Cassidy Phillips is a biomechanical specialist concentrating on sports performance, injury prevention and the muscular structure that supports the efforts of the body in motion. His objective is to recognize the biomechanical challenges of movement and actions of everyday life and marry them with the biomechanical inefficiencies recognized within patterns of movement defined by a sport of choice or through sedentary patterns of movement such as sitting, walking and running.
The association of the leavers and fulcrums of the body--like hips, knees and ankles--are heavily influenced by the muscular structure that supports and surrounds them. Realizing that muscular structure and biomechanics play a roll in daily life, Phillips began analyzing athletes' sport specific movement patterns. After identifying muscular restrictions he recognizes the biomechanical needs to achieve a fluid motion. He then associates this with everyday patterns of movement or lack there of when sitting, standing, or walking. These are all opportunities for muscular dysfunction if not done in a biomechanically sound way. His theory is that most injuries developed by athletes don't happen while they're training, and that the traditional aches and pains of aging can be minimized by addressing everyday biomechanical and muscular structure.
Phillips believes that addressing the muscles in a synergistic manner allows the body to move freely, without restriction, due to the decrease in tension and the removal of dysfunctional fascia and trigger points.
Phillips prides himself on being able to pick up on biomechanical challenges by visually analyzing one's muscular structure through patterns of movement.
Once told that he could never be an athlete again due to a muscular dysfunction called Fybromyalgia, it became his personal mission to understand muscular structure and the regeneration of dysfunctional muscle tissue. Instead of going through the traditional methods of schooling in fear that his out-of-the-box approach would be squashed, Phillips tackled countless hours of research to better understand the various methods of massage, chiropractic care, surgical procedures and the treatment of traditional injuries in sport due to repetitive motion.
Through his research, Phillips felt there was a void in the homecare component of treatment. There was plenty of guidance towards therapy within a clinic and surgical remedies that didn't always work out in the patients favor, yet little empowerment for people to help themselves. This is why Phillips decided to work directly with those in need: athletes and non-athletes in pain.
Phillips gained a solid foundation on Myofascial Release Techniques a form of massage to address the muscle spindle and the associated dysfunction such as trigger points, adhesions, and other muscular challenges. This process also retrains the pattern of movement by opening up the neurological pathway allowing greater muscular proprioception.
After a long process of trial and error, he married his newly found education to his biomechanical background. The result is a line of patented products--called Trigger Point Technologies (TPT)--that mirror the feeling of the human hand.
Phillips has worked with the Olympic Training Center in Canada and the United States as well as world renowned Athletes Performance. He has assisted six Olympic athletes during their efforts in the 2004 Games, and has worked with NFL, NHL, and MLB players. Recently, he assisted some of the best triathletes and cyclist achieve their goal in being the best in the world.
Phillips' unconventional suggested treatment of plantar fasciitis (regen-training.com) and other foot dysfunctions is recognized and has been implemented in podiatry offices. He has also shown that his non-traditional methods of suggested treatment for knee pain, lower back pain, IT band issues, and piriformis syndrome is both safe and extremely effective.
TPT and RE-GEN Performance Training have been recognized by medical doctors, orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors and massage therapists in their traditional treatment plans. Variations have also assisted personal trainers and coaches in the periodization of training for their clients.
Athletes and non-athletes from around the world have used Phillips and TPT products to implement the use of Myofascial release with incredible and sometimes life-altering results.
