Dr. Wolfer is Fellowship-trained in Sports and Spine Medicine
She blends the best of traditional and integrative sports and spine medicine. Patients receive an in-depth evaluation of their injury, including a kinetic chain analysis looking for any weak links or old injuries that may have predisposed them to the current problem. Imaging is ordered as needed including x-ray, CT scan, MRI and ultrasound to precisely identify the pain generator. Next, a personalized rehabilitation plan is designed which often includes collaboration with physical therapists, Graston specialists, chiropractors, rolfers, acupuncturists etc. Some patients are good candidates for specific Regenerative Injection Therapies. (Patients can read more about specific RITs in the adjoining pages). Patients with concurrent health problems or a long history of injuries may benefit from a diet analysis and lab work to see if they have common correctable problems which can speed healing and return to sport: low iron, low progesterone, pre-diabetes/diabetes, adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems, low testosterone, low vitamin D etc.
