Chiropractic adjustment is specifically intended to correct vertebral subluxations. Spinal manipulation has documented use as far back as Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians. The intention of a chiropractic adjustment is to affect or correct the alignment, motion and/or function of a vertebral joint, which in turn increase range of motion and decrease restrictions in movement. We want the body to be in proper alignment to help with proper biomechanics that help prevent injuries.
The Athlete Stop's physical therapists can assist you in rehabilitation from a sport or exercise injury which may include functional exercises, manual therapy, and/or therapeutic modalities. Additionally, general acute and chronic orthopedic conditions for patients of all ages are also treated. Our therapists can design a rehabilitation program specific to each patient and athlete’s recovery needs, by addressing:
- Core stabilization and strength
- Proprioception, balance, and coordination
- Sports injury prevention
The Athlete Stop’s dietitians provide nutrition counseling and nutrition assessments to help determine an athlete’s specific nutrition needs based on body type, sport, metabolic rate, and short- and long-term performance goals.
