Dr Weston and Ryan will be helping them, teaching some dynamic dryland exercises to the youth swimmers to prevent injuries while practicing.
Dr. Weston Gustafson, D.C, will be working with athletes through Myofascial Therapy. This form of soft tissue muscle therapy benefits athletes through optimizing muscle recovery and athletic performance. This technique is also used to treat sports injuries, muscular imbalances, faulty movement patterns, and pelvic misalignment. Myofascial Therapy consists of muscle stretching under soft-pressure to re-establish optimal muscle length and function. Athletes will remain fully clothed during the Myofascial Therapy treatment.
Ryan Kerner, Exercise Specialist, will be working with athletes on Dynamic Exercise. Dynamic Exercise is an excellent form of movement that prepares the body to withstand the muscular demands of sports and activity, including swimming. This form of exercise consists of total body movements that work to strengthen and stabilize the muscles at their optimal and active ranges of motion. Athletes will only need a pair of sneakers to safely perform these movements.
Whether you’re young or old, competing or doing sport for recreation, we’d be glad to help you with the same type of exercises, specific to your sport, to help you improve and reduce injury!

Last month Dr Gentile had a patient come in for laser treatments as he was gearing up for a big boxing match. Brad has been a boxer for several years and naturally that can wear on the body.
