Each of the three chiropractors at Premier Sports and Spine Center has a specialty in treating athletes and rehabilitating sports injuries. In turn, they take extra time before any treatment to figure out the root cause of a patient’s pain or discomfort. They’ll then draw from a wide variety of techniques that help to treat such ailments as headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and tennis elbow.
After consulting with each patient, the chiropractors can realign the spine using manual adjustments, or untie any triple-knotted muscles using massage therapy; they even harness ultrasound wave technology that can treat scar tissue. The specialists also focus on preventing injury; to that end, the center has created customized exercise programs, or they can tape up one’s feet to help the muscles maneuver more smoothly.
Massera's skilled massage therapists rely on open communication to forge fully custom bodywork. In a private room bathed in soft light, nimble hands blend deep-tissue techniques with long, flowing Swedish strokes to improve range of motion in struggling limbs and range of emotion in featureless potato heads. Specialized sessions may incorporate sports-massage maneuvers to help prevent injury, improve athletic performance, and revive muscles after vigorous workouts. Massera's tailored knead-a-thons can also pummel deeply embedded knots with trigger-point therapy, which focuses the therapist's determined digits on specific pressure points.
