Welcome to Launch Sport Performance! We address the entire body, not just individual joints and muscles, to resolve the underlying cause of your pain.
We appreciate the differences between each human body and how we are not created in perfect symmetry.
We honor the strong linkage between the brain and body; it must be fully understood, intensely applied, and well-respected in order to achieve pain free movement.
We will work with you to maximize your body's efficiency and performance.
