Recover from Sports Injuries with Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Cupping, Acupressure, Massage
Athletes understand the demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent such future injuries.
Sports Injuries Cause Pain and Limit Performance
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. These conditions are often a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury such as the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
Multi-Faceted Approach To Help Athletes Recover
Our West Orange Chiropractor, Dr. Carmine Allonardo, DC, and his team of medical professionals including acupuncturists, massage therapists and physical therapists help both amateur and professional athletes get back to their active lifestyles quickly and safely.
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Allonardo treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decrease inflammation and allow the nervous system to function optimally. Vital nutrients, water and blood can also travel throughout the body easily when the spine is aligned. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.
