|Developing Your Core
Core muscle strength helps reduce the impact of a whiplash injury. Your core muscle layer is the deepest layer of muscles in your body. Core muscles include very small muscles that connect two vertebras, thin sheets of muscle that connect groups of vertebras, the four muscle groups that comprise the abdominal muscles, and various small muscles that stabilize the pelvic floor.

Welcome to Washington Injury and Sports Performance Clinic!
At our clinic, we help improve your quality of life by offering care customized to
your needs. You may be recovering from an injury, seeking to treat an ongoing condition, looking to improve athletic performance, or just want to feel healthier and more mobile. Doctor Glodzik and Doctor Osborn can help!
We will work with you address the underlying cause of soft tissue pain - pain affecting muscle, tendons, ligments, and facisa. Once your immediate pain is under control, the doctors will correct posture and gait issues, or teach you stretches and strength building exercises that will help you stay healthy and prevent future injury.
Upon your first appointment, the doctor will discuss your symptoms with you, then perform an exam to assess your mobility and reflexes. Once the doctor has made a diagnosis and determined that chiropractic care is a good fit for you, he will discuss a treatment plan to get you back to the activities you love.
