Dr. Zimmerman uses a diverse set of assessment & treatment methods in addressing each individual patients' main complaints. While there may be a spinal manipulation component, he lends greater focus to addressing the "why's" of a patient's presenting complaints through postural restoration institute and neurokinetic therapy protocols. He also regularly incorporates active release and graston techniques, both of which are innovative, movement-based therapies aimed at treating scar tissue buildup within the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. Prior injury, overuse, or having poor body mechanics allows this scar tissue to both shorten and weaken muscles. It can also cause peripheral nerve irritation and pain, as well as alterations in fundamental movement patterns needing correction by Dr. Z. These modalities, along with Rocktape kinesiology taping, have been excellent active care methods employed not only with our patients, but in nearly every collegiate, professional and Olympic-caliber training room across the country.
In an effort to stem the tide of sedentary workplace-related aches and pains, we at MBM offer on site consultation to help employers improve the way workstations are configured, as well as the way their employees use their bodies at work. We find that even the smallest of changes in posture, or by incorporating quick workplace stretch and exercise drills, leads to an exponential increase in efficiency, production, and even positive thinking. In addition to our consultancy service, we also provide treatment sessions in 15 and 30 minute increments for those interested in receiving care while at the office.
