Advanced Sports Chiropractic (ASC) is about you, the patient. Our patient centered philosophy is about putting you the patient first. Whether you are a world class athlete or an “Olympic Gardener,” we are here to help. We strive to assist you in living life to the fullest regardless of your age or current level of fitness. You set the goal, we help you reach it.

The providers at our office are highly active and in some cases competitive athletes themselves. We range in age from our late twenties through our sixties. In other words; we have been there and done that; we get it!

We care for active individuals and athletes of all ages and abilities. We know athletes and active people work hard to get their bodies conditioned to achieve peak performance levels. Our patients reach for the highest level of well-being and are constantly searching for newer and better ways to get fit and stay fit and remain injury free.   

Pushing the human body hard and often to its limits can sometimes cause injury. It may be just a “tweak” that needs a little attention or it could be a major injury that keeps us on the proverbial “bench” unable to enjoy our usual active lifestyle. At ASC, we support health, wellness and vigor by helping our patients keep their bodies moving the way they were designed; To perform at their highest levels and to avoid injury.

Despite our best efforts sometimes we do get injured. If this should happen our providers are trained in the most innovative and up to date methods to restore our patients to optimal health, performance and well being. We do this with a multi-pronged approach which includes:

 

  • Detailed patient history. Our providers will search your activity level and history for variations in volume or intensity of exercise. Looking into details such as new or improperly fit shoes, appropriate equipment, training terrain etc. We will also look for incidents of trauma, ergonomic issues  or other possible root causes of your condition.

  • Diagnostic imaging may be necessary. In order to provide the most accurate diagnosis our doctors may prescribe x-rays, lab work, MRI or diagnostic ultrasound. There are convenient locations adjacent to our offices to have all of your workups done.  

  • A thorough hands on examination which may include range of motion, muscle strength testing, muscle tone evaluation, flexibility, muscular imbalance and gait characteristics. Our providers will carefully examine the patient's muscles for signs of adhesions, trigger points or muscle spasms to ascertain the severity of these issues and how they are impacting your health and performance.   

  • Once all the information is gathered we will recommend a treatment plan that fits your needs and values. At ASC we understand no two people react the same way to any one procedure. There are no cookie cutter approaches practiced at our offices. The treatment plan will be adjusted to your individual needs. Factors such as age, activity level, chronicity of injury and willingness and ability to comply with recommendations all factor into a tailor made treatment protocol aimed at getting you back in action as expeditiously as possible.     The doctors will use various modalities and soft tissue techniques (Described below) to get our patients back into action and feeling healthy as quickly as possible

  • Referrals to other healthcare providers. At ASC we realize not all conditions fall within our scope of practice. In the event a condition would be better handled by another type of provider or providers an appropriate referral to to another specialist will be made. Often times the doctors at ASC will care for our patients in concert with other providers such as orthopedist, physical therapist, massage therapist, neurologist etc. We at ASC are fortunate to enjoy a great working relationship with our brethren in the medical profession.

  • Finally we will teach our patients how to stay healthy, active and avoid re-injury by training our patients in the latest methods to assist in recovery. ( Homework) These methods include use of foam rollers, massage sticks, self massage, stretching to name just a few of the at home self care methods prescribed and demonstrated by our staff.

  • Unlike traditional chiropractic offices we focus on the active population, so we treat the entire frame not just the spine, the entire musculoskeletal system from head to toe. While we do provide traditional spinal adjustments of the neck back and extremities, we are also trained to treat soft tissue injuries throughout the whole body using specific techniques that promote healing. Our providers work with all abilities and activity levels. We work with professional athletes  as well as high school and CYO kids and the weekend warrior.  We also cater to moms, dads, and busy working professional with no time to miss out on life because they are nursing chronic injuries.  If you're experiencing chronic or acute pain in your neck, shoulders, arms, back, legs, ankles or feet you can find relief at ASC.

  • We provide Active Release Techniques (ART). ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue System/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles. For more information click this link
