Sports and Exercise are a great way to stay healthy, but often include risks. Preventative healthcare for potential injury can help your body be prepared for strenuous activity. Muscle strengthening through chiropractic care and physical therapy modalities are a great way to build your body's ability to handle high levels of physical activity.
Often excessive training or inappropriate training methods can be a cause of injury, but structural abnormalities and muscle imbalance or weakness can be contributing factors also. Common sports-related injuries are caused by traumatic force to a joint in motion causing hyperextension or hyperflexion.
Glass City Spine & Rehab Chiropractors have achieved additional training specifically for sport-related injuries to assess, diagnose and manage as part of their core competencies. We complete a comprehensive history and physical examination, to determine the cause of pain and dysfunction as well as recommend an appropriate treatment plan of management. Conservative care offered by our chiropractors, dependent on the injury and mechanism, may include joint manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue therapies, adjunct modalities, rehabilitation and individualized exercises and lifestyle advice to restore proper function, enhance healing of damaged tissue and reduce pain and support overall health & wellness for increased athletic performance.
