Looking beyond pain, treating dysfunction
Tri-Planar Movement Therapies is a unique approach to achieving health and fitness with compassionate and comprehensive care, one person at a time.
Our physical therapy uses the Postural Restoration approach and Pilates, two effective modalities that train your body to function at its best in multiple planes of movement. This training occurs at the joint level, as well as holistically, to help the entire body function cohesively.
What is Tri-Planar Movement
We move and function simultaneously in all three cardinal planes: Sagittal (right/left), Frontal (front/back), and Transverse (up/down), as well as a multitude of other planes to slide, glide and swing.
With movement, each joint and their surrounding muscles must dynamically function in all these planes for proper performance.
Through the use of specialized corrective exercises that address postural patterns and muscle imbalances, neuro-motor balance is achieved between the left and right sides of the body.
Faulty posture and movement patterns are often the underlying cause of chronic pain or injury. With proper positioning, the joints and muscles of your body can work in a more efficient manner with the least amount of strain.
The movement at the core of Pilates helps you safely develop a healthy body regardless of your current level of fitness. The principles of core stabilization and motor control are the same principles that form the basis for most orthopaedic rehabilitation and therapy.
Considering the three predominant planes of motion, if one plane is overworked through occupational or fitness demands, our body can get 'stuck'. 'Stuck' meaning that it is hard to move in the direction opposite of that position without strain. This occurs at the additional expense of not being able to move well in other planes of motion.
Each 60-minute session will focus on an assessment and individualized plan to maximize your physical potential in all these planes. By addressing faulty posture and movement patterns that are often the underlying cause of pain or dysfunction, symptoms will resolve. TPMT utilizes touch, technique and teaching to maximize treatment results. This will accelerate your healing time, require fewer sessions, as well as assure more complete recovery following injury.

I started getting neck pain roughly four months before going to see Lisa. The neck pain was starting to completely prohibit me from doing simple daily things - checking my blind spot, turning to see my children, carrying different things, and even sleeping was very difficult. I also had hip pain after I had my third child that was still very painful a year after delivering her, it was so painful I could not sit crisscross on the ground to play with my children, many movements / workouts were hard or not possible because of the pain. Finally I have been in and out of doctors offices for constipation for close to 20 years. When I went to see Lisa it had gotten so bad I was barely having one bowl movement every week and was starting to require enemas regularly. I was miserable!
Everything changed when I saw Lisa for what I thought would just be help with my hip. What turned into help for my hip has resulted in getting pain free in my hip and neck - if pain comes back I know what to do to manage it and help it go away again. And the most life changing thing, that I had zero hopes of fixing, is my constipation. I have had a bowl movement nearly every day for an entire month!!! This is crazy, something I never even thought would be possible for me. Lisa and the PRI way have quite literally changed my life. I am so incredibly thankful and recommend everyone see Lisa!!!
