Motor Control Therapy

Unleashing Your Body's Potential: The Power of Motor Control Therapy

Traditional physical therapy often centers on isolated exercises and treatments that target specific muscles or injuries. While this approach can provide short-term relief and localized improvements, it falls short in addressing the underlying issues that contribute to movement impairments and chronic pain. It fails to address the overall movement patterns, coordination, and neuromuscular control needed for functional activities.

But at Roots Integrative Therapies, we believe that true healing and optimal performance stem from mastering motor control. Our Motor Control Therapy takes a holistic approach to movement rehabilitation and performance enhancement. It recognizes that movement is a complex interplay of muscles, joints, and the nervous system working in harmony. By focusing on training muscle memory and movement patterns, Motor Control Therapy addresses the root causes of dysfunction and empowers individuals to regain optimal movement control.

On this page, we will further explore why Motor Control Therapy surpasses traditional physical therapy and how it can unlock your body's full potential.

The Advantages of Motor Control Therapy:

Motor Control Therapy offers several advantages over traditional physical therapy, including:

  1. Comprehensive and holistic approach to movement rehabilitation.

  2. Focus on muscle memory training and movement efficiency.

  3. Addressing the underlying causes of movement impairments, rather than just symptoms.

  4. Enhanced body awareness and coordination.

  5. Improved functional movement for daily activities and sports performance.

  6. Reduced risk of future injuries through improved movement control.

  7. Long-term benefits and sustainable improvements.

A Sample of Techniques You Can Expect:

Restorative and Breathing Exercises

Motor Control Therapy encompasses a range of exercises tailored to restore and enhance movement control. Restorative exercises aim to address muscle imbalances, improve joint stability, and promote proper alignment. These exercises often incorporate breathing techniques that help regulate the nervous system, enhance body awareness, and optimize movement efficiency.

Developmental Patterning Exercises

Developmental patterning exercises draw inspiration from the natural progression of movement seen in infancy and childhood. By revisiting and refining these fundamental movement patterns, Motor Control Therapy helps rewire the brain-body connection and reestablish proper movement sequencing. This approach is particularly effective in improving coordination, stability, and functional movement.

Functional Movement Exercises

Functional movement exercises form a vital component of Motor Control Therapy. These exercises replicate real-life activities and challenge the body to perform coordinated movements across multiple joints and muscle groups. By training the body in functional contexts, individuals can regain efficient movement patterns and enhance their performance in daily activities, sports, or work-related tasks.
