The Athlete Stop
"Helping Athletes Return To The Sport They Love"
The Athlete Stop provides a group of chiropractors, physical therapists, dietitians, and medical professionals to bring athletes back to their sport. Our approach is to heal the injury from different physiological aspects. We use chiropractic and physical therapy 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. Our goal is to correct the problem, not just treat the issue!
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.
Physical therapy can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits.
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.
In addition the physical therapist will work with each patient to develop an individualized plan of care to carry out over supervised treatment in the clinic, as well as, develop a program to be carried out at home after discharge to promote wellness and allow you to return to your sport efficiently!
