Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
As you age, sports injuries take longer to heal. Without proper attention, these injuries may linger and plague you with problems later on. Shoulder pain and knee pain are often from injuries sustained at an earlier time. By addressing injuries early on, you may avoid long-term problems. Our team at Integrative Holistic Center in Wayne is here to help you heal properly from sports-related injuries.
Treating Sports Injuries
Leaving your sports injuries untreated can lead to significant complications later on. An injury that has not properly healed may compound itself, causing that small discomfort to turn into something that may prevent your body from performing at its optimal level. Dr. Singer and his staff are here to help correct these injuries and restore your full functionality.
Here are some of the more common sports-related conditions treated at our office:
- Shin splints: These are often found in runners, tennis, soccer, and basketball players due to frequent start and stop motions. Those with chronic pain usually receive treatment on their ankles, calves, and feet.
- Knee injuries: Runner's knee causes pain and tenderness by the kneecap or around the sides of the knee. Imbalances of the feet and misalignments of the hip and spine often cause it. Our team will make adjustments to properly align the affected area with easing the stress on joints, decreasing inflammation to help with healing.
- Sprains and strains: Sprains and strains happen when a tendon, ligament, or muscle is torn. Often massage is used to increase proper blood flow to help reduce inflammation. Additionally, to treat sprains and strains, a combination of ultrasound, laser therapy, hot/cold compresses, electrotherapy, and a slow increase of exercises to strengthen the affected area is utilized.
- Shoulder Injuries: The shoulder joint is supported by surrounding tendons, muscles, and ligaments that are susceptible to injury. Forward and backward movement in the shoulder is possible because of its versatility in various motions. This continuous movement of arms in any direction can cause too much friction, subjecting your shoulder joint to pain.
