Our primary goal is to take the time to explain why you are having pain then relieve the symptoms as soon as possible. During your first visit, you will receive a thorough functional examination that will guide an accurate diagnosis.
Our treatments involve a variety of techniques that are catered to your specific diagnosis. Active Release Technique, Graston, Myofascial Release, Spinal Decompression Therapy, and Diversified Chiropractic adjustments are just a few of the treatment options.
Lastly, the doctor will recommend various exercises that are unique to the specific diagnosis. We are happy to work in conjunction with your other doctors to keep everyone in the same line of communication. Please let us know if you would like us to send your other doctors a summary of your care.
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.
