A chiropractic adjustment (aka manipulation or mobilization) is the most effective tool in addressing restricted joints. Often a chiropractic adjustment is thought to just treat back pain, but it can be applied to any joint in the body. Improper joint movement will interfere with the overall movement quality of the body and can lead to pain and/or tissue damage. Chiropractic adjustments safely and effectively restore motion to restricted joints and normalize the movement of the body as a whole.
Adjusting involves placing the body into a safe position to encourage the desired movement and applying a quick, specific force into the joint. Chiropractic adjustments are very effective at alleviating pain and improving athletic performance.
Physiotherapy / Exercise / Rehabilitation
Correcting any major muscle imbalances before beginning your rehabilitative exercise program is vital. Muscle imbalances prevent your joints from aligning and functioning properly. Poor joint function will disrupt your ability to move — putting you at greater risk for injury, chronic muscle pain, and joint pain.
That’s why at IHSP, we first look at how your body functions as a whole before prescribing rehabilitation exercises. Movement is a coordinated effort involving your brain, spinal cord, and muscles. We will assess your movement and any muscle imbalances using the NMS Functional Evaluation.
The NMS Functional Evaluation pinpoints your body’s weak links — such as poor posture, lack of flexibility, joint dysfunction, decreased strength, endurance, stability, balance, or faulty movement patterns. Based on the examination’s findings, we will design a corrective exercise routine tailored to your exact needs. And once your body is balanced, and more stable, a total fitness program can be designed to keep you performing properly.
Kinesiology taping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.
Integrative Health and Sports Performance utilizes one of the most powerful laser therapy systems in the Dayton area. The K-Laser Class IV unit delivers high doses of laser energy to the treatment site, which means high therapeutic benefit in a short amount of time. Laser therapy is used as an essential pain management tool with collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes. Laser therapy can be used as a stand alone treatment option or can be used synergistically with other treatments such as chiropractic care, massage therapy, or physical therapy.
At IHSP, we believe that given the proper nutrition your body has the amazing capability of keeping itself healthy. We also believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patient’s needs. For those reasons and many more, we proudly recommend Standard Process whole food supplements and Advocare nutritional and sports performance products. Whether your goal is to lose weight, add muscle mass, have more energy, or just increase your overall health we have the resources to help reach your goal.
Soft-tissue therapies are treatment protocols designed to treat conditions dealing with muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments, and other connective tissues. When muscles, or other tissues, are overstressed or injured, our bodies use scar tissue as a patch repair. This is a natural part of the healing process, however if the cause of the injury is not alleviated properly the muscle will accumulate too much scar tissue and then becomes a problem.
Soft-tissue therapies work out the scar tissue and help the muscle heal normally with long-lasting results. Numerous soft-tissue therapy techniques are employed at IHSP including: massage therapy, myofascial release, Graston technique, Active Release Technique, and trigger point therapy.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points (TrP) are discrete, focal, hyper-irritable spots located in a taut band of muscle. They produce local and referred pain and often accompany both chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions. They form due to repetitive microtrauma and often cause muscle spasm, strain, and stiffness, and decreased range of motion. Trigger point are incredibly common and often times go unnoticed. They can complicate or delay healing in other musculoskeletal conditions and often mimic other disorders, especially chronic headaches or migraines.

We work closely with some of the most well respected medical doctors and specialists in the Miami Valley. If there is a problem found upon examination that is beyond conservative treatment; we have an established referral network of multi-disciplinary physicians in the area to ensure our patients are getting the highest standard of care.
