Recover Faster, Train Harder… A New Perspective on Recovery

Offering a new perspective on recovery, the RECOVERY Doc team utilizes cutting-edge healing technology, customized treatment programs and a state-of-the-art monitoring service to help athletes recover quicker and stronger, enabling them to perform at their optimum level.

Getting athletes to function at their optimum level is what it’s all about.

Recovery is just as important as training, yet it seems not many athletes’ trainers or coaches really focus on the aspects of recovery. Our areas of interest are all about RECOVERY to boost your athletic performance. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or you’re simply in between training, let the team at RECOVERY Doc help you boost your performance.



Musculoskeletal Diagnostic Ultrasound

MSK Ultrasound Machine

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK Ultrasound) is a dynamic, non-invasive exam that allows high resolution, real-time evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders. It is an excellent complement to MRI and a reliable modality for diagnosing musculoskeletal disorders related to traumatic injury, degeneration and for patients who can’t undergo MRI.

Non-invasive and dynamic imaging is beneficial when range of motion is lost due to acute or chronic injury to major tendons, as well as in pain management and urgent care. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a unique modality which will enhance patient care.

Diagnostic Ultrasound Capabilities

  • Shoulder examination: evaluation of shoulder pain or dysfunction
  • Elbow examination: soft tissue injury, tendon pathology (including tendinopathy, enthesopathy and tears), ligament pathology, arthritis, loose bodies, soft tissue masses, nerve entrapment, effusion and bone injury.
  • Wrist and hand examination: soft tissue injury, tendon pathology (tendinopathy, tenosynovitis and tears), arthritis, soft tissue masses or swelling (including ganglion cysts), nerve entrapment, effusion, foreign bodies and bone injuries.
  • Hip examination: soft tissue injury, tendon pathology, arthritis, soft tissue masses or swelling, nerve entrapment, effusion and bone injury
  • Knee examination: soft tissue injury, tendon and collateral ligament pathology, arthritis, soft tissue masses or swelling, loose intra-articular bodies, effusion and bone injury
  • Ankle and foot examination: soft tissue, tendon and ligament injury, arthritis, soft tissue masses or swelling, intra-articular loose bodies, effusion, bone injury, Morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis, stress fracture and foreign bodies
  • Peripheral nerve examination: compression neuropathies, neuritis, nerve masses, nerve trauma and nerve subluxation



Class III & IV Laser Therapy

Cold Laser

FDA approved Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy or Phototherapy, has been widely used by health care professionals for over thirty-five years. In addition, this therapy has been the subject of numerous studies with over 3,500 scientific papers published worldwide.

Cold Laser Therapy is treatment that produces a beam of light in which high energies can be concentrated to a specific area. This laser light has unique physical properties, which no other ordinary light has. The unique properties of coherence and monochromaticity are the key to why laser light is so effective compared to other kinds of light in pain reduction and healing.

How it Works

Cold Laser Therapy can strengthen and heal damaged cells. Using photochemical processes, laser light inserts bio-photons into damaged cells. The cells begin to produce energy (ATP), which improves their function, assists their division, strengthens the body’s immune system, and causes the secretion of various hormones. The tissues are healed, and pain disappears. If damaged cells have died, the bio-photons help the division of neighboring cells, generating new tissues, and thus bring about healing.

Benefits of Laser Therapy

  • Promotes healing in many conditions by penetrating the skin, increasing the ATP and activating enzymes in targeted cells.
  • Activates a growth factor response within the cells and tissues as a result of increased ATP and protein synthesis.
  • Improves cell proliferation.
  • Provides pain relief as a result of increased endorphin release.
  • Strengthens the immune system response via increasing levels of lymphocyte activity.

Graston Technique

Graston Technique

Graston Technique® is an interdisciplinary treatment used by nearly 5000 clinicians—including athletic trainers, chiropractors, hand therapists, occupational and physical therapists. This technique is utilized at some 550 outpatient facilities and industrial on-sites, by more than 90 professional and amateur sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at 21 respected colleges and universities.

The Graston Technique utilizes six stainless steel instruments to assist in therapy. The curvilinear edge of the patented instruments combines with their concave/convex shape to mold the instruments to various contours of the body. This design allows for ease of treatment, minimal stress to the clinician’s hand, and maximum tissue penetration.

These instruments, much like a tuning fork, resonate in the clinician’s hands allowing them to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress, deeper restrictions can be accessed and treated. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, these instruments significantly increase what the human hands can feel.

Graston Technique

How it Works

  • Separates and breaks down collagen cross-links, and splays and stretches connective tissue and muscle fibers.
  • Increases skin temperature while facilitating reflex changes in the chronic muscle holding pattern.
  • Alters spinal reflux activity (facilitated segment).
  • Increases the rate and amount of blood flow to and from the area.
  • Increases cellular activity in the region, including fibroblasts and mast cells.
  • Increases histamine response secondary to mast cell activity.

The Graston Technique instruments, while enhancing the clinician’s ability to detect fascial adhesions and restrictions, have been clinically proven to achieve quicker and better outcomes in treating both acute and chronic conditions, including:

  • Cervical (Neck) Sprain/Strain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Scar Tissue
  • Shin Splints
  • Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Lumbar (Low Back) Sprain/Strain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)
  • Patellofemoral (Knee) Disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Trigger Finger
  • Hip Disorders
  • Ankle Sprain



What is Kinesio® Tape?

Kinesio Tape

Kinesio Tape® offers patients a more gentle approach to rehabilitation than that provided by conventional athletic tape. After unprecedented publicity and positive feedback from the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, athletes and medical practitioners around the world are calling Kinesio Tape a valuable rehabilitative and enhancement tool.

Kinesio Tape is a Latex free, non-medicated, thin, porous cotton fabric with a medical grade acrylic adhesive. The tape is comprised of elastic qualities which are designed for a 30-40% longitudinal only stretch when applied. Our bodies were designed to move and the Kinesio Taping Technique promotes movement and motion. With Kinesio Tape, we are not only limited to supporting and stabilizing musculature, but allowed to provide rehabilitation while encouraging movement!

How it Works

Kinesio Tape

The technique relies heavily on insertions and origins of muscles. The built-in stretch of the tape can help stabilize injured muscles, support fatigued, weakened and/or strained muscles, and can also help facilitate a stretch for those muscles in spasm.

In addition to muscle support, Kinesio Tape can lift the skin to increase the space between the skin and muscle. This reduced localized pressure in the affected area helps promote circulation, lymphatic drainage, and lessen the irritation on the subcutaneous neural pain receptors. As an end result, the Kinesio Taping Technique reduces pain and inflammation.

Kinesio Tape

Since the introduction of Kinesio Tape in the United States, medical practitioners such as PTs, ATCs, OTs, DCs, MTs and MDs have recognized and embraced this effective, safe and best of all, easy-to-use modality. The method and tape allow the individual to receive the therapeutic benefits 24 hours a day with both comfort and ease because it can be worn for several days per application. Currently, Kinesio Tape is being used in hospitals, clinics, high schools, colleges, professional sports teams, and even at the Olympic level!
