Chiropractic and Sports Injuries with Active Release Technique

Active-Release-leg-3We serve many local athletes because of our knowledge and specialty in sports injuries and chiropractic. Dr. Kevin Sherman's enhanced knowledge of the body's biomechanics complemented with combination advanced soft tissue treatments provides relief to many athletes who have struggled with injuries. We use many of these same treatments and knowledge to help patients with traditional neck and back pain injuries.

Overuse and wear-and-tear injuries damage muscles and soft tissue above and below the injury area. Often plantar fasciitis, IT band syndrome, or knee pain is the result of alter mechanics from soft tissue restrictions elsewhere in the body. Your body has compensated for the longstanding dysfunction but eventually tissues becomes injured.

Graston-Technique-22Scar tissue or soft tissue adhesions are areas of bad healing, and removing scar tissue improves performance and function in the muscles. Many chronic injuries "finally heal" with Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, sports massage therapy, proper stretching, strengthening, and chiropractic.

We offer all of these services to keep you running, riding, swimming, or jumping. We strongly believe in keeping you active during your treatments and recovery. We believe the statement "stay off it until it doesn't hurt" is said by someone who doesn't have a marathon or Ironman event in six weeks.
