Dr. James Werner is a forward thinking practitioner who specializes in enhancing movement capabilities for improved performance, injury prevention and injury recovery. From his time as Sports Performance intern in NCAA collegiate facilities to a graduate of the University of Western States with a Doctor of Chiropractic and a MS in Sports Medicine, Dr. Werner has had the opportunity to treat and train elite athletes. Through these experiences Dr. Werner combines joint manipulation, neurofunctional acupuncture, rehabilitation, soft tissue modalities and training load management to your specific case.
Athletes are inherently competitive, so it doesn't matter what level you compete at (recreational to professional) not performing at less than your best is frustrating.
The older we get and more repetitive the activities we perform are, our body has to adapt. With time tissues lose pliability which creates tightness, discomfort and decreases performance. Treatments designed to optimize performance counter act this by addressing segmental joint motion, tissue mobility and neuromuscular mechanisms to improve your range of motion, decrease discomfort and improve power output.
Successful recovery from an injury is individualized to your current state, specific needs and goals while holding true to the physiologic and biological adaption process.
The human body is extremely adaptable which is why we must restore the mind muscle connection by maintaining pain free movements and activities. The goal is have you return to work or sport soon as possible by allowing the stabilizing muscles stabilize and the prime movers to move you.
Normalizing biomechanics, improving range of motion and decreasing pain are of upmost importance for both pre and post surgical individuals.
The greater an individuals strength levels and range of motion are prior to surgery will improve recovery time and yield greater post surgical outcomes. This is achieved through enhancing the body's adaptability to the new biomechanical leverages and altered sensory input.
