How Can Synergy Sports Wellness Institute Help Improve Your Performance in Sports, Part 2

December 16th, 2019 by Synergy

Every athlete knows the basics of how to improve their performance: practice and discipline. As important as those elements are, you may be overlooking therapeutic treatments that give your performance an extra boost. In our last blog, we explained two of our most instrumental treatments for athletes: our Six-Step Speed Prep and our Synergy Release Technique. However, that was simply the tip of the iceberg. Check out these additional procedures and techniques we use to help athletes stay at the top of their game.

Dry needling is a technique that is highly effective for reducing sore muscles. Ultra-thin needles are administered to access specific pressure points depending on where your soreness lies. This empowers you to keep up with an aggressive training regimen without letting sore muscles slow you down. In addition to soothing muscles, dry needling can also help improve the range of motion in your joints.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

It may sound futuristic, but hyperbaric oxygen therapy has long been a tool that athletes have used to maximize their performance. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you breathe in a more concentrated oxygen. That extra oxygen helps to reduce your levels of lactic acid: the natural substance that builds up in your muscles and makes them sore. In addition to revitalizing your muscles the hyperbaric oxygen therapy accelerates your healing process so that you can overcome injuries more quickly and get back to your sport of choice.

Class IV Laser Therapy

A class IV laser is a unique medical tool that has helped countless athletes perform better. It isn’t the traditional “destructive” laser you may envision. It uses infrared radiation and red light to activate certain processes within your body. Most notably, this laser therapy helps your body produce a natural chemical called ATP. ATP gives your muscles the energy they need in order function powerfully. In addition to boosting your ATP, the class IV laser promotes healing so you can recover from any injuries more quickly.

Advanced Muscle Integration Technique (AMIT)

While it is one of the newer techniques we offer, AMIT is already gaining a reputation for its success. With the advanced muscle integration technique, we use specialized strategies to identify seemingly small dysfunctions within specific muscles in your body. Correcting those dysfunctions allows us to help your body function better overall as a cohesive team of muscles and joints. With the impressive results we have seen, our providers at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute are proud to be among the few practitioners who are licensed to perform this technique.

Whether athletics is your career or your hobby, one factor unites all athletes: the spirit of competition. Our experienced team will customize a treatment plan specifically for your needs with the techniques above, along with our Six-Step Speed Prep and our Synergy Release Technique, can allow you to reap the rewards of all your training and hard work.
