Treatment for Sports Injuries with Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care & Other Alternative Health Tehcniques
You may have heard the words, but need a greater understanding of your sports injury. If you have a strain, you have pulled or torn a muscle and typically feel discomfort in the muscle tissue. You may also see bruising or swelling in the area. Alternatively, a sprain occurs in the ligament, which attaches one bone to another the bone. You may have pulled or torn a ligament and have noticed pain during movement or a reduction in your range of motion.
When you have overused a joint, you may experience tendonitis. This inflammation of the tendon, which connects the muscle to the bone, may flare up if you are repeatedly performing a motion such as swinging a golf club, throwing a ball, or running. The tendons become inflamed and you experience discomfort and a reduction in your range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments to your extremities such as your wrists, ankles, shoulders and knees help you manage pain and promote a healthy alignment for healing.
A concussion occurs after a bump or a hit to the head and can often occur in sports such as football, soccer and hockey. If you or your child is experiencing symptoms of a concussion such as a lengthy headache, vision difficulties or upper-back pain, call our sports injury clinic today. Spinal adjustments are key to reducing the discomfort from a concussion and can also help to stabilize a spine for proper blood flow. An increase in blood flow allows nutrients to heal the damaged area and alleviate your pain.
Strains respond well to massage therapy, physical therapy and laser treatments. Our comprehensive techniques/treatment options help to increase blood flow to the torn muscle to promote healing of the tissue. We'll also show you exercises that are safe to perform during recovery to help maintain your muscle tissue and strengthen the supporting muscles while you are healing.
We can help reduce the inflammation in the area and re-establish a comfortable range of motion so you can return to your sport of choice. Chiropractic adjustments ensure that the bone remains in proper alignment as the ligament heals.
