Sports rehabilitation at Designed 2 Move in Ankeny combines the assessment or whole body movement patterns with sport specific movements for the athlete, and daily life specific movements for the "non-athlete", to understand pain patterns on a more thorough and complete level. This then allows the doctors to assist the patient toward a more effective and efficient recovery. Restoring proper movement patterns is the key to mitigating pain for the short and long term. Research has proven that the combination of joint manipulation and specific active rehabilitation is more effective than manipulation or rehabilitation alone (Annals of Internal Medicine, 2004).
