Sports injuries can be complex, painful, and long-lasting. Indeed, some sports injuries can cause long-term or even life-long complications depending upon the severity of the injury and the health of the patient.
At Kouimanis Chiropractic, we know how devastating a complex sports injury can be. Not only may a sports injury mean that you’re unable to play your favorite sport for the time being, but it may also leave you unable to do other basic things, result in high medical bills, and create high levels of stress about the future. If traditional therapies for treating your sports injury have failed, call us today. Chiropractic care can be essential in alleviating pain.
Not all sports injuries are as simple as a sprained ankle that heals in a few weeks’ time. Sometimes, sports injuries are more severe and leave patients in pain for weeks, months, or years. If this sounds like you, we can help. The types of sports injuries that we treat vary, but some of the most common injury types we see include:
These types of injuries are usually accompanied by a variety of different symptoms, including swelling, pain, headaches, inflammation, dull pain in surrounding areas, muscle spasms, and lack of mobility.
The goals of chiropractic care for sports injuries are myriad and include reducing inflammation and swelling, combating pain, and improving mobility. At Kouimanis Chiropractic, we strive to get you moving again comfortably by focusing on things like physical therapy, massage, and realignments and adjustments. By alleviating pain for athletes, your body may be able to heal faster after an injury, especially with regular visits.
In addition to physical therapy, massage, and chiropractic therapy to treat your sports injury, your chiropractor may also recommend rest, heat or ice, exercise or rest, relaxation, sleep, and even dietary changes. It is important to think of chiropractic care as part of a holistic approach.
Keep in mind that not only may chiropractic care help to alleviate pain and put your body on the advanced path to healing, but chiropractic care has a number of other benefits too.
Working with a chiropractor is recommended when traditional treatment options have failed and you continue to be in pain despite seeing a regular doctor or a specialist. Chiropractic care is non-invasive and can be a great and effective alternative to surgery or prescription medication. As you search for chiropractors near you, finding someone who is experienced, is licensed, and will take the time to really get to understand your medical history and your current health complication and sports injury is key.
