What to Expect When Visiting a Sports Chiropractor
Chiropractic sports medicine includes spinal rehabilitation, exercise therapy, and injury treatment. At Rainier Sports & Spinal Rehab, we have years of experience providing Puyallup residents with natural and effective sports medicine treatments. No matter your sport or your skill level, our sports chiropractor will help you prevent injuries, improve your range of motion, and perform at the highest level you possibly can.
Types of Injuries We Can Treat
At our office, we can treat sprains, strains, tendinitis, bursitis, and other similar issues. We can handle injuries that occur due to repetitive stress on your soft tissues as well as injuries that occur abruptly due to sudden impact. Our chiropractor will evaluate your musculoskeletal system to identify the source of your discomfort and address it through a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs.
How We Help Prevent Injuries
Aside from providing athletes with relief from current injuries, we also help athletes prevent injuries from occurring in the future. Our sports chiropractor will work with you to improve your strength and flexibility. As your body grows stronger and more flexible, your chances of sustaining an injury decrease.
How We Can Treat Injuries
Treatment will vary depending on the type, location, and severity of your injury. Our chiropractor will perform adjustments to return your spine to its natural position, reducing pressure on nerves and soft tissue. Chiropractic adjustments can relieve symptoms such as numbness, weakness, and tingling while reducing pain and improving your body’s ability to heal itself. Our chiropractor may also adjust your cervical spine to aid in neck injury recovery. Corrective exercises to be performed at home will likely be included in your chiropractic care plan. These will enhance the benefits of chiropractic care while strengthening your body and reducing the likelihood of re-injury.
Your injury treatment may also include exercise therapy. Our chiropractor will guide you through exercises that gently stretch your soft tissue. These exercises increase circulation to the area. The additional blood flow means that more nutrients will reach the area, which are necessary for promoting healing. These exercises will improve your flexibility and function in the area.
