You will receive expert individual care to help relieve pain and return you to the things you love. Our doctors focus on
Athletic Peak Performance, where we'll look at the structural components of an issue, the
surrounding soft tissue, as well as the master control system (the brain) that is controlling everything.
Recovery Pump/NormaTec delivers an aggressive but very natural alternative to passive recovery for athletes.
Our system simulates localized "active recovery" (such as walking) in a passive manner because the therapy is
conducted at rest. Use of the pump's sequential compression therapy for 1-2 hours per day will produce results
similar to the benefits of 12-48 hours of rest. This therapy increases venous return, rapidly accelerating the body's
re-absorption of the elements that cause soreness and fatigue in the muscle. It effectively removes metabolic waste
faster than any traditional mode of recovery or rest alone. These compression devices have been adapted for use
in sports recovery, where patients receive dynamic compression to help pump out lactic acid and reduce inflammation.

Our in-house Registered Dietitian, Katie Dickey, works with individuals to assess his or her usual dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. Katie provides information, educational materials, support, and follow-up to help the individual make and maintain the needed dietary changes.
To us, Rehabilitation includes the assessment of the patient’s functional capacity and work ability to determine the need for rehabilitation. As needed, we will come up with a list of options and a prognosis of rehabilitation and therapy aimed at improving and maintaining functional capacity and other measures to support patients in getting back to their Athletic Peak Performance.
Dry needling is a treatment performed by our skilled providers certified in the procedure. A thin monofilament needle is inserted into the skin to treat underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. This treatment helps to relieve pain, improve chronic pain conditions, regain range of motion, and accelerate recovery.
Soft tissue work is our bread and butter. It’s a hands-on approach that we use to improve the quality of your body’s soft tissues such as skin, muscle, fascia, tendons, and ligaments. Right after an injury or simply living your life, your body does its best to heal and restore tissue and our Soft Tissue Specialists are able to help with this process.
Accidents happen. Concussion testing assesses your brain function before and after a head trauma. The tests are done by a doctor or other health care professional within our clinic that has expertise in evaluating and treating people with concussions utilizing the SCAT-5 tool. We measure physical skills such as balance and mental skills such as memory, concentration, how quickly you can think and solve problems, and your ability to pay attention. Baseline Concussion Screenings and Treatment are offered in house for the protection of our athletes.
We are here to help you recover faster from these setbacks and get you back to optimal performance.
