A new approach in health and fitness aimed at the management of chronic conditions and movement dysfunction officially arrives in Maine

In a continued effort to offer clients the latest in cutting-edge comprehensive treatment, Back Cove Personal Fitness in Portland, ME has been newly credentialed in an innovative approach called Postural Restoration. The Fitness Rehab specialists at Back Cove Personal Fitness utilize this intervention in their exercise programming, which has proven effective at reducing chronic muscle tension and unresolved discomfort, including degenerative joint issues and low back pain, which can limit someone's ability to maintain an active lifestyle and the ability to exercise.

After spending the last decade working as a corrective exercise specialist, Jeff Eckhouse says “Postural Restoration offers so much more value and insight than any other approach I’ve encountered. It’s so exciting to see our clients get such immediate results.” The analysis of a client’s movement quality incorporates a multi-systems approach, not often employed in traditional fitness, therapy or medical settings. “We take into consideration the natural asymmetry within the body and aim to identify the root cause of an issue” explains Michael Mullin. A recent 2015 Men’s Health Magazine article written by Trevor Thieme, explored the merits of the Postural Restoration system and quotes Postural Restoration founder, Ron Hruska as saying “everything from orthopedic ailments to cardiopulmonary diseases can have roots in posture and breathing”

The team of Jeff Eckhouse, Michael Mullin and Jon Allen, have nearly 60 years of combined experience, and they use Fitness Rehab to fill the gap between Physical Therapy and Personal Training. By addressing mobility and stability concerns, breathing mechanics and movement patterning issues, the total body approach they utilize aims to provide clients with the tools to be successful in rehab and exercise for the long term.

The team is available to share free educational information with local health professionals on this innovative approach, which can supplement their patient's care by utilizing a more holistic perspective on fitness and wellness as a way to regain a pain-free active lifestyle. Mullin and Eckhouse will also be offering a free lecture on Thursday, April 28 at 5:30pm, designed to demonstrate the efficacy and intricacies of their specialty.
