Revitalizing Sports Chiropractic at Atomic Pilates & Chiropractic

Optimize performance with our specialized sports chiropractic care.


Movement is vital to a balanced and well-executed lifestyle, and while physical activities contribute to your strength and overall health, they can also create imbalances within the body. 

Those who are more physically active than the average person are at heightened risk of injuries, soreness, imbalances, and dysfunctions, all of which lead to limitations. Whether you play on a team or want to conquer a better solo achievement, limitations aren’t an option. 

Whenever you add unnatural or unrealistic pressures to targeted muscles and joints, it’s essential to take action to ensure the body can support you. This is true for daily activities and more rigorous activities, such as sports, athletics, and workouts. 

Sports Chiropractic at Atomic is a unique blend of healing and performance enhancement. Our specialist understands the specific needs of athletes, weekend warriors, and those running the race of life. 

Dr. Ryan utilizes gentle, effective techniques to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and optimize spinal health. If your body is working in overdrive to meet your physical goals, let’s connect. We can help you get there faster and safer.

People & Athletes We Love to Work With

No matter what sport you play, exercise you do, or physical activities you’re involved in, talent is key to your success. Since your body relies on you to thrive, proactive care is essential to performance and staying pain and injury-free. 

No one understands the frustration of injury like an athlete preparing for an event. Hard work and sacrifice are instrumental to proper preparation, so it can be incredibly stressful and disappointing when those don't pay off.

Reasons to Work with a Sports Chiropractor for Injury & Performance

With constant and repetitive pressure placed on the physically active body, the body is at risk. Chiropractic care can help alleviate that risk by ensuring the spine and musculoskeletal system fully support you and quickly remedying them when they're not.

When injured, we’ll find the cause of any symptoms you have so we can develop the best and most efficient healing strategy. Don’t let discomfort become a bigger problem. When the body is compromised, even if it’s minor, compensation is occurring, and that can create more dysfunction and worsening pain.

You don’t want to miss out on training or events; you put in the time, you have the dedication, your mind is prepared to get you there, so give your body what it needs to carry it home.  

Common sports injuries we successfully treat include:


Don’t miss out on training or participation; safe, natural, noninvasive chiropractic care is here to prove that you have the control.

Some of the sports chiropractic services used by Dr. Ryan include:

Chiropractic Adjustments & Spinal Manipulations

A targeted, low-amplitude, high-velocity manual thrust is applied to a restricted joint or vertebrae. Often, this service immediately restores range of motion and comfort. 

Graston Technique

This therapy utilizes specially designed stainless steel tools to manipulate the skin over affected soft tissues, quickly minimizing restrictions and breaking down adhesions.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive procedure that uses focused light to trigger cellular healing. It encourages circulation, removes inflammation and muscle tension, and promotes a quick healing response.

Kinesio Taping

Applying Kinesio tape over the skin of injured areas will allow for supported movement but still give the soft tissues time to relax and heal, quickly reducing pain and inflammation and restoring mobility. 

Myofascial Release 

Using gentle, consistent manual pressure, we focus on releasing tension in the connective tissues that support the muscles (the fascial tissues). 

Muscle Activation Techniques

Muscle activation is a system designed to improve muscle efficiency and contracting ability. It addresses imbalances and limitations that cause pain, reduce mobility, and create challenges while performing daily activities or exercise.

First, we identify weakness and tightness in the muscles; then, we apply targeted pressure to restore proper function. With this, the muscles will work efficiently and you’ll achieve better range of motion and joint stability that support overall improved physical performance. 

Muscle activation helps athletes looking to prevent injuries and optimize performance, as well as anyone experiencing movement limitations and pain.

Fascial Distortion Model 

Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is a hands-on treatment approach for musculoskeletal conditions that focuses on the fascia, the body's connective tissue. FDM proposes that pain and dysfunction arise from distortions in the fascia. These distortions can be caused by various factors like injuries, repetitive stress, or even surgeries.

FDM treatments involve manual therapy techniques that address specific fascial distortions. These techniques aim to release the distorted fascia and restore proper function.

FDM is effective for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, and joint pain, and the method has been successfully used to treat several common sports-related injuries and chronic pain. 

Sports Rehabilitation

Athletes of all levels and abilities rely on sports rehab to promote fast and safe recovery after events and while in training. Sports rehabilitation is a form of preventative care that can increase performance, endurance, and comfort.

Using an array of rehabilitative therapies, we can maximize the healing process and get you highly functioning so you can return to your athletic routine responsibly.
