We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. David Wardy has years of training, expertise and experience. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness. For an athlete to perform at their maximum potential, they have to have a fully functioning nervous system. That's where the power of CHIROPRACTIC comes into play!
At Athlete Recovery Center, we teach our members how to perform special "blueprint" stretches and exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing dysfunctiuon. Many of these corrective stretches and exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your recovery. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our members come to see us to address specific problems they have as a product of their intense training. While we will address each members specific recovery needs, we often find it helpful to "coach" our members towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a recovery plan is to help each and every member achieve the results they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our members is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with recovery? The goal of ARC is to help patients achieve recovery and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. For example, an athlete who is in adrenal fatigue is going to perform very poorly. Nutritional counseling by our experienced nutrition coach can assist a member on their return to optimal health and performance. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for recovery? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our El Paso recovery clinic, we can provide each member with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our recovery center provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their recovery goals. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the member's unique needs. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase range of motion, while also aiding in recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your bodies recovery is no exception. Gait and posture assessments by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. David Wardy can help reveal important information, unlocking the door to improved function and performance.
