Ankle Sprains – They’re a Big Deal

Rehab Now or Suffer Later

The research is very clear, and it has been for a long time. Ankle sprains are more than something we should just push through or wait to heal. We have to re-establish the mechanics of the ankle up into the hips as well as down into the toes. Neglecting this leads us into serious vulnerability throughout the entire lower half of our body.

At Health & Performance Center, we understand this and ensure that our patients either heal correctly the first time or regain their intended strength and range from “glory days” injuries. We do this by utilizing the FRONT LUNGE as both an assessment and end-stage exercise. When the patient can perform a perfect front lunge we know they are in the best position to prevent future sprains and avoid future catastrophic injuries at the knee, hip and low back.

Latest Research Supports HPC’s Joint-Muscle-Movement Approach

We hear it all the time, “I don’t know what to call you when I tell people about you.”

Patients struggle to describe what we do at Health & Performance Center, not because it’s overly complex but because it is so different than anything else out there. We are far more than just another chiropractic office. And you experience so much more than just the chiropractic adjustment.

In short, the results you experience are because we treat joints, muscles, and movements. When you achieve balance in your joints and muscles you can reinforce that in your movements and postures. This obviously sustains and healing environment and prevents misuse and premature degeneration.

Though it seems obvious, research is just getting around to supporting the approach. The primary prevention of pain isn’t the adjustment (though it is absolutely critical). It is the counseling of exercises and safety measures. The chiropractic adjustment is seen as secondary. Thankfully, we do both.

This is important to you for a few reasons:

  1. You decided on the right office.
  2. Regardless of primary or secondary, you know that we will focus on the two most important things to your recovery and long term health.
  3. HPC will never wait to be told what works. We will continue to follow the data and produce results you are looking for.

Congratulations for deciding on the right office. We are blessed to have you as a part of our practice and anyone else you send our way.

Thank you and #keepmoving
