August 2017 CUSMPC Newsletter
Featured Services at CU Sports Performance
Our newest addition to CUSMPC is our DARI system, a state of the art marker-less predictive motion analytics platform that captures full body kinematics and kinetics through 19 different movements. DARI analyzes strength, power, and flexibility to prevent injuries before they happen. DARI is useful for every type of athlete, regardless of age or level of fitness. Our physical therapists are able to use this technology to help move their rehab patients to the next level of recovery just as our sports science department uses it to help move athletes to the next level of performance.
RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate)
We have reinstated our RMR service in our Sports Performance section of CUSMPC this summer! Your resting metabolic rate functions as a foundation to develop a personalized nutrition plan and for weight management. It is the energy your body uses to sustain vital functions (breathing, cell growth and repair, circulation) and is 60% of your total calories each day. Knowing your RMR, how many calories your body uses, allows you to adjust your diet and exercise plan at an individualized level.
Our very own, Dr. Inigo San Millan, developed the Musclesound technology alongside Dr. John C. Hill. Musclesound is a non-invasive ultrasound assessment that measures your glycogen stores and recovery rate. Used pre and post workout, this gives you a very individualized look into how you are storing your carbohydrate, how you are using it during your workout, and your ability to recover your glycogen stores afterwards. The measurements and data taken from the ultrasound allows our sports performance providers to give you specific recommendations on training and nutrition that will optimize your performance and recovery.
One of our massage therapists, Kate Dean, has recently been certified to practice craniosacral therapy! This practice evaluates and enhances the function of the craniosacral system, a physiological body system comprising of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. It is done by using a gentle, hands on method and is used to complement the body’s natural healing processes and is being used more frequently as a preventative health measure.

The American College of Sports Medicine hosts an annual medical conference in Denver. This is the most comprehensive sports medicine and exercise conference in the world and we were lucky enough to have a few of our own representing our clinic here at CU Sports Medicine and Performance Center. Our very own presenters included Dr. Eric McCarty MD, Dr. Inigo San Millan PhD, Dr. Sherrie Ballantine DO, and Anne McNamara MPT.
