About Body Mechanix Physiotherapy and Fitness
We help active people in Tallahassee quickly recover from injury so they can keep playing their sport, exercising and enjoying the life they deserve free from painkillers and surgery even if other treatments have failed
At Body Mechanix Physiotherapy we love to help people in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and above, get back to living the life they deserve. Which means a life free from painkillers, where you don’t have to worry about bothering the doctor, and can do and enjoy all of the things you love, without the fear of pain holding you back.
When something like chronic pain strikes in your knee, lower-back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury from sport or exercise - we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on it’s own” with time and rest… That you’ll wake up someday and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened in the first place - but that’s usually not the case, and often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.
We also know it’s very easy to reach into medicine cabinet for the painkillers, and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast - but all those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain instead.
Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even skeptical because you’ve sought advice from other Healthcare professionals, or a Physical Therapist in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped.
Many of our clients find us after their physician or Dr. Google told them “you just need to rest,” but rest alone wasn’t the answer and every time they tried to be active again, the pain would return.
Many have been given pain pills and muscle relaxers but don’t like using them, don’t want to become dependent on them, and know that those things are not treating the true causes of their pain.
Some have tried physical therapy before but were at a clinic where they just repeated a bunch of exercises they could do on their own time, and they felt that the physical therapist just rushed from one patient to the next … rarely using any hands-on care or spending much one-on-one time with them.
Some have relied on their personal trainer or massage therapist to fix the problem even though those professionals don’t have the training or legal scope of practice to diagnose and treat complex pain/injury.
Does this sound like you?
If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physios at our Tallahassee Physiotherapy Clinic to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!
Click the link below to book a call with us if you would like to get some solid advice given to you over the phone. The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
If you can relate to any of the above scenarios, please know that you are not alone. Here are a few statements from people, probably a lot like you, who were in pain and found answers with our unique, one-on-one care and hands-on approach:
"Dr. Alkire is amazing. I do a very intensive martial art, Capoeira. I've been practicing for 20 years and am 40 years old. Dr. Alkire has been a godsend. He has helped me work through years of injuries and bad physical habits. Things that I thought I'd have to live with, he has helped fix with some basic therapies. As a middle age athlete, I highly recommend him. 10/10 !
I have been working with Brandon for over 10 years starting with getting in shape for my wedding. He has helped me achieve my goals which included beating my marine corps father at America's finest city half marathon, fitness through my pregnancy, getting back in shape after having my son, and knee and back pain. He listens and adapts the sessions to what I need. I highly recommend Brandon for anyone looking to manage pain so you can get out there and achieve your goals whatever they are!
