Active Release Technique® - Ironman® Provider Network

ART is a state of the art soft tissue system/movement based myofascial release technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

  • Separates and breaks down collagen cross-links, and splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers
  • Increases skin temperature
  • Facilitates reflex changes in the chronic muscle holding pattern
  • Alters spinal reflux activity (facilitated segment)
  • Increases the rate and amount of blood flow to and from the area
  • Increases cellular activity in the region, including fibroblasts and mast cells
  • Increases histamine response secondary to mast cell activity

Chiropractic Care | OTZ Tension Adjustment

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Erik Shimane has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Cranial Adjusting Turner Style (C.A.T.S.)

C.A.T.S.  (Cranial Adjusting Turner Style) is a scientifically proven, neurologically-based and subluxation-specific cranial adjusting technique. It produces very dramatic results on physical, neurological and mental conditions, many of which were previously thought of as incurable. It is basic chiropractic philosophy: when a cranial bone is out of place, it causes neurological dysfunction; put it back into place and restore that function. Dr. Erik Shimane has completed Level 1 & 2. 

Active Isolated Stretching

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the methods of stretching most used by today's athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity. The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body's natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.

Kinesio® Taping Technique

kinesiotape

Kinesio® Taping is the definitive rehabilitative taping method within the international medical community. This easy-to-learn technique is not only economical, but also reimbursable through many insurance carriers. 

Kinesio® Tex Tape is completely latex free and made from the highest quality materials meaning it can be used by patients of every age and condition for 3-5 days per application. 

Kinesio® Tex Tape has the ability to: 
•    Re-educate the neuromuscular system
•    Reduce pain
•    Enhance performance
•    Prevent injury
•    Promote good circulation and healing

RockTape® Doc - Medical Professional

rocktape.png

Dr. Erik Shimane is a Certified FMT RockTape Medical Professional & Retailer.

Functional Movement Technique presents a revolutionary way of thinking about how we move and how we injure. They integrate innovative mobility and stability strategies, along with a movement-based; practical kinesiology taping framework – to deliver RESULTS.

rocktape-blades-certified

The FMT Series are based on the following concepts:

  • Movement Pyramid: Movement screening and re-screening as the basis for evaluating the quality of human movement before and after the techniques administered
  • Evidence Informed: Courses are built around the available scientific literature and clinical expertise of our instructors and certified healthcare and fitness professionals.
  • Focus on Fascia: FMT has a longitudinal muscle chain approach to understanding movement dysfunction and correction

FMT Blades

FMT Blades introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes.

The FMT Blades certification will review screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to improve patient treatment. The anatomy, physiology and MOST IMPORTANTLY the neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered, along with supporting research. IASTM intervention strategies will also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care.

Spinal, Postural, Functional and performance Screens

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Functional Screening helps us to determine the sports specific protocol needed to create and build programs suitable maximizing performance. 

Functional Movement Systems - Move Well. Move Often.

Dr. Erik is both SFMA Level 1 Certified, FMS Level 1 Certified and FCS Certified. The Selective Functional Movement Assessment is the movement based diagnostic system, designed to clinically assess 7 fundamental movement patterns in those with known musculoskeletal pain. The assessment provides an efficient method to systematically find the cause of symptoms, not just the source, by logically breaking down dysfunctional patterns and diagnosing their root cause as either a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem. 

The Functional Movement Screen is the screening tool used to identify limitations or asymmetries in seven fundamental movement patterns that are key to functional movement quality in individuals with no current pain complaint or known musculoskeletal injury.

These movement patterns are designed to provide observable performance of basic loco motor, manipulative and stabilizing movements by placing an individual in extreme positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility and motor control is not utilized.

The Fundamental Capacity Screen (FCS) course observes four fundamental forms of movement energy expression and discusses how they interact with each other and the individual’s environment to create the sustainable movement fitness and movement health we seek.Creating durable performers in sport, work and recreation is the ultimate goal for coaches, trainers and healthcare professionals.

Olympic Weight Lifting Coach

olympic-lifting-coach-hawaii.jpg

Power development is crucial that leads to increase speed and strength. As the physics equation exist Power = Work / Time or Energy / Time where Work = force x distance then  Power = (Force x Distance) / Time or Power = (Force/Time) * (Distance/Time) where (D/T) is also known as velocity or speed and can be re-written as Power = (Force/Time) * Velocity. Force over Time is recognized then as mass(M)*Acceleration(A) * velocity (V) which can be written as Power = (MA) * V where MA is known as strength. The equation thus leads us to POWER = Strength * Speed where you can not have one without the other. The beauty about having a certified Olympic Weight Lifting Coach is to determine which of the two or are both needed to develop power.

Dr. Erik Shimane is certified as an Olympic Lifting Coach through Titlelist Performance Institute and Robert Yang.
