Chiropractic Care for Sport Injuries
Treating Sport Injuries with Chiropractic Care
Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend sports warrior, injuries can be detrimental to your athletic performance and overall wellness. Sports injuries are a simple formula, when the load on the body’s structures are higher than our conditioning and ability to cope with that stress, injuries tend to occur.
Tendons, ligaments, muscle and joints are all structures that have to withstand a wide array of stressors when playing sports. From the stop and go movements, to the repetitive nature of the sports, playing sports tend to put our bodies through excessive load and tension. Injuries can also happen through trauma such as in hockey or football which may cause our muscles, joints and ligaments to fail under that load.
Our approach to chiropractic care is ideal to help you recover from a sports injury, help prevent future injuries, and improve your athletic performance. Our goal will be to help diagnose your sport injury through a series of athletic assessments and movements to figure out the root cause of your injury or imbalance. We then use our various sport therapies including instrument massage therapy, manual therapy, chiropractic adjustments, medical acupuncture, compression therapy, Kinesio-Taping and rehab exercises to help you recover from your injury in an efficient and healthy way. This way you can get back to your activity as soon as possible without the risk of re-injury.
Our chiropractors also recommend preventative chiropractic care for all athletes to help keep their body functioning optimally and prevent sports injuries from re-occurring.
