Dr. Herbert Starks

Physical Therapist, Movement Links Certified Clinician

Dr. Starks utilizes an eclectic approach when addressing the human movement system.  The focus is first on establishing optimal motor patterns (i.e. mobility) while considering the client’s natural movement bias.  Myofascial integrity is essential in maintaining ideal levels of good tension along with postural symmetry.  Therefore, the myofascial system is continuously assessed over the course of treatment. Within this process “hands-on” techniques are utilized to improve the efficiency of movement and optimization of performance.

Dr. Starks’ ever evolving Movement Philosophy is grounded in the following: Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (The Prague School) and principles of Functional Movement
