"Optimizing health and wellness to better the whole of society."
We have made it our mission to help people when they encounter stress in their life. Stress shows up in many forms which in some cases is unavoidable. No matter the complexity of the condition, stress can be traced back to one of the three common denominators of stress: mental, physical, or chemical. These three pathways converge and summate into eliciting an autonomic response in the body through the excitation of the sympathetic nervous system which leads to the Twist.
Our Core Values.
We help you, fix you.
Our mission is to help you feel better, move better, and live every day to your fullest potential.As the old proverb states, if you give person a fish, you'll feed them for a day; if you teach a person to fish, you'll feed them for a lifetime.Our motto is, if you teach a person how to use the U-Fix, you'll untwist him for a lifetime. With this in mind, Dr. Kiernan developed the U-Fix tool and self-applied method from decades of hands on clinical experience and scientific research.
We Actively stretch.
In order to achieve a true lasting change in tissue length, you need to actively stimulate the body to produce new elongated chains of collagen fibers which over time, leads to an increase in tissue length. This process only occurs through active stretching and before the invention of the U-Fix, the only way to facilitate this process was by going to a physical therapist or chiropractor. Anything self-massage involving passive stretching will only provide temporary relief and not correct the underlying issue.
Dr. Jim Kiernan DC. MS.
At a young age Dr. Kiernan knew he wanted to help people. His journey all started one weekend after his father, Mr. Kiernan, threw his back out and decided to go to the local Chiropractor. Having witnessed his dad go from being in extreme pain to virtually pain free, this singular experience inspired a 35-year career in helping people feel better. Throughout his career, Dr. Kiernan tested several treatment methods, published scientific research, and read endless volumes of texts, all of which have contributed to his understanding of the human body. He has worked with a wide array of patient populations ranging from professional athletes to professional heroes (FDNY/NYPD). With his hands on clinical experience, Dr. Kiernan designed a self-treatment method which is now referred to as the “U-Fix-Method”.
The significance of having someone be able to treat themselves ties into this company’s mission which is to help as many people as humanly possible. He realized that the only way to achieve that goal, is to help YOU help YOURSELF. It is from this core value, that the U-Fix-Method and U-Fix-tool was created.
