Chiropractic Care for the Injured Athlete
By Donna Stark
If you are an athlete, odds are you have dealt with a sports-related injury at some point or another, and the odds are even greater that you couldn't wait to get back to doing what you love. I think we have all been in that position. We have all wanted to rush our recovery so we could get back into the game as soon as possible, and in doing so, many of us have failed to give our bodies the time for proper healing to occur. If you are coming off the heels of a sports-related injury, you may want to slow down and consider seeing your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. Here's why.
Unmasking the Problem
It seems like the easiest way to treat an injury is to cover up its symptoms with painkillers, but we all know how that ends, don't we? Using over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers will never provide true healing and will only delay the inevitable ... more pain, more problems, and more hassle down the road. Your best bet would be to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic as soon as possible because if you really want to get back to your normal routine, the root cause of your pain has to be addressed and that's exactly what they will do!
Shortening the Recovery Period
Your chiropractors like to be as active as you are and they understand the desire to get back into the game, so when you come in to see them, you will leave with a customized treatment plan designed for your specific needs. They will never apply a "cookie-cutter" approach to your specific issue, so you can rest assured knowing that the healing process will begin immediately. Quick relief and long-lasting results. When the source of the issue is identified and targeted, when inflammation and tension are reduced, and when circulation is improved for increased healing, what else would you expect?
Decreasing the Risk
In addition to relieving the pain and discomfort you are feeling, chiropractic care will also help to improve balance, coordination, range of motion, and flexibility. It can also help restore normal joint function and reduce muscle tension and stiffness in the affected area. All in all, it helps to decrease the risk of future injuries, pain, and discomfort.
