One of the drawbacks of playing sports is the risk of injury. Sports injuries can leave you with a painful neck, shoulder, or back that keeps you sidelined for weeks. At ChiroCare in North Greenbush, NY, we provide chiropractic treatments for sports injuries to relieve pain and expedite your recovery. Dr. Stone has gathered a few questions people ask about chiropractic treatment for sports injuries.
What are some of the sports injuries you treat?
We have experience treating all manner of sports injuries from whiplash to dislocated bones and joints, ligament tears, muscle strains, runner’s knee, tennis and golfer’s elbow, herniated discs, and more. If you are feeling the aches and pains of a sports injury, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Stone for a diagnosis and treatment.
Should I see a chiropractor or my physician for sports injury treatment?
At ChiroCare, we specialize in treating injuries involving the musculoskeletal system. This system includes the muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. We will conduct a thorough evaluation that may include x-rays to determine the type of injury that you sustained and the severity. This evaluation will determine if you can benefit from chiropractic care or need some other form of treatment.
How does a chiropractor treat sports injuries?
After your comprehensive evaluation of your condition, Dr. Stone will create a customized treatment plan to provide pain relief and support the healing process. Our treatments involve a variety of chiropractic techniques and other therapies to help your body heal naturally. Chiropractic adjustments can realign your spine to relieve pressure from the joints, muscles, and nerves.
Restoring spinal mechanics will relieve your pain and improve spinal function. Soft tissue massage is used to ease muscle pain and stimulate blood flow to the injured tissues so they can heal quicker. We may also recommend rehab exercises to strengthen the core muscles and restore pain-free mobility.
How long will my treatment plan be?
That depends a great deal on your diagnosis. Some people require only a few treatments to put them on the road to recovery. Others require more time to help their body fully heal. Pain relief, however, can often be felt after the first treatment. Dr. Denison Stone will work with you to support the recovery process every step of the way.
