A Protocol defines a set of procedures or steps to be followed for the accomplishment of a given task.

Pro To Col Sport Systems is a sports rehabilitation clinic that uses a systematic approach to get active people out of chronic pain and back in life’s playing field. We have a team of rehabilitation specialists that use an integrative approach across all disciplines. We work with the client to create a systematic PROTOCOL of manual therapy, rehabilitation and training that empowers them to understand how to be pain-free. Our #1 goal is that the client is heard, helped, educated and empowered.

Over time, bad posture and overuse patterns eventually cause injury or breakdown to the body. Here at Pro To Col Sport Systems, we educate the client to reduce pain and injury through focusing on the body’s foundational firing patterns.  Movement, whether correct or incorrect, becomes subconscious. Our job is to focus the client’s awareness on what to do to create new patterns of movement that activate the correct muscle groups, to make them stronger, reduce pain and prevent future injuries.

When our clients walk in the doors at Pro To Col Sport Systems, they can expect a personalized and tailored experience that combines our systems and protocols to make the client the best they can be. We want the client to leave us feeling heard, helped, empowered, and educated, and confident to correct their movement in their daily life, movement and athletic activity.

Over the years she has moved all over the United States from Spokane Washington, Flagstaff Arizona, and Houston Texas, just to name a few. Most recently she came to visit San Diego from Albuquerque New Mexico, to drop her oldest daughter off that is in the Navy, and she decided not to leave. 

Misty has a very strong customer service and sales background. She spent the first 16 years of her career in the jewelry industry. Her main job was to go into stores that were problem stores and fix them. Whether it was with staffing, sales, or inventory Misty would work her way through each store get it up and running and profitable. After many 120-hour work weeks and missing way too many family events, Misty decided to use her sales skills, organizational skills, and her outgoing personality to enter the world of Real Estate. Misty spent 7 years as a realtor in New Mexico. Working mostly with first time home buyers and military families who were relocating Misty enjoyed helping people find their dream homes.

Never in a million years did Misty think this is the industry she would end up working in and becoming so passionate about. She loves our clients and loves to celebrate their wins; she is so compassionate and genuinely cares about the people we are treating and their progress. She sees the work we do here at Pro To Col Sports Systems and she see the amazing results our team has with our clients and she could not imagine working anywhere else.  

When Misty is not at work you will find her at the beach, or at the pool, she is a water girl and loves to spend as much time as she can enjoying. She loves the outdoors and is looking forward to finding all the amazing places to hike in the San Diego area. She is always looking for a place to go so if you see her tell her your favorite place to hike. Misty loves to dance and sing; you may even catch her singing and dancing when you walk in our office. Do not let her dance skills intimidate you.
