ATHLETE BRIDGE PROGRAM
Our passion for high performers, the people who want to train to be their best, drove us to create this program and ARC. Our current healthcare system falls short when it comes to taking care of active individuals. Many times individuals are released from rehab programs too soon and a lot of current healthcare plans limit rehabilitation care. This often leaves people to complete their rehabilitation on their own and returning to their sports and activities ill prepared and not fully recovered.
Our Bridge Program provides a comprehensive movement and performance assessment. A professionally supervised sport and activity-specific strength training program is designed to return our athletes back to their sports safely, stronger, and with proper movement
OVERHEAD ATHLETE ARM CARE PROGRAM
Just like the Big Leagues! The Arm Care Program at the ARC is modeled after current programs used by the pros. Our goal to help overhead throwers get through the demanding rigors of a season of fastballs and sliders healthy and stronger. Each thrower is evaluated by a physical therapist to determine any movement and strength deficits. Each player in our program has access to ARC and all of its recovery services. We provide recovery modalities including dry needling, laser therapy, soft tissue work, cardio and arm strengthening exercises.

CLASS IV LASER
Laser therapy, a non-invasive technique approved by the FDA, helps reduce pain and inflammation. Used with or instead of pharmaceutical drugs, it may be an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot
penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Our therapists use contact or non-contact hand pieces, depending on your condition. The contact hand piece allows our therapist to physically manipulate, or laser-massage, tissue so
light can penetrate deeper. Most people generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Let us customize a treatment plan to help you recover.
Dry Needling involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the area of the body that triggers pain. Nothing is injected into the body and the needle is so think most people don’t feel it penetrate the skin. Some feel various degrees of discomfort once it has advanced into the muscle. Healthy muscles have little to no trigger pain points and low discomfort. Sensitive, sore or shortened muscles have more active trigger points so dry needling therapy may feel like a muscle cramp.
Most people see positive results within 2 to 4 sessions, depending on the cause a duration of the symptoms and overall health. An effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, pain and injury prevention, dry needling is unequaled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction with very few side effects.
Cupping, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice, involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This practice dates back over 2,000 years but has received recent attention in the media due to its use by world-class athletes for injury relief.
Cupping effectively suctions the skin and helps increase blood flow and promotes healing. Medical studies indicate that cupping could be an effective short term treatment chronic neck pain low-back pain.
Considered safe for healthy people, cupping can cause bruising, soreness and some discomfort. People with underlying health conditions should not use cupping.
INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION (IASTM)
IASTM enables therapists to treat soft tissue dysfunction. An evolution of the traditional Chinese medicine GuaSha, IASTM uses ergonomically designed instruments to detect and treat facial restrictions, encourage rapid
localization and effectively treat soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation or degeneration.
