An Elite Sports Medicine Chiropractor
Most athletes accept that participating in any sport involves putting your body at risk for some kind of injury. Whether it’s a strain, tear, or sprain caused by high-velocity sports like running, or a repetitive stress injury caused by high-impact sports like football, seeing a chiropractor is a smart idea for athletes looking for long-term relief and preventative care.
Chiropractic as preventative care for athletes
Chiropractic adjustments are an essential part of how our chiropractors treat and help prevent injuries in your neck, back, shoulders, knees, and ankles. Spinal adjustments not only ensure that your vertebrates are lined up but also helps to balance out your posture balanced, relieving pockets of tension throughout your entire body.
At Active Body Chiropractic, the goal of most of our chiropractic techniques is to help restore or enhance joint function while resolving issues like inflammation, pain, and discomfort. Our hands-on approach to sports therapy is informed by science as well as experience; both of our chiropractic physicians are veteran athletes who are familiar with the unique physical demands an athletic lifestyle has of your body.
Benefit from the proven techniques used by our sports injury chiropractors
Two of the most common techniques employed at Active Body Chiropractic to treat sports injuries are spinal manipulation and spinal mobilization. Spinal manipulation helps to release pressure in your joints while realigning your muscles and joints to improve their function. For patients requiring a more gentle approach to their treatment, spinal mobilization is a set of effective and relatively painless tools, techniques, and stretches that our chiropractic physicians employ to release pressure in joints.
Depending on your symptoms and treatment needs, our team may also incorporate other therapies and techniques including ice and heat therapies, electric stimulation, or even ultrasound therapies. Going to your chiropractor regularly will not only promote recovery after training and games, but it can also improve your overall performance. If you’ve become injured, it is imperative that you seek the attention of sports injury chiropractor as soon as possible to relieve your pain and help you heal faster.
Some common sports injuries that bring athletes to our offices include:
- Forceful impact injuries
- Repetitive motion or stress injuries,
- Strain, tears or sprains caused by over-training or failure to warm up properly
