Sports Therapy for all types of pain and injuries.
We are currently the ONLY clinic in AZ to offer the ARX (adaptive resistance exercise)
Most injuries we treat, even chronic conditions, respond well to a combination of Myofascial Release Tissue Therapy (Called Neuromuscular Re-education), Deep Muscle Stimulation (Called Therastim/ARP WAVE) and Spinal and/or Extremity Joint Mobilization.
We may also use Acupuncture or dry needling for pain relief.
Identifying the pain, in our opinion, is only one piece of the puzzle. Now in order to truly “fix” the problem we need to identify muscle imbalances, weak muscles, muscle adhesions, over excited muscles or inhibited (muscles that are not firing) that are contributing to your pain.
This is done with a Functional movement screen. During this exam we are looking movement patterns that are key to normal function. You will be doing specific movements (such as squats, lunge, push ups, core strength) and your movement patterns will be graded. The arches of your feet are also evaluated.
We are truly looking at the entire body chain and not just where your pain might be.
Enhanced performance means different thinks to different people. Professional athlete, weekend warrior, casual golfer or maybe you just want pick up your children without pain.
Enhanced performance means we want Efficient muscle contraction and stable joints so our body at optimal levels.
Loss of muscle contraction results in a decreased range of motion, and therefore decreased physical performance.
Based on the Functional movement screen specific techniques or exercise are used restore proper movement and function.
Common techniques used to restore proper movement patterns and function are:
Muscle Activation Technique
Active Release Therapy
ARP Wave Strength Training
ARX Strength Training
Erase the pain. Restore proper movements and function. Enhance muscle performance.
