More than a quick fix for neck or back pain, receiving top-notch chiropractic care for a sports injury helps you get back to your active lifestyle. As a certified chiropractic sports physician, Active Release provider, and Ironman provider, our Crofton chiropractor has the expertise to alleviate pain, treat injuries, and help your whole body heal as quickly and efficiently as possible. Below are some common questions about treating sports injuries answered by our Capitol Rehab of Crofton.
Our chiropractor treats muscle sprains and strains, plantar fasciitis, soft tissue injuries, tennis and golfer’s elbow, shin splints, shoulder injuries, runner’s knee, tendonitis, and neck or back pain caused by the collision and/or concussion.
With a broad range of skills and techniques, our chiropractor can use massage therapy, physical therapy, Graston and Active Release Techniques, spinal alignment, and various therapeutic exercises to alleviate pain, strengthen muscles, and repair damaged tissue. We also provide personalized nutrition and movement plans for athletes.
To prepare muscles and joints for activity, it’s crucial to train well, using a combination of weights and cardio. In addition, proper warm-ups and stretching help prep the body both before and after strenuous exercise.
Recovery time depends on the type and severity of the injury, though most patients feel less pain after their first adjustment. Continued care, involving massage therapy, physical therapy, and chiropractic adjustments, help speed up the process.
Even if the pain is minimal, being assessed by a chiropractor can help you avoid further damage. At Capitol Rehab of Crofton, we treat patients in Bowie, Gambrills, Crofton, and Odenton, and our team of professionals provides quality, friendly service to local athletes and active residents.
