Treatment Services

Chiropractic:

Chiropractic medicine is a profession based on the relationship between the structure of the spine and the function of the nervous system. If abnormal joint motion exists, this often creates nervous system dysfunction, muscle spasms/guarding and suboptimal performance. Chiropractic adjustments have tremendous potential to help patients and can make a rapid, positive response.

Active Release Technique:

Often referred to as the Gold Standard of soft tissue treatment, Active Release Technique (ART) is widely used by professional athletes as well as every day athletes and weekend warriors.

Active Release Technique releases nerve and blood vessels trapped beneath adhesions through movement of the tissues. Because scar tissue and other adhesions build up around overused or injured muscles, the muscles eventually become weaker which changes the function and movement of the joints. Eventually, the nerves become compressed and the blood supply decreases, which is when you begin to experience limited movement and pain.

Graston Technique:

The technique utilizes stainless steel instruments designed specifically to detect and effectively treat areas with soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Graston Technique is effective because it provides controlled microtrauma to the affected soft tissue structures. The technique stimulates a local inflammatory response, which leads to remodeling and repair of affected soft tissues. The instruments allow doctors to identify and treat specific areas.

Kinesiology Taping:

Kinesiology tape is very different from a true athletic tape; it has a built in elasticity, that when applied correctly, helps to pull the skin away from the underlying soft tissue. This increases blood flow and lymphatic drainage in the area, resulting in the ability to IMPROVE FORM, FUNCTION and WARD OFF FATIGUE. The continual force and demand that is applied to the body in any sport or repetitive activity, makes for a wide variety of ideal candidates for benefiting from kinesiology tape.

Functional Rehabilitation:

Functional rehabilitation and stabilization of injured muscles and joints is necessary for proper healing and the prevention of future injuries. Rehabilitation exercises tailored to your specific movement patterns and needs act to not only speed recovery, but also address the underlying causes of injuries.
