Sports Injuries


At Siegenthaler Center we have a success rate right around 90% for the treatment of soft-tissue and musculoskeletal injuries. We can typically reduce time off from activity or training by around 50%, versus traditional conservative treatments for soft tissue injuries.

We have achieved this high level of success because of our unique combination of diagnostic techniques and integrated treatments approach.

We are very specific about what we treat, and matching the proper technique to the injury. We refer problems that do not fall into the category of musculoskeletal conditions to other specialists.

Our typical patient has seen several practitioners before entering our office. They have usually been evaluated by their family physician, possibly an orthopedist or neurologist, and had minimal success with physical therapy. We are able to get results where traditional treatments fail due to our unique understanding of soft tissue injuries, and advanced treatment options. We can most likely help you if you have an injury that falls into the musculoskeletal category. Some common conditions that we treat are located under the Injuries drop down menu.

If your condition falls within our scope of practice as a musculoskeletal condition, we will recommend an appropriate treatment regimen which has a proven track record for treating your condition. In terms of the type of treatments, we may recommend a combination of one or more of the following treatment modalities:

  • Active Release Techniques
  • Graston Technique
  • Chiropractic Manipulation
  • Exercises
  • Dietary recommendations

The length and number of treatments vary from individual to individual, and from condition to condition. However, we will clearly define the expected number of treatments, and the expected length of time. We expect to see measurable results within a short period of time. We have a high success rate for most soft tissue conditions, and are generally able to provide real changes in a brief time-period. This allows our patients to resume their chosen activities and restore their quality of life.

We look forward to serving your health needs.
