About Scott Frost

I work within a sub-specialty of the kinesiology field dedicated to treating the muscle system. My specialty is solving complex muscle problems that restrict movement and limit performance. 

Growing up I was a top regional junior tennis player until a rotator cuff surgery took me down at 14 years old. Later on, I became a professional ballet dancer in my 20’s as an alternative to my professional tennis aspirations.

However, I was frustrated by the alarming number of injuries I was experiencing in spite of my dedication to rehab and training. I had long had a passion for mechanics & biology, and this mounting injury toll pushed me into the field of biomechanics.

My purpose became to help young athletes and adults overcome the problems no one could solve for me. This dedication led to the development of a radically different approach to working with the muscle system, which I called Muscle System Anchoring©.

Education


University of Texas at Austin

UT+Emblem.jpeg

Master of Science, Kinesiology

Concentration: Biomechanics & Motor Control

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement. My concentration was in the field of biomechanics and motor control. Biomechanics is the hybrid mix of physics, mechanical engineering, anatomy and physiology. The aim is to understand the architecture of the human anatomy as it relates to stresses and strains, stability and movement freedom.  Motor control is the term used to describe how muscle fibers are accessed and called to contract by the nervous system.

University of Pennsylvania

Bachelor of Science, Neuroscience

Neuroscience is a branch of biology that adds a deep dive study into all things nervous system. Because everything begins and ends with the communication systems of the body, getting muscles to respond or to chill out is only possible with a firm grasp of the electrical systems of the body.

Post-Grad Studies, Human Anatomy & Physiology

There is no greater window into understanding and knowing the human body than seeing with your own eyes the inside of an actual body and feeling real muscle. The year spent in a human anatomy lab working on real cadavers was one of the most enlightening and exciting studies of my life. It was exciting and transformative in my ability to help repair the broken bodies of those who sought my help. I added another year doing more work in physiology after that year of anatomy to spend more time becoming intimate with the “body” of information.

Scott’s Injury Story

My struggles with pain and injury began for me when I was just a teenager. I was on the rise in the ranks as a junior tennis player in New Jersey. Around the time I was 13, I started to have pain and weakness in my hitting arm. The pain started in my shoulder but soon started a chain reaction of injuries into my elbow, low back and neck. I desperately sought answers bouncing from one professional to another, but no one could fix the problems.

Eventually, I went the route of exploratory surgery, as my MRI could not, at the time, give a detailed enough view of the inner joint. The surgery found some tearing in my cartilage and a chipped bone bruise along the shoulder ridge. Although the surgery went well in the cleanup, the rehab was inadequate at best. I was never able to recover any real capability close to that of my former level of performance. My physical and emotional struggles lasted over a year and by the time I turned 15, my injuries had put an end to my collegiate and professional aspirations in tennis.

Years later, my athletic pursuits took on a second life as I began a serious study of contemporary ballet and modern dance with Koresh Dance Company in Philadelphia. After graduating from UPenn, I was accepted into the professional program of the Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet.  I took to ballet/modern dance quickly and began a career as a dancer in the Philadelphia area. However, I found himself constantly falling prey to injury. Over the 4 years of my professional dance life, I spent much of it recovering from injuries or performing through terrible pain. It was a second chance stolen again by a betrayal of my body.

I retired from dance had tried everything to fix the mounting pile of injuries. After some time, I got fed up with going in circles. Rather than continuing exercises that seemed only to exacerbate the problem, he took a different approach to recovery that focused on finding the actual root cause of muscle tightness and weakness and then solving them.

The utter defeat at that time, however, would eventually push me down a winding path toward solving problems of the muscular system and to understand how our muscles worked with our brain to move our skeleton to do great things (or fail to do so). And now, I draw upon my personal experience to give young athletes the chance that I never had all those years ago.

About Lauren Frost

After a stint as an actress in my 20’s, I spent over 15 years in advertising and account management for various companies and organizations.

Yet, all along the way, I never truly felt at home in the corporate world. Later on in my 30’s, I met Scott and discovered a passion for health and fitness.

