I wish I could give F.I.T. more than 5 stars! From the moment I walked into their office, I felt supported and heard. They took time to listen to my experiences, and then thoroughly evaluated me before being spot-on with a diagnosis - which was confirmed by an MRI. My therapist is gentle, yet incredibly firm with her manipulations and exercises. She is compassionate and supportive with me as I work to build strength and flexibility in my back and hip. I cannot say enough about how professional, kind, and personable everyone is at F.I.T.!!

Jim and the staff are awesome! I’m a baseball coach and was having some back issues due to throwing about 1000 batting practice pitches a week. Back is definitely better and Jim was the first Chiropractor that I’ve met that actually understands the biomechanics of throwing so his training is way above average!

For months, whenever I'd exercise I'd have frustrating knee pain that was causing me to never finish a workout. I was impressed with how Dr. Allison really took the time to understand my symptoms and put me on a plan to recovery. After our first appointment, not only was I relieved that I had someone dedicated to my recovery, but I noticed considerable results after that first session. Within a few weeks I was back to my regular amounts of exercise. What was of particular value to me was not only did my pain get resolved, but I had the knowledge and specific exercises to keep the injury from returning.

Dr. Aaron is great! I was originally referred to him for helping reduce my migraines and tension headaches after their frequency and intensity had spiked dramatically. Dr. Aaron developed a treatment plan which consisted of chiropractic care and soft tissue work, as well as a number of changes and exercises which I work on in my own time. Overall, working with Dr. Aaron has helped to reduce my number of migraines and tension headaches as well as lower their intensity. I would highly recommend Dr. Aaron!

The whole staff at F.I.T is friendly, welcoming, and professional. Bridgette is an extremely knowledgeable PT and has helped me tremendously in recovering from a discectomy. Michael is an amazing chiropractor with so much patience and positivity — it’s clear he’s very passionate about helping people and he really knows what he’s doing. You will be in great hands with anyone on the team at F.I.T. 100% recommend!

What is Blood Flow Restriction training and how could it benefit you?

Blood flow restriction (BFR) training is a method in which arterial blood flow is partially restricted resulting in a decreased oxygen supply for the affected muscles. Research indicates potential benefits of BFR training include increasing muscle mass, strength, and endurance all while exercising under a relatively lower resistance. By loading the muscles in an environment of decreased oxygen and increased pressure, the musculature is forced to adapt and improve. The possibilities for BFR training are very exciting and can carry over into many populations including post-op cases with weight bearing restrictions as well. Getting to train the muscle with low impact activities while using BFR is a great way to get ahead of the curve with your post-op recovery.

The bicep curl is a fantastic way to help address anterior shoulder stability. In fact, part in the bicep inserts directly into the labrum of the shoulder directly so training this muscle effectively is a great way to help address possible clunking or popping in the shoulder.

Push-ups: These are a fantastic exercises for developing anterior shoulder stability within the pectorals and anterior deltoid but also posterior stability within the triceps. It’s a functional plyometric exercise that your body will learn to love with time. Start with 10 push-ups a day and work up to 50 if you can!

Isometric Kettlebell Shoulder Press: This exercise is a fantastic way to activate your rotator cuff, posterior deltoid, and rhomboids. Far too often do we find ourselves in poor shoulder posture throughout our day with shoulders rounded and sagged forward. This exercise helps keep those shoulders pulled back and your posture in a more neutral position.

Barbell Overhead Press: This is one of the most functional exercises out there for shoulder stability in general. It does a great job of forcing the entire shoulder to work as a unit to accomplish this movement. The rotator cuff, deltoids, pectorals, lats, and tricep are all working in unison which is a great way to train your shoulder. If the movement is painful then go with lighter weight!

💥 Patellofemoral Pain 💥

Patellofemoral pain is a fancy name for pain coming from the joint created by your kneecap and femur. It can also be called “runner’s knee” and is a very common injury in athletes. Often times, it is due to underlying issues such as overactive quad muscles and weak glutes. One of the most effective interventions for this is increasing your glute strength. When you are able to engage muscles other than your quads, it takes the load off of the front of your knee.

These 3 exercises are great for glute activation and would be awesome warmups before participating in your sport or activity that gives you pain.

Band walks can be completed with an elastic band around the ankles. Keys are keeping your toes facing straight forward, and maintaining tension on the band the whole time.

For the step ups, the most important thing to remember is transferring your weight onto the heel of the foot that is on the step. When your weight is through the heel, the hips are engaged. The hamstring and glutes should be the main drivers of this activity, if you feel too much quad activity then shift your weight further onto the heel of the stance foot.
