Sports injuries and rigorous athletic conditioning, typically disturb normal body mechanics. These minor and/or major disturbances may negatively affect athletic performance. Because of the expertise and extensive training in neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions, sports chiropractic physicians are uniquely skilled in treating the athlete. Doctors of Chiropractic, especially sports chiropractic physicians, are sensitive to joint dysfunction. When a joint is dysfunctional, there are also disturbed neurological reflexes which may result in poorly communicated information to the central nervous system. These diminished reflexes may result in slowed reaction time or may cause muscles to be dysfunctional; tight or inhibited. Numerous studies demonstrate enhanced mechanics of a joint in addition to enhanced nervous system function immediately following chiropractic manipulation.
In addition, we also offer the expertise of physicians trained in traditional medicine. Dr. Rodney Routsong D.O. is Board Certified in Neurosurgery. Although he no longer does surgery, his extensive knowledge and specialized expertise in the management of head injuries, such as concussions, makes him an expert beyond all others.