This was quite an unexpected life change. You see, growing up I did not play a sport; nor was I encouraged to pursue an active lifestyle beyond reading books. However, fitness gave me the necessary confidence to go in a different direction.

After much soul searching, and lots of learning, I was led to my calling as an entrepreneur. For a number of years, I ran a workout- and nutrition-focused website for women. Then a few years ago, I realized that I could take Corrective Muscle Solutions to the next level and took over all business operations.

Lauren’s Injury Story


My personal injury story led to a bizarre twist of fate that introduced me to Scott. Because up until then I had rarely stepped inside of a gym. I had never played a sport or been on a team … unless you count being picked last for gym class.

Growing up I was chubby and rather uncoordinated. I did not have natural athletic ability and preferred more solitary indoor activities like reading. As a teenager and in my 20s I would occasionally pop in a workout tape or visit a gym to do some cardio, but that was really all. That all radically changed when I turned 30.

One snowy and icy New Jersey afternoon, my mom and I set out to go visit my aunt in New Hope, Pennsylvania which was about an hour away. My mom wanted to turn around immediately, but I assured her she was worrying needlessly and I was fine driving. Just a few minutes after we merged onto the highway our car began to slip and slide on the ice. I can still remember my mom calming telling me to “just hold onto the wheel” as I began to get upset. The car was spinning out of control and an 18-wheeler truck hit us from behind and pushed us off the road into the ravine.

Long story short, the car was totaled, we were picked up and everything seemed ok. But a few days later I remember sitting at my desk at work feeling horrible pain in my low back. And so my journey to feeling well again began. I found a chiropractor and the regular adjustments did help. I began to feel concerned about the persistent pain I was feeling in my arm which he thought to be related to my rotator cuff. His instructions to me were simple. I was way too weak at the age of 30, and I needed to start lifting some weights to build up muscle. I panicked a bit. I never felt really comfortable at a gym. I also usually hurt myself doing those workout videos even with the “lightweights.” Upon the suggestion of a co-worker, I went to join a gym that was local to our office park. When I signed up I decided to be bold and spring for the “training package” figuring I could use some help figuring out this weight stuff.

I was assigned to two different female trainers who left the gym within a matter of weeks. Who knew the training world was so fickle? I was a little annoyed about the situation and did the unthinkable and asked for a refund on my training package. The manager of the gym called me to tell me about a new trainer at the gym, a guy, of all things who she was convinced I’d hit it off with and even offered me a free session to test out the waters. Well, I figured I had nothing to lose since I knew my chances of a refund were moot. However, I was very nervous that it could potentially be the cute new blonde trainer I had seen around the gym. And … of course, it was. Scott had retired from dancing and was home in NJ for a few months to figure out his next career move.

Since I met Scott he was trying to solve the mystery of my right shoulder. He read every article he could find on shoulder exercises. He bought new programs. Even when we would make headway it would be good for a few weeks, and then relapse to the point that it was hard to reach back to put on a jacket. That cycle continued for a bit until I eventually had an MRI which showed a small calcium deposit on my right shoulder. I was advised to not have surgery by my orthopedist and try to live with the restriction.

As Scott dove further into solving complex muscle problems, I had reached out 80% mobility in my shoulder. I had accepted it would be a lifelong limitation. Late last year, I woke up in horrible pain to the point that I couldn’t move my arm. X-Rays and an MRI showed that the calcium deposit had most likely grown and immediate surgery was recommended. During my operation,  a 1-inch calcium deposit was removed, there was significant repair needed due to a tear on my rotator cuff and my bursa sack had essentially blown up.

My surgery was successful, and Scott’s rehab has made it so that I am recovering at record time. Of course, it’s normal to think I’m partial because he’s my husband. But I totally believe Scott has an incredible gift and ability to see beyond the obvious and heal people even with the most complex muscle problems. My experience of knowing him and all the people he has helped makes me truly able to say that this therapy is the only thing you’ll need.
