The ProActive Approach

Dr. Belkowski’s approach to treating clients:

“I genuinely believe in reducing my client’s pain as quickly as possible. My ultimate goal is to achieve complete reduction in pain and/or return to baseline function in as few appointments as possible."

Dr. Belkowski’s approach to ​​​​​reducing pain:

“The crux of all physical pain that, ultimately, also contributes to many mental maladies, is inflammation.
Dry needling and cupping are two of the most potent and effective anti-inflammatory treatment options that continuously provide a significant decrease in, and often complete resolution of, my client’s pain. Not only are they consistently successful, but they involve minimal negative side affects."    
Dr. Belkowski’s approach to​​​​​​​ improving strength:

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training is undoubtedly the future of strength training and physical rehabilitation. It is literally the fastest way to build muscle without breaking down your body -- no tearing up your muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, etc., which means no inflammation in your body after BFR training. This inevitably leads to a decreased risk of injury while also optimizing your performance during your exercise and athletic endeavors... What more could you ask for?!"
