Chiropractic Sports Medicine
California is a sports-enthusiast’s paradise with mountains to the north and east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and thousands of miles of trails crisscrossing deserts, forests, and every sort of wilderness in between. With all this, sports and active, outdoor lifestyles are enjoyed by many. It also creates a high need for a chiropractor experienced in treating sports related injuries.
All too often those injured think that the only way to treat injuries are traditional treatments, surgery, or worse – prolonged use of pain killers. That’s not the case. Chiropractic sports medicine is a successful alternative which can be used to treat many sports related injuries. Chiropractic services are an acknowledged and in-demand part of sports therapy, rehabilitation, and training practices worldwide.
Major organizations such as the NFL and U.S. Olympics have chiropractors as an integral part of their teams. In addition, international events like the Ironman Triathlon and both the Boston and New York Marathon’s employ sports chiropractors to heal shin splints, sprained ankles, pulled muscles and more.
Chiropractic Sports Medicine for More than Back Pain
Modern chiropractic care is a whole body approach to healing. Through joint and soft tissue alignment, chiropractors can heal more than just sore backs. In fact, injuries that typically waylay athletes and require immobilization can heal quicker when certified chiropractors intervene.
Kwait Chiropractic of Marin uses sports medicine to heal:
- Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
- Pulled muscles
- Sprained ankles
- Tennis elbow
- Joint inflammation
- Frozen shoulders
- Plantar Fasciitis (overextension of the muscle along the bottom of the foot)
- Shin splints (for which the Graston Technique® is a recommended treatment)
- Piriformis Syndrome (a type of sciatica)
- And much more
Often times pain and swelling can be eliminated within just a few visits. What’s more, proper chiropractic sports medicine isn’t just about healing wounds.
Chiropractic maintenance can help athletes – professional or otherwise – perform at the top of their game. By keeping the body in alignment, weeding out any harmful chronic motion habits, and fixing small problems before they become big ones, sports chiropractic care can help prevent injuries as well.
