CHIROPRACTORS FOR FAMILY CARE AND SPORTS MEDICINE
We use several techniques at Cross-up Chiro, depending on our patient’s needs. One or more techniques may be used to provide the best results for you.
Active Release TECHNIQUE (ART)
Sports & Fire Cupping
This tool comes from ancient chinese and mayan practice. The vacuum created in the cup creates suction against the skin to open the underlying tissues and facilitate circulation.
This is the use of a thick resistance band around joints and soft tissues of the upper and lower body. The band grabs hold of the skin and underlying connective tissue, and then movement is used to floss and release the muscles, nerves, and vessels below.
This is the use of a weighted roller on larger muscles – mainly of the lower body. This is excellent for working tension out of the hamstrings, quadriceps, and gluteals, while improving the reliance of those muscles. Temper means to prepare the muscle for heavier loads.
A gua sha tool with a beveled edge is used to glide along the muscles to promote fluid exchange and break up contracted tissues. This is great for accessing deeper tension in areas with more layers of muscle.
Spinal Stability training
In cases where spinal pain in unaffected by soft tissue release, there is a clear case for spinal instability that leads to shearing of the vertebra. This causes reflexive spasms in the surrounding musculature. Stability training off loads stress from the spine onto the girdle of support musculature.
Strength & Conditioning
Proprioceptive (Balance & Coordination) Training
Proprioception is a sensory feedback system in the body that is continuously sending signals to the muscles about where they are in space. This type of training is essential in injury prevention because it teaches the muscles to respond to unexpected forces. This system is the foundation of all training.
Principles of the following:
Donnie Thompson (World Record Powerlifter), Kelly Starrett (PT, Crossfit Trainer, Mobility Coach), National Academy of Sport Medicine, Ben Patrick (Knees Over Toes Guy/Athletic Training Group Founder), Dr. Stuart McGill PhD (Backfit Pro Inc), Mark Bell (Super Training Gym/Powerproject Host), Stan Efferding (Vertical Diet & Training), Thomas Myers (Fascial Trains)
“Our focus is on finding and fixing the underlying problem – not just masking it.”
