About The Posture Recovery Program
Slouching spines, rounding shoulders, and growing neck humps. It only takes one unflattering photo for us to realize that our posture is in decline. We thought we were striking a strong and confident pose, but our body language was telling a different story.
Making meaningful changes to our posture can be difficult. There are endless gadgets and exercises online that give us hope, but it’s hard to know which options will be effective, appropriate, and safe for our bodies.
The Posture Recovery Program strives to achieve better outcomes for those looking to make lasting improvements in their posture and present a better version of themselves to the world. Sessions include..
Comprehensive Assessment: Identifying and prioritizing areas of the body that limit desired postures due to stiffness or weakness.
Manual Therapy / Intramuscular Stimulation: Mobilization of the spine and lengthening of shortened muscles to improve ease of movement into desired postures.
Exercise Prescription: Specific exercises tailored to the needs of each body. Learn how to perform the movements correctly during the session, then access the program online to practice at home.
Education: Realistic daily strategies to employ to ensure progress and prevent postural decline as we age.
Our Posture Recovery Program Team
Jeff graduated from the physiotherapy program at McMaster University in 2012. He brings a wealth of knowledge to the team at Avita, having worked with a wide variety of patients from professional athletes to weekend enthusiasts and heavy-duty mechanics to yoga instructors. These experiences have helped him develop a collaborative and results-oriented approach to care that tailors to the specific needs of each patient.
Jeff is a Certified Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation Practitioner (CGMIS), and has obtained certifications in advanced manual therapy, soft tissue release, and chronic pain management. Rather than treating your symptoms, he works to identify the root cause of the issue and create a lasting change in the way your body functions.
Jeff developed the Posture Recovery Program at Avita for those looking to make meaningful changes to their posture. The program combines manual therapies, dry needling, and supervised exercise to help restore mobility of the spine and strength of postural muscles.
Jeff is a former university football player. During his time with the team, he sustained two significant injuries that required surgery. He understands the patient’s perspective in the rehabilitative process and knows the impact that a caring and diligent therapist can have on their recovery. He strives to provide the same level of care that he received to his patients at Avita.
Outside the clinic you may find Jeff scaling a mountain, strolling the shoreline, shopping for coffee beans, or sampling a craft beer.
