Sports injuries include a range of conditions and severities. Lack of treatment can lead to more pain, tightness, stiffness, and injuries. Chiropractic care can help speed up recovery and increase your body's natural healing process while encouraging it to heal correctly.
Manual therapy can help relax tight and stiff muscles to facilitate a speedy recovery for specific conditions. Manual therapy techniques include by hand, IASMT (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), percussion therapy, and other methods.
This treatment option offers many benefits for sports injuries. Increased microcirculation helps speed up recovery by drawing in beneficial blood cell types responsible for the healing process. Dry needling helps increase the microcirculation in the area while providing muscle relaxation. Dry needling also plays a role in regulating the nervous system, which can help with pain reduction.
Our practice utilizes class IV laser therapy, the gold standard in laser recovery treatment. Class IV laser therapy has strong evidence for treating pain and conditions throughout the body. Read more about the fantastic benefits of laser therapy here.
Sports injuries often cause an increase in inflammation surrounding affected tissues. Ultrasound therapy uses ultrasonic sound waves to penetrate the tissue, thus breaking down inflammation in the treatment area.
Sports injuries can lead to tightness and stiffness of the joints and tissues in and around the area of injury. Chiropractic adjustments help restore the loss of range of motion to get you back to doing what you love most, sports.
Compression therapy uses air to compress the affected areas (legs, hips, or arms). Our compression therapy device helps remove toxic waste from tissues to decrease soreness and increase circulation.
Typically, cryotherapy (or ice) after an acute sports injury can help decrease inflammation. Later, heat treatments can aid in muscle relaxation.
