Successful treatments should not only focus on symptoms
Chiropractic care - through the use of safe and natural spinal adjustment techniques, physiotherapy applications, soft tissue mobilization, stretching and exercise programs, diet and nutritional counseling, and extensive bio-mechanical training - focuses on all causes which have lead to the symptoms of pain and tissue injury and do not focus on solely eliminating pain.
According to an article in the June '98 issue of The Physician and Sports Medicine, "Interest in alternative or complementary medicine 'especially chiropractic' is booming... active patients are running to unconventional providers to treat their aches and pains... from chiropractors and acupuncture to magnets and meditation."
Chiropractic care has received much attention in regards to its successful management of sporting injuries. Since the majority of sports injuries are soft tissue in nature and because many of injuries arise from improper body bio-mechanics and improper sporting techniques, chiropractic doctors have become the doctors of choice - from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete.relief, but must address the underlying causes such as muscular imbalances, bio-mechanical deficiencies, improper sporting techniques, and improper conditioning, to name a few.
The most common Sports Injuries are:
- Sprain and Strains (lower back, neck, shoulders)
- Knee Injuries
- Swollen Muscles
- Achilles Tendon Injuries
- Pain along the shin bone
