Function Lab Rx
Creating Better Functioning Humans
Evidence based medicine and osteopathic principles form the foundation of our ‘hands on’ and functional movement approach to pain and performance.
ABOUT Function Lab Rx
At Function Lab Rx we take an anatomical and biomechanical approach to the treatment of common postural faults, acute injury, and the management of chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Our primary focus is your comfort, decreasing your pain experience and correcting the root cause of your presenting complaint.
We believe in patient education regarding their injury and empowerment to take an active role in one's own recovery - in the form of stretching, healthy eating, and regular exercise.
Osteopaths treat the body as one WHOLE functioning unit because we understand everything is connected. We work hard to reduce pain sensitivity while correcting the root cause of your dysfunction.
Movement requires muscles! A keen focus on treating muscular injuries and imbalances will have you moving freely again.
Mobility - the ability to move muscles and joints freely through their full range of motion. Increased mobility contributes significantly to our overall functional ability and quality of life.
Motion in as many ways as possible is key to lifelong physical and mental health. The more we move - the happier, healthier, and less prone to injury we are.
