Our Joint and Sports Injury Treatments
Joint and Sports Injuries are very common for professional athletes, weekend warrior, or anywhere in between. Statistics show that 77% of the world’s population is living with some form of joint and sports injury. It is best to take every precaution to prevent such injuries in the first place. Our advice is to protect yourself by wearing proper equipment, warming up pre- and post-activity. Additionally, getting some professional training in the sport, you like before participation also helps.
However, if you are injured, it is critical to get the injury treated as soon as possible. Many athletes or otherwise, figure the pain will go away. Some are even told to just “walk it off,” or “no pain, no gain.” Well, this mentality needs changing! Pain is a warning sign telling you something is wrong. The no pain no gain is myth put forth by the uninformed. In fact, you gain a lot more when there is no Pain. We Can Help.
Sports Injury Care
By prolonging your care following a joint and sports injury, the injured area will become worse and lead to the formation of scar tissues. In addition to the scar tissue, neglect of a minor injury can easily result in damage and degeneration of muscles, ligaments, and even the joints. In some cases, we have even seen early arthritic joints (arthritis) in the otherwise healthy young adults. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to reverse the damage, and you may end up having chronic pains or worse: permanent dysfunction. So, if you are injured, let our clinical research-based sports team look at your injury. Our methods of care are by non-operative means. In other words, we do not use needles, surgery or pills to get you better. In fact, surgery or injection should become an option, when non-surgical means of care fails.
Also, many make a mistake and seek non-invasive care from surgical centers. In our opinion, this is flawed. Surgical centers are best for surgical intervention. Therefore, it is much wiser to seek the non-operative solution from centers that offer non-invasive methods of care. It is that simple. You don’t go to the fish market to buy stakes, why would you ask for best non-surgical treatment from a surgical center? Chiropractic Specialty Center has non-operative teams of clinical physiotherapists, research-based chiropractors and advanced non-surgical therapy devices for a successful outcome. We have succeeded when others have failed. Let our clinical team help you live a healthy active life again.
Joint and Sports Injury Treatments
However, when seeking treatment for a joint and sports injury, it is important to consider the following: a sports injury usually involves several anatomical structures. Most common structures involved in a sports injury are muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints (and joint capsules), bursa or spinal discs when it affects the spine. Therefore, it is not only important but necessary that you have a trained individuals like our clinical team of chiropractors and physiotherapists to evaluate your condition. Our team of experts will recommend a treatment plan specific to your diagnosis. We will treat every aspect of your injury.
What happens when joint and sports injury treatments are not encompassing?
Well, for one, stability will never be accomplished. If you get physiotherapy only, the muscles and ligaments may get better, but not much else. The pain will eventually subside, but the problem has not addressed adequately. If you see a Chiropractor only, your joint and joint capsules will get treatment, but not much more, and like the first scenario, stability will be going to that Chiropractor to treat the same injury over and over.
