Physical and Sports Therapy
Our professional physical therapists are the experts in examining and treating musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders and injuries. And at Sport + Spine, it’s more than treating the symptoms. Our therapists get to the root of the problem and treat the cause, plus prevent future injuries. You’re up and running and better than ever.
Back and Neck Pain
Our therapists specialize in treating both acute and chronic back and neck pain. Early physical therapy intervention is the key to a fast, successful recovery, and we’re on your team throughout the process.
Sport + Spine’s expert therapists use manual skills to assist in the healing process. We do this along with therapeutic exercises and education, so you’re on track for proper long-term healing.
Active Release Therapy (ART)
Active Release Therapy (ART) aids a physical therapist in diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue injuries, particularly ones that result from repetitive strains, adhesions and joint dysfunction. As a treatment for overused muscles, Sport + Spine professionals use ART treatment to relieve muscle tension, numbness, weakness and pain.
Experience this innovative approach to help release muscle tissues. Dry needling doesn’t just treat the symptoms — instead, it addresses the cause of pain. As the first physical therapy facility to bring this to Kansas City, Sport + Spine physical therapists insert thin needles into trigger points, relieving tension and restoring function.
An expert functional evaluation is an important part of both injury recovery and prevention. A Sport + Spine movement specialist conducts your thorough movement analysis specific to your activity or sport, evaluating musculoskeletal and biomechanical function. We’ll suggest treatments, building your game plan to get back in action.
Performance Plus sessions are perfect for post-physical therapy clients who want to maintain strength, and those who want the advantage of custom-designed personal workouts. Maximize your routine through personalized plans and access to Sport + Spine facilities and equipment.
Our anti-gravity treadmill reduces the impact on the body, so users can heal more quickly, with less pain and get back in the game faster than ever. On the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, developed by NASA engineers, up to 80% of a person’s body weight can be removed, creating an experience that puts less pressure and pounding on muscles and joints. A transformational choice for recovery from injury or surgery, patients can start partial weight-bearing exercises earlier than ever. For those who are overweight, the treadmill offers an immediate experience of what it might feel like to weigh less, and allows for exercise with less joint impact and stress.
Personal Plus Training
One-on-one training helps the athlete in everyone correct weaknesses and improve strength. With a focus on injury prevention, our therapists take a performance-based approach to your personal athletic goals.
Muscle-specific massage targets areas of injury or fatigue, promoting muscle recovery and injury prevention. Sport + Spine massage therapists combine rehabilitation and relaxation for a unique approach. An important part of muscle recovery, massage supports wellness and restoration.
AromaTouch is a clinical application of the use of doTERRA essential oils to help bring homeostasis to the body. Your Sport + Spine massage or physical therapist incorporates specific massage techniques for whole body wellness. Often paired with a massage, benefits include stress relief, decreasing inflammation, supporting the immune system and holistic balance.
The Kinesio Taping Method facilitates the body’s natural healing process as it supports and stabilizes muscles and joints — without restricting the body’s range of motion. Kinesio Taping re-educates the neuromuscular system and is used to treat many orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Patients experience reduced pain, optimized performance and improved circulation. Injuries are prevented as the body heals.
