Using the principles of Biomechanics, Dr. Cole looks for structural and functional abnormalities that can lead to injury. He focuses on correcting improper alignment, and utilizes corrective exercises, cross-training, proper conditioning, warm-up and cool-down practices, hydration and nutrition to prevent injury.
Through the use of integrated training and conditioning methods (such as agility, core, flexibility, balance, speed and resistance training), Dr. Cole can help you reach peak performance while reducing your risk of injury. Whether you work behind a desk full-time or are a professional athlete, Dr. Cole can help you achieve your goals.
Dr. Cole has received physical therapy training and is well-versed in the rehabilitation of many different conditions. He is a strong believer in the use of rehabilitation during his chiropractic treatments as he believes that if you do not address the issue from all relevant points, it is difficult to truly heal.
When your joints get out of place or tissues are injured, it creates a weakness in your system. Dr. Cole identifies areas of weakness by looking for flexibility, range of motion deficits and muscular weakness to fix your current injury and prevent future issues.
The bones, joints, muscles, nerves, fascia and ligaments all need to be in their proper place for you to function at your best, so Dr. Cole strives to use his treatments as a correction rather than a band-aid. Believing that patients get better faster with a multidisciplinary approach, Dr. Cole stays involved with various professionals to make sure his patients get the best care available.
