If you have a sports injury that’s unlikely to heal with home care treatment, or your injury is more severe, and you want to avoid surgical intervention, our safe, all-natural pain relief treatments are designed to help enhance your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Sports Injury Treatment
Our doctors provide treatment to injured athletes and non-athletes for virtually any sports-related condition, commonly including:
- ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tear
- Patellofemoral syndrome
- Shin splints
- Epicondylitis (also known as “tennis elbow”)
- Groin pull
- Sprained ankle
- Hamstring strain
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Meniscus and cartilage damage
- Rotator cuff injury
- Labral tear
- Shoulder impingement
- Tendon tears or tendonitis
- Nerve damage or pressure on a nerve
Platelet-rich plasma provides a powerful boost to your body’s natural ability to heal itself. But rather than rely on donated tissue, platelet-rich plasma is synthesized right here in the clinic, using your own blood. That makes it a less costly treatment, and it is often just as effective for certain sports injuries.
Trigger Point Injections
When a sports injury primarily involves the muscle, trigger point injections are highly effective. The injection contains sarapin — a natural plant-derived anti-inflammatory — that the doctor precisely injects into a muscle knot, helping it relax. Even with more severe sports injuries, the pain relief resulting from a trigger point injection can sometimes last for weeks. During this time, your treatment plan may include other forms of therapy to help with long-term recovery.
Because the brain communicates with every part of your body via the spinal cord, when the spine is out of alignment, it can be far more difficult to recover from seemingly unrelated injuries. Whether or not your sports injury directly involves your back, a chiropractic adjustment can bring your body into correct balance, making it easier for your injury to heal.
