Physio Remedy (PR) is a clinical weightlifting facility dedicated to understanding the biomechanical and neuromotor basis of human performance and injury risk. The philosophy behind Dr. Skinner’s approach is founded in a biopsychosocial model of care. This evidence-based model appreciates the amazing interconnection between biology, psychology, and socio-environmental factors that contribute to injury and well-being. More simply stated, what makes us unique individuals should be appreciated alongside our pain, injuries or athletic performance.
My treatment focuses on addressing three main concepts:
- Diagnose the problem/pathology. Here we discover the source of the pain/limitation. This is the “Bio” piece of the puzzle.
- Get some context to see how the nervous system is involved! Current evidence clearly demonstrates a need to treat the whole person and not just a specific tissue! Many athletes and high achievers use exercise as a tool for mental health. When pain and injury interfere, stress often feels less manageable. One of the highest priorities for rehabilitation is to find a way to train, to manage this stress, as a part of the journey! Simply stated, you are much more than your spine or limbs and your treatment should reflect this! This is the “PsychoSocial” piece!
- Provide a high-quality rehabilitation program that is a dynamic, human-focused strategy that addresses multiple dimensions! Dr. Skinner’s experience as a clinician and strength and conditioning coach allows him to appreciate the wide spectrum between injury and competition. Training schedules, competitions, work stress and social support are just a few examples of factors that play a role in injury and recovery for athletes.
