Staying active means participating in exercise programs and indoor and outdoor sports. Unfortunately, the same activities that are designed to help you maintain your weight, build muscle and increase energy levels can also cause various sports injuries. Here at Eulo Chiropractic Center in Sewell, we can help you heal your injuries and get back in the game with our sports injury clinic available for the Washington Township area and surrounding communities of Sewell, Turnersville, Williamstown, Blackwood, and Glassboro.
Common Injuries We Treat at our Sports Injury Clinic
We treat all types of sports injuries at our sports injury clinic from strains and sprains to repetitive
motion injuries, including upper and lower extremity injuries of the musculoskeletal system.
- Ankle Sprains
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Frozen Shoulder
- Hamstring Injuries
- Lower Back Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Runner’s Knee
- Shin Splints
- Tennis Elbow
Sports injuries fall into two categories, including chronic and acute. Injuries like frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, runner’s knee, shin splints and plantar fasciitis are considered chronic repetitive motion injuries. These injuries occur over time due to excessive use of the joints, muscles and tendons, and individuals often feel constant pain that gets worse while participating in activities.
Acute injuries happen suddenly and cause immediate pain, inflammation and swelling. Acute injuries include sprains and strains, lower back and neck pain and ankle sprains. If you feel sudden pain or hear popping, grinding or other noises, you should stop the activity and contact our sports injury clinic for treatment.
Sports Chiropractic Treatments at our Clinic
Here at our sports chiropractic clinic, we offer a variety of non-invasive, holistic treatment options that are designed to work with your body’s natural healing abilities to speed recovery times and reduce pain and inflammation. A few of our sports injury treatments include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and health and wellness care.
Chiropractic adjustments are the foundation of many of our treatment plans. Manual adjustments are designed to help realign your spine and extremity joints into their proper positions. When the joints of the body become misaligned, they are more prone to moving improperly. This increases the risk of joint injuries, back pain and inflammation of the nerves, ligaments, muscles and soft tissues.
Massage therapy is very important when it comes to healing sports injuries. Localized and full body sports massages can help release lactic acid from the muscles, which causes moderate to severe pain and restricted movement after strenuous exercise. It also helps relieve pain due to tight spots and knots in the muscles, and can help chiropractic adjustments last longer, which gives your body more time to heal.
Our health and wellness program is designed to get you back on your feet faster by correcting unhealthy eating habits, increasing the number of fruits and vegetables in your diet and helping you avoid reinjuries and new injuries while performing your daily activities and participating in sports and recreational activities.
