Resilience Training

With the recent and evolving situation surrounding the Corona Virus, Portland Integrative Physical Therapy is now offering virtual consults for Resilience Training in the effort to still provide care while maintaining effective social distancing. Please contact with any questions about this service.


Resilience training is the middle ground between rehabilitation and pure strength training. It is a guided process for individuals with chronic or reoccurring musculoskeletal problems that limit their ability to consistently pursue regular exercise.

For some of us, attempts at an active lifestyle to the degree we desire has been difficult. For others, impossible.

Traditional rehabilitation in our health care system often times seeks to reduce the symptoms, but not address the underlying problem. As a result many people are forced to avoid activity for lack of better options.

More often that not it is not what you do, but how you do it.

If you have chronic pain or reoccurring problems that prevent you from regular, rigorous activity then Resilience Training is for you.

Common conditions that are addressed are:

Chronic or reoccurring back, shoulder, neck, hip, knee, ankle pain or instability.

Chronic muscular tension, stiffness or lack of flexibility.

Poor balance.

Exercise induced asthma.


The process relies heavily on the principles of the Postural Restoration Institute, which acknowledges both the inherent asymmetry to the human body, as well as the common compensatory patterns often seen. Essentially; we all twist, turn and lock out in predictable ways, and eventually it can contribute to problems.

As these compensatory patterns are managed, progression to a variety of strength and fitness activities is taken on, integrating this newly acquired body-awareness.

How far your strength and fitness is progressed is up to you; this process is collaborative and the end goals are yours.

Give enough time and effort, many great things are possible.


All sessions are an hour in length, costing $97. Beyond the initial session, a five session bundle can be purchased for $445.

How many sessions will be necessary, and how frequent they will need to occur is dependent on your individual situation and goals.
