Cupping is an alternative therapy that has been around for many years. There are many benefits to cupping, some include: pain management, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and deep tissue massage.
Kinesio taping acts to lift the skin away from the fascia and muscle, this allows for decompression and reduced swelling. The application also decreases pain.
Instrument assisted stretching
We have various ways of decreasing muscle and fascia tension. These instruments work great for decreasing pain, scar tissue and trigger points.
What is Sports Chiropractic?
- Chiropractic simply means “to treat by hand”. Chiropractors use their highly trained sense of touch to identify joint fixation in the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and foot. Once we find a fixation we use a specific amount of pressure to the area to relieve that fixation. Once that restriction is removed, the body can move in its full range of motion and joint pain is usually decreased as well.
Not only do we remove joint restriction throughout the body, we also decrease tension of the surrounding musculature. We work to stretch the tight muscles and strengthen the elongated ones, so that the body can move the joints in a more supported movement. The result is balanced motion and less joint strain.
