• CARs are your ESSENTIAL DOSE of daily movement.

  • Like brushing your teeth...for your joints.

  • 10 min/day for physical longevity.

Controlled Articular Rotations

CARs are active rotational movements through the outer limits of your joints range of motion. They are the foundation of Functional Range Conditioning and Kinstretch. The challenge is to move through FULL range, with FULL control and to limit compensations at neighbouring joints. Each lap is slow, mindful and intense.

  • CARs are a multipurpose tool :

  • joint mobility

  • joint health

  • joint assessment

  • injury prevention

  • MOVEMENT IS MEDICIINE

  • Movement nourishes articular cartilage, prevents maturation of fibrotic tissue, prevents dysafferentation, maximizes cortical representation ( teaches your brain about your joint) and is your best anti-inflammatory.

  • CARs are also an assessment tool. They are your circumduction metric. They express and explore your joints WORKSPACE. How big is the circle? Can you move without compensations? Is there aberrant joint function at end range (closing angle pain)? So much useful information to direct treatment and guide training.

  • So simple. So powerful.

Move your joints every day

my story

I believe MOVEMENT is the the best therapy and our most powerful tool. I am a self proclaimed “movement science geek” and my mission is to bring you high quality movement videos so you can begin your journey of FEELING GOOD and REACHING YOUR PHYSICAL POTENTIAL. I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years and have a clinical practice in North Vancouver where I use a combination of manual therapy, dry needling and movement. In addition, I am a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy. Locally, I teach group KINSTRETCH + DNS + FT classes and lead workshops for movement enthusiasts. I love teaching, am CONSTANTLY learning and am insanely curious about anatomy. All bodies and levels are welcome. I hope to see you soon!
