What to Expect from the Sports Medicine Specialty Programs

We work closely with you to decide which treatment options are right for you. Using advanced testing procedures to understand the full extent of your injury, our experts will help determine which approach will give you the best results.

Fitness Science Training

Our Fitness Science Training program is an evidence-based approach to enhancing athletic ability and making athletes better, faster and stronger. Our program is unlike any other sports performance program in the area and includes in-depth evaluations of flexibility, agility, power, strength and stability.

Active Release Technique (ART)

Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system and movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Every ART session is a combination of examination and treatment.

Dry Needling

Dry needling uses thin needles, which are inserted in and around sore muscles or tender "trigger points," to improve flexibility and reduce pain. Dry needling zeroes in on the source of pain to reduce muscle tension and increase blood flow to speed the healing process. 

This technique is used to improve athletic performance by helping relax muscles so you can get the most from your body. It can also benefit individuals suffering from acute or chronic pain, and other conditions involving muscular-skeletal, headaches, plantar fasciitis and more. 

To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call (585) 341-9037.
