Whether you play sports recreationally or are a competitive athlete, it's likely that you'll encounter a sports injury at some point in your life. While these injuries can be frustrating and painful, recovery is possible. Chiropractic care is a holistic health care option that allows you to work with your body's natural ability to heal, using drug free methods of restoring your body to its injury free state. At South Lake Wellness & Injury Center in Clermont, our chiropractor is here to help you get back in the game.
Common Sports Injuries
While sports injuries are common, that doesn't mean they aren't serious. Some of the sports injuries treated regularly in our office include tennis elbow, sprains/ strains, sciatica, hip flexor problems, pulled muscles, patellofemoral syndrome, and shin splints. No matter what your sports injury, we're here to help you find relief and recovery in a natural, healthy way.
Why Treatment Matters
Many people who enjoy sports find that old sports injuries go away for a time, and then return later down the road. When an injury isn't properly healed, the body can use other muscles, joints, and movement patterns to compensate for the injury. While this will relieve the pain for a time, it sets the body up to be re-injured. It can also leave the body more vulnerable to other types of injury.
Sports Injury Treatment from a Chiropractor
A chiropractor will work with you to choose treatment modalities that are drug free, and work with your body's ability to heal itself. When you come in for your first appointment, we'll talk with you about your injury, health history, and any other health concerns you may have. From there, we'll develop a unique treatment plan for you. We'll employ different healing modalities specific to your needs, which may include spinal adjustment, massage, corrective exercise, lifestyle changes, hot/cold therapy, and more. At each appointment, we'll check in with you to see how your healing is progressing, making changes to your plan as needed.
