Dr. Nardone moved to Tucson in 1986 to enjoy running,
mountain biking, and hiking. Dr. Nardone has also volunteered his Chiropractic
services at community and sporting events. He was a member of the
Friends of Sabino Canyon and former Board member and president of So.
Graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO. in 1985.
Dr. Nardone completed graduate study
and clinical work in treatment of athletic injuries and management of
physical fitness. He successfully completed a comprehensive exam to
receive certification. Sports injuries alter joint and muscle
functionality and flexibility. Dr. Nardone uses trigger point, Graston,
and other soft tissue techniques, as well as recommending exercises,
for the treatment of sports related injuries.
Trigger point therapy is the
application of pressure to an area of uncontrolled muscle tightness to
reduce muscle spasms and relax hyperactive muscles.
Dr. Nardone is a certified Graston
Practitioner having successfully completed Modules 1 and 2. Scar tissue
is less flexible and weaker than normal tissue. The Graston instruments
are able to detect and treat scar tissue that often cannot be detected
or treated as easily using other methods.
Dr. Nardone's training in sports medicine and rehabilitation enables him to develop individual programs to help patients stabilize the joints of the body and balance the muscles. Being a runner, including having run the Boston Marathon, helps him understand walking and running mechanics. Dr. Nardone videotapes walkers and runners and gives them specific exercises to help correct their form and minimize injuries. Nutritional advice is often recommended in addition to exercise.
Dr. Nardone is Chiropractic Board
Certified in Acupuncture since 1986. He studied Chinese Medicine and
Acupuncture at the Sante Fe College of Natural Medicine in 1978 and
1979. Dr. Nardone uses acupuncture as an adjunct to his Chiropractic
treatment. He has found it especially helpful for tendon injuries,
such as golf elbow, and nerve problems, such as headaches and
