Chiropractic care has been around for over one hundred years. The philosophy of chiropractic care is to reach optimal health without drugs and other invasive treatments. A chiropractic adjustment is a quick impulse applied to specific fixated segments (a subluxation) in your spine to restore proper neurological flow and increase joint mobility. Chiropractic is a wellness care; it is designed to treat before you are hurt. It is a safe treatment method used on infants to elderly.
Over the past decade professional athletes have discovered the benefits of chiropractic and currently it is involved in many professional leagues such as the NFL, NBA, and in the Olympics. In sports chiropractic, we utilize more modalities to treat the spine and extremities. Dr Farid utilizes biomechanical screenings such as Functional Movement Screen (FMS) to find biomechanical dysfunction to prevent potential injuries and Selective Functional Movement Assessments (SFMA) to find the root cause of your problem. Based on your history, exam findings, and the screens, a treatment plan will be structured which could include chiropractic, rehabilitation, passive modalities, or referral out for imaging if needed. Whether you are suffering an injury from running, Crossfit, weight lifting, or any other sports, request an appointment or consult to see how we can help you.
Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique (ART) is the gold standard myofascial therapy for any acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. Unlike massage and other soft tissue therapies, ART is performed with active participation of the patient to treat the soft tissue in the restricted planes of motion. For example, let us assume you experience knee pain while running, your pain is during a dynamic movement, with ART we will treat your knee in a similar motion to address the problem.
Dry needling is a specific myofascial trigger point therapy using sterile needles to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. Trigger points can develop from trauma and/or non-traumatic repetitive movements. These trigger points can alter the function of the muscle leading to pain and dysfunctions. Dry needling can be utilized to effectively treat any acute, chronic, superficial and deep pain.
