Derek Nielsen bio- I am a physical therapist located in Durham, North Carolina, and the owner of Kaizen Physical Therapy. I specialize in focusing on treating movement dysfunctions over symptoms. I believe this is the reason why my patients get such superior results when others can't help them. Specifically, pain typically can be boiled down to one of two movement dysfunctions: 

1. Tight joints or muscles 

2. Weak joints or muscles. 

I have found through continuous testing that the area which is in pain is often NOT the area where the root cause of the pain exists. This is especially true if there was not a traumatic injury. In other words, if the pain came on gradually over time and there is no known exact incident one can attribute to when the pain began — this person is likely dealing with pain that is attributable to compensation. The area in pain is hurting because it's compensating for another area that is stiff/tight, or weak. My treatment approach involves diagnosing the entire body for stiffness and weakness (i.e. movement dysfunctions) — not symptoms. By correcting these dysfunctions, pain begins to improve. Typically, this is true regardless of arthritis, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, etc...
