At Foundation Chiropractic we treat athletes from the beginner to the most advanced. We specialize in treating crossfit athletes and are familiar with the injuries and strains that are common to the sport. As part of the treatment we will perform a functional movement assessment.
This is done in order to find the weakness or dysfunction that caused the problem in the first place instead of just looking where the pain is manifest.
We also utilize instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization technique or IASTM. This relieves tight muscles and breaks up scar tissue that forms in the muscles after an injury. By doing this, blood flow to the area is increased, healing time decreases and the long term prognosis is better.
Our Athletic Services
Better joint function
When joints move properly they stay healthy. When they stop moving they degenerate. Chiropractic restores motion to the joint which helps to lubricate the joint capsule.
Chiropractic adjustments can increase the nerve signal to the intestines, heart, lungs stomach and sex organs. This stimulates the organs to help improve their function.
Muscle Tone Therapies
Muscle tone is the amount of stiffness or tension in a resting muscle as well as its adaptability. An adjustment can activate or switch on the internal stretch detectors of the muscle belly resulting in improved function of muscle fibers and therefore improved muscle control and tone.
Many professional athletes utilize chiropractic care. One reason is because it can improve response time and muscle reflexes making them quicker and more explosive.
Chiropractic adjustment is an input to the brain, particularly the cerebellum which controls movement and coordination. When communication from the joints to the brain increases balance improves.
Research shows that chiropractic care can improve a person’s circulatory system, which is how blood flows through the body. This allows for better blood flow and improved oxygenation to the brain.
Reduced Recovery time
Recovery time from surgery, illness or injury can be reduced with regular chiropractic care. As nerves are stimulated and muscles relax, fluids in the body travel towards the area of injury, bringing with it oxygen and other essential nutrients that can promote healing.
RockTape is the world’s best kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain. RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompression effect. Stretchier, stickier and stronger than the competition, RockTape is preferred by athletes and medical professionals throughout the world.
