At Santa Cruz CORE our services complement each other. Personal training and nutrition counseling, for example, go hand-in-hand when it comes to weight-loss. Corrective exercise, massage therapy, and acupuncture together can achieve greater results for treating pain.
Thanks to our wide range of services, a client can combine many of our treatment modalities to better suit their needs. Combination of services allows for a holistic approach to wellbeing and our whole team is here to help.
Pain is a common symptom that can reflect a range of dysfunctions. It is therefore effective to treat pain with a variety of techniques as opposed to just one. Back pain, for example, can be a sign of weak core muscles, an injury, bad posture, inflammation, stress, and repetitive work.
In this instance, massage will help relax the muscles, improve circulation, and spread the swelling. Osteopathic and chiropractic treatments can help pinpoint and correct structural dysfunctions to improve the healing process and prevent further injury. Corrective and guided exercise will help strengthen weak muscles contributing to pain. Acupuncture will help calm nerves, stimulate the proper flow of qi, and treat for pain.
Success in weight loss is more likely when supported by a team. Positive reinforcement, the track of progress, realistic goal setting, and healthy approaches are a few of the many perks of working with a team.
Personal training allows for one-on-one fitness development, and semi-private training better suits those who like a social setting. Our trainers will take into account a person’s physical limitations, lifestyle, fitness goals, and overall wellness when creating a fitness plan. Our Nutritionists and Dietitians have great knowledge on the role of diet on health and can tailor a plan that best suits individual needs. The Integrative and Functional Nutrition model, for example, takes genetic predispositions, sleep patterns, stress levels, and environment into account.
Recovering from Muscle Injury
Musculoskeletal injuries can be hard to treat. Physical demands from sports, work, and daily life can interfere with the healing and predispose an individual to further injury. This is why Santa Cruz CORE takes a combined approach to treat musculoskeletal injuries- from mild to severe.
At times, treating an injury can be as simple as bettering posture and strengthening muscles. But these injuries can quickly escalate to more severe if left untreated and if detrimental movement patterns are continued. When an injury is severe enough, like in ligament tears or laxity, cutting-edge approaches like prolotherapy may be recruited. From mild to wild, Santa Cruz CORE is well-equipped to treat and help an individual recover from musculoskeletal injuries.
