Sports & Chiropractic Care
Recognizing the role a healthy structure plays in athletic performance and injury prevention, Dr. Dow became board certified in sports chiropractic in 2006 and rehabilitation in 2009. This required over a year of additional education and passing lengthy exams. On-going continuing ed is required to maintain a valid license. His knowledge in these areas has enhanced is ability to help athletes of all ages and abilities.
Utilizing chiropractic techniques to mobilize the bones/joints of the spine as well the joints that make up the knee, ankle, elbow, shoulder; when indicated – is a very effective treatment for keeping the body tuned up and working effectively. It is also imperative that muscles are responding appropriately allowing the joints to move accordingly. We are trained in various soft tissue techniques and laser therapy to address this aspect of structural health. This means you get better faster!
In addition to injury care, we offer sports performance enhancement services. We will evaluate your body’s kinetic chain, the “whole machine," by assessing posture, functional movement and proprioception (your body’s ability to sense its environment and determine an effective response). If one part of the machine is weak or "off," the entire body will not be able to perform at an optimal level. We want you firing on all cylinders and back to your optimal performance level.
Whether you goal is playing pass in the back yard or being competitive in your next event, our focus is to optimize your next opportunity.
