  • “Progress to Tolerance” – What is Tolerance?
    Tolerance Tolerance is very subjective. Our suggestion is that when anyone instructs you to “exercise, progress, weight bear, etc. to tolerance”, that you ask for clarification on that person’s definition of tolerance.

Brian and Andy helped me overcome a herniated disc that had me in pain 24/7. Within a few visits I was back to working out at full capacity without pain. Brian also helped me improve my run stride and movement of my posterior chain in the process. I'm stronger, faster, and healthier now having worked with them than I was before the injury.

I have been utilizing the services of Balanced Movement Studio for years. I cannot say enough about Elizabeth and Brian. I am primarily a cyclist, road and mountain bike. I have had numerous injuries, particularly in the hip area. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable in structuring exercise programs that target the hip musculature, which has helped me to avoid injury. She is an adept educator, and helps you maintain proper form. There are times when I do push myself too hard, and Brian is there for physical therapy. His knowledge of anatomy and physiology, coupled with his personality, make him an excellent practitioner. He is patient and he listens to your concerns in order to get to the root of your issue. From there, he uniquely helps you to understand the issue and works with you to modify movement patterns to alleviate pain, and correct the problem. No matter your age, your activity level, or what type of injury you may have, BMS is an excellent resource.
