A Message From Cynthia Weiss, Owner & Founder of Wellness Rehabilitation Inc.

Fluidity and ease of movement is a result of using your muscles in an efficient and appropriate way. When you don’t move correctly, this pulls you out of alignment causing injury. The body wants to stay upright, be symmetrical, and be in harmony. Therefore, it will do whatever it needs to do to maintain homeostasis. This is why the core, using your muscles appropriately, and alignment are so important.

Let’s say you can do an exercise to one side but not as well to the other, you have created a muscle imbalance. The body will then go to the side of least resistance, meaning you will continue to strengthen the strong side, which will continue to weaken the opposite side of the body. If turning to the left is much harder than the right, you are probably not efficiently recruiting the correct muscles and the movement becomes stilted because you are asking other muscles to do what they are not meant to do. As this continues, you are setting yourself up for injury. Repeat this over and again, you create weaknesses until the body says “enough”.

How do you figure out where the weakness lies? If you are aware of your body and how it feels as you move in space, you may be able to figure out what is not working well. Even if you are aware of your body, it can be difficult to know if you are holding yourself appropriately because you move the same way each time and that becomes natural to you even though it may be inaccurate. This is where having trained eyes is beneficial. We can pick up the detrimental movements and then get you to change your patterns by asking you to move in ways that your body will remember without you overcorrecting. The new movement patterns will then become natural to you, preventing further injury or recurrence of injury.

Getting back to ”how do you undo some of your habits that are creating your issues”? Seeing an expert movement specialist. This is what our Physical Therapists are trained in. You need a separate pair of eyes to see where the root cause of the injury is coming from and how your movements are being affected by the injury or causing the injury. This is what movement reeducation is all about and what we specialize in at Wellness Rehabilitation Inc.

At Wellness Rehabilitation Inc. we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want to Listen to Your Story

Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with lots of people with pain and stiffness, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY Your Pain Started

Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, use ice and heat, or take pain medicine.

Sometimes, those things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every person’s cause of pain and stiffness is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at Wellness Rehabilitation Inc. is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free Discovery Calls. (Yes! That means it is ON US!)

Our Discovery Calls are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery calls you’ll find out what may be wrong and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

…Get back to exercising without fear of pain and stiffness coming back
…Return to your fully functional and mobile lifestyle
…Have the confidence the pain will not return or that you know how to treat it

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active  lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

Want to know more about our availability and costs before making any commitment to coming in?

Here’s to getting you back to the life you deserve where you can be fully functional again.

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Wellness Rehab in Kensington...

Lois P. Highly recommends Wellness Rehab to anyone who needs treatment!

“Cynthia Weiss has been my physical therapist since 1993. I have a chronic, intermittent pain syndrome in my feet and since then have been diagnosed with osteopenia and scoliosis. Cynthia has helped me through my flare-ups to stay mobile and work through the pain to keep my body functional. She gives me hands-on manipulation of my joints and soft tissue. She uses release techniques to treat my symptoms. We also use therapeutic Pilates on mat and equipment. For all the years I have known Cynthia, she has been a skilled professional. She takes continuing education courses and gets certified in new techniques. She is always looking for ways to enhance her knowledge of the latest techniques in her profession. Cynthia’s greatest asset is her compassion and empathy in addition to her level of professionalism. She is flexible with scheduling and always has the ability to change a program or technique to suit a patient’s symptoms. I have no reluctance when I recommend her to anyone I know who needs treatment. I can only give her my highest praise! ”

Dan F. Overcame his injuries & recommends Wellness Rehab without hesitation!

“Cynthia Weiss is the physical therapist at Wellness Rehabilitation, and she is highly professional and a true expert with a vast knowledge in bio-mechanics and other specialties as listed on her website. I am a research physician, so I have pretty high standards when it comes to considering which provider should be helping to heal my injuries. I have seen Cynthia at various times over the past 20 years. People go to see a PT for a specific reason, like a sports injury, yet we know that in most cases the injury is merely a late-stage symptom of a more generalized imbalance in the body. If you are seeking a practitioner that deeply analyzes and treats these underlying imbalances that serve as the root cause of the current injury and your future predisposition to injury, then Cynthia is the practitioner that you should consider as she takes a holistic approach in the care she provides, in particular: a strong focus and success with therapeutic interventions; diagnosis of muscle imbalances; and prescription of individualized exercises to promote healing and prevent future injury. I recommend Wellness Rehabilitation, Inc without reservation, as Cynthia will be truly committed to the improvement of your condition.”

Peter N. overcame his constant back pain and highly recommends Wellness Rehab for treatment!

“After years of back problems, I herniated a disc in my lower back why trying to strengthen my back at the gym – oh the irony! I had a near-constant pain from my hip to my ankle and couldn’t sleep through the night. I went to Cynthia, who after an assessment said she was confident I could get back to being active and pain free. After a few months of working with her, she was right! I was back to cycling 25+ miles and moving without pain. Cynthia has an uncanny ability to see where you’re out of alignment, and which muscles you are and are not using. We discovered that I’d been over using some muscles to compensate for weaker muscles, which was leading to some of my long-term back issues. She helped me learn now to get more in balance and use the correct muscles to stand, sit, walk, lift, etc. Working with Cynthia is unlike any “PT” I’ve had in the past. She has an extremely deep knowledge of how the body works and moves and she shares that knowledge with her clients. What I’ve learned from her about my body is just as valuable as the strength I’ve gained from her exercises. I felt she was truly committed to helping me get better, and she has the skills to make it happen. I can’t recommend her highly enough!”
