What is Sports Therapy?
Sports therapy is providing treatment through education, movements, treatments, manual/hands-on procedures, exercises, and stretches to facilitate healing of an injured joint or muscle, or general injury.  It is directed at healing/modifying your movements, and is intended to get the patient back to normal after an injury or ailment.  The cool thing about sports therapy is if performed correctly, the patient will return at a higher level than pre-injury status.

What is Functional Rehabilitation?

It is individual goal-driven rehabilitation.  Normal range of motion or normal movement can be considered functional movement.  When there is a lack of movement or more movement is needed, then there is a functional deficit.  We must work to get proper movement in order to stay injury free and receive the most out of our bodies-especially on a performance level.  Functional rehabilitation would include education, movements, exercises, and stretches, but would additionally include patient specific movement exercises, bio-mechanical analysis', and techniques geared to maximizing the body's ability to produce optimal force and remain injury free.    

For example, a shoulder injury happens to a contractor.  He attends physical therapy for 3 months and is discharged, BUT he cannot hammer nails overhead. This movement is what the patient lacks.  Dr. Ron would work to resolve that loss through functional rehabilitation.  

What is Soft Tissue Therapy/Myofascial Release?
It is the manual release of soft tissue, mainly muscles.  It involves applying positive pressure into the muscular environment.  We can only heal joints or muscles if we provide assistance in healing because the human body has other things to focus on like keeping us alive, than to spend energy here.  Many patients say the muscle is fine when it stops hurting, but if nothing changes, then nothing changes.  This is a major part of any therapy treatment, and the most important.  

We focus on making changes in the muscle physiology itself:  helping to increase muscular length or enhance cellular repair of damaged muscle tissue.  We provide whatever the muscle needs to fully repair itself.

What is Medical/Sports Cupping?
As seen in the 2016 RIO Olympic Games, it is the use of plastic cups to help provide myofascial release through the application of negative pressure in the muscles.  This pressure helps loosen the fascia and enhance blood flow to the afflicted area, and may leave a small mark, or "leopard spot" at times.  This mark does not affect the healing environment, but is only superficial as we must get through the skin to get to the muscle.  This is a very effective technique that can be used for a variety of ailments or injuries, and from pre-game to post game.

What is Dry Needling?
It is the utilization of acupuncture needles applied directly into the muscles in a neutral pressure to enhance the flow of cellular repair migration from cellular electric charge to trigger point release.  It is extremely effective at helping stubborn muscles release and enhances the rate of recovery, as well as a valuable way to affect the central nervous system quickly.  

Patient Testimonial

"Being an athlete, I have experienced various injuries of the years, and have always saw chiropractors.  The previous ones I have visited were usually the same, just giving me the quick 5-10 minute visit with and adjustment and back massage, and really not interactive with their patient.  Overall, I never felt like they were doing much to actually treat or prevent injuries, just making it feel more bearable for no more than a couple of hours.  Then I went to Dr. Ron, and his procedure was unlike any I have experienced before.  Not only does he make your painful spots feel better, but he really works on treating your injury and helps you prevent one in the future by providing various rehab activities to do on your own.  In addition, Dr. Ron specializes in vital areas necessary for an athlete's well being, such as healthy nutrition, bloodwork, and so much more.  Thanks Dr. Ron!"
