A personal message from physical therapist, Kevin Mao...

Dear Reader,

  • Are you worried about back pain that isn’t going away on its own, no matter how much "rest" you've been told to do?
  • Are you tired of doing ‘stretches’ , or other exercises for your back that just don’t seem to work?
  • Are you frustrated that ‘physical therapy’, ‘chiropractic’, or acupuncture, hasn’t worked, and your pain seems to be getting worse?
  • Does it concern you that you’re gaining weight? Or unable to get in shape because exercising hurts?
  • Are you having trouble keeping up with friends and family, and missing out on your favorite activities because of pain?

If any of this sounds like you, and you are looking to finally get some relief from your back pain, …

And also find a permanent fix to your problem...

Then I assure you, you’ve come to the right place.

The number of people suffering from back problems every day is skyrocketing at a very alarming rate.

And what’s worrying to me, is I hear about so many people who suffer needlessly from back pain, and are often told:

  • They are in pain because of their ‘age’ and they need to “accept it”,
  • To take these pills (which we know are addicting and dangerous)
  • “just rest, or do some stretches”
  • You need to have back surgery (which can be dangerous, and in most cases completely unnecessary)

However…

Back Pain is much more complex than that...

...and if you are struggling to keep active, or worried about pain that isn’t going away...

And you are someone who wants nothing more than just to get back to your normal, active lifestyle...

then I assure you, you've come to the right place…

At Balance and Body Restoration, we specialize in helping people aged 45+ heal their backs naturally, and return to their normal, active lifestyles without pills and surgery.

We understand it can be difficult to know exactly what you should do when you’ve got a back injury. It can be overwhelming with the amount of options that are out there.

  • Friends tell you to try this product…
  • ...or family members tell you to go see this chiropractor,
  • …a co-worker mentions this Acupuncturist…
  • …a doctor says to try physical therapy…
  • … the “experts” on youtube tell you to try THIS stretch
  • …and meanwhile the doctors are telling you to take painkillers, and saying you might need surgery (which could be dangerous, and in most cases completely unnecessary)

It can be hard to decide to seek care, because you might be afraid of what may happen if you make the wrong decision.

We Will Help You Make Sense of it all, to put Your Mind at Ease…

Many people (doctors included) make the CRITICAL MISTAKE of only treating the “symptom” of pain, and not taking the necessary time, or energy to understand the true, “root causes” of the problem.

When it comes to something as serious as back pain…

Choosing the right provider, and getting the absolute best ‘non-invasive treatment’ could mean the difference between you getting back to your normal active lifestyle, or a life on painkillers and needing a potentially life-altering surgery.

Or goal at Balance and Body Restoration is not only to get rid of your pain, but also heal your body and give you a PERMANENT fix to your problems.

Which is why here, at Balance and Body Restoration, we have created a very comprehensive, 5-step method to not only get rid of your pain, but also fix it for good.

Step 1. Getting to know you.

We understand the frustrations out there in the medical system. It’s hard to get more than 15 minutes with a doctor, or even find a way to get the specialized care you need.

And even with most physical therapy clinics, treatments often feel rushed, impersonal, and not very focused…

Which is why our first step… before we do anything… is to get to know you better.

Because every single person who suffers from back pain is different. We all have different body types, past injuries, and different levels of pain tolerance.

At Balance and Body Restoration, we understand that every single person is unique, which is why our first step is to get a deep understanding of what is happening to you, and how you want to feel. So we can create a plan that focuses around YOU and your goals.

At Balance and Body Restoration, we have created an environment that was designed for healing.

Which starts with having an open, honest conversation about your health.

We want to make sure you’ll feel comfortable working with us, and to make sure that we will be a good fit, before we begin any form of treatment.

Step 2. Finding the root cause of the pain

It can be worrying if you’ve had back pain for a long time, and an x-ray, or an MRI might show “degenerating discs” or “disc herniations”, “bulging disc” or “stenosis”.

Many people think are unaware these problems CAN get better, even if your doctor has said you need either need surgery, or to just accept it.

How?

The body is very complex, and everything is truly ‘connected’.

We often find there are other parts of your body that may not be working ‘correctly’, and makes your back ‘compensate’ for these problems.

