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.

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