My name is Rick Raugewitz. I have now been a physical therapist for over 30 years. In that time, I have worked in and experienced every facet of physical therapy. With that experience I have also gained many tools for my toolbox. However, I became frustrated with the results my patients were getting with the traditional approaches that physical therapy used for pain and dysfunction. In my searching for more effective methods to help my patients I started taking Myofascial Release classes from John F. Barnes. I was amazed to say the least by how viewing things differently and treating the body from a fascial perspective dramatically improved my ability to help my patients. Their pain decreased and function improved. It was a true paradigm shift for me. It is not just about doing "To" a person but about working "With" a person that also makes a profound difference in the effectiveness of this approach. Honestly, Myofascial Release has been a lifesaver for me, both personally and professionally.
Now, the cornerstone and foundation of my treatments is the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release approach. Releasing and improving the functioning of the fascial system makes a positive effect on pain issues and dysfunction; whether treating chronic issues like Fibromyalgia, orthopedic problems, athletic injuries, spinal pain , headaches, TMJ or the consequences of other disease processes.
If you have also been frustrated with the results of your search for wellness and healing give me a call. Myofascial release may be the key to unlock your bodies healing potential. It can augment and blend with your other care as well. I continue to learn and expand my skills and knowledge with this gentle, yet powerfully effective work.