Examples of this may include:

  • Old injuries which create ‘compensations’ in the way you walk
  • ‘scar tissue’ and stiffness that develops from chronic inflammation causing lack of mobility in your spine
  • Poor postures that cause muscle tightness which come from sitting for too long, or driving too many hours
  • “tight hip muscles" which can pull on your back and create strain without you knowing
  • Doing stretches or exercises that might be making your condition worse

But for every single person, the ‘root cause’ may be a bit different. Because it depends on you, your injury history, your body type, and many other factors.

Our goal is to get to the bottom of the real cause of pain, eliminate it, so you can start your path to getting your mobility back, and return to the things you love the most.

Which is why we perform a full-body movement assessment.

What is a Movement Assessment?

A deep analysis of every single one of your movements, head to toe. This allows us to see very clearly what is different about YOU, and to SHOW you how everything is connected.

Our movement assessment will capture all of these potential root causes, and give you clarity, and peace of mind to know that this problem of yours CAN be fixed.

We offer these movement assessments for FREE at our “discovery visit”

Step 3. Hands-On Treatment To Help You Quickly Restore Your Mobility And Ease Pain With Movement

People are usually told to ‘stretch’, or do some ‘core exercises’ for their back pain. But the problem is, it is impossible to do safe, effective exercise when you are in pain!

And in some cases, doing the WRONG stretches or exercises can make the pain worse.

Which is why, BEFORE you start to move, or exercise it is important to alleviate the PAIN with movement.

We accomplish this through the use of “manual” therapy techniques.

What is Manual Therapy?

Manual therapy is the art of using highly scientific, targeted techniques that will help you QUICKLY restore mobility, and alleviate pain with movement BEFORE you do any form of exercise.

We use our hands, and different tools that will help you feel better by:

  • Breaking down scar tissue that built up from old injuries
  • Unlocking stiff, cranky, and inflamed joints
  • Releasing tension in ‘knots’ or ‘muscle spasms’ that create discomfort

These treatments work by creating removing the “restrictions” from areas that are chronically injured. It will increase blood flow and circulation into these areas…which will improve the flow of oxygen and promote a much healthier environment for your tissues to heal.

Our clients are usually SHOCKED to see how quickly their mobility returns just after a few short treatment sessions.

No, it’s not like “chiropractic”

While we do have the ability to perform these types of “cracking” techniques, our ‘manual therapy’ techniques are much more targeted to treat the ‘soft tissues’ which will take pressure OFF painful joints, instead of directly ‘adjusting’ an area.

We have developed our manual treatment methods from years of practice and training as Doctors of Physical Therapy. In order to give you the quickest, most effective, and safest way to restore your motion before you start to exercise.

Step 4: Restore your Mind-Body Connection

Most people make the critical mistake of believing that once the pain has gone down, that your body has healed.

Nothing further could be from the truth!

Most people don’t realize when back pain happens the connection from your body to your brain is also injured.

A lot of people wrongly assume that for back pain, all you need to do is “strengthen your core” or to “do some stretches” and think it’s enough to get rid of the pain for good…

But when there is something as serious as chronic back pain…

There is MUCH MORE to it than just doing some ‘ab exercises’ or some ‘stretches’…

When people suffer from back pain for a long time, the brain learns to cope with it by trying to ‘compensate’.

Examples of these “compensations” might be:

  • Using your hands to climb up your thighs when standing up after you’ve bent forward to pick something up from the ground
  • Increased pain, or pressure while standing in once place for too long
  • Having to use ‘momentum’ to get out of bed, or out of a chair, because of stiffness, or increased pain while trying to move after a long period of sitting
  • Constantly feeling limited in your ability to twist, or bend, or move freely without feeling the constant ‘tightness’ in your lower back
  • Or an inability to do normal exercises, or house chores because the back just doesn’t allow it to happen

Why Does This Happen?

Because the brain is trying to protect your body from doing movements it might consider harmful!

Unfortunately, most ‘exercise protocols’ you may see on youtube, or even in physical therapy, only focus on building ‘strength’, which does nothing to restore these very important mind-body connections.

At Balance and Body Restoration, our balance and exercise program offers much more than a “sheet of exercises”, or some ‘core workouts’…

We provide highly personalized, individualized, in-depth training of your movements in a safe, but also challenging (but rewarding) way.

We do this by using advanced neuroscience and exercise physiology, and give you absolute laser focused attention into every single movement that you perform.

