Pain is a message.

A message most people misunderstand.

I recognize the neuromuscular system’s role when it comes to pain
and understand neuromuscular dysfunction.
I provide a pathway to recovery.
— Dianne Rockefeller
Stress, trauma, overuse and repetitive motions can alter muscle function efficiency. Reduced neuromuscular functionality can result in structural imbalances.
A 3D postural assessment can make all the difference for human performance, well being, health and productivity of any athlete or patient. Being analyzed in frontal, sagittal and transverse planes of movement enable me to correct range of issues, including neck, shoulder, back pain and beyond.
This in-depth anatomical team approach to body structural integration ensures that you are progressing toward improved health and better performance.
My Goals for every Client ...
• Improve Biomechanics, Symmetry & Form
• Stabilize Joints & Improve Range of Motion
• Increase Muscle Strength, Power & Endurance
• Reduce Pain, Adhesions & Injuries
• Accelerate Recovery Times & Healing
• Maximize Overall Athletic Performance
The Search for Clues
No part of the body moves independently. Rather than stretching out your restricted and tight areas, I assess why resistance is present.
Working out the Kinks
The focus is on discovering where your body is hiding imbalances and then to individualize therapy to help you tap into your hidden strength and stability.
Get Back (and Stay) In The Game
Unfortunately, pain and injury are often a common part of life and sport. Depending on the individual, regular treatments may be a part of maintaining your advantage.
CUTTING EDGE COMPUTER ANALYSIS
3D Movement Assessment Biofeedback:
Every human body is unique, and each individual has their own mobility and stability capabilities. A comprehensive look at how your whole body moves provides valuable insight into performance and injury prevention. Analyzing 3D movement in real time and through recorded video offers valuable insight and understanding of functional movement, purpose, and effectiveness of therapy treatment.
Assess, Correct, and Re-Assess
With the use of 3D Functional Movement Assessment data throughout your treatment pathway, your therapy and exercise is taylored to your individual needs. Real time biofeedback is applied frequently as part of your normal therapy sessions. This continuum of unbiased data closes the gap from treating only the symptoms of your injury, to addressing the actual causes of your injury/compensations.
Who is 3D Movement Assessment Biomechanical for?
A complete 3D Biomechanical Assessment may suit those planning to increase their exercise levels, training for an event, pre/post-season sports period, or returning from injury goals. Comprehensive biofeedback is great for injury prevention; identifying both strengths and weaknesses in your movements, as well as helping if you have a history of recurrent injuries.
What our clients are saying ...
Dianne will explain exactly what she intends to do and her plan to get results. She takes a keen interest in my progress with consistent follow up. I would recommend her to anyone.
I have played college and professional tennis and have taught at The Domninion Country for over 25 years. In my career I have suffered the typical injuries common to my sport. I have been to many therapists over the years and have not enjoyed the results Dianne Rockefeller has achived. Specifically, my elbow and shoulder. After 3 or 4 sessions I was able to hit tennis balls again with the energy and aggressiveness needed to teach and compete. Dianne will explain exactly what she intends to do and her plan to get results. She takes a keen interest in my progress with consistent follow up. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dianne's results have made a night & day difference -- it is incredible to be pain free for the first time in many years! During my treatments/sessions with Dianne, she has taken the time to fully explain the process of her treatment(s) and why. I highly recommend Dianne for your physical therapy needs!
I have been to see several therapists over the past two years, but the results have been disappointing. Unlike other therapists that have only attempted to treat the symptoms of my pain from Crossfit workouts & competitions, Dianne was able to pinpoint the source of pain, treat it & resolve the issue.

Dianne told me she could fix me and I was of course very skeptical. I have never gone more than a day without back pain. Dianne actually, no BS, fixed me. It’s incredible!
Dianne told me she could fix me and I was of course very skeptical. After all, I have suffered from back pain for over 20 years, during which time I have seen countless therapists including osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists, pretty much everyone you can imagine. Generally anything helps a little but that is all. Just a little. No fix. I assumed my problem was purely skeletal and disc related as all my X rays and MRI’s suggest and not curable. I had my first session with Dianne two weeks ago and I have been pain free since our session. I have never gone more than a day without back pain. Dianne actually, no BS, fixed me. It’s incredible! The best two therapists I have seen (the best osteopath in London and a 60 year veteran Thai massage master in Thailand) treated me holistically by working on irregularities in my entire body biomechanics and not just clicking and or manipulating a specific area. In other words they looked at all of my entire muscular and nervous system across my body and worked out what was wrong and worked these areas which in turn alleviated my back problems. Dianne did exactly the same thing but unbelievably took it to the next level. She worked on me for an extended period of time and did not give up until she was satisfied all parts of my body was working in harmony with each other. I stood up and my back instantly felt better but more miraculously was the next day and every day since I have not felt a single tinge of back pain. OMG!

Essentially Dianne analyses your entire body’s nervous and muscular system and very accurately works out where issues are. She picked up on shoulder, knee and ankle injuries before I even mentioned them. She then applied the right level of pressure, the right way in exactly the right spot to free up areas where nerves and muscles are not working together as they should. During the treatment I felt movement and flexibility improving.

Before the treatment I had one side of my pelvis standing higher than the other. After the treatment, this was corrected, as validated by my personal trainer at the gym over a week after the treatment. He couldn’t believe it.

