No athlete likes to be sidelined with an injury. The goals of NTXMSK is to get an athlete safely back into action as soon as possible. Return to play refers to the point in recovery from an injury when an athlete is able to go back to playing sports at a pre-injury level. With the right game plan, from early diagnosis and treatment to full functional rehabilitation, procedures at NTXMSK safely accelerate your return to play.
When the body is worked hard, the muscles and connective tissue can develop small impingements, micro-tears, and strains. Skeletal structural misalignments occur. These subtle conditions affect performance by restricting range of motion and inhibiting healthy muscle function. And, they often are not detectable by imaging procedures.
A physician trained in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine is able to palpitate the tissue, locating conditions that prevent optimal physical function. Release of these physical restrictions allows the body to move more freely and the muscles to function properly. Optimal function of the body allows an athlete to achieve their highest level of performance. Learn more
Musculoskeletal tissue does not always heal the way we would like. Small tears in tissue, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments, can go unnoticed. Small tears become big tears. Healing is slow and often incomplete. Recovery time keeps you out of the action.
The primary objective for NTXMSK when treating musculoskeletal injuries is to get you back into action fast and safely. Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) does just this by supplying autologous cells that accelerate and enhance the healing process without the down time of surgery.
Optimal muscle function and performance
Skeletal muscles are made up of hundreds or even thousands of muscle fibers that are bundled together and wrapped in connective tissue. Muscles contract when these string-like structures slide over each other. Sometimes overuse, trauma, or poor warm up causes the muscle tissue and the fascia surrounding them to become irritated and constricted, resulting in restricted movement and less than optimal performance. Muscles are unable to function in a full range of motion or at full strength. Other structural areas step in to compensate. The musculoskeletal system no longer functions as it is designed. Removal of structural blockages with OMT and quick repair of compromised tissue keeps your body functioning at its peak, both now and in the future. Learn more
