What is "Sports Chiropractic"?
RSC Mendon is an Excellus BCBS Primary Spine Practitioner
It is a chiropractor with an advanced expertise in both the prevention and rehabilitation of sports related injury with expert level knowledge in sport-specific strength and conditioning techniques, and optimal bio-mechanics. Treatments focus on myofascial release combined with joint mobilization.
Here are just a few of the treatments we may provide:
Active Muscle Release
Chiropractic wellness care
Core strengthening exercises
Instrument Assisted Techniques
Taping (RockTape, KT Tape, SpiderTech, etc..)
"Experts estimate that 90 percent of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase their performance potential. All National Football League (NFL) teams rely on DCs in varying capacities, and 77 percent of athletic trainers have referred players to a chiropractor for evaluation or treatment." -ACA
Active muscle release is used to allow for free and unimpeded movement of muscles, tendons, nerves and joints, to allow for a dramatic change in comfort, flexibility and strength. For elite athletes, it is used to "dial in" to the athlete’s injury to improve their form and function. This form of treatment generally provides long lasting results, meaning less treatments.
What to Expect
The mission of RSC Mendon is to provide better overall health to the community, while improving the population’s understanding of health and Wellness
