Types of Care

Here are just a few types of care that Dr Pro treats. Please call for a consultation and appointment if you are experiencing any amount of pain.

Bio-Mechanics & Performance Care

Biomechanics is the study of how the bodies’ parts function and relate to one another.  Performance care is the process of applying therapies to better your physical abilities. Performance care is applied after treatment of acute injuries is completed and, in the absence of any injury at all to fine-tune muscle movement and function. 

For many, athletes in particular, they say they feel fine but are unaware of old injury sites or biomechanical faults that may lead to problems later. Dr. Pro has specialized training in the observation of movements and how they relate to muscle function. This enables him to find previously unnoticed issues and correct them.  

Problem areas cause the body to compensate for damaged areas or loss of function compounding the problems of muscle imbalances, tension and adaptation leading to still more loss of function. A tight muscle is a weak muscle, usually, and will most likely lead to future injuries.  

Athletic Injuries
Big and Small

From as early as your first fall as a child, you have been accumulating wounds, injuries and scar tissue. Many of these injuries have been long forgotten in your mind, but your body has stored them all in memory as scar tissue, tightness and/or poor function. Whatever your level of sports or fitness, from recreational to professional, you have injuries that need attention.  

An injury, like a sprain, pulled muscle, strain, overuse or overtraining, damages soft tissues causing the body to produce scar tissue that in turn is generated to repair the injury site. muscles get stuck to each other and do not slide properly. This results in more effort to produce the same motion and strength as a healthy muscle.

While many treatments are available for soft tissues, Dr. Pro offers a muscle and movement protocol specific approach using active patient motion whenever possible.
  

Life's Bumps and Bruises

Through the assessment of tissue texture, tension, movement and function, Dr. Pro will find a way to diagnosis and treat the underlying causes or a variety of conditions collectively called Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTD’s).

Dr. Pro has proven treatment to be a fast, effective, non-invasive way to heal a wide range of soft tissue injuries and movement based muscular problems allowing people to get moving again comfortably and without pain.

Dr. Pro treats soft tissue, spinal, extremity, occupational and sports injuries using chiropractic neurology methods, physical therapy modalities to help individuals achieve their performance goals and regain their strength and overall wellbeing. 

One hour with Dr. Pro can change your life for the better.
