THANKS FOR THE BKE TUNEUP!

I am thankful to be able to come home in the offseason and get the best care from Dave and Athlete Engineering. After a few sessions of BKE, I feel amazing! I wish the NFL took this good a care of us but they don’t. I highly recommend athletes of all sports come to see Dave to get to their best.”

– Theo Riddick, running back for the Detroit Lions

OVERCOME ADVERSITY AND EXCEL!

“Dave, THANK YOU a billion!!!! I truly can not thank you enough for everything you did for me this summer. I really don’t even think I would have a chance at senior season if it wasn’t for you, your amazing knowledge, and your unmatched skill at what you do. You have been such a blessing” – Sarah Price

THE SPINE SITS IN THE PELVIS

THE SPINE SITS IN THE PELVIS

This teen athlete’s back has been hurting and it was no wonder when looking at his pelvis and spine. In this pic you can see how a scoliosis has formed because of the misaligned pelvis. The spine sits in the pelvis. Imagine if you sat on a chair that was uneven. You would be sitting on an angle and would have to twist and rotate your spine in the opposite direction to keep upright. You would naturally create a scoliosis effect in order to not fall over.
So the first step in fixing the lower back is to make sure it has a solid foundation with an aligned pelvis.

UNILATERAL SHOULDER “WEAKNESS”

UNILATERAL SHOULDER “WEAKNESS”

Check out how this athlete’s left shoulder strength improved in one session by realigning her BioKinetic Energy field.
What causes a “weakness” in a limb?
A muscle contracts when the nervous system tells it to. If the nervous system does not deliver a good message, the muscle will not contract forcefully. The flow of the nervous system can be dampened from chemical inefficiencies, structural misalignments, and a disempowered consciousness.

KINISIO TAPE – LOOKS COOL BUT…

KINISIO TAPE – LOOKS COOL BUT…

When an athlete walks on to the field or court wearing kinesiotape, people take notice. It looks like they have just had some special, cutting edge therapy. But does it really work?

From my experience, it usually doesn’t do much and there are typically more effective methods of fixing the injury. For example, this track athlete had been experiencing posterior knee pain for several weeks. Her chiropractor kinesiotaped the knee in order to “support” it. However, the pain persisted.

KIDS AND CONCUSSIONS

KIDS AND CONCUSSIONS

Unfortunately, concussions amongst kids in athletics is on the rise today and the injury can have devastating long term effects if not dealt with properly. The usual advice – rest, no stimulation, avoid bright light, no electronics, fish oils and some other nutrients – is good. However, we have found that the following BKE approaches greatly increase the rate of recovery.

PHYSICAL THERAPY VS BKE INTEGRATION

PHYSICAL THERAPY VS BKE INTEGRATION

If you go to an average physical therapy session, you may get a few minutes of personal attention, followed by electric stim (which usually doesn’t work), and then an unsupervised exercise program with bands and other gadgets (which usually does nothing). The problem is that physical therapy protocols are dictated by what insurance will pay for, not by what the patient actually needs to get better.

LATERAL AND MEDIAL HAMSTRING IMBALANCES

LATERAL AND MEDIAL HAMSTRING IMBALANCES

Often we tend to think of the hamstrings as one muscle and train them as such. However, this is a mistake because there can be a big difference in flexibility and strength amongst the three. For example, BioKinetic Athlete @iron_fit_rd has a strength deficit in her medial hamstrings – semitendinosis and semimembranosus, compared to the lateral hamstring – the bicep femoris. On the left, her feet are pointed inward, stretching and challenging the bicep femoris. On the right, her feet are pointed outward, challenging the medial hamstrings. You can see her lumbar round in this one.

MOBILITY OR LOADING ISSUE?

MOBILITY OR LOADING ISSUE?

Check out how BKE Integration helped this athlete with her ability to arch the lower back while in hip flexion. What worked? Not stretching or any flexibility or mobility or soft tissue techniques. It came down to training her hamstrings to “load” or contract and stabilize her pelvis while moving into forward pelvic tilt.
If you have a bio mechanical issue that appears to be lack of flexibility, it might not be your flexibility at all, but instead a “loading” issue….

OVER 300 PHYSICAL THERAPY SESSIONS WITHOUT RESULTS, THEN BKE

OVER 300 PHYSICAL THERAPY SESSIONS WITHOUT RESULTS, THEN BKE

I thought my high school sports career was over when I had severe knee problems in my sophomore year. I had over 300 physical therapy sessions and my knee situation actually got worse. We heard about Dave from my sports medicine doctor and made an appointment. Dave did a thorough bio-mechanical assessment and explained what he found and how he could fix it. Needless to say we were skeptical but we gave it a shot. In less than two months I was starting football practice and went on to not only play basketball in high school, but live my dream of playing in college. I still play today and rely on Dave to keep me healthy. I recommend anyone with a seemingly unsolvable situation to see Dave and try his BKE method.

BKE APLIED TO SPORT SPECIFIC

BKE APLIED TO SPORT SPECIFIC

At Athlete Engineering, we assess each athlete by breaking down the fundamental needs of their sport and position and compare those needs to the individual’s current condition. Not only do we look at the athlete’s structure and movement, but also their biology and state of consciousness (BioKinetic Energy). From this assessment we can determine where the priorities are for optimization.
