Our doctors have advanced practice board certifications as Chiropractic Sport Physicians. Both orthopedic examinations and functional movement examinations are performed.
Orthopedic examinations help diagnose the nature of your injury or pain, and Functional movement evaluations tell us where to focus our treatment.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT:
SFMA is a set of seven full-body movement tests evaluated and scored in patients experiencing pain. The assessment logically breaks down dysfunctional patterns pinpointing the root cause as a mobility problem or a stability/motor control problem. Depending on the results, manual therapies or corrective exercises will be used as treatment.
All schools in Oregon City require a OSAA sports physical prior to participation. These physicals can be performed by licensed Chiropractic Physicians and are designed to screen youth athletes for conditions that may limit their ability to participate in extracurricular sports safely, and look for conditions that may silent until provoked by intense exercise.
- Sports physicals are non-invasive easy to perform in under 30 minutes.
- Required at least every two years for those in grades 7 through 12.
