We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.
This therapy focuses on restoring function, improving mobility and relieving pain associated with temporary or long-term physical disabilities. Physical therapy usually includes prescribed exercises and therapeutic interventions such as ultrasound, traction, neuromuscular massage and Graston Technique to relieve pain, increase strength and restore function. Patients who undergo physical therapy receive continuous re-examinations, while therapy is adjusted accordingly.
The technique is performed with patented stainless-steel instruments designed to detect and treat soft-tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation in order to reduce pain and restore function. When connective tissue such as muscle, ligaments or tendons become restricted or scarred, it can result in pain, tenderness, loss of flexibility and motion. It is not unusual to find a restriction in one part of the body that produces pain and dysfunction in another area. This is commonly known as the kinetic chain.
Sports Performance/Personal Training
In addition to physical therapy, we offer sports performance and personal training programs to help assess body mechanics, limit injuries and increase physical and athletic performance. We also develop specific modifications to reduce potential injuries with sports and activities as well as personalized exercise programs to help you reach your goals safely and effectively.
Titleist Performance Institute Movement Screen
This is a functional movement screen that identifies physical limitations in golfers and how it affects their swing. Unlike most movement screens, the TPI screen uses the Body-Swing Connection to specifically focus on creating the most efficient swing by identifying common swing faults related to muscle imbalance, joint range of motion limitations and overall body mechanics. During the screen, we will assess your body mechanics, movement quality, physical fitness and health history to give you the tools to build your most efficient swing while increasing performance, consistency and reducing risk of injury on the golf course.
Lifestyle and Exercise Counseling
Is the patient sedentary? Athletic? Are there small children at home? What are the physical requirements of the patient’s job? These are just a few of the questions doctors may ask to explore a patient’s lifestyle demands. The goal is to evaluate potential for injury and identify appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises to help prevent re-injury and promote general wellness. Nutritional counseling may also be provided.
