Treatment for Sports Injuries
Many of us love to keep active and play sports. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 213 million men, women, and children around the country regularly take part in sports and high-impact fitness activities. For many athletes, injuries are a risk we take when we compete. Knee injuries, broken bones, dislocations, neck strains, back pain, and swollen muscles are just some of the painful conditions that can keep you off the field, especially if you do not seek proper treatment.
If you or your child has been injured while playing sports or working out, Dr. Clayton Clark and the rest of our team at Aloha Wellness in North Central San Antonio, are here to help. When you receive treatment by a chiropractor for a sports injury, you can expect several significant benefits. The recovery time from the injury is often shorter and your overall health and wellness are often improved. How can we help you recover from your sports injury?
Treating Sports Injuries in San Antonio, TX
At Aloha Wellness, our approach to treating sports injuries includes the following:
Treatment: We start with treating the injury itself, not just the pain. This ensures your injury does not lead to chronic problems or even further injuries. While our approach is dependent upon the injury itself, it may include tailored adjustments, joint manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and individualized exercises.
Pain management: Chiropractic care is an alternative to medication when it comes to treating the painful symptoms of an injury. Some of the techniques we use can help you with pain related to sports injuries. These treatments include chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy.
Prevention: Chiropractors can help athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle even before they are injured. We will ensure your spine is properly aligned, which helps your body have a strong foundation of support and protection that is a necessity when playing sports.
Performance Enhancement: If you are an athlete looking to improve your performance, visiting a chiropractor can help. At Aloha Wellness, we will make sure your body has a full range of motion so that no tension or stiffness can hold back how well you play.
Wellness: As part of our treatment, we will discuss your lifestyle and make a few recommendations for changes, such as nutritional advice, that can improve your athletic performance and health.
