What is SymFit®?

SymFit® is neutral spine based Fitness that serves your long term injury prevention needs.
SymFit® is a complete Physical Therapy treatment plan that addresses the foundation of the problem.
The SymFit® Healthy Fitness System is a Solution to rising healthcare cost for employees, employers and the self-insured.

The SymFit® Healthy Fitness System was developed out of necessity.  As more clients started having a fixed number of PT visits or unreachable deductibles we had to change our focus from symptom management to condition management.  The condition that brings 90% of our non-traumatic clients to the center is faulty neck and low back loading as a result of collapsed postures throughout the work day. Fitness performed from collapsed posture actually strengthens your ability to do what you do with more faulty neck and low back loading.

Collapsed posture as a result of technological advancement is causing asymmetrical loading through the spine causing vertebrae to come out of alignment and then we start breaking down our soft tissue overload and joint breakdown.  Treating the pain associated with this epidemic is like paying your car payment with your credit card, it only post-pones the inevitable.  

Before SymFit, simple mechanical breakdowns secondary to faulty posture lead to surgery or worse lifestyles void of challenge and passion.  The SymFit® Healthy Fitness system restores your ability to perform your daily activities from neutral spine alignment.  Then progresses you toward complete neutral spine based fitness for life long injury prevention.  The SymFit® Healthy Fitness system is a complete fitness program with wellness resources to help you live a symmetrical life.  When consumed at the center it includes manual therapy before group class to ensure you have unobstructed access to neutral spine alignment and a single focus on making sure you stay within your range of control with each exercise performed within class.  At the center it also consists of access to multiple pieces of Pilates equipment to maximize your neutral spine conditioning experience.  See SymFit® Pilates Program page for more details.

At home manual therapy is replaced by SymFit® self-correction techniques but the structure of each workout is the same.  
1. Restore access to neutral spine alignment to mobilize you were you are most stiff
2. Self-correction as prescribed to ensure you do not have any joints out of alignment
3. Neutral Spine Conditioning to wake up the neutral spine stabilizers
4. Functional Conditioning to break faulty loading patterns with those from neutral spine and symmetrical loading through hips, knee and ankles.  

There are many other components that allow us to better serve your long term fitness and injury prevention needs.  Schedule a consult today to learn more!

The SymFit® Healthy Fitness System is a complete solution to the foundation to most musculoskeletal conditions.  At the center you have access to state-of-the-art manual therapy techniques that help restore your access to neutral spine alignment.  You will be shown pre-treatment functional mobility exercises to ensure that you have done all you can do to address the muscle imbalance that contribute to faulty loading and mis-alignment.  You will be instructed privately on how to perform these exercises on the Pilates equipment as well as the exercise in the classes prescribed.  After being cleared of joint mis-alignment by a SymFit® certified physical therapist you will complete a 20-minute neutral spine based functional fitness class or a 30 minute Pilates allegro class.  You will also be instructed on post-class studio exercises that challenge your application of the 4 SymFit® Principles of neutral spine alignment functionally to compliment your group class.
