NeuroAthlete & Chiropractic Clinic
Our approach to health is unique. See how we can help you get back to living
Training is truly the "glue" that can take any of our therapies and make it stick, and is often why so often therapies can fail for many. Our master trainer and team work directly with the nervous system to improve the entire body's performance. This effectively changes the game and makes the therapies we provide in the clinic stick. A combination of neurologically-based training (Zhealth), advanced strength and conditioning, and much more will improve movement, reduce pain, and make the body more and more bulletproof. They also empower the client to continue to make change and progress, allowing them to maintain their results for a lifetime. We are also proud to offer lifestyle and women's health programs besides those for world-class athletes and those in pain.
Biohacking the Brain and Body
We know how to take advantage of nature and technology to get an edge on performance, pain, and recovery like no one else. Sweat-less exercise, infrared light, lymphatic compression, and other tools can improve hormonal function, drastically reduce inflammation, and heal tissues. This means clients experience enhanced recovery, wellness, healing of skin and other tissues, better sleep, and increased overall health. Combine this with expert therapies and training; clients will have never experienced the level of wellness and resilience we can provide them.
Concussion and brain jury from sports or other injuries (car accidents, for example) will change your life and can take months or years. Our expert team aggressively but individually designs plans to address acute and chronic brain injuries and get our clients back to life and play. When other therapies have failed, our approach truly takes advantage of the entire body and cutting-edge research to get the job done. Care extends beyond the clinic as we give clients the tools they need to move beyond flare-ups and help them build the confidence they need to stay well. We have also designed programs to help individuals and teams learn how to drastically reduce their risk of brain injuries, all while improving performance on the field or in life.
You may not think of yourself as an athlete, but you should….
Don't let the name fool you! At NeuroAthlete, everyone is an athlete. Any person who has goals of moving without pain and with strength, coordination, and confidence is one. In fact, the athlete genes are already in your DNA, and you can have better health and optimal performance today, no matter how old or broken you feel.
Movement is the basis of life! Good movement results in good health and excellent performance. Athletes we work with are found on the field, taking care of children, working in offices and various places. Poor movement results in pain, bad biomechanics and movement patterns, increased stress, and reduced performance overall.
Our Approach Centers On 3 Principles
At NeuroAthlete and Chiropractic Clinic, as our name suggests, we use a “neurological lens.” Why? The nervous system is the governing system of the body and “speaks” to that genetic blueprint of health and performance faster than any other system, including the musculoskeletal system. We use a 3-part approach to do what we do for you.
Authoritative Assessment Protocol: We assess our clients in-depth and often; we continually reassess how our procedures affect our clients to quickly dial in on what works. Further, we teach our clients how to assess themselves to know what they are doing is helping right now and into the future.
Empower Clients with a Team: We use a team approach instead of just anyone practitioner simply just treating symptoms. Then, we teach the client drills and exercises that can be used at home to continue and even expedite the improvement process.
Providing Hope: We develop confidence for our clients through results, education, and trust; many of our clients have commented that they were told “this is just the way you are now…” or “this is your new normal…”, meaning they must now live with the pain or dysfunction they currently have; we have found most issues are resolvable given proper training and client compliance; we get results, we teach our clients the “how’s” and “why’s” of their issues, and build a relationship built on shared trust.
So, whether your goal is pain resolution, improved health, performance training, or just better quality of life, results matter! Your results will be poof enough; this is how healthcare should be practiced!
Chiropractic is a fantastic way to directly affect multiple aspects of your body’s performance and health. The use of manual therapy techniques to realign the spine and other joints of the body has been proven to improve neurological function, decrease muscular stress, and a whole host of other healthy processes such as immune system and behavior. Sounds like magic, but it is just making the bodywork better at the most foundational level!
Active Release Techniques (ART)
The Active Release Technique, or ART, is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system. This movement-based massage technique treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Headaches, shoulder pain, sciatica, knee problems, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. However, these conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Hands-on therapy can significantly improve how the body feels and overall health. We like to say we have intelligent hands in our clinic. Our massage therapists have nearly 40 years of experience to help identify biomechanical issues, give you relief, speed your healing, and improve recovery. Discover the effects that an actual master therapist can create – from profound relaxation that heals the mind to increasing athletic performance. Few therapists can give you precisely what you need – ours can.
"I have never met a doctor who invests into my daughter’s well-being like Dr. Higgins does! She is a young athlete who has had both small and bigger injuries. The whole office is always so welcoming to her, makes her feel special, and most importantly, uses several different techniques to heal her injuries, as well as improve her long term success! Dr. Higgins’ knowledge of the body is remarkable, and we are thankful to him and his whole team! Sometimes I wonder if my daughter is making up being in pain so she can go see Dr. Higgins!
