Our Mindset
At Elite Spine & Sport, we believe that your situation is unique.

We take a very global, comprehensive and individual view of each case.  Here, we don’t just look at the site of pain such as an elbow, shoulder or low back; we look at the body as a whole.  We assess how your entire body moves, stabilizes and coordinates itself as you move through space.   We then take this information and determine WHAT was causing your elbow, shoulder, low back etc. to be inordinately stressed.  It is always our goal to deliver you more than just symptom relief, but REAL ANSWERS to why your symptoms occur.

Treatment Approach
At Elite Spine & Sport our approach to treatment is very hands-on.

Once the origin of your symptoms is identified, we’ll utilize a variety of integrative, evidence-based treatment techniques aimed at improving the quality of your movement.  You will likely leave here feeling lighter, more mobile, more stable and without your area of complaint feeling as stressed or reactive as it was in the past.

Treatments and Techniques that we commonly utilize include:
  • Joint Manipulations based upon Motion Palpation
  • The McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT)
  • Active Release Techniques®
  • Functional Rehabilitation Exercises
  • Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization
  • Nutritional Counseling and Support
  • Kinesiology Taping using RockTape’s Functional Movement Techniques
