Non-Invasive, Natural Healing
Staying active during the sports season is a priority for most athletes. Chiropractic care addresses sports injuries with gentle, non-invasive techniques. At Choice Chiropractic, we treat sports injuries with many different forms of spinal adjustment, including: Diversified Technique, Logan Basic Technique, Activator Technique and Thompson Technique. We also use the following techniques to treat sports injuries:
- Therapeutic stretches: Engaging in therapeutic stretches and exercises can build muscle strength and enhance the healing power of spinal adjustment.
- Prevention advice: Proper training and technique is the key to preventing future sports injuries. We work with patients to show them how to prepare their muscles for competitions. We also show patients how to exercise properly before and after competitions, to prevent muscle strain.
- Anti-inflammatory diet: Inflammation is a common problem with sports injuries. We help our patients by telling them which foods can reduce inflammation and help injuries heal.
