There are no secrets to success.
If you move better, you'll feel better, enabling you to lead a more fulfilling life, on your own terms.
A strong clinician serves as a liaison for their patients, connecting them to the appropriate resources to navigate their rehabilitation. By providing the tools necessary, a clinician can support their patient as they learn to perform at their highest potential.
We feel that striving for optimal physical performance, not simply functioning without pain, is something each patient deserves. It is our responsibility to help everyone we work with best navigate the ultimate course they have in mind.

This month we’re reading The Passion Paradox: A Guide to Going All In, Finding Success, and Discovering the Benefits of an Unbalanced Life by Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness.
Following your passion is something we hear about as a goal in life. The truth is, following your passion can be exhausting. You can throw all your eggs in one basket and can take things too far, leading to burnout and unnecessary stress. That isn’t to say living a life of passion is bad either.
This book, written by the authors of the best-selling Peak Performance, is about finding the balance between living for those “breakthrough achievements” and ruining your life. Sure you might lose balance sometimes, but if you learn to channel and harness the power of your passion, you can have a rich and meaningful life and avoid destructive consequences. What comes to mind for us?...Sustainable Passion!
Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness have written another thought-provoking, concise, and quick read that we can digest through experiential stories and engaging examples. We especially like this book because you can apply it to anything in your life, be it “athletic, scientific, entrepreneurial, or artistic.” Highly recommended!
