About Sports Chiropractic

Our trained staff of sports chiropractors have taken numerous post-graduate courses to specialize in sports chiropractic and sports rehabilitation. Essentially, the entire body is analyzed from head to toe to detect the cause of the injury. Active Release Technique (ART) and Graston Technique are the primary soft tissue rehabilitation treatments rendered to treat an injury.

When soft tissue (muscle, ligaments, tendons, fascia, etc.) is injured, scar tissue builds up on that injured area the same way the scar tissue builds on our skin. The unfortunate thing is that scar tissue does not have the elasticity as normal tissue resulting in a lack of mobility at the injured area. Our sports chiropractic protocols are designed to break up any residual scar tissue to get you fast and immediate results.
