Does symmetry really make you a better athlete?

We often have athletes come through our doors looking to achieve perfect alignment in their form, convinced that their asymmetries are what’s holding them back. While it’s true that asymmetries can lead to injury and chronic tightness, or be the culprit behind race day disappointment, the bottom line is, “perfect alignment” does not exist. The human body is naturally asymmetrical. The challenge is to work WITH an asymmetry, not against it.

In Pain? See a PT first.

In Pain? See a PT first.

No one wants to be in pain. So, when any kind of ache, tweak, mysterious twinge or more serious strain, chronic discomfort or injury occurs, your first instinct is to see a doctor. But heading to your primary care doctor or trying to get in to see an orthopedic specialist might not be the most efficient solution. Going to a physical therapist directly for musculoskeletal pain will save you both time and money – and the sooner you start treatment, the sooner you’ll feel better.
