ChiroStrength's philosophy for patient care is simple: Educate as much as possible and treat only as much as necessary. This Business will transcend what you currently think of as “Conservative care” and by meshing the fitness and chiropractic industry. ChiroStrength will not only provide relief from joint and muscle pain through treatment, but train the body through carefully planned corrective exercise programs to move on a more solid foundation with much less risk of injury. ChiroStrength also offers several avenues to educate yourself about healthcare and fitness topics through the Blog on this site, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. You'll find instructional videos on everything from safe ways to self-treat, knowing the difference between injury and pain, and safe exercises for core, hip, and shoulder strengthening.
Performance doesn’t have to mean playing a sport at a high level. Performance for you may mean walking your dog or being a care taker for your family. Performance is simply using your body to accomplish tasks of your daily routines and hobbies, all of which requires a certain degree of mobility, stability, and strength.
In most rehab settings you’ll get a piece of paper that gives you low level exercises and after 1 or 2 sessions you go through the drills while someone watches over you from afar. There is very little personalization of the recovery geared towards your goals.
If you’re goal is to get back to performance, it’s important to find someone who can provide you that personalized treatment and recovery program that will get you back to doing what you love with less injury risk, not simply get you moving pain free for a short period of time.
So if you’re looking for an experience where you’ll learn to take control of your rehab and bridge that gap from recovery to performance, reach out and Dr. Dunaway will be happy to discuss how ChiroStrength may be able to help you.
The foundation of all programs used at ChiroStrength are based on what Dr. Dunaway calls the trinity of human movement: Mobility, Stability and Strength.
Mobility is the ability for the body to move freely both globally and segmentally. Due to a number of reasons, the average person experiences stiffness in different areas like the spine, shoulders, hips, or ankles which leads to an increased risk of injury. The first approach to Dr. Dunaway’s care is making sure the areas which are not moving sufficiently regain that mobility. This is accomplished with Chiropractic adjustments and treating the soft tissues with ART.
Stability simply means being able to control the motion you have. Without this ability, spinal discs and joint cartilage get damaged due to constantly getting over stressed in daily life. By gaining stability with corrective exercises, and eventually group training, the patient gains a solid foundation with which to improve their strength with much lower risk of injury.
Most injuries come from lacking the strength to support quality movement throughout the day. A lack of strength also prevents people from being able to enjoy most hobbies as well. Gaining strength in the core, hips, shoulders, and grip for example, will spare the uneven wear and tear that shows up as early degeneration. Gaining strength on a foundation that has good mobility and stability will improve a person’s chance to live a long, injury free, happy life.
Dr. Dunaway is originally from Cape Girardeau MO. He is the youngest in a family of 4 boys, which is to say he was constantly busy with sports…and getting hurt. His family environment growing up nurtured a passion for an active, healthy life in a large part due to his mother being a Registered Dietitian. It was after a baseball injury that Dr. Dunaway got his first chiropractic adjustment, after which, to his surprise, he was able to play in his very next game. It was at this point he knew there was something special about Chiropractic.
He went on to attend Logan College of Chiropractic and graduated Cum Laude in December of 2012. While attending Chiropractic school he went on to get full body certified in Active Release Technique to improve his knowledge in biomechanics and soft tissue treatment. Upon graduation he moved to Clarksville TN to begin practice.
For the first 3 years in Clarksville, Dr. Dunaway practiced traditional chiropractic but focused most of his continuing education on functional movement and kettlebell training. He quickly realized the need to incorporate corrective exercise and fitness into his Chiropractic philosophy in order to provide the most efficient and long lasting results for his patients. ChiroStrength is the accumulation of 7 years of education, 3 years of practice, and countless hours and weekends at seminars learning how to best to incorporate coaching and treating into a package of care. With ChiroStrength, Dr. Dunaway is finally able to provide his patients with everything he knows to not just get his patients out of pain, but teach them the importance of daily movement and sustainable exercise to prevent injury in the future.
