 TAM Philosophy:



 Actively Involved Clients   At TAM, we take a pro-active approach. Our goal is to get each client actively involved with his / her care. We do this by teaching our clients self-management of their pain / injury, instead of fostering a dependant environment.

  From day one our goal is to identify all aggravating positions or activities as quickly as possible. We work together to identify movements or positions that decrease or abolish pain. Then, by decreasing or eliminating irritating factors while performing movements that alleviate the pain, we stop working against our body' very efficient healing mechanism. Each client's program is tailored to their individual problem.

  For example, the majority of injuries dealing with the spine, occur not because of trauma, but due to every day wear and tear. Healing of these injuries is actually quite simple. Damaged tissue needs to be slowly loaded (stressed) as it heals to form a strong repair. Problems arise when we unknowingly continue to load the healing tissue excessively and irritate and slow that process down. We do this by resuming the very positions that broke us down and caused the original injury. Examples are prolonged sitting, repetitive bending, or any sustained position.

 Individual Based Programs   Another way we decrease the body's healing mechanism is by not stressing the healing tissue enough. Usually, after the acute stage of an injury has passed (3-7 days), rest actually becomes a hindrance rather then helping the healing process. As previously stated, injuries need controlled stress to form a controlled repair. So, by "babying" our injury, the damaged tissue can take much longer to heal. In addition, by not progressively loading the healing tissue, the repair is weak and vulnerable to re-injury.

  This means resuming previous activities as soon as possible in a gradual manner and letting your pain be your guide. Total abolition of normal activities in favor of rest and "taking it easy" are detrimental.

If you have further question or are tired of chronic pain, feel free to contact us via Email or by phone at 808-877-8717.
