Sports Injury Treatments from Idaho Falls Chiropractor to Get You Back in the Game
Sports can be a fun and effective way to stay in shape, but they can also cause a number of injuries. While you may be sidelined for some time, Spine Align Chiropractic can design a sports injury treatment program to specifically fit your needs. Our Idaho Falls chiropractors Dr. Todd L. Reese and Dr. Devin P. Scoresby can combine a number of treatment methods to most effectively restore your body to its proper alignment and functioning. As a former track-team decathlete who continues to coach a track team, Dr. Scoresby is particularly aware of the types of injuries sports can create and the techniques that can help them heal.
Treatment for Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Headaches and Migraines from Concussion and Other Injuries
Some of the most common sports injuries include sprains, strains and muscle tears as well as whiplash. The repetitive movements and sudden twists and turns can lead to the former, while a sudden or abrupt jolt can lead to the latter. Concussion is another common injury typically caused by a blow to the head. A smattering of symptoms can include neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, and headaches and migraines. Whiplash or a concussion can be especially tricky because the symptoms are not always obvious or immediate, but can surface weeks later, long after the direct cause of the sports injury may have been forgotten. A concussion can be especially damaging, leading to a brain injury if the brain strikes the inner portion of the skull.
Our chiropractor tailors our treatments to each specific sports injury, and treatment plans can include a number of techniques to help correct damage and expedite healing. Chiropractic adjustments may be helpful if the injury involves a misalignment of the spine, which can often result in pinched nerves, causing back, neck, and shoulder pain. Our Idaho Falls chiropractors use a technique known as Chiropractic Bio-Physics, or CBP, which involves three phases of treatment: exercises, adjustments, and corrective traction. We can supplement our spinal adjustments with extremity adjustment, realigning the hips, ankles, shoulders, arms, knees, or other areas that may have been thrown off-kilter.
Laser therapy is another treatment we offer for sports injury as well as a number of other conditions. Our Idaho Falls chiropractor specifically uses the advanced technology of K-Laser therapy, which employs near-infrared and red wavelengths for their therapeutic benefits. The wavelengths interact with cells by prompting the production of cellular energy. The cellular energy enhances the cell’s health and function and results in a reduction of pain, swelling, stiffness, spasms, and healing time.
Whether your sports injury has resulted in immediate back, neck, and shoulder pain, a trip to our Idaho Falls chiropractic clinic can help determine if any underlying damage has been done. Our chiropractic care can help correct that damage before it develops into something more severe and get you quickly back into the game.
