Ever since working with Brian on my movement patterns and mobility, not only is my squat stronger than ever, it is the most technically proficient than it has ever been. Whether you are a competitive athlete or someone who just does sports recreationally, I recommend going to Xcel Movement and Performance for all of your needs including injury, recovery and performance"
My entire sports career seemed to be riddled with low back issues. I have battled tight hips, poor flexibility in my hamstrings and awful movement of the ankle. Dr. Campbell took the time to listen to my sports background and understand where the issues started. He helped me understand why I was having pain and what the steps would look like to solve the problem. After the very first visit, the pain and tightness in my low back was gone and my shoulder mobility was improved as well. Xcel Movement and Performance created an individual mobility plan that attacked the areas I had problems with. Today, my ankle flexibility continues to improve along with any overhead movement involving my shoulders and chest. Hamstrings are beginning to loosen and my back has been healthy since the first visit. In total, Dr. Brian Campbell is professional, responsive and incredibly knowledgeable about improving movement which directly impacts performance be it sport or leisure. I would encourage anyone, regardless of the issue, to visit Xcel Movement and Performance.
I have seen Physical Therapists on and off since the age of 12, when I first was diagnosed with multidirectional subluxation in both of my shoulders. I was told by a few orthopedic surgeons that I had hyperextending joints, and would not be able to continually compete at high levels of athletics, or workout at high intensities, due to the instability. The years of physical therapy provided brief moments of relief, and short-term fixes, but I never felt like I was truly moving forward. I would always re-injure myself, and end up worse off than I was previously. Xcel Movemen and Performance had a completely different approach to my therapy, which was refreshing and exciting. He identified the WHY behind my issues, and was able to show me where my joints were trying to compensate for weak muscles. He was also able to show me how years of swimming had really changed the mechanics of my body, and not necessarily in a good way! He had me work on stability and mobility, rather than purely strengthening accessory muscles. He used dry needling and helped to re-engage some of my inactive muscles. In just a few weeks, I was nearly pain free during my workouts. I’ve noticed my feet straightening out when I walk, my shoulders rarely pop anymore, and my Olympic lifting has gotten a lot stronger. For the first time, in fifteen years, I actually want to do all of my physical therapy exercises because I can feel them working, and have the concrete proof of PR’s to show for it. Xcel Movement and Performance is the best thing that has happened to me as an athlete.
