How Sports Therapy Can Help Keep You in Tiptop Shape

When the warning light on the dashboard of your car lights up, you don’t ignore it until your car breaks down (at least we hope you don’t). You head to the mechanic to get it fixed. Your body sends you similar warning signals, especially if you’re an athlete.

Tweaks, aches, and pains may be annoying at first but can lead to an injury that takes you out of play for the season. Ignoring these warning signals can lead to a full-on breakdown, but if you visit us at Jochen Chiropractic and Wellness for sports therapy, you can stay healthy, prevent injury, and optimize your athletic performance.

Chiropractic sports therapy keeps you in tiptop shape. Because chiropractic focuses on musculoskeletal health, it’s the perfect treatment for athletes to prevent injuries and heal them if they do occur. There’s a reason professional sports teams — including those in the NFL and NBA — have relationships with chiropractors and regularly refer athletes.

About sports therapy

At Jochen Chiropractic and Wellness, we take a multidimensional approach to treatment. Acupuncture, chiropractic manipulations, massage therapy, cold laser treatments, cupping, and physical therapy strengthening exercises combine to help you optimize how your body functions, and this translates to your game.

As an athlete, you put a lot of demands on your body and have different nutritional needs than the average person. Sports therapy includes nutrition therapy, which helps you devise an eating plan that gets you the nutrients your body requires to play at your best and heal should you suffer an unavoidable injury.

Prevention of injury

Many sports injuries occur over time. Issues such as tendonitis, bursitis, and low back pain can result from repetitively moving inefficiently. You may succeed in your sport with these inefficient movements for a while, but after repeated irritation, your body responds with pain or diminished performance (and often both).

Chiropractic manipulation can ensure your body is in the best alignment possible for your joints, nerves, and spine to work efficiently. This makes every movement on the field, track, pitch, or court more precise and effective.

Plus, if you find you have an area that you continually reinjure, it may be due to inefficient movement patterns. By healing the underlying cause your injury with chiropractic manipulations, massage, and other therapies, you can prevent the injury cycle.

Types of injuries treated

You can’t avoid every injury. That’s when sports therapy can help you get back to play quickly. The types of injuries our team addresses include:

Along with chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, and acupuncture, we can treat these injuries with physical therapy exercises, nutrition recommendations, and supplements.

Sports therapy at our office doesn’t mean drug therapy or surgery. You heal naturally and effectively so you can return to your game stronger and more effective than ever.
