Our adjustments are an innovative, research-based blend of manual joint adjustments and soft tissue manipulation. Dr. Zimmerman is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP). This additional knowledge and experience aids him in taking care of issues from head to toe. Spinal adjustments are very effective at treating back pain and headaches, but extremity adjusting of the arms and legs are just as important to treating pain and maintaining your health. Being able to assess the entire body is vital to establishing and correcting the root cause of your pain.
Pain and injuries are some of the leading reasons why golfers are unable to play consistently or improve their game. A TPI screening is an analysis developed by the golf fitness leaders at Titleist Performance Institute intended to identify limitations in mobility and stability throughout the body. These specific objectives are used by Dr. Zimmerman to correct pain-causing limitations in your swing and communicate with your golf instructor and fitness professional for a clear plan of action to keep you on the course.
**For assessments for other sports or general functional ability, please see Functional Assessment.
Often times we are unaware of how our body is moving through space, especially the subtle shifts. These shifts and errant movement patterns lead to overload and degeneration. Our functional assessment is designed to analyze the body when still, in motion, and under demand. These screenings are a fantastic tool to aid you, or trainer, in customizing your exercise routine.
Scar Tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive stress. This scar tissue is made from collagen just like our skin but without blood supply it dies, dries out, constricts and becomes brittle. Scar tissue fastened to tissues not normally connected, is called an adhesion. Adhesion can spread, entrapping nerves, causing pain and numbness or limiting range of motion. Un-diagnosed pain and restricted mobility are likely to be caused by this adhesion.
Rapid Release elicits the Tonic Vibration Reflex (TVR), quickly relaxing muscles. Vibrating muscles between 100 and 200Hz triggers the Tonic Vibration Reflex. This neurological effect quickly relaxes muscle cramps, spasms and muscle guarding, all the pain that comes with it. By operating in the middle of that band, Rapid Release is unique and efficient in creating this effect. Use Rapid Release Technology’s patented vibration technique to elicit the TVR and increase mobility!
