Pain, Injury, Mobility Issues
When physical therapy, chiropractor, pain medicine, massage, stretching, fascia work, acupuncture, or anything else didn’t work, it’s time to come see a Muscle System Specialist. I’m going to help you move pain-free again in a way unlike anything else you’ve ever tried.

“Jay is amazing. After a car accident my wife and I started working with Jay after seeing his post on Facebook. I had been to chiropractors, pain management docs, and massage therapist. I got temporary relief but nothing last. After seeing Jay just one time I noticed a lasting relief, within two weeks I was 70% better.”

“For a year and a half, I suffered from sciatic nerve pain. Within 2 weeks, my sciatic pain decreased dramatically. He has since moved me into a weightlifting regimen at the gym, and my sciatic nerve pain is headed towards non-existence!”
Dr. Robert Sadaty, MD
“Unfortunately, I have, and continue to be, somewhat of a weekend warrior. As a result, I have sustained many injuries over the years…After only about 5 or 6 sessions, problems that I thought would be with me forever, were all of the sudden reversed, which was nothing less than stunning to me.”

What is a Certified Muscle System Specialist™?
An CMSS™ is a practitioner who uses a unique thought process and science-based technical skill set to address your issues with poor movement, muscle tightness, and muscle and joint pain. CMSS™ practitioners take the time to carefully identify aspects of your muscle system where its quality has been decreased, identify opportunities for improvement in areas with low quality motor control, and provide you with the education your body requires to complete and maintain these improvements to your system. The following are the CMSS™’s objectives for positively impacting our clients:
- Identify the areas of low-quality movement, muscle tightness, and joint discomfort
- Address and restore low quality movements and positions with precision exercises to allow for higher-quality muscle function.
- Decrease sensations of discomfort in muscles and joints by improving muscle contraction and control
- Teach you self-directed exercises and techniques that you can do on your own to give you control over your health, keep your independence, and assure your success.
What types of problems can the CMSS help with?
The CMSS treats people, not problems. The types of problems people come to us are outlined here.
What are the credentials of the Symmetry Exercise Clinic professionals?
You can find each practitioners’ credentials, history and experience here: Team Credentials.
How long does it take to get results with the CMSS?
That really does depend on your personal history and confounding factors. Typically you will begin to see changes immediately but we should have a good idea if our service is working for you within several visits depending on the nature of your situation. It may take longer – the body is extremely complicated and is an excellent compensator! It will take less time to improve your health if your physiology is placed in the right position.
Is working with an CMSS™ similar to Physical Therapy?
While the work of a Certified Muscle System Specialist™ and the work of a physical therapist may look similar, the philosophy and thought process differ greatly.
Physical therapy generally focuses on a patient’s complaint of pain or tightness, and as a result the therapy is almost always performed on or around the area of the patient’s pain. The physical therapy approach often subscribes to the philosophy of “local problem, local solution”
A Certified Muscle System Specialist™ sees the body as one interconnected, integrated, and interacting system. This philosophy provides the underpinnings for our approach.
Instead of focusing directly on the part where you feel pain, our work focus is on your control. Any area of the body with low-quality muscular control can contribute to a problem with movement, pain, tightness, or discomfort you are experiencing in any other area of their body. As we help you improve control throughout your system, we can elicit a significant, positive effect on how your entire body feels and moves. Our clients are often surprised that improving muscle control in an area can improve pain they were experiencing at a different location of their body!
We take a full-body approach to solving control issues throughout your system!
Do you take insurance?
We are not covered by insurance because insurance companies used codes for billing and codes require protocols. We don’t use protocols. We treat every single person individually.
Some company Health Savings Accounts (HSA’s) and wellness plans may allow our services to be reimbursed. This can be evaluated on a case by case basis.
How long has the company been in business?
