Muscular imbalance is often a component within pain.

-A skilled therapist can aid in returning muscles towards balance.

-A self-help enthusiast with adequate information can help themselves.

-Often times, pain can be reduced rather quickly.

-Sometimes it's simply a matter of having information and guidance.

Muscle Management® offers remarkably effective resources for the manual therapist seeking continuing education and the self-help enthusiast looking for information and answers.

Chances are you came here searching for information, for alternatives and answers about pain...yours, your family member, your friends, or maybe even one of your clients.

Our focus is information about the muscular component 'participating' in that pain...and that is Muscle Management's focus, relieving pain and restoring function by focusing precision therapy on the muscles.

We offer a unique approach to working 'with' the body's natural built-in maintenance, recovery, and health management abilities with respect to its largest and most often under-appreciated system...
The Muscles.


"Disease does not occur unexpectedly.

It is the result of constant violation of Nature's laws.

Spreading and accumulation of such violations

transpire suddenly in the form of a disease...

but it only seems sudden."



Each and every day we 'live' within an incredibly wonderful example of engineering, strength, and efficient design... Our own body!!!

This incredible "machine" is greatly influenced by a very commonsense organization of ropes, pulleys, and levers… the muscles, tendons, and skeleton.

For example, consider that our body orchestrates and coordinates over 200 muscles to take one smooth step...
When I see limping, I 'see' a variety of components unable to blend into that simple motion, and I wonder... what muscles are out of balance and unable to participate fully?

Muscle Management® is about managing all of the above by means of respecting and responding to the vital role muscles play in our body's overall well-being.

Our intention is to encourage, promote, and maintain healthy states of balance and ease through recognizing, respecting, and responding to the important role the body's muscles play in overall well being. Muscular health can often be a primary contributing factor in many muscular/skeletal situations.

Muscle movement constantly shapes the quality of our daily lives. Problems with this system can often be a primary contributing factor to situations where we are more tense, irritable, fatigued, less active... and in PAIN!!!


Negative influences often include everyday pressures, stresses, repetitive motions, mismanaged injuries (especially in athletes), trauma, fibromyalgia, arthritis... and the list goes on.


Pain can often be so relentless and widespread that radical medical intervention is required.

However, pain management clinicians have found that non-invasive corrective massage that targets specific problematic muscles can provide pain relief.

This 'Muscle Management®' approach has been described as "ischemic compression," "soft tissue release", "acupressure", and "deep tissue massage", among many other terms.

These related disciplines usually produce muscular balance and relaxation, making it possible to return to pain-free fitness and health. We refer to our approach as "corrective massage" with the additional intention of correcting common distortions.

According to JAMA, musculoskeletal conditions account for more disability and more costs to the US health care system than any other condition.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), repetitive strain injuries are the nation's most common and costly occupational health problem, affecting hundreds of thousands of American workers, and costing more than $20 billion a year in workers compensation. Maybe with a bit more understanding, this figure won't get much more out of control.

Our Self Help section can be useful for those looking to take an active role in their own Muscle Management®.
