Demands from sport, occupation or sedentary lifestyles can exert strain on our bodies through static postures and repetitive motions over time. Much like the engine in your car, should one area of the body start to falter the other parts work overtime in order to compensate. This can result in breakdown and ultimately, bodily injury. Athletic injuries tend to result from direct impact, poor training practices, lack of conditioning or insufficient warm-up and stretching, amongst others. These factors, in addition to changes to the cells and mechanics of the supporting tissue, can result in chronic pain and propagate future injury.
Fortunately, most musculoskeletal injuries can be treated effectively with proper management and education. Dr. McKay employs multiple techniques such as soft tissue therapy, instrument assisted soft tissue therapy, athletic taping, spinal or joint manipulation and functional movement assessment to employ the most effective treatment for the patient.
Whether your sport is in the office or on the football field, We are committed to restoring and maintaining the optimal health and pain-free function of your body.
Kinetic Therapy strongly believes that inter-collaborative care is vital to an individual’s plan of management in order to deliver the best multi-model approach to treatment.
