  Louis Valencia: From Prevention to Optimal Health and Elite Athletic Performance

Chiropractic Sports Care

Our health care practice is a comprehensive and therapeutic approach to managing injuries and illnesses. We strive at helping our patients maintain an active lifestyle and offer a supportive and integrated approach where personal growth and positive health changes can occur.   We help our patients learn, practice, and master new skills in lifestyle choices related to exercise, good posture, diet, nutritional supplements, relaxation, play, and social connectedness for overcoming the underlying structural, physiological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual aspects of their injuries and illnesses. Ultimately our patients learn to take responsibility for their own health through their daily lifestyle choices rather than by relying on physicians to cure them.

 

We offer state-of-the-art evaluations, conservative treatment, and active rehabilitation for sports, occupational, and personal injuries. Our expertise is in the prevention and proper management of traumatic and repetitive motion injuries of the spine, pelvis, extremities, and soft tissues of the body. This integrated approach of chiropractic, fitness, and ergonomics offers individuals with known neuromusculoskeletal problems, those with multiple risk factors, and the healthy individual an opportunity to decrease their risk of injury and increase their athletic performance by adopting new lifestyle skills which enables our patient's mind, body, and spirit to function at peak efficiency.

 

 We use the reactivation approach, which consists of the following:

 

  1. Detailed history of your activity intolerances associated with your pain, especially those that interfere with your activities.
  2. Examination of the functional pathology related to your intolerances, so that the movement dysfunction, which is responsible for your pain can be determined.
  3. Treatment: advice, manipulation, and exercise, which are directed to restoring function to the key link responsible for the biomechanical overload.
  4. Audit the results. Goals for functional reactivation and training are set (i.e. removal of activity intolerances) and reevaluations are done regularly to determine your status.  Your goals will be adjusted as needed.
