Are you getting tired of putting up with a tired, stiff, achy neck?  Has it become sufficiently clear that popping Advil/Tylenol, taking your friend’s pain pills, or applying that muscle rub you saw on a TV commercial is not making you better?  Are you simply reluctant to consult a health care provider because of fears of being stuck with a medical bill that your insurance won’t cover?

Dr. Douglas Cancel and Performance Sport-Care may have your answer. Dr. Cancel is an expert in the use of ‘Manual Therapy,’ a system of relaxing chronically tight muscles in order to improve spinal alignment and achieve optimum spinal joint mobility.  In otherwise healthy individuals, treatment of the neck through a unique systematic, slow, steady mobilization of the muscles can cause them to relax and lengthen. As this occurs the spinal joints are naturally mobilized and realigned without the “cracking” or “popping” sound commonly associated with high velocity-low amplitude Chiropractic adjustments. When this is accomplished, usually for a maximum of six treatment sessions, pain relief and improved range of motion is commonly achieved.

You can learn about the effectiveness of Manual Therapy and a see a comparative cost analysis in this link:  Web MD reviews manual therapy. 

And when you are feeling better, if you desire, we can train you to stay better and be stronger, by teaching you a custom rehabilitative exercise program using the same commercial exercise equipment that you can find at your neighborhood gym or athletic club. We can also teach you how to improve your posture and provide guidance as to the best foods to eat for optimum recovery and improved fitness.

If you are willing to risk $110 for an initial consultation, Dr. Cancel will take the time necessary to listen to you, ask you questions about all aspects of your problem, review any previous records or imaging studies (x-ray, MRI, CT) you may have, carefully examine you, explain his diagnosis of your problem, answer all of your questions, and advise you if he has a reasonable chance to help you feel better. We do not accept patients for treatment without a reasonable expectation of results.

At Performance Sport-Care our goal is a simple one: to help you feel better as soon as possible.
