Dr. Conley’s philosophy is simple, everyone moved very well as a child and at some point in their lives, functional movement and stability were lost. These can be taught and re-learned to assist in a better quality of life, increased performance on the field and a precursor to injury. To move well is to function and perform well, no matter what age or what level of athlete one may be. How you move is far more important than that you move and learning to control movement is the ultimate goal.
