Be more resilient, strong, and capable. Understand that your body is a resilient tool when it's exposed to the right environment, in the right way.

Range of Motion Optimization

Decreased range of movement in a joint can lead to long-term problems if not properly addressed. Dr. Rocha combines nervous system training with range of motion and soft tissue techniques to regain a full and active range of motion.

Pain Rehabilitation &
Fear Avoidance

Chronic pain often leads to a heightened nervous system response to stimulus and a lower threshold for movement. Dr. Rocha's approach redevelops how the nervous system reacts with exercises that calm and strengthen.

Strength-based Rehabilitation

With Dr. Rocha’s strength-based rehab, 90 percent of the treatment consists of strength-based movements designed to help each client regain a healthy relationship with their environment while using painless movement under load.
