Sports Injury Treatment at Life Chiropractic
Repetitive motion injuries including tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are some of the most common sports injuries that we treat at Life Chiropractic. Over time, a repetitive motion like swinging a golf club or tennis club can cause inflammation and chronic pain. Many patients with repetitive motion injuries also have an undiagnosed spinal misalignment. This spinal misalignment is a contributing factor for the improper motion, aggravating a patient’s pain. Chiropractic adjustments are essential to correcting the spinal misalignment and restoring proper motion to the body. Physiotherapy treatments, such as hot and cold therapy, help to minimize swelling and support recovery.
Runner’s knee is a common sports injury, especially for individuals who are training for a marathon or triathlon. Runner’s knee can also affect individuals who play high-impact sports like soccer. Running long distances can damage the nerves and connective tissue around the knee. At Life Chiropractic, we treat runner’s knee with a combination of physiotherapy and corrective care exercises. Physiotherapy helps reduce internal inflammation and minimize swelling around the knee joint. Our corrective exercises strengthen the soft tissues responsible for stabilizing the knee. Our goal with treatment is not only to relieve pain, but also help patients resume the active lifestyle they love.
Herniated or slipped discs are also common among active individuals. A slip and fall while running or a collision while playing contact sports can easily cause a spinal misalignment. Chiropractic adjustments relieve nerve compression and bring proper alignment back to the spine for long-lasting pain relief.
When a sports injury strikes, prompt care is essential to a successful recovery. Delaying treatment increases the risk for additional injury. While medication is able to provide temporary pain relief, drugs alone are not a permanent solution for sports injury-related pain. A combination of chiropractic care and physiotherapy delivers the best results for sports injury patients. Chiropractic care restores proper alignment to the spine, correcting the root cause for pain and reducing the risk for future injury. Physiotherapy treatments such as cryotherapy, electrical stimulation and moist heat therapy are effective techniques for reducing swelling and supporting the body’s natural healing process.
