I came to Foundation Performance (FP) because of a rotator cuff/bicep tear from a fall while skiing.  PT was recommended before a go at a surgery.  Well, six months of hands-on work on the shoulder negated the need for surgery, and I regained full range of motion.  I was thrilled.  I believe the key was the hands-on therapy and the attention to detail provided by Mike Silva and his team.  They didn’t just throw a hot pack on my shoulder and give me exercises to do at home.  They used their hands.  Thanks to everyone at FP.

*”Michael Silva is hands down not only the most educated medical professional I have ever had the privileged of working with, but he is also one of the most genuine, down to earth human beings I’ve met. Mike has saved me on numerous occasions in my athletic career when I injured myself and has healed me back to life in time to compete in some pretty big Ultra Marathons and Adventure Races. Mike is not one of these medical guys that just gives up. He’s devoted to his trade and one chat with him is like spending hours with others. He has a plethora of unique treatments and besides just healing the injury, Mike is #1 in my books when it comes to preventing injuries as well. Whether you need him for healing or for prevention, you will simply NOT find another person quite like him. I’m honored to have Mike in my corner”

* “My daughter and I trained throughout the summer with Thiago and Carla at their Warren location. Their time, patience and focus on detailed movements have made such an incredible impact on both of our lives. My daughter has since return to her University Cross Country and Track teams to train; yet she has still found a way to Skype into a class with Carla on occasion.  As for me it has been a constant battle of injuries over the past four years.  It has been 4 months since I joined the strength classes and I have been healthy and getting stronger.  I recently ran my quickest 5 K in over four years.  Thank You FOUNDATIONperformance, I look forward to my fitness future with a renewed sense of excitement.”

* “As competitive triathlete, I rely on the Team at Foundation Performance to keep me healthy year-round. When I had collarbone surgery, Chris used his cycling experience to bring me back to full-strength in time to place 27th out of 2800 competitors at Ironman Mont Tremblant. Now that I am dealing with some shoulder impingement, Kourtney has stepped up to lend her swimming expertise to help me improve my form as we continue our rehab. I can honestly say there’s no way I’d make it to the starting line, much less the Ironman Hawaii finish line, without the support of Chris, Kourtney and the countless others at Foundation.  Thanks Team!”
