Recognition, Relief, Recovery
Our chiropractic office provides a conservative approach to treating musculoskeletal injuries of athletes,”weekend warriors”, and non-athletes in a timely manner to get them back into play. While focusing on sports injuries, we combine soft tissue techniques, rehab exercises, physiotherapy modalities, functional and therapeutic taping to traditional chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Andrea Buccino spends time with her patients to understand their needs, and then works with them therapeutically to get them back on their functioning feet without pain.
After a full history and exam, treatment may include electric stimulation with heat or ice, ultrasound, exercise and rehab therapy, soft tissue mobilization techniques (including pin and stretch, active muscle release, cross-frictional massage, and/or instrument assisted mobilization), and traditional chiropractic adjustments using Diversified, Mobilization, SOT blocking, and/or Activator techniques.

Dr. Buccino combines chiropractic adjustments with soft tissue techniques to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Patients are often treated during function, not simply in the static posture. This allows the provocation of pain or restriction to be easily identified, and doctor and patient can work through the motion of the injury, while utilizing the kinetic chain during treatment. Treatment often includes one or more of the following: Instrument Assisted Techniques, myofascial release techniques, cross-frictional massage, PIR/PFS stretching, and kinesiology taping.
Kinesiology taping works with the body to allow full range of motion while assisting and giving support to the muscle. It also helps increase circulation and stimulates nerve endings. There is no latex, and the tape is water resistant. SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping) helps retrain the muscular motion patterns along with a supportive and neurosensory component.
Each patient will also have at-home rehab exercises to further continue the progression of tissue healing.
