Chiropractic Care Important for Sports Injury Rehab
A sports related injury can happen to anyone at any time – you don’t have to play professional sports to sustain an injury, and you don’t need to be a professional athlete to deserve high quality care. Maybe you tore a ligament sliding into home base at your company softball game or years of playing tennis and golf have led to elbow or shoulder pain. Whether you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain or knee pain, our sports injury rehab and chiropractic services will help your body heal faster.
Sports Injury Rehab Helps Patients Heal Faster
Repetitive motion injuries are one of the most common causes for elbow pain, especially if you play tennis or golf. This painful condition, known as lateral epicondylitis, is characterized by the inflammation of the tendons. Over time, improper motions while swinging a tennis racket or golf club strains the tendons, leading to inflammation and pain. This repetitive motion injury will worsen until one day you may find it difficult to not only hold a racket or club, but also struggle to even grasp a pen.
Our sports injury doctor combines physical medicine with chiropractic adjustments for optimal treatment. This combination of care provides both immediate pain relief while also addressing the underlying cause for injury. For example, many individuals are surprised to learn that an undiagnosed spinal misalignment may be affecting their swing. Chiropractic adjustments are essential to correcting this misalignment. At the same time, our patients benefit from physical medicine and sports injury rehab therapies. These therapies help reduce inflammation and swelling in the tendons and elbow, which minimizes pain and supports the body’s natural healing process.
Our sports rehab treatment is also beneficial following knee surgery. Knee pain is one of the most common sports injuries, especially for individuals with high-impact sports such as running. Even playing a pick-up game of soccer or football can also cause damage to the ACL or MCL. If you tear your ACL or MCL and have surgery, our sports injury chiropractor can help the rehab process. We integrate physical medicine treatments with corrective care exercises, along with chiropractic adjustments. This integrated approach to care is essential to building strength, improving flexibility and bringing a full range of movement back to the body after surgery.
Back pain is also a common sports injury complaint. Back pain is typically due to a herniated disc in the spine. When this disc compresses nearby nerves, injury victims will experience a radiating, numbing or throbbing pain sensation. Chiropractic adjustments are an important part of the healing process, reducing nerve compression and relieving this pain. If you are sore or stiff in your lower back, our corrective care exercises can also help bring natural mobility back to the body.
Whether you are suffering from knee pain, elbow pain, or back pain, our sports injury chiropractor can help. Don’t get stuck on the sidelines – contact us today to schedule your diagnostic appointment for a sports related injury.
