Boulder Physical Therapy
The chiropractors at Boulder Sports Chiropractic incorporate a physical therapy approach into every treatment plan, ensuring that our patients are becoming stronger with every visit. Chiropractic care and physical therapy can work hand in hand, as both have the same goal of helping to improve the quality of the patient’s life. The major differences are the techniques used. Our doctors use the differences to their advantage and they incorporate both techniques to provide well-rounded care to each patient that steps into our clinic. With the use of the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), our sports chiropractors are able to break down normal human motion to better evaluate movement patterns that have the likely potential to lead to injury in the near future. The sports physical therapy aspect of this care comes into play when we incorporate the manual therapy of joint and soft tissue mobilization, sports performance, and muscle coordination with our chiropractic techniques.
The SFMA provided at our Boulder physical therapy clinic utilizes seven key movement patterns which are evaluated for asymmetries, pain provoking patterns, and dysfunctional movements. This allows a better understanding of what the cause of the pain is rather than simply focusing on treating the symptoms. It ensures that both tissue/muscle dysfunctions are addressed, while simultaneously correcting any poor movement patterns that have been developed over time. Each patient is given specific functional rehabilitate exercises based on their pain, symptoms, and movement deficiencies.
Sports Physical Therapy
Sports tend to lead to injuries and pain due to the over-use of certain muscles, collision injuries, or the general impact the body takes during sports. Chiropractic treatment and sports physical therapy methods can prepare your body for the continued strain that sports put on it. By using the SFMA the clinicians at Boulder Sports Chiropractic can not only help to minimize your pain, but also prevent future injury from occurring. This is a great avenue for recovery that is non-invasive, and healing can come naturally without medication.
