Sports Injury Treatment
Hundreds of professional and olympic athletes have long embraced chiropractic to improve their performance. Adjusting the spine and extremities helps to improve muscle balance, response time, avoid injury, and decrease recovery time. Dr. Barnett also has advanced training in this area and is working toward postdoctoral certifications
Focus on your Rehabilitation
Your first appointment will be no different from the usual osteopathic consultation and evaluation (see osteopathy page). You will be asked specific questions related to your particular sport or even to demonstrate some movements. Your diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed in the usual way.
Treatment is likely to involve the use of osteopathic techniques within the treatment room combined with a more specific exercise. The aim is to return to full physical activity.
