Spinal Adjustment: The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability, and improving function.
Active Release Technique (ART): ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.
Graston Soft Tissue Technique: The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Norma Tec: State-of-the-art Pneumatic Compression Device that mimics normal physiology. It combines three distinctive massage techniques (Pulsing, Gradients, and Distal Relief) in order to help athletes recover quickly from work-outs, injuries, and surgery as well as leaving the muscles feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Rock Tape: Rock Tape is kinesiotape used to treat along with support injuries and improve sports performance. Gives support and stability to joints and muscles without affecting circulation, range of motion, and biomechanics. It is also used for preventive maintenance, edema, and to treat pain.
Selective Functional Movement Analysis (SFMA): SFMA is a series of 7 full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain. This gives the opportunity to identify meaningful impairments that may be seemingly unrelated to the main musculoskeletal complaint, but contribute to the associated disability.
Functional Movement Screening (FMS): FMS creates a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance. The screen effortlessly identifies asymmetries and limitations, diminishing the need for extensive testing and analysis. FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy: Laser therapy generates a photochemical response in damaged tissue by a process called photobiomodulation. This process stimulates healing on a cellular level by enabling cells to more rapidly produce energy (ATP). Deep Tissue Laser Therapy allows for deeper tissue penetration, resulting in fast, efficient, and consistent results.
Dry Needle/Acupuncture: Similar to acupuncture, dry needling involves inserting thin needles into trigger points, or hyper-irritated muscle tissue. The therapy is designed to release trigger points by engaging and twisting the muscle fibers with the needle.
Whole Body Cryotherapy: Recovery time is shortened while energy level is dramatically increased, leading to higher performance and a competitive edge. Muscles are rejuvenated while fatigue and soreness is significantly reduced or eliminated. Blood is circulated through the core, toxins are flushed, and the blood becomes enriched with oxygen and all the necessary enzymes and nutrients.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation: Patients will go through an acute stage, immediately after injury, a middle or rehabilitation stage where the aim is to regain normal movement and strength, and finally a functional or sports specific phase where exercises are more relevant to the activity.
