Chiropractic Treatment For Sports Injuries
People who engage in sports activities understand the rigors and the heavy demands they place on their bodies. Even what many people classify as low impact sports like bowling, pool or golf can be just as demanding on the muscles, ligaments and joints of the body as many full contact sports. Here at Arlington Chiropractic Clinic, P.C., we treat all types of sports injuries. Our goal is not just to treat the injuries our patients sustain, but to work with them and provide them with the tools they need to help minimize or prevent a sports injury in the future. Here are a few facts about sports injuries, and how our chiropractors can help you.
Types of Sports Injuries
Whether you are a sports enthusiast, a professional athlete, or a weekend warrior, chiropractic treatments can prove to be of great benefit to you. You should remember, not all sports injuries occur as the result of contact. Many of them occur over time due to repetition. Some injuries can be years in the making. A minor injury like a sprain you acquired while engaging in some type of recreational sports activity, for example, may not bother you for years and then all of a sudden can just flare up. Chiropractic treatments not only help you heal and recover from a recent injury, they help to maintain the body even when an injury is not necessarily apparent.
Some common sports injuries that we treat include:
- Back and neck strain
- Extremity sprains (shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle)
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Tennis/golfers elbow
Experience Safe and Effective Treatment
Our Doctors of Chiropractic offer safe and effective treatment options for sports injuries. It takes the body time to heal from an injury, and our treatment methods encourage natural healing of the injured tissues, unlike the artificial process that occurs with the use of prescription drugs. Chiropractic treatments for sports injuries are designed to reduce inflammation, restore normal movement, strengthen weakened tissues, and correct alignment issues while using non-invasive treatment modalities like spinal and extremity adjustments, electro-stimulation therapy, ultrasound therapy, massage therapy, bracing, orthotics, and rehabilitation exercises.
