Root Causes & Faster, Longer Lasting Results
Most injuries develop over a period of many years. With each activity or training season that passes without proper cool-down and stretching, with every tweak and strain, our bodies begin to incorporate into normal movement new compensation patterns to avoid pain. These abnormal patterns accumulate over time, leading to poor movement mechanics and increased stress on joints, muscles, and other soft tissues—known as Joint Movement Dysfunction (JMD)—which is the root cause of the injury. In order to effectively resolve these injuries, Joint Movement Dysfunction (JMD) must be corrected and this requires a very thoughtful and complex approach. JMD is comprised of three primary components: 1) tight, overly strong muscles, 2) long, overly weak muscles, and 3) poor movement coordination due to decreased proprioception. Our proprietary TRIFACTIVE Method™ combines the three most effective therapies to address each of these components of JMD, and we apply them in every client visit to provide routinely faster and longer lasting results.
Why All Three Therapies Every Visit?
If we look at the typical treatment options currently available for sports injury care (chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy), we find that each has some benefits along with a number of limitations. Each therapeutic approach alone is only one-third of the solution necessary to resolve the injury long-term. At TRIFACTIVE® our focus is getting clients back to doing what they love pain free and as quickly as possible. Because our approach is so effective, we are able to complete treatment in a much shorter timeframe than our competitors, such as physical therapy or chiropractic clinics by simultaneously addressing all three components of JMD.
Solely engaging in physical therapy is typically a slower and less permanent route to recovery. Because traditional PT primarily addresses your condition from the standpoint of strengthening weak muscles, the necessary movement coordination that comes from improving proprioception (your subconscious awareness of body position), as well as increasing range-of-motion in restricted joints is commonly missed. We don't leave this to chance by putting the burden on you to figure out how to coordinate and compliment your physical therapy with treatments by other providers. Instead, we ensure your success by integrating all necessary therapies into each TRIFACTIVE® treatment session for you—speeding your progress by enhancing your body awareness, improving your range-of-motion, and strengthening your core stability system.

We also do not accept the ill-defined concept of subluxation—the traditional chiropractic root cause of all pain and disease. Subluxation has become such a fractured, unwieldy, catch-all concept as to be essentially useless as a practical underpinning for improving treatment of sports injuries and pain.Learn more
At TRIFACTIVE® we focus on getting people back to doing what they love pain free as quickly and completely as possible. We regularly have shorter treatment plans than other clinics, such as Physical Therapy Only clinics, because we simultaneously address all three areas that are involved in causing pain and discomfort, which is necessary to achieve optimal results.
