Evidence-Based Health Care For Optimal Health & Functioning

What’s your Motivation?

I don’t ever blog/post personal insight or feelings, however I’m coming up onto an anniversary and have been reflecting on all the great people I have been able to meet and treat since starting on this journey. From old friends to complete strangers, people I have looked up to my entire life and complete strangers alike, you have all trusted in me and put your well-being in my hands (literally and figuratively). I want to thank you for allowing me to help you and for helping me grow as a person and a professional.

I am blessed to be able to do what I do on a daily basis. It’s not a matter of WHAT I do, but rather WHY I do it. The answer is simple. I do what I do because there is no better feeling to me than having a patient leave my office feeling better than when they came in. NOTHING! It’s the greatest way to start my day and the greatest way to end my day. To be able to help people feel better and better every day and to see the change it makes in their lives is priceless. To see the “lightbulb” go off in a pain patient’s head when I explain what is really causing their pain and to see the look of relief on their face when I can offer them better options bring such joy to my day, everydayThat’s the best motivation.

It’s not all rainbows and unicorns, mind you. The hardest part of my practice is reaching out to the ones who aren’t in pain. The one’s who think that since there is no manifestation of symptoms that everything is ok. My wish is to have these individuals (especially our young, active population) assessed. The reason for these quick screenings is to help us locate and isolate possible inefficiencies in muscles systems that slowly contribute to an injury. There is ALWAYS a “straw that broke the camel’s back” moment. I see it everyday.


You only have one body, it’s your temple, your vehicles, and parts can’t be easily replaced. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Don’t wait until the pain and dysfunction is keeping you from playing the sport you love. From holding and playing with your children. From working and paying your bills. Don’t look back and say “I should have taken better care when I was younger” or “I should have made the time”.


Yours in health,

Dr. Rashaad
