Synergy 1-on-1 & Group Classes
When you join a Synergy program, you’ll become fitter, stronger, healthier, and less likely to re-injure yourself in the future. They’re also really fun, if we may say so ourselves.
Synergy’s Movement Therapy
Virtual 1-on-1 Movement Therapy Sessions are available for booking with our Movement Therapy Director. A video of your home exercises can be sent to you after your session. Filmed through Zoom Health Care and Embodia Academy, your privacy protected video will be available for viewing on our booking system, Jane App.
We have been running our Movement Therapy Group Rehab Classes since opening the clinic in 2011. We transitioned our most popular programs, Back Care and Neck & Shoulder, to video in 2018. Synergy’s Movement Therapy Group Rehab Classes are currently on hold due to Covid-19. Back Care and Neck & Shoulder have been developed into 4 week programs available for purchase through Embodia Academy.

The Story Behind Our Movement Therapy Programs
Dr. Awan and Riki Richter began collaborating in 2004 and since opening Synergy Sports Medicine in 2011 have focused on an outcomes based rehabilitation model we call “Movement Based Rehabilitation”. Using our combined thirty five years of experience in the field we incorporated a strong exercise component that we felt was lacking in conventional rehabilitation programs.
Synergy’s Movement Therapy Programs
As part of this model, we decided to explore the concept of using rehabilitative classes to teach exercises. Dr. Raza Awan collected clinical patterns of deficits found with specific conditions based on his experience with patients who did not improve with conventional rehab care. Riki Richter programmed exercises that targeted these deficits. Synergy offers Movement Therapy Programs to address various musculoskeletal components.
Synergy’s Movement Therapy 1-on-1 Sessions
Our highly trained movement therapy teachers receive in-house continuing education based on current research surrounding common conditions, exercise prescription specific to that condition and contraindications to avoid. You are in capable hands. Our movement therapy teachers will develop a home exercise program specific to your condition. In order for you to self- manage, we teach you about your own anatomy, how it works and how you can help yourself.
Synergy’s Movement Therapy Programs Group Rehab Classes
Each program addresses common deficits hindering recovery and exercises are based on sound biomechanics and evidence-based protocols. These programs teach functional embodied biomechanics and empower the patient to self manage their injury. Once learned, these exercises can be incorporated into a daily routine as preventative and strengthening measures, or for pre- and post-surgical recovery rehab and used as pre-habilitation.
The programs include: Back Care, Hip & Knee, Neck & Shoulder, Foot & Ankle, and ComputerFit. Designed as a consecutive 4 week series to be repeated at least twice and accompanied by a home exercise booklet or videos.
Our Vision: Empowering Through Movement
Our vision at Synergy is to build a spire of excellence in continuing education and to develop a movement vernacular accessible to both the medical and movement communities in order to proactively improve the health of patients.
