What’s an effective treatment for a sports injury? Chiropractic treatment is effective for sports injuries to the soft tissue or joints of your knees, hips, spine, shoulders or feet. Chiropractic care will help to relieve pressure from your joints and nerves and help your body heal itself to relieve your pain.
At our chiropractic clinic, we offer chiropractic adjustments and other natural treatments such as laser therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, shockwave therapy and spinal decompression. We will create a custom treatment plan to help you heal from your injury and get back playing as soon as possible.
Sports Injury Doctor
Injuries from playing sports can range from mild to severe, and many times, the impact from falls or bumps can result in your vertebrae becoming misaligned. It doesn’t matter if you like to play a pick-up game of basketball on the weekend or you’re a professional athlete, sports injuries can affect your athletic performance and your day-to-day life.
Our sports injury doctor can help relieve your pain naturally without the need for drugs or surgery. When you have a sports injury and just mask the symptoms with medication, it doesn’t address the cause of the injury. The pain you experience is just a by-product of the damage to your joints, tissues or bones, and it’s important to treat the cause so that pain no longer exists.
Treatments for Sports Injuries
At our chiropractic clinic, we offer a range of different treatments for sports-related injuries to help get you on the road to recovery as soon as possible. We offer chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, laser therapy, physical therapy, spinal decompression and shockwave therapy to help restore your health and prevent injuries from happening again in the future.
Our chiropractor will perform manual adjustments to your misaligned joints to help bring you back into balance and relieve pressure. These adjustments are performed using short lever thrusts to release gas that’s trapped in your joints and bring them back into alignment. The crack that is heard during an adjustment is the gases being released.
When you have physical therapy for sports injuries, we will use specialized equipment and exercises to help strengthen and stabilize injured tissue and muscles. These treatments will reduce pain, increase balance and flexibility, reduce inflammation and boost your range of motion to facilitate healing.
Some of the common sports injuries our natural treatments can help include:
- Sprains and strains
- Torn ligaments
- Spinal misalignment
- Cartilage damage
- Nerve damage
