Applied Functional Science
Welcome to G3 Physical Therapy & Wellness located in Encinitas, CA. We implement an approach called Applied Functional Science which takes into account whole body wellness and functionality. Understanding our physiology and biology to find the root cause of our problems is crucial to the healing process. It shortens the recovery period, restores functional activities, decreases episodes of recurrences, and prevents other injuries.
Physical therapy is for the preservation, enhancement, and restoration of movement and physical function impaired or threatened by disease, injury, or disability that utilizes therapeutic exercise, physical modalities (such as soft tissue/facia release, laser), assistive devices like orthotics, and patient education and training.
We focus on 3 key areas:
- Our bodies operate in a chain reaction, and what happens to one body part profoundly affects the rest of the other body parts.
- AFS helps us find the root cause of your pain, not just the local source. This leads to faster, more thorough healing with reduced risk of re-injury.
- At G3, we channel the behavioral, biological and physical principles of functional movement to work with your mind, body and spirit and develop healing habits to help you age without pain.
At G3, we love working with people from ages 8-80 and focus not only on Physical Therapy, but also overall wellness. We offer our clients massage, acupuncture, non-invasive laser muscle therapy, fitness training, nutrition and other wellness services to enhance your overall well-being.
