Principled Spine Assessment

 Tommy understands and believes the simple physiologic truth that there is no element that heals us from outside the body and when the core connection of brain, brain stem and spinal cord to every cell, tissue and organ is not compromised there is no limit to the human potential of any patient no matter their stage of life--infant, mother-to-be, professional athlete or senior. Every prospective patient that walks through the door at Tommy John Performance and Healing Center receives a definitive health history interview and is given a thorough examination. The resulting findings guide Tommy to precisely identify any interference in the spine, the body has created to protect the system at that time. A care plan is then created specifically to encompass all of the individual's life performance needs.


It is important to understand that an optimally functioning nervous system is the an important aspect to the foundation of an individual's health and should be assessed in addressing other health factors. Belief in something greater than ourselves, purpose, relationships, sleep, body movements, natural light exposure, breathing exercises, and real food nourishment cannot profoundly have an impact on the body's systems if the human body in a state of defense and protection creates an area of diminished connection to specific cells and tissues through the spine and body back to the brain.  It is this state of defense and neurological healing response that needs to be the initial area of focus for each participant.  Regardless of what a new patient first presents with regarding pain or a previously diagnosed condition, that is no longer their identity with the Tommy John Anti-System of Rehab and Human Performance. This anti-system identifies in regards to their respective diagnosis or symptom pattern the specific neurological, physical, and emotional conditions that are as unique to an individual as their fingerprint.

Identifying the Injury Fingerprint

The Tommy John System of Rehab and Human Performance specifically includes:


  • Principled and specific neurological care to locate the individual healing responses the body has placed within the vertebral column in an effort to protect and defend the system from the lifestyle choices we have incurred over our lifetime.   

  • Neurological/postural/muscle test diagnostic evaluation along with infrared thermographic analysis to measure each individuals' neurological integrity. 

  • Tests that assess strength endurance, tissue resilience, emotional capacity, competitive readiness, compensatory and fatigue patterns...basically what does the body do when it begins to feel a threat and there is a life or death scenario present. Fancy talk for "what can your system handle and what happens when it tries to survive."

  • Basic, fundamental, individualized training protocols utilizing the highest level of neurological input.  When the candidate has evolved and adapted to beginner levels of training they are eventually moved to a more advanced system of training utilizing bodyweight with the goal to restore the individual back to a postural and neuromuscular state they experienced at 3-4 years.

  • As ancillary additions to the system and not any less important are meditation, sun exposure, parasympathetic breathing patterns and a focus on proper sleep/rest/naps--all integral to the eventual ultimate good health, healing and performance of each individual receiving care at Tommy John Performance and Healing Center.
