ABOUT

BARWIS helps people regain motor function through Neurological Reengineering -- the process of using the cutting-edge BARWIS Applied Scientific Techniques and the BARWIS Methods to increase a person’s neuromuscular activation and control. This is the core of the injury recovery programs provided by BARWIS where they help the brain to relocate, activate, and control muscle fibers. Our strength coaches are hands-on and provide applied methods of reestablishing and creating pathways to increase neural stimulus and motor control and our nonprofit First Step Foundation helps people get access to these programs.

NEUROMUSCULAR INJURIES We work with a range of injuries to the neuromuscular system including, but not limited to, spinal cord injuries, strokes, and cerebral palsy. Our comprehensive training includes addressing the physical, emotional, and psychological components of each patient. Our team of certified trainers evaluate each patient focusing on movement patterns, strength, flexibility, functional ability, balance, and tone. Active involvement of the patient and family is vital to the success of the program. SPORTS-RELATED INJURIES We help to bridge the gap between traditional physical therapy and peak performance when you are recovering from an injury. We not only assist in your injury recovery, but we also implement specifically designed, individualized programs to keep athletes of all ages and skill levels healthy by building strength, improving balance and flexibility, and increasing endurance. COMBAT INJURIES & MORE Our comprehensive combat injury recovery program focuses on assessment and treatment for service men and women who have sustained musculoskeletal injuries during deployment, military operations, and training. Our program, combined with performance training, has helped many special operations soldiers return to active duty protecting our country on the front lines, but, more importantly, helped them stay active and live with less pain. Our training programs also address general health issues such as scoliosis, carpal tunnel and more. Contact us to learn about the program!

ENTER THE PROGRAM

APPLICATION PROCESS If you are seeking help recovering from an injury or neuromuscular disorder, your experience will begin with an initial evaluation and assessment. During this time, you will receive an individualized program designed for your specific needs and abilities and you will begin your training. The initial evaluation will always have a trainer who is the designer and a second trainer who is a strength coach who will help implement the designed program. Most often, additional strength training must be done as muscles have atrophied and the neuromuscular system must adapt to the new intensities and directions it is being subjected to. This process takes time and effort – it very seldom comes quickly and easily, but the length and intensity depends completely on the situation of each individual and leaves no cookie-cutter formula for people to follow; it will be a very specific, scientifically-based training program designed for each individual with periodic re-evaluations by the program designer who will write in adaptations to the training cycles depending on the progress and needs.
WHAT TO EXPECT It may take some real time and a great deal of effort to overcome your injuries or motor difficulties, often depending on your initial condition, attitude and effort. For others, your change will be much faster, coming in with a cane and leaving it behind. Some people train 3-5 times per week, others come in for a short period and go home with specific exercises to work on their own before returning for a reevaluation. Depending on the nature of your injury and your current condition, it is possible to have you training along in a group environment just with specific, calculated exercises to assist your recovery. If you are seeking help, it is very important that each you come into our programs motivated to work hard, determined to keep a good attitude, and a steadfast belief that you will recover as your body conforms and adapts. With these character traits in combination with the world-class training, almost everybody comes through the program as a dramatically different person! *The Barwis Methods Injury Recovery Program is not designed to replace physical therapy or rehabilitation.
