Sports Related Injuries and Physical Medicine

As the weather warms up, and both youth and adult recreational leagues gear up for spring and summer games, the risk of sports-related injuries increases. Though exercising is a healthy pursuit, it is not without risk, particularly for amateur athletes; the combination of poor training practices and inadequate experience and gear can result in a high rate of injury. Fortunately, many injuries can be treated through physical medicine practices, in order to get athletes back on their feet and back in the game.

If you do experience an injury, physical medicine practitioners can help with drug-free, non-surgical treatments. Sports chiropractic allows athletes to stay in the game, without medication or surgery. Even before there’s injury or pain, chiropractic adjustments can decrease the chances of injury, by improving blood flow and posture, and increasing range of motion. Physical therapy can help prevent injury, or help athletes reduce disruption caused by injuries.  Physical therapists can design and implement programs to treat and rehabilitate patients with neuromusculoskeletal injuries in order to help them heal and thrive.

With a wide range of disciplines at their disposal, physical medicine professionals are able to help patients recover quickly from sports-related injuries. If you’ve suffered an injury, or if you’re just interested in learning how physical medicine can help you attain a better physical condition and range of motion, in order to prevent injury, we can help. As always, the initial consultation is free, so call to see what we can do for you.
