How a Chiropractor Helps Sports Injuries
Our chiropractors will conduct a physical exam to determine the extent of your injuries. We will require a physical assessment, your medical history, and imaging tests like x-rays if necessary.
We will also provide chiropractic treatment for your recovery needs. This includes massage therapy to ease tension and alleviate pain in injured muscles. Myofascial release and trigger point therapy are excellent treatments to reduce pressure and help tissues heal. In addition, muscle exercises can also help strengthen the injured muscle, improve mobility, and improve your range of motion.
Spinal adjustments are also a great way to realign the spine, restore balance, and take pressure off surrounding injured tissues and nerves. Using these treatments, a chiropractor can help reduce re-injury to your muscles as well as pain.
