YOU CAN GET BETTER
WE CAN HELP

The Motiva Approach is specifically designed for people with difficult pain, injuries, and
physical health conditions. It achieves results even in persistent or severe conditions
because it addresses every contributing and affected system in the body in a holistic
and complete process. This requires specialized training and expertise. This is what
we do at Motiva.


DO YOU HAVE ANY OF THE
FOLLOWING QUESTIONS?

CALM PAIN & INFLAMMATION


Pain is a normal consequence of injury, disease, and degenerative change. Pain can
be acute and inflammatory. It can also be the result of a persistent disruption of the
body’s pain-reporting system. The best way to address pain depends greatly on the
type and cause. Your Motiva team has specialized training specifically in pain science
and can help you navigate this to conquer acute or persistent pain.

restore joint &
muscle mechanics


Not just overall flexibility but also the mobility vs stability of each individual joint, body part, and system of body parts can greatly affect your function and how susceptible the body is to pain and injury. Injuries and other conditions can lead to lasting hyper- mobilities, which can then lead to stiff joints above and below the affected area and is often also the cause of stiff muscles. This is why just addressing stiff muscles does not cure the problem! This is also why just ‘adjusting’ the neck and back repeatedly does not lead to lasting relief. Both too much and too little flexibility, not just in the body as a whole, but also in each specific joint, can lead to lasting or recurrent pain and injury. A detailed biomechanical examination is part of the Motiva process to identify what needs to be strengthened and what needs to be stretched to truly get you better.

RESTORE
neuromuscular CONTROL


Neuromuscular control refers to the body’s finely-tuned control of each individual muscle and thus how each joint, bone, body part, and then whole body as a system moves in synchrony. Much more than just strength and speed, it’s neuromuscular control that separates elite athletes from weekend warriors in sport, or experts from novices in other work and life skills. Pain and injury disrupt the body’s neuromuscular control and can prevent full recovery and optimized function in sport, work, and life, without specialized intervention. The Motiva recovery process focuses hard on restoring and optimizing neuromuscular control so that, in addition to resolving your pain and mobility, you get back to optimal physical function for work, sport, and living life to the fullest.
