Shoulder Pain to Handstand in 2 Visits!

When I met Dr. Justin at a presentation he was giving at Brawlhouse in Mountainside, I knew right away that this was a guy I wanted to work with and continue to learn from. A year prior to us meeting, I had injured my shoulder practicing hand balancing. I stubbornly self-rehabbed, and although i regained […]

I Think I’m Going to Get an MRI…

The famous last words of so many clients and patients that I encounter every day. As you can probably tell by the tone, this may not always be the best course of action. Before I get into it however, let me preface this by saying that I am in no way, shape, or form bashing […]

Why Your Dentist Should Not Be the Only One Doing Yearly Check-Ups…

This is an excerpt from an article I wrote almost 5 years ago. Amazing how time flies. Luckily, the message has not changed. We all do and say some regrettable things. This is not regrettable as I stand by this message from my younger self. ————– Of what I have read so far, the most […]

The House Without a Foundation…

One of my favorite analogies that I use with patients is the house without a solid foundation.   Often times, we attempt to add, renovate, and invent new exercises or sports all without having a stable base or foundation.   Sometimes it’s your high -level baseball player with a core the equivalent of a wet […]

Focus on ‘How’ NOT ‘What’

One inevitable conversation I have with almost every patient starts like this, “What do you think of _____?” The blank is filled in by every exercise, nutrition, and therapy technique ever created.   The easy answer is, “It depends.”   You see, each individual may benefit from something different. I know many people who swear […]
