Is Pain Affecting Your Ability to Work?
Sessions begin with a seated conversation, discussing the reason for treatment. Our Skilled Manual Sports Therapists expertly evaluate your body’s asymmetries and create a game plan to help manage your pain. Once expectations of a session are clearly defined, we work only with the muscles that are contributing to over-compensation.
- Excessive Stretching
- Popping or Twisting
- Unnecessary time spent in any one area
Effective! Progressive! Long-Lasting!
I went to David because my jaw was in pain and I did not know why. David is not only a very personable guy but is also extremely knowledgeable and tells you exactly what he is doing and why. The deep tissue work is not too painful and after a couple days of seeing him my jaw was completely better. Definitely would go back!
When I first met David (of Iler Method) I was training for the LA Marathon in 2004. At the time, I struggled with a skydiving related neck injury that effected my running. I remember him walking up to me and saying, “let me see if I can help.” Not only was he able to help with my neck issues, but with each Iler Method session, I learned so much about my body and the root cause of my injuries. Seems there is always something that comes up with a person as active as I am, and these Iler Method sessions kept small things from becoming big problems. Not just the therapy session but the homework and body maintenance plans as well. After each session, we would talk and create a plan for in-between sessions. What’s going on with my body, what are my upcoming events, and what can I do on my own, between sessions. In the past few years, my running has progressed into "Ultra Running." My needs have changed (along with my body) but, with the Iler Method, after a session, I feel like I know more about managing my body and what my next steps should be. In the last year with relatively few years in the sport, I was able to complete 2 of the world's toughest ultra marathons. At the age of 54, I completed the Badwater 135 and the Tahoe 200 with less than 8 weeks in between races. No other massage method or modality has been able to do for me what the Iler Method has done.
I am a strong believer in the Iler Method. David is an intuitive and intelligent body worker and I always leave feeling aligned and set up for success in my fitness endeavors. Highly recommend!
