Our Methodology

We start with an initial evaluation, which includes a functional movement screening with additional sports specific biomechanical tests to address structural alignment, deficits in range of motion, muscle strength and flexibility, and proper form.

We combine chiropractic care, massage therapy and corrective exercise to speed up improvement and prevent future reoccurrence of injury. These methods allow for a faster recovery and pain reduction to allow our athletes to continue to train and compete (if safely possible).

Does Your Child Have A Sports Injury?

Sports chiropractic care combined with corrective exercise and massage, is effective and completely safe for treating youth athletes. Because Van Ness Chiropractic treats athletes of all ages, we are confident in treating your child’s injury.

Concussion Care

Sports chiropractic care in the weeks following a concussive injury can reduce symptoms and speed up the return to play.

A concussion occurs when an athlete receives a traumatic blow to the head, neck or body, changing the way the brain functions. A concussion can also cause a whiplash-type of injury to the neck. The term “whiplash” refers to a sprain/strain injury or tearing to the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the neck, causing a loss of normal function in the spine. When not evaluated and treated, an injury to the head and neck can have life-long effects.

Chiropractic care increases the performance of the nervous system and when combined with active exercise/rehabilitation is a favorable way to treat athletes with post-concussive syndrome – especially when symptoms last for a month or longer. Combining chiropractic care with standard concussion protocol can give your athlete the most effective method for returning the head and neck to a proper level of function thus ensuring a full, quick recovery.

I can't say enough about Dr. Jason Van Ness and the team at Van Ness Chiropractic! When people ask if I know a good Chiropractor in town, without hesitation, I recommend Van Ness Chiropractic. Not only for "fixing" what's broken, but for wellness maintenance, too. I see people in the office ranging from babies to elderly, athletes of all kinds, people who travel far and wide and make time, when in town, to visit Dr. Van Ness. Van Ness Chiropractic offers a vainly of services and is not limited to Chiropractic care. Besides my regular Chiropractic visits, I have taken advantage of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. My quality of life is enriched by regular visits to Dr. Jason Van Ness and his team!Stop by and meet the'll be thankful you did.

Dr.Van Ness has built himself a great place for health. I’ve been seeing him since he did a residency with Dr.Cox, late 1990s. As a legacy patient he has always kept me straight. He even came in on a weekend to assist my wife with an issue. His place isn’t just straightening crooked people. He treats young athletes to the “ole guys” equally. His center of health has a variety of therapists to get you the proper care you want.

I didn’t even know I had mild back problems until I came here. Very thorough and very friendly staff! I love the fact that it’s also a clean and safe place as they wipe surfaces often. Definitely recommend!
