About Hybrid Health Sports Chiropractic & Rehab //
Hybrid Health Sports Chiropractic & Rehabilitation was founded on the idea that people can only perform at their greatest when their bodies are functioning at 100%. If our most centralized structure (or spine, in which EVERY THING ties into) isn't functioning correctly, then how is the rest of the body supposed to produce the results we are looking for? All of our muscles receive feedback from our skeletal system, so if the skeletal system is not moving properly, then how are the muscles supposed to work at their prime? To dive a little deeper, how are your organs and other tissues supposed to be functioning properly if there is a problem at the start of the chain of information?
Look at your spine as your foundation. If the foundation of a house is weak in areas or is cracking under pressure, the house will not stand. Our spine is the same way. If the spine is not offering the correct support, stabilization, and movement our bodies are not getting what they need to STRIVE. Yes, we can still function, just as that house did, but we are unable to determine for how long before we start to notice the breakdown.
Hybrid Health's goal is to get you moving better, feeling, better, healing better. We are here to help you be the best version of yourself. It might just surprise you how much better your life could be!

Spinal & Joint Manipulation
Our skeletal system is composed of 206 bones. If one of those bones is not moving properly, it can affect the function of our body. Each bone in our body has a different purpose. If one of the 360 joints in the human body misaligns or doesn't move correctly, other joints are having to work double duty to not only do their job but also the job of the joint that has misaligned. This is where the doctors at Hybrid Health come into play. When joints are misaligned, a chiropractic physician can use their hands or an instrument to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. Adjustments (or the process of correcting these misalignments) will help free the joints that are moving improperly and allow the muscles to relax.
“Dry Needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Dry needling is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue, and, diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive input, and reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation.”
Kinesio-taping and its application methods have been done for generations, especially in the athlete setting. Whether it is used for support during a pre-workout routine or used post injury to provide stability, taping has many benefits. There are many different brands, the one we primary uses is called RockTape. RockTape provides the same benefit as any other Kinesio tape, however, it provides an added benefit of being preloaded. The preloaded ability allows RockTape to pull skin, fascia, and muscle fibers away from injury so that blood, and lymph can flow more freely allowing inflammation and debris to be removed easier to improve healing time.
Electrical Stimulation or E-Stim is primarily used for pain control but is often used for muscle strengthening during the rehab process. Electrical stimulation uses a very gentle electrical current to stimulate or turn off the nerves in our body depending on the particular application needed for your condition.
Joint Flossing/Compression Banding
"Flossing" sounds like something the dentist asks if you are doing on a daily basis. In our profession, Flossing is a rehab technique using elastic rubber compression bands to compress the tissue temporarily lifting the fascia off the muscles while the joint is taken through various ranges of motion. When the bands are removed, new blood rushes into the joint pushing out inflammation and breaking up scar tissue allowing a greater active and passive range of motion in the joint. This technique is great for pushing out inflammation, increasing range of motion, and helping to "straighten up" scar tissue.
Thermo-Therapy & Ultrasound
What is Thermo-therapy? It is the application of either ice or heat to improve function, flexibility, and post injury rehab. So how do you know which on to use? Ice is normally used with acute injuries which are within a time frame of 24-72 hours post injury. The cold temperature are good at reducing swelling as well as decreasing sensitivity where applied to help reduce pain. Heat is typically used for chronic injuries that are causing symptoms beyond 72 hours post injury. Heat increases metabolism and blood flow to reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility.
AirRelax Compression Boots
Once used exclusively for patients with serious muscular and circulatory disorders, compression sleeves are used by sports teams, universities, physical therapists and professional athletes to improve recovery time and enhance their training. Regular sessions can reduce muscle fatigue, boost your performance, and take you to the next level.
Our team takes your movement patterns very seriously. Our doctors have gone through additional education in the field of athletic injury prevention and rehabilitation. Hybrid Health will use this education to customize a therapeutic exercise program to help strengthen areas of weakness or pain.
Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP®)
The CCSP® certification requires post-graduate education in chiropractic sports medicine or a closely related discipline. Licensed doctors of chiropractic who have a minimum of 100 hours of postgraduate education in the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physicians® program from an accredited chiropractic college and are able to provide official documentation demonstrating such, are eligible to take the CCSP examination
All candidates must have completed a post-graduate level hands-on emergency procedures course and a healthcare-provider level CPR certification course with a hands-on component as part of their program or study or in addition to their program.
Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner (CCEP®)
The Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner (CCEP) Designate course is 105 hours in length. Mechanoreceptors are embedded in the tissues surrounding joints. When these tissues get stretched by a misalignment of the joint, this activates an inhibition or weakening of the adjacent muscle. Discovery of these weak muscles and correction of the misaligned joint to restore normal strength is the specialty of the CCEP doctor. The concept that the neurological system must be in balance with the mechanical control system is the key approach that sets the average chiropractor apart from the exceptional chiropractor in results and stability for the patients. That is why so many team doctors at the collegiate and professional ranks today are CCEP’s.
Activator technique may be for the elderly, children, or anyone here that prefers low force chiropractic adjusting styles. Some people are not comfortable with or are not a good fit for manual adjusting styles so this can easily be substituted. Activator gives a safe and effective adjustment without any of the "popping" noises.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
The DNS system is specifically interested in respiration, core stabilization, joint centration (optimal joint positioning), quality of support and body awareness. This approach provides functional tools to assess and activate the intrinsic spinal stabilizers in order to optimize the movement system for both pre-habilitation and rehabilitation of athletic injuries and performances.
