How many of you have patients in your office who are athletic and say they are competing better than they did before they started receiving chiropractic care? These subjective patient testimonials/anecdotal reports abound…”I don’t get injured or sick as often, I am more flexible, I have better range of motion, I can see the ball better, my hand-eye coordination has improved” are comments that we have all probably heard one time or another.
Most athletes have come to recognize Chiropractic Care as an excellent injury prevention and treatment option. As well, they come to realize that chiropractic provides many additional benefits that can boost performance naturally and can make a difference in their results. This is what Chiropractors do Best!!!! We provide this type of “wellness care” to our patients to help them maximize their potential from beginning to end of each event!
Dr Nicolle will help the athlete to determine the point of fatigue, any limitations the athlete experiences and points of weakness due to improper technique or lack of preparation.
A tool that she will use is Rock Tape Kinesiotape technology. As a RockDoc, Dr Nicolle utilizes this technique and product for four reasons:
Rocktape was created for “in the heat” of the competition. Regular medical tape and kinesiotape fails under race conditions and does not meet the athletes standards. The Rock Tape may cost more however the proof is in the results. When it is all on the line, you want to know that you are supported by the best in the business. Rocktape is designed with 180% elasticity enabling the athlete fuller and increased range of motion.
The competitors only offer 130-150% stretch and can be limiting to the athletes performance. The effects are like night and day! Athletes do not want to feel “bound” when competiting!
Rocktape offers superior snap back which is the ability of the tape to stretch without too much resistance, yet provide assistance to muscles when they return to neutral. The engineering of Rocktape enables the right stretch and recovery dynamics and the proper moisture defense provided by the use of a special nylon called 6/12.
Rocktape does not compromise on your performance and neither does Dr Nicolle!!!
One size DOES NOT fit all! Pre cut tape does not work for everyone, shape, size or height. There is a huge difference between a 55kg ballet dancer and a 7ft tall rugby player. They may have the same identical attitude and spirit however very specific needs based on stature and sport. Dr Nicolle thinks it is her job to fit you in size and spirit rather than the other way.
