Sports Chiropractic

Some Sports Chiropractors identify themselves merely by the fact they do Chiropractic on athletes with traditional adjustments.

At Mountain Movement Center we go much farther with our care of athletes.  Because of our experience working with professional athletes and novice athletic teams for 9 years we apply the same care seen backstage at any major sporting event.  We now bring our unique approach to Sports Chiropractic to Greenville, SC.

This type of Sports Chiropractic incorporates:

-Soft Tissue and Muscle Therapy

-Sports specific analysis and a catered home exercise plan

-Fascia balancing

-Treatment “functionally.”  We have been known to treat the athletes while in a dynamic athletic position.

-Coordination of care with your coach, personal trainer, and other practitioners.

-Chiropractic care specific to your needs.

Why do Athletes need Chiropractic?

Athletes understand inherently they need their muscles and tendons to perform at their best.  These structures are the strength and power for the endeavor they need to excel at.

But what most athletes overlook in imbalance in the joints.  This is where a comprehensive treatment incorporating not only muscle but joint can give the athlete the pain free range of motion they have been looking for.

Who have we treated and what have we learned?

Our team has treated pro surfers, golfers, runners & triathletes.  We have also treated semi pro paddlers, and cyclists.

Dr. Day served as team doctor to sole runners marathon team for 7 years, and Kahakai outrigger paddling for 2 years before relocating to Greenville, SC.

We get to the bottom of the problematic injury:

Because of the functional movement exam we can bettter analyze what is called the “kinetic chain.”  Your muscles and joints are supposed to fire in a specific sequence.  If they do not we will see inflammation, spasm, or tigthness at the point of compensation. 

Most of athletic injuries that are overuse injuries are from this phenomenon.

The second most common cause are patterns in the body from a sport only moving the body in one direction.  In a golfer for instance we want to make sure both sides of the body can rotate and bend in symmetry or eventually injury will occur.

The third athletic injury is trauma based.   By applying taping techniques, electro-stimulation, vibration plate, gentle soft tissue therapy, and joint mobilization in the proper time we can decrease the time spent out of commission.

The Chiropractic techniques we employ at Mountain Movement

The Day Method

A proprietary blend of soft tissue, chiropractic, and rehabilitation created by Dr. Michael Day D.C..


The best of every chiropractic technique under one “Diversified” approach.  Diversified involves hands on balancing of every joint of your body.

Flexion Distraction

Great for disc pain and low back pain.  The table drops down in order to allow the doctor to great a stretch in the muscles, joints and discs of the lumbar spine.


Using a spring action tool.  A gentle impulse is delivered to the injured joint or muscle.

This precise movement moves the joint that has been locked.  Very great research has been done on the activator for reducing back and neck pain.  This is an amazing option for those apprehensive of hearing an audible release during an adjustment.  It is also extremely useful in those who have suffered an acute injury.


Myofascial Release Technique is not a traditionally excluded to Chiropractic.  Dr. Day employs this technique to balance the muscles and tendons that can cause pain and dysfunction.  Combining soft tissue techniques with Chiropractic is unique in the field, and is why our clinic is called Mountain Movement Center.


The fascia of your cranium travels through the skull starting at each suture.  Cranial balancing is employed for tough cases of TMJ, Headaches, and Pediatric cases.

Low Force/Mobilization

Mobilizations are great for acute injuries, senior citizens, and those nervous about Chiropractic adjustments where an audible noise is heard. The joints is gently moved through it’s range of motion.

The Day Method

Alongside traditional Chiropractic, Dr. Michael Day createda proprietary method that he found got patients better, fasterat his practice in Southern California.

The Day Method combines all of the past methods of Traditional Chiropractic with a blend of numerous disciplines:  But most importantly it’s GENTLE.

The key to the day method is that is “Graded” to the needs and comfort level of the patient.  Dr. Day met enough patients over his 8 years in practice to realize not all patients are candidatesfor the audible noise adjustment, and adapted his careto fit all patient needs.

Those who are smaller in stature or who have just been through an acute injury would receive a much softer method of mobilizing the Nerve-Joint-Muscle communication.  As well, infants and pregnant mothers recieve an entirely different approach than an everyday patients.


 There are a lot of choices when it comes to choosing the practitioner that will assist you with muscle pain, natural health, and nutrition.

The best of every chiropractic technique under one “Diversified” approach.  Diversified involves hands on balancing of every joint of your body.

Grade 2

Instrument assisted spinal and muscle adjustments and light ossciallation.

This level uses a spring action tool to apply a directed movement to a stuck spinal or extremity joint.  The movement signals new nerve signals between the joints, muscles and brain)


Grade 3: Mobilization

Adjustments are given that take the joint through it’s full ROM with no Audible crack.  A table called a flexion distraction table is often performed.  As the table drops the elongation of joints are given an overpressure by the doctor.  This mobilizes low back and midback joints gently.


With the Day Method Dr. Day was successful in changing patients away from Misconceptions about Chiropractic.  He had reservations about Chiropractic care at his first office visit in 2004 and it changed his life so much, he went on to chiropractic school.
