San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
National Men’s Health Month is dedicated to bringing awareness to preventable health problems and encouraging men to seek medical advice for injury and disease prevention. Chiropractic care places a great emphasis on preventative treatment for pain and injuries. As a chiropractor, Dr. Adam Jacobs of SF Custom Chiropractic focuses on finding patient’s underlying symptoms and addressing preventative measures to avoid future injuries.
A visit to SF Custom Chiropractic can help restore proper spinal alignment with a series of spinal adjustments, Active Release Technique, deep tissue massage and other modalities such as laser therapy, Technica Gavilan, and custom orthotics. Doctors trained in sports chiropractic have specific training in treating injuries from sports and athletics to help improve performance and prevent injury. Chiropractic plays an important role in speeding up recovery from injury, enhancing performance and helping prevent future problems. Sports chiropractors, such as Dr. Adam Jacobs ensure that athletes return to peak performance by restoring injured areas back to normal motion, position and function. Athletes in sports such as baseball, football, soccer, basketball, running, tennis, dance and skiing have found that chiropractors are able to give them an edge in their competitions.
Dr. Adam Jacobs—a former college athlete and now a weekend warrior—understands what it is like to have sports injuries and uses multiple modalities to help patients recover from and prevent injuries. He uses a combination of chiropractic spinal and extremity adjustments, Active Release Technique, laser therapy, and custom orthotics to ensure the problem is treated from many different angles.
For sports injury prevention, Active Release Technique is used to restore injured muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and soft tissues. Active Release Technique uses targeted muscle movements to reduce excessive muscle tension, increase flexibility and smooth adhesions. Dr. Adam Jacobs is one of an elite few San Francisco chiropractors who is certified in full body Active Release Technique, which has proven very successful for many professional athletes.
During the month of June, SF Custom Chiropractic will be celebrating Men’s Health Month by offering a free sports injury consultation to new patients, men and women alike.
