Whether you played a sport when you were younger or are out there playing right now, an injury from the past (or present) can take you out of the game for a significant period of time. Recovering from a sports injury is a very important step toward continued activity in the future. The team at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center can help diagnose a sports injury and develop an individualized treatment plan that will help you recover safely.
Athletes push their bodies very hard each season. In fact, they are known to push their own natural physical limits in an attempt to reach a personal or team goal. Soccer, football, tennis, basketball and running can cause unique sports injuries that if left untreated, can have a negative effect on overall performance. It is extremely important to diagnose and treat a sports injury quickly and correctly so that the athlete can resume their sport in a healthy way.
Sports Injury Treatment And Prevention
Over the counter and prescription pain medications only treat the symptoms of an injury–not the cause. A chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, nutritional counseling and/or specific rehabilitation exercises are non-invasive and can actually help your body heal so that it is not as vulnerable to future injury.
In addition to helping you diagnose and recover from a sports injury, our team can also help you prevent injuries. Sports medicine can be used to treat acute or chronic injuries as well as strengthen your body so that you are less likely to succumb to an injury. For example, strengthening your core muscles can help you with virtually any sport that you want to play. We can demonstrate exercises that are specifically designed to help you achieve your performance goals. Our staff listens closely to you to understand your injury and your concerns and we will develop an individualized treatment plan that you can follow from throughout your recovery and beyond. In fact, we often recommend that you continue the exercises we provide for you well after your pain has lessened.
