As a life long athlete I have endured injuries, which kept me from performing at my fullest. Much of the time I was given ibuprofen by athletic trainers for pain relief, and like many athletes, I just took them simply because I was told to.
Once I enrolled in chiropractic college I quickly realized what fascinated me most was the education I received on proper movement patterns and biomechanics. Instantly I understood the ibuprofen I took did far more damage than the initial injury it was meant to “treat.” Today, I see so many patients in that same boat. They are looking for answers. They want to know why they feel the way they do and most importantly they are tired of taking pills.
Every new patient that comes into my office receives a comprehensive functional fitness assessment to gauge where they are currently, and determine which steps are necessary to achieve the goals they want to reach. Whether it is starting to exercise again (or for the first time), or simply being able to play with their kids without pain getting in the way.
