BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy
We’re proud to introduce Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, to our suite of available services and treatments. If you suffer from exhaustion, weight gain, sleep disturbances, low T, hot flashes, or other symptoms, you may be experiencing a hormonal imbalance. This hormonal replacement therapy is used to help correct those symptoms and is custom compounded to each patient’s unique physiology, allowing our clients to gain the most out of BHRT benefits as possible.
We use BioTE Medical’s pellet therapy as our preferred method of treating hormonal imbalance. The BHRT pellets we utilize allow for the consistent administration of the necessary hormone or hormones when your body most requires it.
INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILZATION
Soft tissue therapy is among the many useful treatments offered at Performance Sports Medical Center. It refers to the assessment and treatment of soft tissue injuries and pain. These soft tissues include joints, ligaments, connective tissues, tendons and muscles. Treatments can relieve muscle pain, deactivate pain trigger points, improve flexibility, break down scar tissue, promote relaxation and more.
Skilled practitioners can help maintain your body, prevent injury and reduce the likelihood or the severity of adverse muscular patterning through soft tissue therapy.
Your body is seventy-percent soft tissue, and daily activities such as exercise, work stress and general injury create soft-tissue problems. This daily wear can lead to pain, limited range of movement and slow recovery as you age, and soft tissue therapy aims to reverse the damage.
Your spinal column facilitates movement and protects your central nervous system, which controls all parts of your body. Though some areas of your body, like internal organs, seem unrelated to spinal health, they too are affected by spinal issues.
When one or more of the twenty-fo ur vertebrae are out of alignment, the condition is known as a subluxation. Subluxations are often the cause of poor health and persistent pain, even in the absence of back pain.
The chiropractic services at Performance Sports Therapy provides the precise adjustments needed to correct subluxations.
These adjustments help your body heal without drugs or surgery. As you recover, normal nerve transmission will return and your body will mend naturally.
This technique is a soft tissue mobilization technique that is utilized to restore normal motion to the muscle, tendon and ligaments of the affected, symptomatic region. What sets Performance Sports Medical Center apart from some other clinics you may have experienced is the belief that both joints and soft tissue often need to be addressed concurrently in order to achieve maximum effectiveness within a treatment session. This belief is based on simple anatomical principles of the human body.
Muscle and tendon are the primary movers of the joints of the body while ligament acts as a support structure around a joint in order to help provide stability. Any compromise to the soft tissue will inevitably affect proper joint function so it is often necessary to address both the joint dysfunction and soft tissue in order for treatment to be effective and longer lasting.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS
We offer Trigger Point Injections (TPI) to treat painful areas of muscles that contain trigger points. Our injections typically take just a few minutes and contain a local anesthetic with a homeopathic anti-inflammatory called Sarapin.
With the injection, the trigger point in the muscle is made inac tive and the pain is alleviated. Certain patients may have allergies to a drug contained in the injection, in which case Dry Needling may be the recommended treatment. Athletes and patients who are physically active on a consistent basis often find muscle pain and discomfort alleviated by our TPI procedure. In addition, a Trigger Point Injection can be used to treat fibromyalgia and tension headaches. As with any treatment plan, please discuss first with one of our doctors to see if it’s right for you.
FUNCTIONAL DRY NEEDLING
Performance Sports Medical Center offers functional dry needling to help our patients recover from injury and reduce chronic pain. Our dry needling treatments use thin needles to access trigger points in the muscles to facilitate patient recovery from within.
The needles used in dry needling do not inject any solution, and they are so thin that most patients will not feel them penetrate the skin. Some patients do feel mild to moderate discomfort as the needle enters the muscle tissue, but most consider it minimal compared to the reward of releasing trigger points and thereby relieving pain.
Results typically appear in just two to four sessions, depending on the injury and pain being treated.
We often employ Kinesio taping to help our patients. Kinesio taping is a therapeutic treatment that was designed to help patients treat injuries and pain between chiropractic treatments. Kinesio tape is made from breathable, latex-free elastic fibers that stretch in only one direction, which allows it to be applied to treat almost any physical ailment without severely restricting range of motion. When applied by skillful practitioners, Kinesio taping can help support and rehabilitate injuries by lifting the skin, facilitating lymphatic drainage and relieving pain.
The Kinesio taping method dates back to Japan in 1979, and it came to America in 1995. It has since successfully aided the treatment of thousands of patients, and it can likely do the same for you.
