Orthopedic and Sports Injuries
Considering the activity that is important to the patient, we can ensure maximum performance and safety, because we understand how different sports can increase your risk for specific types of injuries, as well as how to prevent or treat these injuries.
At Integrative Touch, we use decades of experience treating sports injuries and working with high level athletes in order to create an appropriate recovery or prevention exercise program for you to ensure a safe return to your sport and continue performing at the highest level.
Patient specific sports and level of competitiveness need to be taken in consideration in order to implement an individual program for each patient according to their needs but also to analyze the reason of injury and avoid future injuries.
Specific techniques such as cupping or Ktaping (as seen on numerous professional athletes) could be used to alleviate pain, or to enhance a better body functioning.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Cupping is used for many purposes, including, but not limited to helping with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
KT Tape is a neuromuscular technique where the therapist applies adhesive bands that support injured muscles or joints without restricting the full range of motion. This can help with muscle recovery, prevent cramps or spasms, as well as over-stretching or over-contraction of muscles, and enhances muscle tone and strength. It also positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory system, facias, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used with other treatments, during the rehabilitative and chronic phases on an injury, as well as for preventative measures.
