Our approach is to heal the injury from different physiological aspects. We use massage and chiropractic for the soft tissue and muscles, diet to make sure you the body has the nutrition to heal quickly and properly, and the medical approach for tough cases that do not respond to conservative treatment.

CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT

 

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.

INJURY REHAB

Injury Rehab is the process in which we take an injured joint or soft tissue and make it stronger by doing specific exercises.  We like to start this process as soon as possible to get the patient/athlete back in the game.  This also includes balance exercises that will help not only strengthen the joint or tissue but help neurologically with the injury.​

 

MASSAGE THERAPY

 

Sports massage therapy has numerous benefits in sports conditioning. By targeting muscle-tendon junctions, sports massage therapy provides relief to muscles that are overusedand stressed from aggressive or repetitive movements. The main focus of sports massage therapy isprevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. It is detailed, focused, and anatomically specific to target and correct unique physical issues. Sports massage therapy can be used to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event.

GAIT ANALYSIS 

Abnormal gait patterns (the way you walk) and muscle imbalances can lead to pain starting at your foot, knee, hip or back and lead to poor sport performance.  Using a computer and video system captured of you, we can then analyze your mechanics. This analysis will help us identify any muscle imbalances or biomechanical problems that can be leading to pain or diminished function.  Sometimes orthotics would be used to help stabilize your gait.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE



Myofascial Release and FDM are 2 type of manual therapy that target the fascia and muscles of the body.  They are used to help increase flexibility and range of motion in the soft tissue.  The treatment is intense and may lead to bruising but is effective in increasing speed of recovery.  Usually after one treatment a patient will see decrease in pain and increase in movement.

MANUAL THERAPY

 

Manual Therapy is a type of therapy that practitioners use when assessing musculo-skeletal issues.  There is many different types of manual therapies that can be used.  Here at this clinic we use Myofascial release, Fascial Distoration Model (FDM), manipulation of spinal and extremity segments.

Physical Therapy 

 

PT’s examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques such as manual based treatments, therapeutic exercise and activities, modalities, and education to promote improved Range of Motion, Flexibility, Strength, Stabilization, Muscle Imbalances, and Proprioception. Therapy goals include increasing the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, prevent further injury, and return to sport or prior level of function.
