The Z Health system assesses and treats all 3 of your brain’s sensory input systems. These are your proprioceptive (muscles/joints), vestibular and visual systems. The harmonious interaction between these is crucial for optimum sports performance and resolving pain. TPC is the only clinic in the NE integrating the revolutionary Z Health techniques

The Athlete With the Best Brain Wins
Why do we even have a brain? Most people presume it’s to “perceive the world or to think,” but neuroscientist Daniel Wolpert says that assumption is completely wrong. The actual purpose of our brain is to produce adaptable and complex movements. Movement is the way we affect our environment and the world we live in. Nearly everything we do in life is a contraction of muscles: speech, gestures, walking, laughing, smiling, and athletic movements.
The Root of Movement Efficiency
The nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral, nerves, and cranial nerves. With reference to athletic training, each component works together to mediate muscular action and govern the following systems:
Cardio-Respiratory Training (aerobic and anaerobic cardio)
Musculoskeletal Training (resistance training)
Endocrine/Metabolism/Fat Loss Adaptations
The purpose of the nervous system is to create movement; therefore, the more efficiently it functions, the higher the quality of movement it produces. Movement efficiency is rooted in coordination, accuracy, and balance. Developing these qualities is the key to unlocking athletic performance, promoting resiliency, and preventing injury.
The nervous system has many “loops,” or neural pathways, to create, control, and coordinate movement. In this video series, Dr. Eric Cobb identifies three brain loops that are responsible for facilitating efficient movement.
We will discuss the loops in our next post.
