Sports Rehabilitation Solutions
Your individualized care plan is based on your wants and what your body requires. The treatment options we offer include
- Kinesio Tape and RockTape: This kinesiology process can aid those with plantar fasciitis, low back pain and sciatica by lifting skin from muscle. As a result, the muscles decompress, and you feel less pain. Dr. Palazzo is a certified RockTape provider, well-versed in the taping techniques that will return you to a healthy state.
- Diversified Technique: This common chiropractic method involves high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts. It’s designed to reduce the underlying discomfort in the spine.
- Soft Tissue Technique: Many techniques are available to work on the body’s soft tissues, including Active Release Techniques®, Graston and RockBlades. It’s an excellent option to treat neck and back pain, reducing swelling and improving healing.
- Massage Therapy: Therapeutic massage is effective in reducing inflammation and swelling of the muscles. Techniques such as trigger point therapy address specific points, and we may also use cross-friction massage, nerve mobilization, active inhibitory resistance and post-isometric relaxation.
- Rehabilitative Exercises: These exercises reduce swelling and pain while teaching joints and muscles how to work properly. They’ll be customized to meet your needs, correcting movement dysfunction and getting you back to your sport as quickly as possible.
- Physiotherapy: Massage, therapeutic exercises, mechanical traction, moist heat, cryotherapy, ultrasound and interferential electrical muscle stimulation can get to the heart of your problem and prevent future issues.

In addition to the above solutions, we offer spinal and postural screenings. We can also provide lifestyle advice to assist in improving your body’s performance abilities on the field or court.
