- In addition to chiropractic adjustments (joint manipulations), sports chiropractic places a lot of importance on the care of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) as well as the proper activation of these muscles during training (neuro-muscular system).
Different analysis and treatment techniques are used such as: Active Release Techniques (ART), Graston technique, neuro-proprioceptive taping (Kinesiotaping), SFMA, etc.
These techniques generally aim to break down adhesions between muscle, ligament and tendon fibers while restoring joint range of motion. Rehabilitation exercises (stretching, warm-up and strengthening) and various advice (technique and nutrition) complete the care for an optimal recovery of the athlete.
Momentum Chiropractic's chiropractors can refer the athlete for interdisciplinary work within the clinic if the athlete has more specific needs for his or her sports performance.

Active Release Techniques
A method of soft tissue analysis and treatment that provides active release of chronic damage to nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascias.
A method of soft tissue analysis and treatment that provides active release of chronic damage to nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
This technique is very popular in sports. During training, athletes subject their bodies to intense and repetitive stress. These stresses often create fibrosis/adhesions in the tissues, which in the long run can result in tendonitis, bursitis, periostitis and many musculoskeletal problems, etc.
Combined with chiropractic adjustments, the Active Release technique can increase energy potential, promote movement and optimize sports performance.
Innovative technique using patented stainless steel instruments.
Innovative technique, using patented stainless steel instruments, to specifically localize and treat chronically inflamed and fibrotic soft tissue areas.
The instruments provide a deep frictional massage to loosen muscle adhesions and allow optimal function of the injured muscle.
Diagnostic method for patients with musculoskeletal pain patterns.
Diagnostic method for patients with musculoskeletal pain patterns. This fundamental movement analysis system allows to target the cause of the problems (and not only their painful and/or compensatory manifestation) for mobility or stability/motor control problems.

Neuro-proprioceptive taping is a self-adhesive bandage that has the same elasticity as a healthy muscle.
Neuro-proprioceptive taping is a self-adhesive bandage that has the same elasticity as a healthy muscle. Wearing this bandage does not restrict movement and allows tissue healing without immobilizing a joint (which is not recommended in most cases).
Its application has several therapeutic functions:
- Neuro-muscular rehabilitation
- Pain reduction
- Performance improvement
- Prevention of injuries
- Promote blood circulation and tissue healing
