Injury Evaluation

Here at Sports Recovery Annex, we know that sports-related injuries need to be evaluated and treated quickly in order to get you back in action. We can treat both acute injuries (such as ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee & shoulder injuries) and Overuse injuries (rotator cuff, tendinitis, stress fractures). We can properly assess your sports injury and evaluate how to best treat it for optimal healing time. Whether you’re a professional, student or recreational athlete, we can analyze your injury and give you treatment options that will have you playing on the field again in no time.

Diagnostic Digital X-Ray

Digital x-rays are a tool we can use to diagnose where your sports injuries are coming from. By analyzing the bony and soft tissue anatomy with medical imaging, we can find why your pain is being caused and generate solutions to fix that problem.

There is no preparation for these examinations and can be done in conjunction with any other services you may need during your visit.

Nutritional Counseling

If your exercise game is consistent but you’re not reaching the results you desire, nutritional counseling may be a great solution for you. Diet and exercise go hand in hand to give your body the tools to perform at its best. Our nutritionists at Sports Recovery Annex can design a nutrition plan just for you so that your body will get all the energy and good intake that it needs to function efficiently. High-quality nutrition is a crucial part of having a healthy lifestyle and we know how to encourage you into forming the right eating habits.

Functional Movement Screening (FMS)

Functional Movement Screening is an innovative system used to evaluate the quality of movement patterns exposing dangerous movement in people of all ages. Following these screenings, corrective exercises can be prescribed to overcome the detected deficiencies. Functional movement screenings are the first step to decreasing probability of injuries and preventing injuries by finding and fixing your weakest link.

Following a corrective therapy plan based on the results of a Functional Movement Screening has been proven to:
• Improve performance
• Improve efficiency of movement
• Improve movement symmetry
• Improve balance, stability and mobility

KT Taping

What does K-Taping do?
K-Tape is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a constant basis. The taping is non-restrictive and allows for full range of motion. In contrast, more traditional sports tape can be wrapped around a joint for more stabilization and support during an athletic event. K-tape can be used on sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxation, herniated disc), knee and shoulder conditions.

The tape is applied over the affected area with the muscles in a stretched position. Then tape is applied from one end of the muscle to the other with very little to no stretch on the tape. In general, the tape is applied from the origin to insertion of the muscle for support and from insertion to origin for rehab. Our recovery specialists are trained to customize K-taping techniques for individual patients and injuries.
