Sports Injury Treatments
Which treatment might help you heal fastest will be between you and the doctor – all of our customized treatment plans are of course created for each individual patient, according to their needs and goals.
Components of the plan may include:
- Chiropractic care – chiropractic care centers around treatment of the spine, which is the vessel for all direction for the body from the brain. If the spine is out of alignment and uncared for, it can make healing more difficult or take longer.
- Trigger point injections – some sports injuries are primarily centered around the muscle itself, which is one instance where trigger point injections may be recommended. This injection contains an all-natural anti-inflammatory called sarapin, which helps the muscle relax. This offers pain relief and can allow for other forms of therapy to occur, helping to speed up recovery.
