C&FD therapists use Total Motion Release (TMR)

Posted by: childandfamily

Over the last few years, 3 members of our pediatric therapy team have completed training in Total Motion Release® (TMR).

Occupational Therapy:
Marion Wilm, OTR/L @ Pineville office

Physical Therapy:
Erin Harkins, DPT @ Pineville office
Leslie Cordero, DPT @ Midtown office 

Per the website, www.totalmotionrelease.com, TMR brings the body back into balance in a slightly different way than what is traditionally thought of for therapy. This approach was developed around 2002 by Physical Therapist, Tom Dalonzo-Baker, MPT and is based on 5 principles and formats. TMR identifies fascial restrictions within the body.  Often times range of motion restrictions are not strictly due to muscular tightness.  By addressing the fascial restrictions, new range of motion may be freed, allowing for improved alignment for increased functional abilities.

To learn more about this approach, call us to schedule a free Intake appointment with one of these therapists.
