Mind/body coordination is an integral part of function allowing for greater body control, balance and stabilization. Through patient education and training we demonstrate how poor movement can cause muscular/skeletal dysfunction. We continually remind patients to think about their movements before they perform them. Then we demonstrate correct movement, and reinforce it with repetition and exercise.

Correct body movement is easily practiced by incorporating visualization, focus and concentration on the body's center of mass. It is possible to strengthen muscle tissue and bone without ever mentally tying it to function. In doing so, you gain no proprioceptive improvement or body movement coordination. That is why we place such emphasis on teaching correct movement even as we work to strengthen muscles.
