Dominguez Injury Centers
What is Sports Injury Chiropractic?
If you’re an athlete, the numerous demands of participating in sports such as surfing, running, jumping, wrestling, tackling and other activities puts your body through strenuous activity. These activities can result in painful tears, sprains, and strains but seeing a chiropractor can help you when you’ve suffered sports injuries and can also help prevent them. Our experienced chiropractors at Dominguez Injury Centers treat and can help prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulder, knee, and ankle. We specialize in adjustments of the spine, ensuring bones are lined up and balanced, which helps relieve tension in the body. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury. The goal of our chiropractic techniques is to restore or enhance joint function while resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain. Our hands-on therapy is often used to treat neck or back injuries but also relieves pain throughout the joints and muscles in the body.
How does Chiropractic Care Help with Sports Injuries?
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. Our chiropractic care can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Regular visits will promote quicker recovery after games and training as well as better balance and overall performance. To begin, our chiropractors will ask you questions about your health and perform a structural exam of your posture, spine and balance. We will also examine your back, extremities, tendons, ligaments and joints. Using this information, we will be able to determine what treatment would benefit you. The two most common techniques are spinal manipulation and spinal mobilization.
