractor that they sought out on their own after the initial medical approach brought little to no perceptible improvement in their symptoms. After the Chiropractor was unable to deliver results, they finally seek me out as their last ditch effort to find answers to their pain symptoms.
Obviously I’m not saying that traditional practitioners cannot help people with their pain symptoms/conditions. Not at all! Quite to the contrary. When there is tissue damage, a medical professional needs to be front and center.
But typically, by the time someone finds me, the traditional approach has already been attempted. The tissue damage has already healed as completely as its going to heal and yet, the approach was unable to deliver satisfactory symptom results. Had it delivered, in the clients’ mind, would there even be a reason in which to seek me out?
I believe the main reason that many people end up finding me is because their symptoms are rooted in functional shortcomings (neuromuscular or musculoskeletal) rather than in structural deficiencies (damaged nervous, muscular or articular tissue). If a persons’ symptoms was only a structural deficiency, they would have already been helped by the medical professionals with which they had previously consulted. Doctors are world class at identifying structural deficiencies and PT’s have been trained to set up rehab programs to help patients recover from structural injuries and Chiro’s are experts at restoring structural mal-alignment to alignment. If it was only a structural issue, these folks would have resolved it.
But… most people dealing with pain symptoms are primarily fighting against functional integrity problems. Their structure is fine (or at least fine enough) but they cannot move as they once did. They are compensating. After structural integrity has been ruled out as the cause of pain by medical pro’s, they need to consult with movement professionals that are skilled in contending with these compensatory movements.
For many people, the proper tool for the job is RESET. RESET practitioners are taught a deep understanding of how the body was designed to move and can expertly identify the true real-time neuromuscular weakest links so that abnormal motion can be restored to normalcy. RESET restores neuromuscular integrity for those who need it and by doing so, amazing stories tend to unfold.
