What are the sports medicine treatments?

Greenwich Wellness provides many innovative treatments for sports medicine. These include:

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is one of the key treatments for sports injury prevention. Restoring your body’s spine and joint alignment reduces stress and friction on your joints. In addition, proper alignment helps balance your body, improving joint function.

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization

Overuse injuries from repetitive movements — muscle sprains, tendonitis, tennis elbow — are common in athletes. Dr. Massoud performs instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization therapy to undo the scar tissue that develops from these types of injuries. 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture reduces pain and inflammation and restores the energy flow to your muscles to support recovery following an intense workout or sporting event.

Nutrition therapy

Dr. Massoud has advanced training in nutrition therapy. He provides nutritional plans that include specific whole food nutrients from Standard Process® and MediHerb® herbal supplements, which can enhance your body’s oxidative and glycolytic pathways.

These nutrition plans improve your body’s ability to get rid of toxins and ensure your muscles get the nutrients they need to recover and grow.

Laser therapy

Greenwich Wellness uses Erchonia® laser therapy to ease muscle pain. Dr. Massoud places the low-level laser tool on the area of the body where you have pain. The focused laser energy targets the damaged cells, reducing pain and inflammation and enhancing tissue regeneration.
