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!

The rotator cuff is an important group of muscles that help move and stabilize your shoulder during any activity moving your arm from swingling a golf club, to lifting weights, to opening a door. They are prone to degenerative changes over time and are susceptible to injury in throwing or contact sports.

A lot of times rotator cuff tears can be treated conservatively, but in the case that surgery is needed, we know how to get you through the steps to get you back. We consider many different factors to influence your rehab, from size / thickness of the tear, the quality of the soft tissue which is determined by the surgeon during surgery, and the activity you want to get back to doing. We work closely with your surgeon to come up with the plan that fits best for you to ensure the best chance of success! 

In general, in the early phases rehab is mostly passive to improve range of motion, decrease pain, and decrease any muscle guarding. The above factors we discussed will dictate how long the early passive phase lasts before starting light strengthening so the repair site isn’t stressed beyond what it can tolerate. Light strengthening is progressed to more functional or sport specific strengthening once healing timelines have been met, there are no movement impairments, and objective strength measures are satisfactory. Whether that is being able to lift a box overhead, or start throwing a baseball or lifting weights again, we take everything into consideration to develop a plan that will work best for you!

Experiencing knee pain while running? Often anterior knee pain can be the result of poor engagement of your quads. Shown is a great simple exercise to wake up those sleepy quads. Notice she is showing full extension of the knee with a band placed at the back of the knee for resistance. Performing this exercise on a single leg for balance is a good way to increase difficulty and to challenge the body (and brain!)

Glutes fell asleep on you? Well it’s time to wake them up with these drills! 💥💥

Banded Bridges w/ External Rotation
Place a resistance band above the knees. Lay down on the floor and bring your feet about a foot away from your glutes. Begin by driving through the feet and bridging up. At the top of the bridge, open up your knees and then slowly close to get an extra burn in those glutes. Lower and repeat for 3 sets by 10 reps.

Lay on your side. Place a resistance band above your knees. Stack your legs and make sure your feet and hips stay together. Open at your knees (like a clam) about 8-12 inches and then slowly close. Repeat for 10 reps, then do the other side.
