Chiropractic Care Treatment for Sports Injuries with our Beaverton Chiropractor
For as long as sports have existed, so have sports injuries. No matter how carefully you practice or compete, you may find yourself suffering from an acute or chronic injury. But with some intelligent self-care and skilled treatment at our Beaverton chiropractic clinic, you can get yourself back in the game quickly and safely. Here are some tips for healing from a sports injury, courtesy of your friends at Unity Chiropractic and Wellness Center.
Always get your injury evaluated as soon as possible. Delayed treatment can cause internal scar tissue to form at the injury site, making proper healing more difficult and possibly lead to chronic pain.
Rest, ice, compression and elevation ("RICE") can help reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in an acute injury. Once these symptoms are under control, we can move on to additional treatments.
Get Alignment Problems Fixed
Misaligned joints can be brought back into line through chiropractic adjustments, restoring pain-free range of motion. If you have a general musculoskeletal misalignment or imbalance, spinal adjustments can improve your body symmetry and sports technique, reducing your risk for future sprains and strains.
Eat For Recovery
Your body needs the right raw ingredients to rebuild itself Eat a balanced diet rich in anti-inflammatory nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids.
Go For Physical Therapy
Once you're on the mend, it's time to get your body moving again in a controlled manner that restores it to health. We can recommend exercises to help you strengthen weak muscles, improve your flexibility, and prevent the development of internal scar tissue. Our myofascial therapy techniques can also help by loosening tight tissues and accelerate tissue healing.
