Chiropractic Treatments for sports-related Injuries

At ChiropracticUSA, our sports chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan to address your specific injury or fitness goals. Whether you’re recovering after a workout or training for your next event, you can benefit from some of the following chiropractic services:

 

  • Hot and Cold Therapy: Hot and cold therapy is beneficial for minimizing inflammation and reducing pain after an acute sports injury. The treatment involves applying a cold pad to the affected area for a prescribed amount of time, then switching to a heat wrap to boost blood flow and flood the area with nutrients.

 

  • Spinal Manipulation: During spinal manipulation therapy, your doctor uses manual techniques or activator tools to apply a controlled, forceful thrust to the spine to move it beyond its normal range of motion. This can improve alignment and reduce pressure on nerves, muscles, and joints for pain relief.

 

  • Spinal Decompression: Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy used to reduce pressure between the vertebrae and spinal discs. This can reduce back and neck pain. 

 

  • Soft Tissue Manipulation:Soft tissue manipulation applies targeted pressure and movement to affected muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This releases tension, breaks up scar tissue, and improves blood flow, facilitating quicker healing and reduced inflammation. The result is enhanced mobility and a faster return to athletic activity.
