If you have pain, then chances are your muscles are involved and maybe even 100% responsible for it.
The good news is that Chris, the owner of Exercise Progression, is known as the “Muscle Whisperer” to his clients and has a knack for getting to the bottom of just about any pain, especially if it’s muscular or joint pain.
The bad news is, well, there really isn’t any as long as you are willing to come in for an evaluation and put some time into specific daily activity modifications aimed at improving your situation.
Unlike most doctors, Chris has spent more than 13 years studying the muscles and their pain patterns while successfully practicing soft-tissue techniques and implementing medical exercise programs for 1000’s of clients.
He has learned that no matter what causes pain, bringing the body back into its most balanced muscular state will allow painful symptoms to subside and other issues to resolve naturally. Clinical research also supports these findings.
Please do not believe that rest alone can help your situation or even worse, anti-inflammatories. These are proven to PROLONGE healing.
The secret to a full recovery, which includes preventing it from happening again, is balancing the muscles and joints surrounding key areas and learning what and what not to do on a daily basis.
This is done with specific stretches, exercises, and daily activity modifications that balance tension and create coordination in the body.
Here are some GOOD THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MUSCLE PAIN;
- Most of the time, up to 75%, the source of soft tissue pain is not at the site of the pain. Trigger points can refer pain all the way down the extremities and up into the head.
- Trigger points are a common cause of muscle and joint pain and have known referral patterns throughout the entire body.
- Balancing tension in the muscles and joints can relieve pain and get rid of trigger points.
- Better posture leads to more energy, better digestion, less aches and pains, and much much more.
- Muscle pain can persist as long as the habits that created it persist.
- Muscle pain can vanish as soon as the habits that created it vanish.
- Injured muscles do not tend to fully recover on their own.
- Muscles repair themselves with scar tissue, which has less blood flow and range of motion due to thicker fibers in the “scar”.
- It is possible to better align this scar tissue and improve its function with movement and massage.
If you are self-motivated and ready to take health into your own hands, then we can help you.
Whether it’s through our Pain Release Techniques or Medical Exercise, we will show you the way back to a pain-free life, for good.
Our goal at Exercise Progression is to work with your specific goals and focus on what makes your pain worse, and what makes it better.
We’ve learned that if you consistently do more of what makes it better than what makes it worse, you will get better, every time.
We do not care about sets and reps in the gym. We care if you can go through all aspects of life while allowing your muscles to heal as fast and efficiently as possible. If that means teaching you how to operate in the gym, at home, in the office, in the plane, car, walking the dog, everywhere and anywhere, then that’s what your program will focus on.
It is not unusual to find that your pain will instantly disappear once certain habits improve, and that’s without even balancing the muscles! However, balancing the muscles is what will keep the pain from coming back again.
Try our PAIN MANAGEMENT TOOLS to help you reach your goals of a pain-free and active life.

"I've been turning to Chris for over 5 years as the only person I really trust to get to the heart of any tightness and why it might be there in the first place. I truly appreciate Chris' authentically holistic approach to health--not just "fixing what's wrong" but giving a prescription for long term correction and motivation to incorporate it as regular movement rather than a temporary or short term alteration. I can't help telling everyone I know about Chris--because everyone can benefit, in so many ways!"
You worked on my persistently painful knee, and since we completed the treatments, I have not known one minute of trouble with that knee! I have thought of you so many times as I have hiked comfortably to my heart's content and done a full yoga program for years, and I have had such appreciation for your expertise and your beautiful healing Spirit. Thanks to you, I have not had even a trace of knee pain!
