Our sports injury chiropractor is an expert in administering natural sports medicine that helps your body heal, so you can get back in action. Here’s a closer look at the more common types of sports injury treatment that our chiropractor often provides for our patients.
If you have a bad sprain, rotator cuff injury, or one or more of the many other common sports injuries, massage therapy helps relieve the pain and encourage healing. Our chiropractor can target the swelling and inflammation that places pressure on nerve endings. Massage therapy can naturally reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain.
Electrostimulation is a therapeutic technique that involves the application of electrical currents to stimulate nerves and muscles. It is commonly used in various medical and rehabilitation settings to manage pain, improve muscle strength, and aid in recovery.
Our chiropractor may use electrostimulation on soft tissue to flush away toxins. As the toxins flow out of your injury area, red blood cells replace them and deliver beneficial oxygen and iron to your injured area. Electrostimulation helps your body heal faster and causes no pain or discomfort.
Oxygen therapy is an excellent complement to electrostimulation and enables many sports medicine practitioners to treat sports injuries that affect soft tissue effectively. Oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that involves the administration of supplemental oxygen to individuals with breathing difficulties or low blood oxygen levels. It is commonly used to support various medical conditions and aid in the recovery process.
This treatment requires the patient to spend several minutes inside a hyperbaric chamber that contains elevated levels of oxygen. These elevated oxygen levels help expel toxins from injured soft tissue, while encouraging beneficial body fluids to replace them and promote natural healing.
Spinal Adjustments and Decompression
Many sports injuries affect the neck and spine and cause extreme pain. One of the many ways our chiropractor can help is with a spinal adjustment that properly aligns the spine and relieves any pressure on injured, slipped, or swollen spinal discs. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine to ease pressure on spinal discs, which might help naturally enhance healing while reducing back pain.
