For about two years now I’ve been involved in an exercise system called Z-Health. I’ve suffered from various chronic pain issues and the methods employed by Z-Health have helped me reduce my pain and regain function to a tremendous degree–far more than any other treatment modality I’ve ever experienced. (I’d like to give great thanks to Dr. Eric Cobb, creator and founder of Z-Health.) I get to share this unique system with clients every day. As a Z-Health Certified Movement Re-Education Specialist, I get to help them find their way out of pain and dysfunction. For clients in pain, Z-Health R-Phase and I-Phase are key to calming the nervous system and re-establishing good, pain-free movement. But Z-Health isn’t only about pain relief. It’s also about performance enhancement.
On that theme, I’d like to show you a couple of articles (here, here) and a video on a 14-year-old Seattle area sprinter named Hannah Cunliffe. She’s a nationally ranked in both the 100m and 200m events for her age group and she’s able to hold her own against college sprinters. She hopes to compete in the 2012 Olympics. She’s also one of Dr. Cobb’s clients. For someone like Hannah, Z-Health S-Phase offers powerful visual and sport mechanics drills. Sprinting, agility, acceleration, decelerating and jumping are all part of S-Phase.
So the big message here is that Z-Health isn’t just about addressing pain. It’s about achieving the highest level of performance you want.
Here are a couple of videos:
