Athletes put their bodies through a lot, and the results can include pain and injuries as well as triumphant achievements. Whether you’re a casual player or a dedicated pro, you’re going to need help getting past that debilitating sports injury. Here at Horbach Chiropractic, we offer non-invasive sports injury treatment and rehabilitation techniques that can help you repair your body, conquer pain without drugs, and protect yourself against future hazards in your sport of choice.
Sports Injuries Treated by Our Chiropractor
Acute and chronic injuries are a painful fact of life when you’re an athlete. Some of these injuries are agonizing sudden events such as dislocated joints, herniated discs, acute sprains and strains, and even whiplash. Other sports injuries may be somewhat longer in the making — but no less debilitating. Soft tissue injuries and inflammatory condition may develop after the tissues suffer repeated micro-tears in the fibers. This inflammatory damage contributes to such specific conditions as tennis elbow, golf elbow, plantar fasciitis (which afflicts athletes who are constantly on their feet), and carpal tunnel syndrome (which can trouble any athlete who constantly grips a racket or club).
Sometimes an underlying spinal misalignment can make you more vulnerable to sports injuries. This kind of problem can throw your body off balance, producing unnatural strain and opening the door to acute or chronic damage. A misalignment or instability in an extremity joint can also cause injuries ranging from runner’s knee to shoulder bursitis.
Therapeutic Techniques at Our Trevor Clinic
Horbach Chiropractic can design a customized sports therapy program to help you cope with your specific sports injury or sports wellness challenge. In addition to chiropractic adjustments that restore joint components to their correct alignment, our Trevor chiropractor may recommend a mix of techniques such as:
- Graston Technique – This instrument-based technique allows us to locate and treat scar tissue beneath the skin.
- Kinesio Taping – This unique taping method supports injured muscles, enhances circulation, and eases pain/swelling.
- Active Release Technique – ART releases deep tissues to improve their pain-free mobility.
- Strengthening Exercises – Our combination of exercises and Power Plate therapy can help you rehabilitate more quickly.
