Contemporary Rehabilitation Services was established in 1995 as a culmination of a long dream and quest. It was Jaya Kunnel's pursuit that brought forth the birth of a wellness center. It is her lifetime commitment to care for every one of her patients by delivering total individualized care programs for the restoration of their physical, psychological / emotional and spiritual well being.
Jaya Kunnel, CRS founder, has had over 30 years of experience in a wide range of clinical, academic and administrative aspects of Physical Therapy practice. Jaya's passion over the past 18 years has been in the area of manual therapy. She pursued numerous continuing education courses in this field, including:
In additional to her extensive training in manual therapies, Jaya's strong background in biomechanics and yoga have helped her to create a unique blend of structural and functional rehabilitation methods.
Jaya's combined approach is presented as her "ABC" approach. ABC stands for Alignment, Balance and Core Stabilization. This methodology provides a comprehensive evaluation and treatment of any neuromuscular skeletal problem by addressing the source of disfunction and immobility cause by muscular, facial, ligamentous, or bony abnormalities - be it traumatic, inflammatory or neuropathic in nature.
One of the basic tenets in biology states that structure determines function; so a compromise in structure will invariably result in a compromise in the underlying function. This is the principle guiding structural restoration using the ABC approach.
Once the hypomobile structures are identified and rectified with a fine tooth comb, and mobility is restored, specific customized exercises based on yoga principles are taught to maintain and enhance movement. In addition, posture and gait corrections are made to further maintain corrections.
CRS has served hundreds of clients over these past 18 years.
With a wide range of patients both in age and complexity of disorders, we believe “no patient is too small and no problems too big”.
