When you have an injury that is sports related, having a sports chiropractor provide treatment can get you back to playing without invasive treatments and drugs. Dr. Luciann Moyher at Dallas Chiropractic in Dallas, GA has the specialized knowledge and experience to provide the necessary services.
Chiropractic care treats the body as a whole, understanding that when one part is not functioning well because of injury or illness, the whole body suffers. What athletes like about chiropractic care is the holistic approach that avoids drugs and surgery where possible and gets them back to playing sooner. Whether you're a weekend warrior or a pro, help is waiting. In addition, a sports chiropractor can help you to avoid injuries.
After a thorough evaluation to check for vertebrae out of alignment, Dr. Moyher will provide a chiropractic adjustment. Adjustments can be to the mid, lumbar, or cervical spine depending on where the misalignment is. Adjustments may be manual or instrument-assisted depending on what needs to happen to get the patient back to optimal health and wellness while addressing any pain they may be suffering.
Sports massage is perfect for athletes. It can be used before an activity to help to cut down on the potential for injury. A vigorous massage like a Swedish massage increases circulation and gets the muscles ready for the upcoming exercise. After sports, massages are designed to help the muscles relax and ease any soreness. If there are injuries, trigger points may need to be released and pain relieved.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to vibrate and heat the tissues. It increases blood flow and reduces inflammation. It alleviates pain, stiffness, and muscle spasms while promoting healing and improving the range of motion.
Electric muscle stimulation
Electric muscle stimulation uses electric current at a low level to cause the muscles to contract. It promotes relaxation in the muscles by tiring them out.
Cold laser therapy
Low levels of light energy are used in cold laser therapy to help with pain relief and healing. It accelerates healing by prompting the body to use stored ATP and can also dilate blood vessels for improved blood flow.
Most athletes know to use cold therapy at home for a sore muscle or a sprain. It reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, and pain and is an important part of sports rehabilitation.
