Treatment for Optimal Performance
Everyone knows that exercise is a key component for living a healthy lifestyle, and all of the aches, pains and other issues that come along with it. The more you work out, the more your muscles and joints are going to feel pained, weak, or sluggish.
This can keep you from reaching a top level of performance. Of course, there are numerous factors that go into your athletic and sports injury treatment including proper nutrition, dehydration, overuse, improper biomechanics and even proper muscle imbalance.
There are many injuries that can come as a result of physical activity. Many of these injuries will be found in the extremities including the shoulders, elbows, hands, knees and ankles. There are a number of precautions that can be taken to help to limit the chances of receiving an injury while playing sports competitively.

We use a range of different range of motion exercises in our sports injury treatment program.. Although range of motion exercises are common in athletic and sports care, they are also used to treat arthritis and other issues as well. There is both active range of motion exercises (AROM), as well as active assistive range of motion exercises (AAROM). Active assistive range of motion exercises are generally prescribed to help individuals that require strengthening or gentle stretching of joints, muscles and cartilage.
- Stationary Bicycles
Stationary bicycles are a great way to help treat issues with knees and hip joints. They are typically prescribed to help those that have suffered injuries (whether traumatic or through ongoing usage). Stationary bicycles are excellent at treating and strengthening the lower back and extremities.
- Walking Training
Walking is an excellent exercise for a wide range of different conditions. Walking training is used to visually inspect the interaction between the lower back, and lower extremities. The walk is watched throughout its full rotation process with the initial contact, loading response, mid stance and terminal stance all playing key roles in the observation process.
Dr. Pineda also offers mobilization exercises which are intended to increase the mobility of either the soft tissues and joints. Mobilization is usually used to help individuals who are having mobility issues, reducing stiffness and helping to create pain relief for athletes over time.
