Our Services

Golf Swing Analysis

Our therapists are TPI certified, which means that they have gone through rigorous training to learn the ins-and-outs of golf performance. Our main goal is to make you hit the ball longer, further, and straighter. 

 

Injury Rehabilitation

Our team's goal is to rehabilitate your injury back to functional health though exercise and proper performance. Pain medications and shots only mask your symptoms, which never fixes the injury itself. We want to fix the cause of the injury so that you live the life that you deserve!


Injury Prevention

Although we can rehabilitate injuries, we don't want you to be injured in the first place. Our skilled biomechanics specialists can help you for the long run, allowing you to play for years to come.

Testimonials

Pain and weakness in the hands

Dr. Dawson's extensive knowledge was evident to me from the beginning of our first visit. He recognized the cause of the pain and weakness in my thumbs, and prescribed a regimen for me that has provided immense relief for that problem. In addition, he helped me by preparing custom videos of his prescribed exercise routines designed to strengthen my injured knee. Not only did he personally show me the exact ways to move my knee and position my body during the exercises, but I have found at home that I sometimes refer to the videos he made while we were together, for clarification. I appreciate Dr. Dawson's patient and caring approach. I felt that he was working for me, every minute of our time together. I hope to enjoy practicing for at least another 20 years, and I believe that Dr. Dawson will help me achieve that goal! James Perkins, D.V.M.
