Exstore assessment

Exstore

For all injuries and patients, the Exstore system of assessment is the foundation of all Jackupuncture assessments and treatments. Exstore is a functional system of assessment that helps identify neuromuscular inhibition, which will be experienced as weakness during the test. Neuromuscular inhibition is often overlooked and unaddressed, but plays a role in joint, nerve, soft tissue, range of motion, and muscular issues. Exstore helps us quickly identify where to start treatment, ensuring you leave the very first session feeling and moving better. As Hawaii’s only healthcare professional to have personally trained with the creator of Exstore, Dr. Anthony Lombardi, Jack’s assessments put you on the fast track to lasting recovery. Also, by helping reduce the number of overall treatments needed, Jack’s expertise with Exstore maximizes your results while saving you time and money. Jack proudly continues his education with Dr. Lombardi and other experienced leaders in healthcare to ensure Jackupuncture patients always receive the best care possible.

pre-competition assessment

Pre-Season/Pre-Competition Assessments

 Jackupuncture offers pre-season/pre-competition assessments for combat and contact sports athletes, including:

  • fighters (MMA, Muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing, wrestling, judo, BJJ, etc.)
  • football players
  • soccer players
  • rugby players
  • basketball players

These assessments before the active season, competition training or fight camp provide important baseline data that can be used to asses for injury and declines in performance. Changes in these physical and cognitive/neurological baseline measurements during training or fight camp give us insight into where and how your performance could be improved, and what interventions should be considered to reduce your risk of injury. These assessments are particularly vital for combat and combat sports athletes because changes in specific markers increase risk for concussion and can indicate more serious injury or prolonged recovery if unaddressed. We highly recommend all competitive athletes interested in a long and active sports career consider making baseline assessments with Jackupuncture a part of their regular routine.

WAVi EEG Scans

WAVi is a unique electroencephalogram (EEG) that assesses cognitive performance and its impact on physical performance. WAVi measures and analyzes the electrical activity of your brain to help identify areas of healthy and impaired performance. WAVi provides a range of data and reports, helping Jackupuncture assess the impact of injuries like concussion on the brain. These scans are also valuable for assessing patient progress as they rehabilitate concussions and return to sport, work, school, and life. The reports provided by WAVi help us provide care in cases of cognitive decline, head injury, and concussion, as well as identify ways to enhance athletic performance for athletes who physically show no outward signs of decline.

WAVi Research has conducted extensive studies, including research on pre-symptomatic Alzheimer’s, long-term concussion impacts on NCAA athletes, correlations between hearing loss and cognitive function, connections between heart and brain health, and the effects of interventions on brain performance, such as ADHD medication. Notably, WAVi has also been awarded an NIH grant to investigate acute pain and opioid abuse.
