Sports rehabilitation is the process of restoring an athlete to their pre-injury level of function. It can be an important part of the recovery process following a sports injury and can help prevent further injuries from occurring. Chiropractic care with us at Marron Wellness Center in Eatontown, NJ, can be an important part of your sports rehab plan. A chiropractor on our team can treat sports injuries and can provide you with the individualized care you need to recover fully.
Type of Sports Injuries that We Treat
Sports injuries can occur in any part of the body and range from mild to severe. Some common types of sports injuries that we treat include:
Sprains and Strains
Sports such as football, basketball, and soccer can lead to sprains and strains. These injuries occur when the ligaments or muscles are stretched beyond their limits.
A sprain is a stretch or tear in a ligament, while a strain is a stretch or tear in a muscle or tendon. Both types of injuries can cause pain, swelling, and bruising.
A dislocation occurs when the bones in a joint are forced out of alignment. This can happen during contact sports such as football or hockey. Dislocations can be extremely painful and may require surgery to correct.
A fracture is a break in a bone. Fractures can occur from a direct blow to the bone or from repetitive stress on the bone. Common sites for fractures include the wrist, ankle, and collarbone.
Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons, which are the tissues that connect muscles to bones. It can be caused by overuse or repetitive motions. Tendonitis can be extremely painful and may require rest and ice to heal properly.
Chiropractic Techniques for Sports Injury Rehabilitation
A chiropractor can use a variety of techniques to help treat sports injuries. These may include:
Manual manipulation is a technique in which a chiropractor uses their hands to apply specific forces to the joints. This can help reduce pain and improve the range of motion.
Acupuncture uses needles to puncture the different part of the body to help relax muscles and to help release pain relieving endorphins.
K-Laser is used to gives targeted inflammation relief and pain relief.
