When you live an active life, you’re sure to experience a few aches and pains, such as knee pain, low back pain, joint pain or shoulder pain. Over the years, we have seen a dramatic increase in sports injuries. More than 10 million sports injuries are treated each year in the United States alone. One of the major problems is the amount of time we are in improper positions and repetitive actions before or after our athletic activities. This has led to an astonishing amount of improper movement patterns often leading to dysfunction, pain and decreased performance.

How Sports Injury Rehabilitation Works
We all have certain biomechanical attributes. Some are fixed and unchangeable. Some of these attributes, however, can be affected positively to increase the body’s capacity for athletic performance.
We start out with an examination and functional assessment of movement patterns utilizing chiropractic, neurological, and orthopedic measurements to help to find the source of your pain and help us determine an individual treatment program. We will then personally design and guide you through a custom rehabilitation or fitness program. These specialized exercises are an essential factor in injury prevention, sports conditioning, and injury rehabilitation.
You will not only win with decreased pain but an improvement in balance, coordination, strength, stability, the range of motion and endurance in an effort to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury.
Our focus will be on muscular imbalances, faulty neuromuscular coordination, inadequate ligament or tendon strength, inadequate muscle or cardiovascular endurance, inadequate muscle bulk, problems with flexibility and problems related to body composition. Using validated clinical techniques, we can isolate those mechanical variables that we can affect. Then utilizing the correct mix of state of the science hands-on clinical treatment, functional stretching, and specific exercises we will enhance your ability to perform your sport or athletic physical activity with improved technique, more power, and reduced risk of injury. Instead of investing in new equipment that may compensate for biomechanical deficiencies, invest in your body. You won’t regret it!
