What kind of Athletes do we work with?
Any and all. Despite both Dr. Jack & Dr. Peyton’s personal experiences with a plethora of sports – the key to working with all athletes is understanding the fundamental biomechanics required for any movement.
In humans, there are no bad movements when we train for full range, dynamic, controlled, and precise actions. By uncovering many of the common deficits in athletes, their performance is going to improve instantaneously.
There are of course benefits to a specialist coach for teaching proper form in any sport; although, our job is to make sure your don’t have any limitations in movement and that your tissues possess the capacity for work loads you wish to put on them.
Sport specificity training is best utilized in the context of a mechanically stable structure. That is our goal.

Our Methods of Treating Sports Injuries
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)
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.
These tools are often used in conjunction with movement. The vacuum created in the cup creates suction against the skin to open the underlying tissues and facilitate circulation.
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.
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.
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 area in space. This type of training is essential in injury prevention because it teaches the muscles to respond to unexpected forces.
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.
