How Will Sports Injury Rehabilitation Benefit Me?
Chiropractic Care and Athletic Rehabilitation effectively treats injuries and helps to avoid future injuries.
Our Chiropractors and Athletic Trainers are experienced and compassionate about helping others. They have a vast depth of insight on rehabilitation treatments, including prevention of future injuries. Certified Sports Chiropractic Physicians and Athletic Trainers are experts in movement, with the ability to identify factors contributing to your injury that you may not have even considered. This may include limitations on your range of motion, motor control impairment, or weakness of the core. When these factors are addressed, your risk of injury significantly decreases.
Treatment plans are individualized to each patient.
Certified Chiropractic Sports Physicians and Athletic Trainers understand that no two athletes are the same. Thus, no two treatment plans should be the same, either. Everyone experiences pain and injury differently. Furthermore, everyone’s body recovers in different ways. After a thorough physical evaluation, your Chiropractor or Athletic Trainer will create a personalized treatment plan for you. This plan is based on your type of injury, stage of recovery, personal goals, in addition to any underlying conditions.
Your treatment plan will follow detailed steps all leading to your end goal: return to sport. For example, in the beginning stages of your recovery, your treatments will be focused on pain relief, inflammation reduction, and tissue healing. Once the pain is alleviated and the swelling is no longer present, you’ll move on to the next part of your treatment plan! Such as focusing on restoring your strength, balance, endurance, range of motion, and activating your central nervous system.
If you were referred by a doctor or surgeon, our Chiropractors and Athletic Trainers will take into account any special instructions you may have been given regarding physical activity. Additionally, our Athletic Trainers will work closely with anyone else involved in the medical treatment and rehabilitation of your sports injury.
Chiropractic Care and Athletic Rehabilitation can help you avoid potentially harmful drugs or invasive surgeries.
Your Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician or Athletic Trainer will create a treatment plan for you, based on your individual needs. Chiropractic Care and Athletic Rehabilitation are natural, holistic approaches to healing, including services such as:
- Therapeutic exercises.
- Modalities. This may include specialized treatments that your Chiropractor and Athletic Trainer have been certified to perform. Including ultrasound or electrical stimulation.
- Manual therapy. This may include massage or joint mobilizations.
Chiropractic and Athletic Rehab have been proven to be successful in treating both acute and chronic injuries, such as ligament sprains, muscle strains, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendinitis, and more. Your Chiropractor and Athletic Trainer will teach you about what your body is experiencing and the recovery process it will go through. Above all, you, your Chiropractor, and Athletic Trainer will work together to help you reach your physical goals, allowing you to be engaged and active in your rehabilitation.
