Athletic Performance Medicine

RHMC is Santa Barbara’s Athletic Performance Medicine Center

Natural Athletic Performance Medicine is a holistic, comprehensive approach to sports injuries and performance. It is key that athletes’ hormones, digestive health and immune systems are well functioning to avoid burnout, injuries, and frequent illnesses. We take an in depth approach to optimizing your body so you can excel in your sport, while decreasing your risk of injury and down time.

Most conventional sports medicine treatments have a short-term pain relief benefit but rarely result in complete healing or recovery There’s more to sports medicine than ice, pain medications and compression! With our cutting edge therapies and perfomrance plans, we not only reduce pain and recovery time from injuries, but also prevent future injuries, while optimizing your current performance. 

As an athlete, Dr. ACE is keenly aware of the importance of supporting and optimizing her health  to boost performance. As a previous endurance athlete, now power athlete, Dr. ACE has been through too many injuries, over trained herself several times and knows what it feels like to have performance drop drastically. The good news is, by following these same protocols, she has also come out the other side feeling in top shape and ready to compete! She is an expert in sport nutrition, supplementation, hormone balancing and natural pain relief therapies. We look forward to boosting your performance and keeping you healthy for the long term. 

By educating athletes on how to nourish their bodies, including supportive nutrients, and understanding any metabolic, genetic variants or inefficiencies, recovery and performance drastically improve. 

We work with athletes of all kinds. We see all types of active people, from weekend warriors to elite runners, cyclists, power lifters, tennis players, triathletes, martial artists, golfers, swimmers, yogis and CrossFitters. It doesn’t matter how active you are, or if you’re just getting started – RHMC’s Athletic Performance Medicine can get you feeling and performing your best for the things in life that matter the most to you!

Prioritizing your health before serious symptoms present, allows you to minimize further exhaustion, injury and pain.
