Recovery Techniques

Laying the Foundation for Total Health

At Steel City Spine and Sports we approach care in a very personalized and specific way.  Whether you are looking for injury treatment or training recovery a detailed history will be taken.  At this point Dr. DiSanti will have a conversation with you that directly address your personal goals.  This will determine the intensity and frequency of treatment that will be suggested in your treatment plan.  You will never be pressured into signing up for a plan or into receiving unnecessary treatment.  We pride ourselves on getting people back to work/sport/activity as fast as possible.  

Phase 1: Acute Care

If you are in pain when you come into our office the first goal is to decrease your discomfort and identify the root cause of your pain.  Depending on the severity of your pain, this is the point you would traditionally be given a directive from the doctor to rest, ice, compress, and elevate the area if possible.  Due to research we know that there is elements of this protocol that should be utilized but on its own it is not the best approach to decrease recovery time.   Our goal is to progress you out of the acute care stage of treatment and into active as soon as possible.     

Phase 2: Active/Corrective Care

During the corrective care phase you will start off with treatment’s that could include- DNS, Graston, ART, Normatec, McKenzie and Hyperice.  This corrective care is targeted at addressing any movement deficiencies or muscle imbalances.  This is achieved through active patient care.  We do not believe in passive care unless pain levels dictate analgesic care.  When you have achieved the proper range of motion, balance, agility, coordination, and stability you will be ready to progress into the next phase of care.

Phase 3: Sport/Goal Specific Training combined with RECOVERY

Once you are out of pain and functionally moving properly, you will be referred to Athletic Architect where, Dan Riser will put you through a very complete and specific movement screening process.  Dan will then talk to Dr. DiSanti and you will be given a blueprint for how you can take your ability to the next level.  This training will inevitably leave your muscles fatigued and soreness will set in.  Lactic acid is a byproduct of your muscles burning energy and we offer Normatic compression therapy, that can be used in our Recovery Room.  The Recovery Room is a private room where you can use the Normatice compression machine while watching television or surfing the internet.  There is an array of other products that are also offered in our Recovery Room. 

What to Expect As A New Patient

Welcome to Steel City Spine and Sports, where we offer you professional care that will help you achieve your goals.  Those goals could range from decreasing back pain following manual labor to decreasing elbow pain after playing golf.  Whatever the cause of your musculoskeletal pain we can either take care of you in our facility or refer you to the proper medical professional.

Our definition of sport is any endeavor that you strive to improve in.  It is not specific to your traditional sports.  We welcome anyone who is willing to set goals and do their best to not just work toward those goals but strive to achieve them.  If that sounds like you, we look forward to not just meeting you but helping you reach those goals.  If you aren’t a traditional athlete don’t feel intimidated.  We welcome all patients looking to utilize chiropractic care and goals to maximize their activities of daily living.

We are NOT an office that promotes unnecessary treatments when they are not called for.  You will never feel pressured to buy something or purchase a package at Steel City Spine and Sport.  Our care is dictated by objective measures and research that is integrated into a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals, functional capabilities, and level of commitment.
