SPORTS INJURIES ...
Whether you are a competetive bodybuilder, a Tour De Tucson kind of cyclist, a college football star, a professional dance instructor, a triathlete, or a weekend softball warrior, we can help you maximize your performance.
Athletes in any sport have several things in common:
1) You are continually trying to improve your personal best performance
2) You want to be able to train hard, have fun, and be pain free
3) You don't want to be sidelined by injuries
4) You don't want to "get old"
Pain, weakness, or imbalanced performance may be caused by many factors. There are structural, neurophysiological, and emotional components to all our physical activities. Maximizing your performance while minimizing your injury rate is something every athlete seeks.
We can help you do just that by keeping your strengthening your core and major stabilizing muscles, and balancing your entire neuromusculoskeletal system. Symptoms of imbalance can include localized or radiating pain, weakness, tingling, or other symptoms. Seeking treatment quickly after a sports injury can help prevent the development of performance degrading compensations, like "limps", of any body region, but we can help correct your symptoms and improve your performance weeks or even years after an original injury.
Our treatment methods include an eclectic blend of gentle chiropractic adjustments, myofascial release (deep tissue pressure points and stretching), specific rehabilitative stretch and exercise recommendations, active release (myofascial work coupled with muscular contractions to release adhesions), and nutritional suggestions.
The long term complications from sports injuries are statistically similar to the compressive and tearing forces on the spine, discs, and ligaments that occur in a motor vehicle collision whiplash. Studies clearly indicate that treating injuries early tends to minimize long term problems, and minimizes their intrusion into your active lifestyle. Problems caught early are easier, faster, and less expensive to correct, allowing you to stay active and not get sidelined from your favorite sport.
