What to Expect from Chiropractic Treatment for Sports Injuries
Getting the right advice and treatment right from the start is important. Immediate treatment minimises the inflammation and swelling in affected soft tissues and enables the quickest possible return to training and competing with a lower chance of the injury recurring.
At the initial appointment, we will assess and diagnose the cause of your injury. At this point, we will discuss with you the most appropriate course of treatment in your case. Treatment may include a combination of adjustments, soft tissue massage and joint mobilisation. Deep tissue massage, also called sports massage, can help to prevent injury and reduced mobility and restores balance to the musculoskeletal system. Physical benefits include increased circulation muscle elasticity and the breakdown of scar tissue from previous injuries.
We can advise on exercises to ensure that you maintain fitness and exercise the rest of your body while your injury is healing as well as functional and flexibility exercises that you can incorporate into your daily routine afterwards.
As Registered Chiropractors, we are qualified to diagnose the exact nature of your injury. With expert knowledge of particular sports and the injuries most commonly associated with them, we have the experience to enable you to make the best possible recovery in the shortest possible time.
