What You Won't Get
During your rehabilitation. You won't get an exercise handout and be expected to properly activate and strengthen the correct muscle groups by yourself.
We won't give you 60 minutes of half unsupervised exercise therapy.
We won't leave you high and dry after your first session with little direction and no follow up to your recovery.
We won't let you leave our facility without an individualized treatment plan.
Ever Wonder Why You Have Pain Even After You've Tried To Treat It?
You've tried Rehabilitation therapies, body adjustments, and followed the at-home exercise handouts, yet the pain keeps coming back. We promise, the problem isn’t you.
Oftentimes, you experience pain because of improper movements. We hear stories all the time of "I hurt myself when I bent down" or "I went to reach for something and now my _____ hurts." The reason our bodies revert back to pain after a few months of physical therapy, is because we keep performing the same improper movement patterns that got us here in the first place.
Here at Pro10 we first calm your current pain symptoms, then we offer movement therapy techniques to retrain your body so the pain stops coming back. We are here to teach your body the movement mechanics it needs to stay out of pain. If by chance your body does not have the required range of motion to perform a movement, then we recommend a service appointment for manual therapy in order to gain the needed range of motion.
Massage spas only focus on relieving the symptom of your pain so next week you will need another massage. We want to completely get rid of your pain so we don't waste your time and money coming back for more sessions. For example, if you have low back pain, oftentimes, low back pain originates from tight muscles in your hips because of how those muscles originate from the hips and attach to the low back.
While working with professional and collegiate athletes, David was able to understand the secret to faster, long term healing and career longevity of avoiding future injuries. Through proper functional movement and exercise training, movement health was meant to be gained on and off the court.
Our health care system has failed us by not teaching us how to properly move such as how to walk, run, squat down, bend over, and jump. We decided to be part of the solution and not contribute to the problem.
We first identify where your pain is coming from through proper movement assessments and gait analysis. Our three step treatment protocol, first, utilizes medical massage to relieve the pain and muscle tension caused by poor posture, overuse of the muscle, or injury.
Once we have reduced the pain at the source, we then recommend our movement training course to fix posture and muscular imbalances in order to get you moving better. We know when your body moves better, you feel better.
After we have reduced your pain and relieved your symptoms, the focus is on integrating new habits your body needs in order for it to function optimally. One of the ways we achieve this is by introducing new movement patterns to your every day life.
By first understanding your body's movement habits, we can design an individualized exercise movement plan that ensures the right muscle groups are working at the right time. This will ultimately maximize how you feel and move more efficiently throughout your every day. This will also help in reducing any pain and prevent any risk of future injuries. We want to help you live a pain free life because you deserve it. We are here to serve YOU!

Our 3 Step Restoration-Treatment Protocol
How It All Started
Movement, sports and competition have been wired throughout my DNA since I was a kid. As a kid, I spent class time day dreaming of recess. As I got older, I spent a lot of my free time in sports. The hardest part was choosing just one, so I didn’t. Soccer, basketball, lacrosse, pole vaulting, wrestling, and ultimate frisbee are just a few that brought meaning to my life. Until, an injury grabbed hold of me and stole a big piece of my identity. I first experienced physical therapy in high school when I fractured my leg (followed by my twin bother besting me with breaking both of his legs). I saw first-hand how vital post-injury rehabilitation was in order to regain proper movement, strength and joint stability for performance and the every day.
By the end of high school, I was asked the age-old question “what do you want to be when you grow up”. What does someone who loves the outdoors and movement choose? Well, for me that meant pursuing a bachelor’s degree in exercise science. I had my fair share of exposure to athletic injuries from all my time in sports, and I jumped at the opportunity to be part of the solution. All it took was gaining a taste of functional anatomy & biomechanics (the science of movement) to understand this is exactly where I was supposed to be. I was fascinated with how biomechanics could be used to optimize movement patterns in order to improve sport-specific techniques.
As I learned more about how muscles supported the human body to improve performance and overall function, I knew the only thing left to do was to figure out how to incorporate this into a profession.
After college I was offered an opportunity to learn directly under the head strength and conditioning coach of the Boston Celtics. During my two-year stint, I watched how the players were coached and how recovering athletes were slowly integrated back into their sport. During my time, I mastered program design, coaching and proper movements while strengthening specific muscles to achieve a specific outcome. It showed me how individualized exercise plans were the pathway to injury prevention, rehabilitation, and better overall performance. I learned how adjusting movements could reduce and sometimes even eliminate the need for medication. This led me to get certified in Personal Training, Strength and Conditioning, and Corrective Exercise. There was one missing piece – how to provide injured athletes with manual therapies to recover faster & healthier.
Wanting to provide this hands-on approach to injury recovery, I went back to school to get my clinical massage license. Medical massage & personal training allows me to treat the underlying cause of pain and restore function to the human body to live a better quality of health.
No matter the severity, an injury needs proper rehab to function well without pain. We focus on function and posture for optimal muscle health. Think about it, a person in a slouched or slightly slouched position causes an inability to breathe efficiently. Slouching causes tight muscles in your ribs and chest (try it!) which ultimately leads to a breathing inefficiency. We breathe 12-16 times a minute. Now multiply that inefficiency by hours, days, and years. When breathing rate increases (to make up for the inefficiency) your heart rate increases. Overtime, a rapid heart rate leads to an increased stress response which can have a direct correlation with heart disease, hypertension, and many other issues.
Once you gain a proper diagnosis, it is important to understand the best way to treat it. If the injury involves muscles, then there is a 100% chance we can help to at least relax the muscles, bring blood flow to the area, and increase recovery through medical massage therapy. For example, if someone is diagnosed with tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome it is important to understand your treatment options. Surgery should never be your first thought or told to be your only option. Both of these diagnoses are muscle-related and shown they can be cured through medical massage therapy.
Why Pro10 Is Different
Pro10 carves out a profession of its own, using medical massage and exercise science to relieve pain. Our mission is to show the world that manual therapy deserves a seat at the table as a first line of defense for pain relief and rehabilitation. When it comes to muscles, we are experts. We have the time that most doctors don't have. It takes time to palpate and identify where the pain is coming from. Movement compensations form muscle imbalances that contribute to overall discomfort. With the proper movement assessments, we can effectively treat the muscle tissue and elicit change to alleviate your pain.
This is the start where we are able show the world there is a better alternative treatment to pain relief. With proper education to patients and providing consistent results, we are more than able to achieve a better way to healthier living.
We are committed to you, the soccer mom who doesn't get the time to take care of her body, the stay at home parent that is sore from constantly picking up the children all day, the corporate worker with body aches and mental stress from a long work week, the athlete trying to get back in shape, the recreational league tennis player who needs body maintenance to keep up with the physical demands of the sport, the post-operative surgery patient who needs medical massage or muscle retraining, the weekend warrior, or the everyday person trying to maintain their strength while looking for the occasional relief from muscle tension.
This is where we stand up to health care from over prescribing medications and begin proving that optimal health can be achieved through proper diet, customized exercise workouts, and the occasional manual therapy session for gaining the proper muscle and joint health.
Our Mission & Vision
To provide the best quality rehabilitative and wellness care through exercise training and medical massage to serve those looking to move better, feel better, and live better.
