Dr. Abby is board certified in Chiropractic Care and Physiotherapy. She practices what is considered ‘Sports Chiropractic’, meaning addressing a whole body approach and treating both the soft tissues as well as the joints. As a professional wakeboarder and athlete herself, her experience translates into sessions that evaluate functional movements, mechanics, soft tissue restriction and joint mobility to get you functioning at your best and remain injury free!
“Recover faster and make living fit a little more comfortable!”
The chiropractic adjustment is done to increase mobility in regions where restrictions are found whether that is the spine or extremities. Joints thrive from mechanical motion to receive blood flow and nutrients. Restrictions can lead to pain and degeneration as well as altered mechanics and compensations to movement patterns elsewhere (meaning other aches and pains!)
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (Scraping)
This technique targets adhesions and scar tissue that builds up in the fascia, or the covering of the muscle. These restrictions can lead to decreased range of motion, altered movement patterns, and pain.
Myofascial Release and Active Release Technique
Myofascial release is used to help conditions that affect fascia (connective tissue), major muscle groups, tendons and ligaments. The goal of myofascial release is to restore normal mobility and “glide” between muscular tissue and nerves. This is done using both active and passive type massage, trigger point therapy, and the “pin and stretch” technique.
Cupping (Fascial Decompression)
Much like IASTM, cupping is targeting the fascia, or the covering of the muscle to stretch and pull it away from the muscle. Cupping uses sustained suction to lift the fascia up and increase the blood flow to the tissue beneath. This stretching and blood flow leads to faster healing and increased mobility.
Technique and Form Modification
During a session, movement patterns of typical exercises will be looked at ( ie. Squat, push press, pull up etc.) to address faulty mechanics and improve form. Finding these faults can decrease the chance of injury but also increase your performance.
Stretching and Mobility Training
During a session, range of motion issues will be address and advise and techniques will be shown to self-treat. This may include traditional stretches, yoga, foam rolling exercises, lacrosse ball techniques or banded stretching.
Most athletes are interested in reducing their recovery time following intense exercise or sporting events. Recent scientific studies have shown that lymphatic therapy provides physiological changes that indicate improved muscular recovery. The lymphatic system does not have a pump like the heart does. Air Relax delivers that natural sequential compression and flusher waste, which causes soreness and fatigue in the muscles.
