Sports Chiropractic

Sports Chiropractic specializes in the care of musculoskeletal injuries and injury prevention. Through a process involving soft tissue work, joint mobilization, and rehabilitation, our Chiropractors provide support for any type of patient to recover from injury and perform at their best.

Our Sports Chiropractic Services Include…

Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization

Stimulates connective tissue remodeling through resorption of excessive fibrosis, and induces repair and regeneration of collagen secondary to fibroblast recruitment. This will lead to the breakdown, or release of scar tissue, fascial restrictions and adhesions.

Mobilizations & Chiropractic Adjustments

Used to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. It helps resolve joint inflammation and reduces pain

Rehabilitation Exercise

A customized program that includes: mobility, stability, activation, coordination, and strength.

Kinesiotaping and Support Taping

Provides afferent mechanoreceptor stimulus to the brain, and the brain will perceive stability. Helps decrease pain, improve circulation, and to facilitate muscle function.

Muscle Release Technique

Incorporating a shorten to lengthen fashion of a specific muscle/tendon/ligament with either a proximal or distal tensioning.

BFR (Blood Flow Restriction)

During BFR training, a patient exercises with a cuff around their weak arm or leg. The cuff partially restricts blood flow, creating a metabolic environment that stimulates muscle hypertrophy. This can be especially useful for patients post-surgery to address muscle atrophy and for those who cannot tolerate the mechanical stress of heavily-loaded exercises due to pain.

Therapeutic Cupping

Decompression approach is one of its kind that works in lifting of adhesions with movement instead of compressing the tissues.
