“Motion is lotion, Rest is rust”. Our bodies are meant to move and either due to injury, poor stabilization, or sustained postures our joints lack movement and become restricted. Joint manipulation is a safe and effective treatment option to regain range of motion and strength while decreasing pain in the body.
Most physical therapy and rehabilitation specialties give their patients the same general rehab exercises no matter the injury. We have heard countless times that providers take a cookie-cutter approach to care by giving patients outdated, ineffective, and general rehab exercises.
We will always work with you one on one and develop a plan specifically for your case. We use Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization a powerful rehabilitation technique.
Kinesio Taping also known as KT taping is a popular method of dynamic taping. This allows for greater functional movement and stability than the conventional athletic tape. KT taping can be an amazing tool to have an immediate decrease in pain and an increase in performance.
Fascial manipulation is the identification of specific areas of the fascia system in connection with specific limited movements. Once a limited or painful movement is identified, then a specific point on the fascia system is then appropriately manipulated. This results in a decrease in pain and an increase in movement.
Dry needling is a popular tool in the sports world. The benefits are ideal for any athlete. Dry needling is proven to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow, decrease exercise-induced soreness, and increase mobility!
Active Release Technique
ART stands for Active Release Technique, it is a tool used for the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions. We use ART to treat tight musculature allowing for a return of your body's function through a movement-based approach. ART is commonly used on plantar fasciitis, Golfers/Tennis elbow, Patellofemoral pain syndrome, and Iliotibial band syndrome.
Official Team Chiropractor & Partners
At Denner Chiropractic & Performance we are highly trained sports medicine professionals that specialize in injuries related to your musculoskeletal system.
We have extensive training and experience in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of movement-based conditions with options for both acute and chronic sports injuries.
During your first visit, we will sit down and get to know you. We will discuss your condition, pain points, and lifestyle factors.
Then we will perform a detailed exam that will consist of a biomechanical assessment. We will use our skill set to correctly identify your injury.
We will then educate you on your condition and explain a plan to get you out of pain and doing the activities you love as safely and quickly as possible.
We usually have time for treatment on the first visit which is always hands-on and one-on-one. Follow-up appointments will usually start with a quick functional assessment to determine your progress and to ensure your goals are met. We will then carry out our treatment plan!
Sports Chiropractic is a general term used to describe the integration of multiple evidence-based techniques for the treatment of movement-based conditions.
Our main objective is to return your body’s overall function by removing pain, increasing joint range of motion, and building better movement patterns.
How long is a typical treatment session?
”Our new patient exams are 40 minutes to an hour long. This allows for ample time to diagnose and treat your complaint properly. A follow-up appointment is 20min in length and is spent with one-on-one personalized hands-on care.
How long is a typical trial of care?
”Our typical trial of care usually ranges from 6-10 visits over a 3-5 week period. Patients typically see results on the first visit and gradually improve over time. Our goal is to empower you with the tools you need to manage your case and achieve long-lasting functional improvements.
How can you diagnose my injury without imaging?
Advanced imaging such as X-ray or MRI isn’t always needed to rule in or out a diagnosis. The use of orthopedic tests and functional movement screens is just as effective as some imaging tools. If one of our patients is suspected of having an injury that has caused structural damage we will refer out for further imaging.
Top athletic performance requires a significant investment of effort and energy. Unfortunately, even the most dedicated athletes can't prevent every injury. When that happens, it's important to be able to turn to professionals who have both knowledge and experience in helping athletes recover from injuries while also getting them back in top form as quickly and safely as possible.
At Denner Chiropractic & Performance we specialize in helping all kinds of athletes achieve their goals through tailored treatments such as chiropratic manipulation, soft-tissue techniques and rehabilitation exercises. We understand the dedication our athletes have for their sport, so we make sure that our treatments are tailored for each individual patient, helping them stay healthier for longer not only so they can compete at the highest level but feel their absolute best doing so.
At Denner Chiropractic & Performance, we understand the importance of keeping young athletes healthy and active. Playing sports is a great way to stay physically fit and develop essential skills such as teamwork and communication.
However, youth athletes often put their bodies under a lot of stress during the season. From practicing long hours to competing in games, the physical demands of being an athlete can be tough on growing bodies.
That's why we offer various services specifically designed to help youth athletes recover from injury and avoid future problems. From sports chiropractic care, rehabilitative exercises, soft tissue, and dry needling we can help keep your child in the game for years to come.
