Sports Medicine Therapies
Sport medicine evaluates the lifestyle and movements of the person and designs a program to prevent injuries and improve the health and physical condition of the person. We perform traditional chiropractic adjustments to the spine and combine them with other therapies for best results for each patient. Aligning the spine properly helps with mobility and movement in the body. Often we combine heat therapy, electrical stimulation, cold therapy with different forms of chiropractic treatment depending on the type of sports therapy needed.
Our chiropractor will design a special exercise program to stretch muscles and help heal the sports injury. They will show you how to do these exercises and you will be able to do them at home. These exercises reduce pain and promote flexibility after chiropractic sessions. Massage therapy relaxes patients and soothes tense muscle and tendons, increases blood flow, and reduce pain in the body. It is often used in our sports medicine program.
Sports medicine can help with neck injuries, sprains and strains, tendonitis, back injuries, and other injuries that occur. Chiropractic care aligns the spine helping the whole body to function better. It provides a wider range of motion and more flexibility. We help prevent serious sport injuries in the future. Our care is safe and effective for athletes of all ages.
Other Therapies Used In Sports Medicine
We have nutritional counseling for athletes. We design a program that includes the right foods for peak performance, hydration and fluids, teach how to prevent injuries, and recommend supplements that address certain deficiencies. We have protein shakes and drinks that build muscles and provide energy for workout and practices. We can work with patients with food allergies to design a diet suited to your needs. Diet is an important part of performance in sports.
Acupuncture is often used to treat sport injuries. It is used for back pain, neck pain, knee pain, elbows, arms, legs, and sciatica.