This will allow you to QUICKLY:

  • Restore your confidence with ALL movements throughout the day that you may have been fearful, or guarded about
  • Help you return to exercising again, but with PROPER “Form, and technique’ so you don’t have to worry about hurting yourself in exercise
  • Help you develop much more ‘body awareness’ so you can “feel” when you are doing a movement improperly and correct it
  • ENJOY moving, and exercising again, instead of dreading it
  • Help you get back all the ‘little things’ that you may take for granted throughout the course of the day, like getting out of a chair, or bed without thinking, or just touching your toes for the first time in years

Step 5: Restore your Quality of Life

We work best with people who are motivated, who have a strong desire to become active again, and with people who feel like their body has so much more to offer…

But just feels stuck about what you should be doing.

If you are willing to put in a little bit of work, if you are willing to learn a bit about your body, and if you are ready to get back the quality of life you want, then you will be a great fit with us…

And you can expect to see amazing transformations.

  • A life where you can sit and drive without pain, or having to pull over every 30 minutes
  • A life where you can bend down and do house chores without being in constant pain
  • Get back to exercising again, but without any pain holding you back so you can finally get in shape again

I had a badly slipped disc, and I was on the verge of going onto an operating table. I couldn’t sit to play with my kids, I was in constant pain. But they have methods that actually work here. With the things they do, I could just feel ALL of the mobility starting to come back, and made me aware of places I felt pain that I didn’t even know existed”

I was able to watch an entire film with with my kids, and actually sit through the entire thing without having to get up, or feel like I was in chronic pain…and I can like get down on the ground with them now and actually do activities with them, and being able to pay attention to them instead of just paying attention to what's going on with my body and the pain it's causing me. It's been just a wonderful change.”

Dean, Mid 30's from Livermore

I was diagnosed with degenerative discs and stenosis in my lower back. The pain had gotten so bad I’d be in tears just trying to stand in the kitchen and cook a meal. The doctors told me they’d need to do a lumbar fusion to fuse my discs and then flip me over and then fix my stenosis…but no, no, no, I wasn’t going to let them do that.”

But by coming here, oh my gosh…it’s made a world of difference. I can move better, I can breath better, I have more energy, and the treatments they make me feel so good that just takes the pain away so I can actually ENJOY moving again. I went from barely getting out of the car because of my pain, to feeling like I could literally bounce out of here”

I’m looking forward to playing with my grandkids, and going on hikes with my husband since I feel like I’ve been having to hold him back for all these years because of my pain”

Barbara from Livermore


Diane, from San Ramon

“Kevin's intuition about the body and its function goes beyond technique. Not all physical therapist are the same and not all bodies respond the same. As he is working, he is constantly monitoring and assessing your response, looking for trigger points to alleviate and accomplish the best results. I am so appreciative of the time and talent he expends in a compassionate and careful manner! I am now an avid supporter of physical therapy. I encourage others to not wait. It does not go away and get better on its own!”

Kevin Mao

PT, DPT

Kevin, like most physical therapists, got hurt at an early age as an athlete in high school. Having gone through multiple shoulder dislocations and surgery, he had his fill of PT at a young age. Even though getting injured and having to have surgery was painful, he was curious about the fact that he actually “enjoyed going to PT”, because he was able to learn about his body in ways he was never taught! This curiosity drove him to study Kinesiology at Penn State University in 2008, and he finally graduated with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Boston University in 2011.

He originally wanted to work with pro athletes and travel with sports teams, but after several years of clinical practice, Kevin actually found his true calling was to help the aging population, those 45+, stay healthy, active, and free of painkillers and unnecessary surgeries. He is passionate about being able to use his advanced knowledge of biomechanics, physiology and neurophysiology, to take complicated orthopedic problems and turn them into simple, easy to understand solutions.

He is a pure hands-on manual therapist, receiving elite mentorship working at one of the most prestigious orthopedic rehabilitation clinics in San Francisco. He has worked side by side with world class surgeons from Stanford, SOAR clinic, and professional/Olympic level athletes.

He has also dedicated his entire career to developing effective, efficient and challenging rehabilitative exercise programs, that have a PURE emphasis on safety, and creating body awareness. He has consulted with the world’s most renowned bio-mechanists and strength-physiology experts, and has brought years of knowledge gained from experts around the world to bring it to the people right here in Dublin.

In his spare time, he loves nothing more than to relax at home with his loving wife, step daughter, and in-laws. He is also an avid basketball, boxing, and mixed martial arts fan, enjoys fishing, fantasy basketball and strategic card games.
