Providing the most cutting-edge techniques in innovative and integrated sports medicine ranging from physiotherapy and athletic training to chiropractic care.
Functional Dry Needling
Dry Needling is a general term for a therapeutic treatment procedure that involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the area of the body which produces pain and typically contains a ‘Trigger Point’. There is no injectable solution and typically the needle which is used is very thin. Dry needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. This technique is unequaled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction that leads to pain and functional deficits.
Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes. The technique uses stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Class IV Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy accelerates your body’s own natural healing process through photo-bio-stimulation. Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions and post surgical pain.
Active Release Techniques®
Active Release Techniques® (A.R.T.) is a soft tissue treatment for muscle, nerves, ligaments, fascia and tendons injuries. It is great for treating overuse issues such as micro traumas, hypoxia injuries, collisions, pulls, and tears. These injuries can cause dense scar tissue to form and restrict full range of motion or entrap nerves. A.R.T. treats these conditions by using the hands to feel the tissue and treat using precise tension and specific movements to break up the scar tissue.
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Sports chiropractors are those who focus their care on injury care, injury prevention and performance enhancement in the athletic arena. This includes caring for professional, elite amateur and recreational athletes.
Corrective Exercise Programming
Corrective exercises (therapeutic exercise programming) is a series of specific movements and exercises that are designed to facilitate the healing process. These corrective exercises help to decrease pain, restore muscular balance, improve proprioception, core strength, flexibility, and stability needed to prevent future injuries. The exercise programs teach the patient how to prevent the pain from re-occurring so that they do not have to frequently return to the therapist.
Myofascial decompression or cup therapy is a form of myofascial release. Cupping is a form of therapy where cups are placed on the skin using suction. It arises from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), dating back at least 2,000 years. Myofascial decompression works to decompress adhesions for improved flow of blood and nutrient exchange. In a Western medical perspective, the cups are used for the following: mechanical connective tissue change, trigger point release, improving myofascial lines of movement, releasing scar adhesions and scar tissue, increase blood flow & ultimately pain relief and return to function.
The general goals of athletic taping are to restrict the motion of injured joint, compress soft tissues to reduce swelling, support anatomical structure involved in the injury, protect the injured joint from re-injury, and protect the injured part while the injured part is in the healing process. We offer Dynamic Taping, Kinesiology Taping, Traditional Athletic Taping.
NormaTec Recovery System
The NormaTec Recovery System is a revolutionary recovery device that uses compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with their patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release.
Sports Massage Therapy
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete's sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
The cost of injuries to teams and athletes is significant. Many soft tissue injuries can be prevented if detected early. Use MusleSound to discover muscle asymmetries and track chronic depletion. Manage muscle fatigue before an injury occurs.
