HOW CHIROPRACTORS TREAT SPORTS INJURY
Chiropractic can treat and prevent injury by adjusting the spine as well as extremity joints like shoulders, elbows, wrist, hips, knees and feet. By keeping joints, especially the spine, functioning optimally; this in turn relieves tension & stress throughout the body. This provides proper joint mechanics, balanced muscle tone and a boastful recovery process. Whether the injury is to a joint or soft tissue; chiropractors also use therapies such as electrostimulation, ultrasound, ice/heat and cold laser to manage pain, promote tissue repair and reduce inflammation.
