Peak Performance Chiropractic
combines Chiropractic, ART, and Rehabilitation to effectively help you perform optimally. These
three techniques work together to give the patient a complete healing experience.
Here is how it works: If you have a
dysfunctional joint, it causes a decrease in the activity of the muscle surrounding that joint(s), which in turn causes scar tissue
(see ART page) of that structure rendering that area of the body unstable. Scar tissue can bind tissue preventing it from moving
freely. Scar tissue can cause shorter and weaker muscles, decreased range of motion and even pain. In addition, scar tissue can
lead to nerve entrapment that can result in "tingling", numbness or even weakness in your arms or legs.
Chiropractic treats the dysfunctional joint, while ART treats the scar tissue. Rehabilitation is then needed to stabilize the body to function properly. One is not as effective without the other. Please see diagram below.
Chiropractic care enhances the relationship between joint dysfunction and responsiveness of your nervous system to react to the surrounding environment. Chiropractic locates and removes spinal misalignments that occur as a result of injuries, accidents, stress and repetitive trauma disorders. These spinal misalignments can place stress on our spine and put pressure on our nerves leading to nerve interference, which in turn can negatively affect organs, muscles and other parts of body function.
The purpose of rehabilitation and exercise training is to:
- Recover from injury
- Prevent injury
- Enhance performance
- Improve posture
Peak Performance Chiropractic incorporates balance, stability, and activity specific performance to help you feel and function optimally. It is my goal to help you do activities and work better than you were once able to.
ART is highly effective for many soft tissue aliments such as:
- Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome or Frozen Shoulder
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Iliotibial Band Syndrome
- Shin Splints
- Plantar Fascitis
- Knee Pain
- Swimmer's Shoulder
- Tennis Elbow
- Golfer's Elbow
- Chronic back and neck pain
