Sports Injuries

Chiropractic for Sports Injuries

If you are a serious athlete or just a “weekend warrior” you probably are going to get injured at some point.

Your treatment options through traditional medicine are often very limited. If your injury does not need surgery, you are given medication, physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises until your body heals itself to the best of its ability. Often, your body doesn’t have the ability to heal itself back to the way it was before. This is why athletes suffer from poor performance after injuries and sometimes are forced into retirement early. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can heal faster and better than the most doctors would have you believe. If you have been treated with drugs, surgery or physical therapy you need to ask yourself some questions.

  • Can I get back to my sport faster than I have been told ?
  • Is there more that can be done to get me healthy ?
  • Why do I keep getting injured over and over again ?
  • Can the injury be healed back to the way it was before, or better ?
  • Can my performance level meet or exceed what it was before the injury ?
  • Is there a way to get my injuries addressed without drugs ?
  • Can you test shoes, equipment and supports to see if they are helping me perform at my maximum ?
  • Are there better ways to prevent this from happening again ?
  • The doctors told me I can’t play anymore, is there a way I still could ?
