Sports Chiropractic Approach

  • Your treatment is comparative to that of an athlete, meaning our goals are much more than just symptomatic relief. The sports chiropractic paradigm of rehabilitation is the best method for achieving optimal results.
  • Healing starts with inflammation. The goal of treatment is to decrease swelling and pain. The strategies used include rest, ice, supports, etc.
  • Your tissues will now be going through repair. Various methods of care are necessary to relax and mobilize your healing tissues when inflammation has decreased while simultaneously preventing scar tissue. Next, you must strengthen and stabilize your injured tissues (or “weak link”) to prevent recurrences.
  • Treatments will focus on restoring function. Ways to reduce exposure to harmful external stresses and how to increase functional capacity are the focus of care.
