If you tuned into the Olympic swimming last summer, you might have noticed dark red circles on a few prominent athletes, namely Michael Phelps. With almost half of the world watching, cupping therapy was having its moment in the spotlight.
At Sports Chiropractic Institute, we utilize chiropractic techniques to mobilize the bones/joints of the spine. Equally important as the spine, are the joints that make up the knee, ankle, elbow, shoulder; we adjust these joints when indicated. It is imperative that muscles are responding appropriately allowing the joints to move accordingly. We utilize soft tissue techniques to inhibit overactive muscles and corrective exercises to activate muscles. This means you get better faster!
Sports Chiropractic Institute has only licensed massage therapists (LMT) with multiple years of experience. Soft tissue therapies may include trigger point therapy, pin and release or positional release, myofascial release as well as work to break up scar tissue and adhesions.
In addition to injury care, we offer sports performance enhancement services. We will evaluate your body’s kinetic chain, the “whole machine,” by assessing posture, functional movement and proprioception (your body’s ability to sense its environment and determine an effective response). If one part of the machine is weak or “off,” the entire body will not be able to perform at an optimal level. We want you firing on all cylinders and back to your optimal performance level.
Whether you goal is playing pass in the back yard or being competitive in your next event, our focus is to optimize your next opportunity.
At Sports Chiropractic Institute, we utilize stainless steel instruments to comb over and “catch” on fibrotic tissue, which immediately identifies areas of restriction. The instruments enable clinicians to treat soft tissue lesions with depth, pressure, and specificity necessary to affect the condition at the site of pain as well as following the kinetic chain to find and treat the cause.
Once the tissue dysfunction has been identified, the instruments break up the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body.” Space and then “Graston Technique is Clinically Proven to Achieve Quicker and Better Outcomes in Treating”
Being a three sport athlete, there are many occasions where injuries occur. Mid Track and Field season, I pulled my quad muscle in the midst of competition. After receiving one week of treatments and completing my prescribed exercise regimen, I was back on the track where I won the Region in High Jump. Read More…
