Sports Optimization & Rehabilitation

Dr. Underwood has spent the last seven years working with numerous University and High School athletes as well as Semi/Pro Athletes. (The key to quickly healing athletic injuries is to completely understand the problem through a thorough examination as well as Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA).  This assessment helps localize the exact injured tissues/joint as well as underlying factors that may have made the athlete more likely to become injured). Spinal and extremity adjustments will restore normal function to injured and dysfunctional joints.  Active Release Techniques have been shown to be especially effective at rapidly returning athletes to their full potential. Specific rehabilitative stretches and exercises will be prescribed to stabilize athletes and help prevent another injury. If needed, Dr. Underwood may recommend structured rehabilitation with a Physical Therapist.
