The Louis Valencia, DC, CSCS initial treatment plan in San Francisco CA of a couple of times a week to a few times a week may be needed initially to get one out of pain while restoring neuromusculoskeletal functional capacity, and then onto a less frequent treatment plan will then be initiated to address your functional deficits and joint/myofascial dysfunction, which is a time consuming process. A fitness and functional capacity evaluation will be done on the second visit, so a functional diagnosis can be made. This way your care is customized to your individual goals, needs, and/or your deficits, so you can return to your prior functional status and relief of your symptoms.

It is a process of activating weaker muscles with exercise, stretching shortened muscles, and by addressing the joint and myofascial dysfunction with physiologic therapeutic modalities, manual therapies such as, chiropractic adjustments and myofascial release which can act on the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS) by relieving nerve impingement, spinal pain, and extremity pain. The three aspects of conservative treatment of locomotor system disorders are advice, manipulation, and exercise.

Physiologic therapeutic modalities, chiropractic adjustments, and other manual therapies helps the communication between CNS and PNS by addressing restricted joint fixations/subulxations and myofascial dysfunction, which can impair movement, muscles, organs, and lead to nerve compression thus altered communication, as nerves pass in between vertebra and through shortened soft tissues, and/or from spasms
splinting areas near the spine and extremities.

Functional rehabilitation, personal fitness training, and sports strength and conditioning acts as a stimulus for adaptations of the locomotor system, thus improving functional capacity functions, such as strength, flexibility, cardiovascular/muscular endurance, and motor control functions- balance and coordination. We work on increasing your activity tolerance when suffering from acute and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions, as well as teaching self-care skills for controlling and coping with recurrent or chronic conditions of the spine,
pelvis, extremities, and soft tissues of the body.


Taken together- proper body mechanics, good posture, exercise, good nutrition/hydration, soft tissue techniques, and manipulation of articulating fixated joints allows for better nerve function with improved motor control in our movement patterns in play, work, and at home in your activities of daily living. This way you learn how to maintain your active lifestyle, and age gracefully sparing your soft tissues and joints in a safe, fun, and efficient manner to achieve optimal results. The improved communication within the nervous system allowing for better adaptation and homeostasis, thus allows for optimal health and peak athletic performance.
