The most common sports injuries involve strains and sprains and repetitive motion injuries to the muscles, neck, back and extremities. Here at Eulo Chiropractic Center, we offer comprehensive treatment programs to reduce pain and heal sports injuries naturally for Washington Township area and surrounding communities of Sewell, Turnersville, Williamstown, Blackwood, and Glassboro, NJ.
Sports Injury Treatment Process
Our sports injury treatment process starts with a thorough physical examination and a medical history. Our chiropractor will examine your areas of pain and ask about the severity and longevity of the pain as well as when it first started and how it limits your movement or affects you daily.
Pain Management for Muscle and Neck Injuries
Lowering your pain and providing pain management services is a priority when it comes to your treating your muscle, neck and sports injuries. We accomplish this by offering treatments that reduce inflammation, realign joints and promote circulation, including chiropractic adjustments and active rehabilitation exercises.
Chiropractic adjustments are very effective at lowering the pain of neck, back and extremity joint injuries as well as tennis elbow and carpal tunnel. They help take the pressure off nerves, ligaments and surrounding muscles, reduce inflammation and promote proper function of the spine and extremity joints.
Active rehabilitation exercises are great for promoting circulation throughout the body, reducing general and specific muscle pain and knots and for making chiropractic adjustments more comfortable.
Most people can expect their overall pain to decrease within a few weeks to a couple months.
Healing Sports Injuries, including Sprains and Strains
After your pain and inflammation has been reduced, we will focus on healing your injuries and reducing your pain and increasing your strength and range of motion permanently. The human body is remarkable in the fact that it tries to heal itself, and when it is given the correct treatment, it is very effective at healing all types of sports injuries, including neck, back and muscles injuries as well as sprains and strains.
Chiropractic adjustments, active rehabilitation exercises and physical rehabilitation are designed to work with your body to speed recovery times. During this treatment phase, chiropractic adjustments will be used to keep your spine and extremity joints properly aligned. Active rehabilitation exercises are used to further reduce pain and improve range of motion of the injured areas, and physical therapy or rehabilitation is used to strength muscles and improve coordination and flexibility. As you become stronger, you will need fewer adjustments because your muscles will properly support your spine, and your body will become accustomed to the correct position of your joints.
Treatment length depends on the severity of your sports injury.
Preventing Future Muscle injuries and Sprains and Strains
After treatment, many individuals worry about future neck and muscles injuries and sprains and strains. We offer a post-treatment check-up program to monitor your health and reduce your chances of future injuries. This program typically involves receiving periodic adjustments and active rehabilitation exercises. For more information visit the sports injury page.
