How Our Sports Injury Chiropractor Can Help
If you live in the Austin, TX area and have sustained a sports injury, our chiropractor can help. When you are engaged in sports or any other kinds of physical activities, you risk damaging your tendons, joints, bones, and muscles. You also risk injuring certain parts of your body like your legs, arms, elbows, or knees. Injuries can also occur to the back, neck, and head as well.
Normally these types of sports injuries happen when you overexert your body or the sport involves repetitive movements. Sports injuries can cause many symptoms including pain, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, and swelling. Thankfully, however, there are many types of noninvasive and drug-free sport treatment options that a chiropractor can provide.
Treatment Offered by Our Chiropractor
The type of sports injury treatment our chiropractor uses largely depends on the injury. For an injured disc or a pulled muscle, our chiropractor would most likely perform a spinal adjustment. This type of treatment involves applying pressure and movement to a specific part of the spine in order to get it realigned. Doing this allows the blood to flow more optimally to the injured area. An alignment can also eliminate pressure on the nerves and muscles from the discs or vertebrae.
Other types of treatment we may recommend include the use of splints, hot/cold therapy, and exercise therapy. A splint may be necessary so that that injured part of your body can stay in place while you heal. In order to help reduce pain and inflammation caused by the injury, another type of treatment we may recommend is hot/cold therapy. Exercise therapy consists of our chiropractor guiding you through specific exercises that are designed to help relieve pain. These types of exercises can also aid in restoring your range of motion and bodily function of the injured area. Before starting any kind of sports treatment, our chiropractor will start with a comprehensive history, orthopedic, neurological and functional exam.
