APEX: A Valuable Tool in Your Sports Performance Tool Box

When it comes to being an athlete – it all starts with natural talent. The passion and drive can develop from the moment someone picks up a basketball and makes a basket – or when an ice skater feels the thrill of their first spin on the ice. Innate ability and passion are important for all athletes. But athletes also know the importance of practice, skill development and improvement, strength conditioning, and commitment.

Having partners on the journey to be the best athlete one can be is vital to an athlete’s success and longevity. At Apex Performance and Chiropractic, we love to partner with athletes to improve sports performance through the use of chiropractic care, massage therapy, ART sessions, and corrective exercise. Let’s take a closer look at how we support athlete in their sport performance:


Chiropractic Care for Athletes

To optimize athletic performance and prevent injuries, many athletes are turning to chiropractic care as an integral part of their routine. Chiropractic adjustments aim to improve joint function or mobility of your spine, joints, and muscles. When an athlete’s body has proper joint range of motion, athletes have the potential to perform at their very best. Chiropractic care helps enhance range of motion, flexibility, and overall body mechanics, which can result in improved athletic performance. At Apex, we utilize a variety of techniques such as spinal adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, and therapeutic exercises to promote healing and reduce recovery time. By restoring proper joint function, chiropractic care helps athletes recover from injuries more efficiently and get back to their training and competition sooner.


Massage Therapy

The massage therapy at Apex is different from a spa setting type massage. Our Massage therapy services offer numerous benefits for athletes, including improved circulation, muscle recovery, relaxation, pain management, and injury prevention. By incorporating massage therapy into their training routine, athletes can enhance their performance, reduce the risk of injuries, and support their overall physical and mental well-being. Also, by improving circulation, massage therapy accelerates the muscle recovery process, allowing athletes to bounce back faster from intense workouts and competitions.


Active Release Technique (ART)

Active Release Technique (ART) has emerged as a valuable technique for athletes seeking to enhance their sports performance. Active Release Technique is a specialized manual therapy approach that targets soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. ART can have a profound impact on an athlete’s performance by improving muscle function and enhancing flexibility. By addressing tissue restrictions and imbalances, ART helps athletes achieve optimal muscle activation, leading to more efficient movement patterns and improved athletic performance. Whether it’s enhancing power, speed, or endurance, ART can be a valuable tool in unlocking an athlete’s full potential.


Corrective Exercise

Corrective exercises are targeted movements designed to address specific muscles, mobility restrictions, and faulty movement patterns. We tailor recommended corrective exercises to each athlete’s unique needs, focusing on areas that require improvement to enhance overall performance. As stability is crucial for athletic performance – corrective exercises provide a solid foundation for powerful and precise movements because they focus on improving core stability, joint stability, and overall body control. By targeting stabilizing muscles, such as the deep abdominal muscles and the muscles around the hips and shoulders, athletes can improve their balance, coordination, and proprioception. By seeking guidance from the knowledgeable professionals at Apex, and dedicating time to corrective exercises, athletes can take their performance to new heights and achieve their goals.
