Who We Treat

No matter your endeavor, we have got you covered. Our focus on athletic individuals has allowed us to see and help a variety of people through our career. As experts in human movement and performance, we understand the needs of your sport. We may not compete in all of them, but we have fixed many of them! Come to give us a chance to help you be your best at your sport!

  • Bodybuilders
    • A sport of precision and detail, where the littlest muscle imbalance will throw off your Physique and make the difference of the first call out or not at all. We are specialist in fixing the imbalances that come from years of training to look your best. Our soft tissue techniques will not only help you activate muscles better but the shape and create detail like nothing before. Let us help you build the physique you have always wanted.
  • CrossFit
    • Forging elite fitness is hard work and can be hard on the body. Dr. Avakian always says that “Crossfit doesn’t hurt people, but it will expose your weakness and imbalances”. If you don’t work on those with a professional who understands your sport, your fitness then injury will likely occur. We have been working with Crossfit athletes since 2010 and have fixed many athletes to help them move to Regionals and Games levels of competition. No one understands “elite fitness” better!
  • Combat Sports
    • Whether it is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai or Krav Maga we have worked on recreational to professional level fighters to keep them top notch on the mat, in the ring, cage or street. The art of defense and offense is hard on the body and we can help keep you injury free as you train. Don’t let the wear and tear of your sport end your career or training unnecessarily. We can keep you kicking, punching, throwing and rolling better than anyone in the valley because we have helped more fighters stay in the match than anyone in the area.   
  • Weightlifters
    • Shoulders, knees and lower back are the weak links in this sport. Don’t let poor ankle, wrist or shoulder mobility keep you from your best lifts. We have helped many a lifter better their PR by removing these barriers to their training. If your having problems with your Snatch due to poor shoulder mobility, stability or ankle mobility then we can help. Of your clean causes pain in the front of your shoulder in the rack position or in your overhead position. There is a simple fix for this huge problem that is limiting your lifts.
  • Powerlifters
    • Squat, bench and deadlift, seems simple enough? Well not if your posterior chain doesn’t work! Lower back “tweaks” in the deadlift and squat can cause “glute amnesia” and ruin your power and totals. Bad shoulder, especially the acromioclavicular joint (pain in the front of the shoulder) and you won’t bench your body weight without pain, much less in your next meet. Let us help boost your totals by removing those obstacles.   
  • Runners
    • You might be a marathoner or ultramarathoner, but the stats are against you either way. You have a 19-92% chance of injury if you don’t work with the right professionals to remove the movement and strength imbalances. We have worked with many an athlete to keep them on the road and trails healthy and injury free, let us help you NOT be another statistic.
  • Triathletes
    • On your way to Kona, not if your body doesn’t help you. Triathletes push the envelope of human performance with the grueling test of the swim, bike, and run. We can help you perform at your best, but mobility, strength, and endurance are prerequisites to finishing the race. Let us use our knowledge of movement and strength ensure you make it to the big race!
  • Gymnastics
    • For 10 years Dr. Avakian worked with some of the top gymnasts in Washington state to keep them healthy, strong and competing. Whether it was the floor, the beam, bars or tramp we understand your skills and movements best to help keep injuries from occurring and reoccurring in your sport. If you’re a level 1 or a level 10 we have the knowledge and training to keep you competing and progressing all the way to the top! 
  • Golf
    • Whether it is the PGA or the LPGA we have worked with the best to keep them in the fairway and out of the bunkers. Shoulder pain, lower back pain, and movement imbalances are the plague of this sport and we have helped many to be able to play safely and pain-free at the top of their game.
  • Soccer
    • Non-contact injuries to the knee are the epidemic in this sport. Dr. Vitagliano understands the needs of these athletes better than anyone. He has competed and taken care of athletes at all levels of the sport and can keep you be injury free or rehab you back to a better state for competition.
