Dr. Pirano has many years of experience evaluating and treating sports related injuries and omplaints. Dr. Piranio also played collegiate level ice hockey and currently participates  in league sports and is an avid golfer.As a sports chiropractor, Dr. Piranio helps in the
restoration of proper joint function of the spine or extremities, and the strengthening of support muscles and soft tissues. This usually involves specific spinal or other joint adjustments, combined with a program of strengthening, resistance training, and exercises to improve muscle tone and coordination.
Kinesio taping is also available at San Diego Chiropractic Group. For more than 25 years, Kinesio taping has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management, and injury prevention. The Kinesio
taping method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s normal range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurologic, and medical conditions including: carpal tunnel syndrome,
tennis elbow, lower back pain, knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring strains, and ankle sprains.
