As Zen Den’s Director of Sports Performance, Dr. Leith specializes in sports injury prevention, diagnosis, treatment  & rehabilitation.

 

Although the majority of sports-related injuries we see are due to over-use versus traumatic injury, we thoroughly screen patients to determine the source of injury including a comprehensive movement and full medical evaluation. The screening should be performed when the athlete can move normally without any pain.

Dr. Leith is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic specializing in the conservative management of Sports Injuries and neuromusculoskeletal conditions. He has completed the requisite post-graduate study and is a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician.

As a doctor, I am not analyzing the movement for instruction purpose, but rather to investigate any faulty motor patterns that may lead to or cause an injury. The visual movement analysis is then paired with a physical exam to determine any weak or tight muscles, and possible movement pattern deficiencies. If I can visually detect a faulty motor pattern, i.e. improper mechanics that place undue stress on the body, I then cross check it with the physical exam to see if a physical limitation is the cause of the faulty motor pattern. Then the appropriate therapeutic exercise is introduced to eliminate the cause and not the symptoms. — Dr. Jay
