The methods we employ for Muscle balancing are second to none. This type of therapy is how we deliver even more Holistic work at Mountian Movement. In order for your injury to get better, we have to address the muscles, tendons and fascia of the body. They work with the joints, nerves and brain to create coordinated dynamic motion in the hobbies and sports we love.
When we combine these techniques with research based Chiropractic methods we get results in half the time.

The Day Method

Alongside traditional Chiropractic, Dr. Michael Day createda proprietary method that he found got patients better, fasterat his practice in Southern California.

The Day Method combines all of the past methods of Traditional Chiropractic with a blend of numerous disciplines:  But most importantly it’s GENTLE.

The key to the day method is that is “Graded” to the needs and comfort level of the patient.  Dr. Day met enough patients over his 8 years in practice to realize not all patients are candidatesfor the audible noise adjustment, and adapted his careto fit all patient needs.

Those who are smaller in stature or who have just been through an acute injury would receive a much softer method of mobilizing the Nerve-Joint-Muscle communication.  As well, infants and pregnant mothers recieve an entirely different approach than an everyday patients.
