About Us

Our Mission

Geared Performance is not just a business, it is a standard. We strive to provide the highest quality of care and education through individualized treatment plans and training programs. We are dedicated to helping you improve your performance – whether it is for your sport, living a healthy pain-free lifestyle, or recovering from an injury.

Our Story

Geared Performance was developed around many conversations on providing the highest standard of care for our clients. After hearing countless stories of horrible experiences regarding other health care practitioners in the health care field, we came to realize that the standard of care was not being upheld. There is no “one size fits all” approach, and so it was decided to create a brand and business that best represents and demonstrates the quality of care that our clients deserve.

How We Do It

Through a comprehensive assessment, we will identify limitations in movement patterns and soft tissue impairments. Then, by using a combination of Manual Therapy and individualized Exercise Selection, we will work with you to improve your overall function. By improving these limitations, rehabilitating pre-existing and new injuries, and improving biomechanics, we give you all the tools and education needed for long-term success.
