Sports Chiropractor Services
Doctors of Chiropractic with the Diplomate American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP) or the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), sport specialty certifications from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians, have advanced training in the assessment, management, and rehabilitation of sports-related injuries. Extremity care, rehabilitation, and soft tissue procedures are common skills utilized by these doctors. The specialty training covers a broad spectrum from the pediatric athlete to professional and Olympic athletes, and everything in between, using a variety of techniques and modalities.
We believe that a huge part of the recovery process is to limit your chance of re-injury through strength, stability, and flexibility training. Patients often lack adequate strength and stability in necessary regions of the body, which puts abnormal stress on structures that aren’t meant to bear them. It’s important to learn how to move better so that these issues can be mitigated in the future. This is where our functional rehab program comes into play. Our team will guide you through a series of exercises programmed specifically for you to assist you in returning to your optimal performance level at work and play.
Sometimes also known as KT tape or Rock Tape, kinesiology tape is a stretchable tape that moves with your body. Not only can it help with joint stability, it also helps decrease pain, inflammation, and swelling; delay muscle fatigue; and restore muscles to a better tone. The tape works by decompressing the fascia, allowing built up lymphatic fluid to drain more easily. The minute amount of force that the tape applies to the skin can also be enough of a sensory cue to the brain to help correct joint and muscle movements.
Take Your Body From Where You Are
To Where You Want To Be
Sports chiropractors also focus on optimizing athletic performance by evaluating an athlete’s biomechanics and providing training recommendations to improve balance, coordination, and flexibility. In addition, they may provide nutritional counseling, ergonomic advice, and other lifestyle recommendations to help athletes achieve their optimal health and fitness goals.
