Bridgeman Health Solutions
Welcome! Bridgeman Health Solutions offers a drugless and nonsurgical approach to treating sports injuries that gets results quickly by first identifying what the problem is and then making the appropriate corrections.
With over fifteen years of ART soft tissue training, sports chiropractic techniques, and certification in Chiropractic Extremity Adjusting (CCEP), Dr. Bridgeman has developed a unique nonsurgical approach to treating athletic injuries that will help diagnose and correct the problem and get you back into the game as quickly as possible. The key to the success of the treatment is by correctly evaluating the patient to determine what is “actually” going on with the patient.
When Dr. Bridgeman evaluates an athlete he looks at three main components: the joints, the muscles, and the nervous system. When these systems are out of sync the body will have muscle spasms, restricted range of motion, weakness, and a high likelihood of injury.
Three Components to Treatment
1. THE JOINT
The joints are designed for movement. The doctor will evaluate the joints to determine if they are moving properly. When injured, the joint can become hypomobile (not moving properly) or hypermobile (moving too much).
1. If it is hypomobile the doctor will mobilize or adjust the joint to restore movement.
2. If it is hypermobile then the doctor will instruct the athlete on how to stabilize the joint.
2. MUSCLE/SOFT TISSUE INJURY
When soft tissue injury occurs scar tissue will develop and lead to pain, altered movements, and tendonitis. Dr. Bridgeman has the ability to effectively isolate specific structures and treat them utilizing a hands-on approach that “breaks” up the scar tissue adhesions allowing for better circulation, increased range of motion, and decreased pain.
3. NERVOUS SYSTEM
The nervous system is the most often overlooked component of athletic injury. The brain needs to communicate with your body and when blockages of nerves occur at the spine or extremity joints it can lead to weakness, pain, and altered function. Dr. Bridgeman utilizes a pain-free adjusting instrument to assist in “stimulating” the nervous system to make the correction.
