When it comes to minor muscle aches and pains, one Arvada chiropractor seeks to holistically assess the causes of discomfort
Elite Performance Chiropractic opened its doors to the Arvada community in early October. Located in the Core Progression Elite Personal Training Center, Elite Performance is a small, practice specializing in healing musculoskeletal aches and pains and enhancing sports performance techniques.
For Elite Performance owner Ryan Diana, helping people on a personal level is a natural part of his practice.
“My goal is to know everyone in the community,” Diana said, “I want to help people with injuries, prevent more injuries and keep people active.”
At Elite Performance, Diana structures each treatment around the Selective Functional Movement Assessment, which analyzes the body to find the cause of pain and help treat pain long-term. With this strategy, Diana uses chiropractic adjustments, the Active Release Technique and a Fibroblaster as tools to break up scar tissue and treat muscle pulls and strains.
Along with these tools and techniques, Diana, as the only chiropractor, said he uses an experience-oriented approach to his practice to better treat his patients.
“I like the old-school doctor-patient method, it’s the best way to work with people,” Diana said. “I treat everybody the way or with the best method they need to be treated.”
Part of a trio of businesses in the Core Progression Center, Diana works alongside a gym and a massage therapist to provide a one-stop-shop area of services. In this setting, patients are able to receive treatment for a number of conditions while being able to work out or have a massage.
“A lot of the trainers work with people who have problems with certain movements and will refer them to me, and I’m able to get them back out there,” Diana said.
New to Arvada, Diana hopes to continue his business by ensuring a good relationship with each of his patients and treating patients with the care that best suits the patient.
“In the future, I hope to be doing the same thing I’m doing now, with no staff; just good relationships with patients.”
