Whenever you are involved in sports, there is a possibility for injury. Athletic injury happens to everyone from the weekend warrior to the elite cyclist. Dr. Bramble has participated in various sports including soccer, tennis, cross country, swimming, basketball, and skiing. Dr. Ouellette has participated in the athletic art of dance, along with training in yoga and Pilates. Between the two, they have wide personal knowledge of sports injuries, and have both honed their diagnostic and therapeutic skills to help aid their active patients.
Often times, injuries from athletic endeavors are sprains/strains. A strain is an injury to your muscle and tendon, and a sprain is an injury to your ligaments and joint capsules. These injuries create pain, swelling, and inflammation. These injuries also often lead to compensation where other areas of one’s body work harder and thus suffer more stress than those tissues were designed to withstand. This can lead to increased injury and pain. Though injury is common, there are treatments available to aid in recovery time and improve performance. Chiropractic is an excellent option to bring you back to peak performance and beyond.
Our doctors looks at the biomechanics of your body, how your body moves and handles stress. Not only can chiropractic care expedite your healing, it can also help you boost your performance. Dr. Bramble and Dr. Ouellette look at the balance of your muscles, the motion of your joints, and your movement patterns. From that information, they develop a treatment plan with a focus on your goals. The doctors are skilled in adjusting not only the spine, but also shoulder, wrists, ankles, hips, and knees. Additionally, they have training in massage techniques that help break up scar tissue and improve the function of muscles.
