Common Sports-Related Conditions and Treatments Provided by Your Sarasota Chiropractor
We treat most sports-related injuries, from strains and sprains to ankle, elbow, shoulder, and wrist injuries. Soft tissue injuries can be difficult to treat as these areas of the body are prone to re-injury and lingering pain and discomfort. By utilizing the methods outlined below, in addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments, we can effectively treat your injuries. Chiropractic care is focused on treating the root causes of injuries which is much more effective than simply masking the symptoms that the injury causes. If you are suffering from a sports-related injury we are here to help you get back to peak performance!
If you have a soft tissue injury caused by sports or repetitive motions, our chiropractic methods are effective in correcting the problem:
- Graston Technique - utilizing stainless steel instruments, we can help fix connective tissue issues and work to break up accumulated scar tissue. This technique helps to identify adhesions in the tendons and muscles and break them up to relieve pain and inflammation.
- Kinesio Taping - this method both helps to support your injury while also allowing your body to completely and fully heal. The tape provides additional support to the affected area which helps to prevent re-injury and also reduce inflammation and swelling.
- Active Release Technique (ART) - this soft tissue massage technique helps to break up the scar tissue that can accumulate after years of sports participation and activity. It also works to release any trapped nerves, and increase your range of motion while decreasing any pain or discomfort.
- Customized Strengthening Exercises - once your body is on the road to recovery, we can work with you to establish an exercise regimen for you to do at home. These targeted strengthening routines can help to minimize the risk of re-injury and lingering issues from the injury.
