Optimum Performance was started to provide the highest level of conservative care for individuals with joint and muscle pain. We separate ourselves by understanding human movement and by understanding how to identify subtle imbalances during movement.
It is our belief that most muscle and joint pain is caused by muscular imbalances or asymmetries within our body. Correcting these imbalances requires an indepth understanding of joint motion , muscle function, and the neurology which controls the musculo-skeletal system.Understanding this is what seperates us from other chiropractic and physical therapy clinics.
This belief has made Optimum Performance the office of choice for many of the coaches, trainers, and physicians in the Fort Wayne area.
