Sports Injury Treatment
There are a lot of great recreational sports activities to help you get and stay fit. Participating in sports is fun and promotes good health but it also can lead to sports injuries. We at Universal Chiropractic in Mississauga, ON, can provide patients with sports injury treatment that does not involve potentially addictive pain medication, surgical procedures, or injections. If you are healing up from a sports injury, the following gives you a closer look at how our chiropractic treatment could help.
Effective Relief for Knee and Ankle Injuries
A sprained knee or ankle commonly happens when participating in a variety of sports. You might roll your ankle or twist a knee and suffer soft tissue. A chiropractor on our team can provide different non-invasive treatments that can help you to alleviate the pain and swelling while potentially accelerating the healing process.
Soft tissue mobilization can help to ease inflammation and swelling that place painful pressure on nerve endings. Electrostimulation and laser therapy can help to flush toxins from the injured tissue and flood it with red blood cells that carry oxygen to the afflicted area.
Neck and Back Pain
Hard blows are common in sports like ice hockey and football. Even basketball and soccer players might suffer an accidental blow that causes whiplash or other neck and back injuries. Whenever sports injuries cause neck or back pain, soft tissue damage could be at the root. Chiropractic adjustments can help to lessen the effects of injured or slipped spinal discs and soft tissue damage that commonly trigger neck or back pain. Soft tissue mobilization and other treatments can help reduce swelling and pain while promoting natural healing.
Effective Treatment for Shoulder and Arm Injuries
Whether you play tennis, are a bowler, or participate in a variety of other sporting activities, shoulder and arm injuries can occur. Tennis elbow is another injury that affects soft tissue due to the repetitive motion of swinging a tennis racket. Many people also might fall and sprain their wrists while trying to break their falls. A chiropractor on our team can help ease the inflammation, swelling, and pain with soft tissue mobilization, chiropractic adjustments, and other non-invasive procedures so that you can resume enjoying recreational sports.
