Maryland Sports Injury Center
OUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
A statement by Hippocrates best summarizes our practice philosophy: “The function of protecting and developing health must rank even above that of restoring it when it is impaired.” At Maryland Sports Injury Center, we have integrated many therapies into a pioneering form of injury care, health development, and sports/life performance we call Integrated Functional Performance.
Our doctors and performance coaches integrate different therapies like Active Release Technique®, Graston Technique®, Chiropractic Care, several forms of electrical stimulation and ultrasound, and corrective exercise to treat the nervous system, soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments), and the joints. We apply these therapies in a functional manner in an effort to relieve pain, restore optimal function, and maintain health. Our goal is to improve your daily life, whether that means your performance on the field or court or your ability to lift your child or get in and out of your car.
Each patient or client is examined and evaluated to determine his or her specific needs. We then develop a customized program of care and/or training and proceed accordingly. We have organized our services into three categories. Please click on the link that interests you most.

“After reading your Back on Track letter, I also would like to write a Testimonial about my health. I went to my Orthopedic Doctor for the awful pain I had. It turned out to be a Sciatica Nerve. After seven (7) Tripe Injections into the spinal canal, X-rays, MRI’s and many trips to the doctors office, I was told that I had ‘2 choices’. A back operation or stand the pain. I guess they never heard of my third choice, YOU. After 2 treatments I put my cane away and have not seen it since last October 1997. The last time I was there I told you my neck was so stiff I couldn’t turn it it was making me light headed. In about 5 minutes you took it all away. Dr. Horwitz, I want to thank you for all you have done for me. A letter is being formed that I am going to send to T.V. stations, State officials, and I would like Medicare to know how much money you have save them. Thank you again, I am so happy that my Grandson found you.

In early spring of 1998, 1 was suffering from fairly intense back and shoulder pain. Being a hard-headed individual, I decided to ignore the pain, and to work through it, keeping up with my regular schedule of workouts and other outdoor activities, figuring that the pain would quickly pass. It did Along with the pain went about 70% of my strength on my right side. Literally, over night I was barely able to dumbbell press l5lbs. on my right side, where before the injury I was routinely putting up 85-90lbs. I was truly frightened I had never before in my life experienced any form of paralysis, which is the best way I can describe how I fell. I had no pain in my right side, but I had also lost the use of most of my triceps and pectoral muscles. I quickly found myself bounced around to several specialists, including a neuro-surgeon who told me that I must completely stop working out, for good I was also told that I should strongly consider surgery, and that things would probably get worse for me if I did not get the surgery that was needed This was an answer that I simply could not accept.
Eventually, I met Dr. Horwitz. Being an athletic person himself, he knew that telling me to stop working out was not only unnecessary, but an instruction that I would probably not follow.
Dr. Horwitz explained that I would eventually make a full recovery, if I followed his program. He outlined exactly how I could continue working out with my injury, and how we would make my recovery happen. After a few visits to Dr. Horwitz, I began to get my strength back. Along with my strength came the relief of knowing I was on the right track to a recovery. I continued following his program, and now I am very close to making a full recovery. I am excited about not only getting my strength back, but I look forward to continued workouts and improving . My strength far beyond my strength before my injury– all without surgery! ”

“During my months spent in therapy in the hands of Dr. Horwitz, he contributed tremendously to my overall physical well being through the use of proper chiropractic techniques and methods. His extensive knowledge, caring attitude and sincere interest played a major role in my regaining self-confidence lost while being plagued with a history of ‘chronic back problems and numerous surgical procedures (including a cervical fusion and lumbar laminectomy). I’ve gained strength and had relief of my pain – R-e-n-e-w-a-l! Thank you and my higher power for such great “hands-on ” treatment!”
