Up Your Game With Our Sports Injury Chiropractor
A sports injury chiropractor does more than just keep your body in proper alignment. Sports chiropractic care can get you ready to participate in sports, help you deal with the stress and strain caused by physical activity, enable you to perform at a higher level for longer periods of time, and recover from sports injuries more quickly. Some of the many ways sports can leave you feeling less than 100% include:
- Repetitive motions like hitting a tennis ball or swinging a bat can teach your muscles to react differently.
- Runners give their feet, ankles and toes a pounding,
- Knees take a great deal of stress from sudden stops and turns in sports like basketball.
- Poor form in a golf swing can throw off the balance of your hips or cause a bulging disc in your back.
- Everyday strains, sprains, pulls and aches caused by over-extension, over-exertion, and collisions.
While most chiropractors focus just on the back and neck, sports-specific chiropractors look at the whole body. We provide chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue maintenance and nutritional advice to repair any damage and strengthen your body to keep you from experiencing future injuries.
What is causing the pain?
Soft tissue conditions often do not show up in radiographic studies. When soft tissue has been injured, or even chronically tight, it forms scar tissue. While necessary for healing, scar tissue may stick to adjacent structures restricting range of motion and may cause compression over nerves or blood vessels. This condition alters the texture of soft tissue, which an experienced Active Release Techniques provider can diagnose and treat.
Types Of Treatments Available From A Sports Chiropractor
Our sports chiropractor and the team of caring professionals at Healing Hands Chiropractic are committed to providing chiropractic solutions that meet your unique athletic needs. Our goal is to “Create healthy, active lifestyles by tapping your body’s potential and nurturing a positive mind-set.” To accomplish this, we first talk to you, assess your physical condition, and determine what you are trying to achieve from sports chiropractic care. Then we recommend a treatment plan that may include:
- Sports Performance Chiropractic Care: A sports chiropractor focuses on the unique connection between body wellness and performance levels. We don’t just help you recuperate from sports injuries. We work to prevent injuries and help you perform at your best. We look at everything from diet and lifestyle to form and sports habits to map out a care plan specifically for you.
- Sports Nutrition: Your habits off the field can impact your performance on the field, especially when it comes to hydration, dietary requirements, and supplements. Some factors we evaluate when making nutrition recommendations include level of physical fitness, intensity and duration of activity, as well as weight and fitness goals.
