For the past decade, Dr. Brown has been a team doctor for the Tracy High School football team. On the sidelines at every game, Dr. Brown helps athletes before games in the training room and during games; constantly evaluating players’ conditions. He demonstrates proper stretching techniques and special exercises for players overcoming injuries to particular parts of their bodies. Many athletes have found increased stability and function from Dr. Brown’s guidance and care.
Similarly, Dr. Schack is a coach and trainer for the local competition cheer team, Athletic Perfection. In addition to her responsibilities as a coach, she helps teammates with preventive and recovery care for an array of common injuries pertaining to the ankle, calf, shoulders, and knees. Athletes from local high schools who are recovering from surgeries trust Dr. Schack for rehabilitative therapy.
In certain situations, Dr. Schack, who is a certified Kineso Tape Practitioner, will apply Kineso tape to help players overcome soreness and limited mobility. Kinesthetic taping helps athletes perform at their best when they’re dealing with pain from sprains, strains, contusions, and general achiness. Kinesio tape stretches to move with your body naturally while also reducing healing time and increasing blood flow to the affected area.
We work with several local orthopedic surgeons; referring patients to them and vice versa to provide optimal care for patients before and after surgery or other procedures.
Sports injuries we commonly help athletes recover from include:
Shoulder Injuries: Labrums, Rotator Cuffs
Quad & Hamstring Strains
Ankle Sprains (high & low)
Muscles are covered by soft tissue called fascia. Sometimes inflammation and discomfort can occur when this tissue is irritated by overused muscles. In this case, we recommend myofascial release; our doctors will apply gentle pressure to areas where the muscle and fascia are causing soreness.
Local high school sports participation physicals are available in our office.
