What does sports chiropractic involve?

The sports chiropractors at Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab offer various non- and minimally invasive therapies. They could suggest:

Sports massage

During a sports massage, a certified massage therapist rubs and kneads your skin, muscles, and other soft tissues. Massage releases tension, increases blood flow, and promotes healing.


Cupping, or myofascial decompression, uses silicone or glass cups to create a vacuum over your skin. Applying suction to specific areas of your body relieves tight muscle knots, increases blood flow, and reduces inflammation.

Dry needling

Dry needling is similar to cupping in relieving tight muscles (trigger points). The difference is that your provider inserts thin, sharp needles into the trigger points rather than creating suction over them with cups.

Placing the needles into specific trigger points relieves pain, promotes blood flow, and speeds healing.

Biomechanical taping

Biomechanical taping uses kinesiology tape to assist with repetitive movements. It helps reduce the load on muscles and other soft tissues during exercise, training, or competition.

Active release techniques

Active release techniques are manual treatments that your Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab provider uses to relieve muscle tension and restore your full range of motion. These techniques can effectively treat muscle, fascia, tendon, nerve, and ligament injuries.

Corrective exercise programming

Some sports injuries affect how you perform specific exercises and workout techniques. Corrective exercise programming teaches you to overcome these challenges. Your Kinetic Sports Medicine and Rehab provider develops a corrective exercise program that promotes healing and reduces injury recurrence.
