What Are Movement Injuries?
Movement professionals, such as dancers, runners, and those who have integrated movement and exercise activities into their daily lives, such as yoga, can face debilitating injuries despite being in a high state of conditioning.
What Makes Movement Injuries Different?
For highly conditioned professionals, and those committed to fitness, findings may indicate normal ranges of motion and unremarkable orthopedic and neurological findings. Chiropractic provides tools to evaluate disturbances of function, including biomechanical imbalances, that are not addressed in traditional medical and therapy evaluations.

Muscle pain is an outcome of disturbed mechanics. By addressing joint mechanics and the protective mechanisms of the nervous system, chiropractic and traditional Osteopathy treats the cause of movement pain and injuries.
How Does Dr. Strasser Diagnose Movement Injuries?
The first principle of Dr. Strasser’s approach is to view a joint or muscle injury in the context of the whole body. A detailed history and a comprehensive biomechanical and neurological examination, including muscle testing and imaging, if indicated, determines the cause of injury.
How Are Movement Injuries, Such As Running And Yoga Injuries, Treated?
Emphasizing gentle and non-forceful treatment approaches, Portland chiropractor Dr. Arn Strasser draws from a wide range of therapeutic approaches in treating movement disorders, including chiropractic, traditional osteopathic techniques, muscle therapies and therapeutic exercises.
What Causes Movement Injuries?
Causes of movement injuries and pain include: Over-exercise, over- use and wrong exercises; adaptive patterns of the body that have become chronic; spinal, pelvic and joint fixations affecting muscles and joint mechanics; whole body factors including nutritional, emotional and hormonal imbalances, and stress.
