Common Sports Injury Treatment and Physical Therapy
One of the most commonly provided forms of chiropractic care for sports injuries is massage therapy. Sports injuries usually result in soft tissue damage that causes the majority of the pain.
Massage therapy helps to soothe and ease inflammation and swelling that create pain. It helps to stretch and loosen the affected soft tissue and improve your range of motion.
Electrostimulation is another commonly used therapy that helps ease the inflammation and swelling that cause pain. Electrostimulation also helps to flood the injured tissue with red blood cells that carry oxygen and iron to your injured tissue to accelerate the healing process.
A spinal adjustment often helps to align your spine and take pressure off spinal discs and connective tissue that become irritated, inflamed, and painful. Most people also benefit from physical therapy that helps to strengthen injuries and increase the range of motion.