Dianne has not only mastered her craft but I think she must also have a sixth sense as I cannot believe what a life changing difference just one session has made on me.

The results I get after each session are impressive. I walk away feeling completely balanced. I am able to lift equipment, climb ladders, and work in tight spaces with ease. Dianne is very systematic and thorough her therapy approach.
I work for an air conditioning company that has me both in the office and in the field. I periodically see Dianne for a tune-up when I start to notice a decrease in range of motion or a change in posture. The results I get after each session are impressive. I walk away feeling completely balanced. I am able to lift equipment, climb ladders, and work in tight spaces with ease. Dianne is very systematic and thorough her therapy approach. She also does an excellent job explaining why issues are present and how she plans to address them. I highly encourage anyone with joint pain or muscle tightness issues to see her.

Check out this interview with Dianne Rockefeller about Muscle Activation Techniques vs. Technology!
Muscle Pain: It might Really Be Your Fascia
Most clients who come to see me attribute a painful shoulder, neck or back to tired muscles or stiff joints. But these symptoms can also be caused by a part of your body you probably haven’t heard of…the fascia. Until recently, this complex network of tissue throughout our bodies received very little attention despite it’s leading role in every move we make, as well as being our body’s largest organ (yes, it’s larger than the skin).
What is fascia?
Fascia is a thin covering of connective tissue that surrounds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place within our body. This complex tissue does way more than provide internal organization and structure; it also contains nerves that are almost as sensitive as your skin. When fascia is stressed, it tightens up within our body. The muscle tightness you’re feeling is more likely being caused by your fascia.
Although fascia can look like a sheet of tissue, it’s actually made up of multiple layers with liquid in between called hyaluronan. Fascia is designed to stretch and glide as your body moves. Healthy fascia is smooth, slippery and flexible and allows body movement free from any restrictions.
Fascia-Related Pain and Muscle Tightness
When certain things occur within your body, it can cause fascia to thicken and become sticky. When this happens it can cause fascia to dry up and tighten around muscles causing limited mobility, pain, and knots (adhesions) to develop. Factors that can cause fascia to become dysfunctional are:
  • Lifestyle of limited movements and physical activity, such as sitting for hours at a desk day after day
  • Repetitive movements that overwork one part of your body, like with your arms when working on a computer
  • Trauma of a surgery or an injury
For some people, pain adhesions can worsen over time causing the fascia to contort or compress the muscle it surrounds. This can result in hard, tender area in the muscle called trigger points. These trigger points can cause pain to occur:
  • During regular movements or in sports activities
  • When pressure is applied to an area on the body
  • In seemingly unrelated parts of the body called “referred pain”
How to Keep Fascia Healthy?
Keeping your fascia healthy has many more benefits than you can imagine. Besides being able to move more easily, having better range of motion, you will find that you experience less pain and discomfort too. Things you can do to prevent fascia problems are:
  • Move more and in a variety of ways. In addition to exercising, change up your routine and avoid doing the same workout every day.
  • Have a desk or office job? Take a few minutes every hour to stand up and move around the office. Consider taking the stairs vs. the elevator, walk around your office when on a conference call. Be active throughout your day.
  • Try to maintain good posture. Posture is important because it’s the position from where all movement starts. Slumping over your desk staring at a screen or on the phone can cause fascia to tighten. Try to maintain good posture whether sitting or standing.
  • Get Sleep. Maintaining proper rest is priceless and cost you nothing.
  • Stay Well Hydrated. Drink water throughout your day…don’t wait until your thirsty.
  • Practice relaxation methods such as Breathing Exercises. Your body is built around your breath! Again, this costs you nothing.
Types of Fascia Pain Conditions
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Myofascial Pain Syndrome
How to Treat Fascia Pain?
Apart from the obvious unpleasant pain, fascia system dysfunction can get in the way of doing sports or other physical activities. Pain is a message from your body that something is wrong. Stress trauma and overuse/underuse, and repetitive movements can alter your fascia system’s integrity. While it is not certain what caused it, one thing for sure is that relief is possible with the right treatment.
Every previous injury you’ve experienced in your life is like malware in your body’s fascia system. Like malware glitches can slow down the performance of a computer, previous trauma impacts the nervous and fascia systems to create “energy leakages” that influence overall body performance. The body is an interrelated system and every action causes a reaction.
At Dominion Performance and Sports Therapy, I offer a manual therapeutic soft tissue approach that doesn’t involve steroid shots, dry needling, acupuncture, or pain. Starting with a complex biomechanical screening used to assess your body, I’m able to identify and explain the root drivers for your discomfort. Then, show before and after a treatment screenings that provide the data backed results.
Cheers,  DRock
“During our daily activities (work or play), we often repeat the same set of movements -- but not always correctly. Over time, demands of such incorrect movements can place serious strain on our neuromuscular system.

Simply stretching tight muscles or avoiding something that triggers pain, running less, purchasing new shoes or modifying exercises will certainly decrease your discomfort, but the imbalances will remain until properly corrected. Movement causing pain must be identified, corrected and retrained. 

I can help identify whether or not your sport, fitness program, weight training or activity is pushing you toward better health and improved performance or toward injury, inflammation and decreased performance.”
