All of these conditions need help from a chiropractor in order to be effectively treated.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Leaving a sports injury untreated increases the chances of future injuries, as well as increases the chances of permanent damage to an injured muscles. Chiropractic care can help alleviate symptoms of pain, while helping the injured muscle or area naturally heal itself through different techniques. These techniques include:
- Spinal or manual adjustments, which place the spine back in alignment and improve posture, mood, balance, and reduce pain.
- Muscle stretches or exercises to improve mobility, flexibility, and strength in injured areas of the body.
- Spinal decompression, a unique technique that can help alleviate back pain due to compressed nerves.
- Trigger point therapy, which targets specific damaged tissues deep in the body using advanced technology.
Our chiropractor will conduct a physical exam and imaging tests, such as x-rays, to determine which of these treatment methods is right for an athlete. We will then provide follow-up care to ensure the injury is being properly addressed.
