Integrating Therapies For Greatest Results!
We are committed to promoting health through exercise and activity, but we also want to make sure that each individual is educated in injury prevention in the area of sport and activity he or she is interested. If you are interested in promoting exercise and decreasing injury in the workplace, on a sports team, or with a recreational group, please let us know! We would love to present some great health tips, in person!
Two things are necessary in order to stay active and to get the most out of life. First, avoid injury. Second, effectively treat and manage the injuries acquired. Our goal is to help people of all activity levels stay in their game of choice.
There are three main components to our program: Education, Manual (Hands-on) Treatment and Therapeutic Exercise.
You need to understand the nature of your injury, symptoms, or pain issue. Pain, and the limitations it can cause, can be very frustrating and confusing. We want to identify the cause of your pain or your symptoms, explain your treatment options and help you set recovery and maintenance goals. We can do this on an individual basis or through group seminars and classes. Please let us know if your group is interested in a seminar or presentation!
There are many techniques available to ease your symptoms and speed your recovery. These techniques may include Chiropractic adjustments, different types of massage, physical therapy modalities, nutrition supplements, exercises, or stretching. We can develop a combination of approaches that meet your specific needs and help you to achieve superior results.
This involves placing a joint or body region through a series of gradual movements in order to improve range of motion. Certain body regions respond well to this and it is frequently used with shoulder, hip and knee problems.
Myofascial Release is the manipulation of tissue using light sustained pressure to connect with the fascial system. Fascia is a dense connective tissue which covers muscle as well as every cell of our body. Fascia is not muscle, however the composition of muscle is approximately 80% fascia. Painful restrictions in the muscles and the fascia are a major source of irritation and limitation during common activities and in sports. Working with the fascial system requires experience and a sensitive touch. Hands-on techniques apply gentle pressures and stretches to the fascial system. This can release areas that have become bound or restricted, relieving pain and improving function.
Some muscles may become overly tight and painful, while others may be weak and unable to hold your body in its proper alignment. When imbalances are identified, NeuroMuscular techniques can activate weak muscles and improve muscle balance throughout the body.
Most sports rehabilitation programs include physical conditioning and therapeutic exercise. Physical conditioning maximizes functional capabilities through exercise, utilizing both regional and whole body exercise to stimulate physiological changes in the cardiovascular, neuromusculoskeletal, and proprioceptive systems. Exercise programs may include stretching techniques, strengthening, trunk stabilization, and/or aerobic components. Exercise can help you to improve flexibility, body alignment and posture, stability and strength. As a patient at The Human Health Place, you will most likely receive homework assignments in the form of Therapeutic Exercise to help speed up your recovery.
