Most therapies are focused on physical symptoms of injuries such as shifted vertebrae, strained tendons, or stuck fascia. For example, let's say you have herniated discs in the low back.
You may go to see...
You may be told to take muscle relaxers. You may have surgery to trim the herniated portion of the disc to reduce the symptoms of back pain and nerve pain.
You may be put into spinal traction. You may be given back and abdominal muscle stretches and strengthening exercises.
Your neck may be adjusted to cause less spinal compensation. You may be set up with foot-leveling orthotic inserts to level their hips.
Evo Performance Rehab Neurological Soft Tissue Therapy differs in that our approach is focused on the body’s control center, the nervous system. To Evo, all of these structural symptoms are connected to a deeper underlying cause… neurological dysfunction.
Now let's say you come to Evo Performance Rehab.
Your movement will be assessed, and a neurological search will be performed to find which areas have compromised neurological communication and ability to absorb force.
For example, your evaluation treatment may find that your hamstrings are underactive and unable to absorb force. It may be evident in your movement that your hamstrings do not lengthen and engage well, so your back curves and extends excessively to overcompensate when you pick something up.
Restoring much of the function of the hamstrings may only take minutes and will immediately lessen the stress on the low back musculature as well as take pressure off of the discs. This also improves flexibility and strength, reduces inflammation, and increases circulation at the same time. A lot of time and energy can get misplaced when symptoms are the focus of treatment!
This also clears the way for proper strengthening. Many people are unable to take advantage of their physical therapy exercises because their bodies are too guarded to allow the proper muscles to engage the way they are meant to. If Neurological Soft Tissue Therapy is introduced, this imbalance can be corrected and progress can be made in tandem with their current therapies!

EVO Once completely paralyzed, my latest vestige of repair has been inspired to new levels at EVO Performance Rehab, focusing directly on restoring the body’s Central Nervous System. Guided by the experienced ultimately professional Tyler Kleinhuizen. I was more than ready to do whatever necessary to continue on my once seemingly endless rehabilitative Journey. It has been critical for Me to hold tight the reconstructive reigns as I gallop apace toward gaining complete physical Freedom. EVO has been the utmost critical processing need for my re-integration. If EVO can function so effectively for a waste-case such that my body had become, I cannot recommend it highly enough for you to get the penultimate physical fix: DO IT.
When I started rehab therapy with Tyler, I had been in pain for 7 years from a horse related accident. The pain was in my low right back and hip area I had tried every type of physical therapy, injections, acupuncture, dry needling with electrodes, Pilates for 2 1/2 years4-5 days a week, massages, hot stone massages with cupping. One day while having a hot stone massage in a gym that had other venues inside, I discovered this EVO Performance Rehab center. Asked questions, made an appointment with Typer, and never looked back! It was truly amazing what he can help one accomplish. I did 20 sessions. It is amazing how much I learned about the body. One has to be ready to put in the work. Tyler is an awesome coach. Before I went to EVO Performance Rehab, I was in a dark depressive state. Nothing had worked prior, so I was skeptical. I had nothing to lose, so I tried as hard as I could. I have made a lot of improvement, mentantly, and physically. I am still doing the stretching etc. that I learned.
Evo has been life changing for me. Tyler is outstanding , and one of the my knowledgeable people I have ever met, with regard to the human body. I was struggling with chronic lower back pain for nearly a year before I finally got fed up and said there has to be something more I can do. A simple Google search brought me to Evo. After the first session I was feeling relief in my lower back. Tyler was able to use his knowledge and equipment to determine the cause of the pain which was actually various muscles in my legs. I’ve been on a multiple week path to recovery and have been able to return to all “normal” facets of life that caused me pain previously.
