Sports Injury Rehabilitation
If you are an athlete, you want to always be at peak performance. When you suffer from an injury, you will be out of the game until you recover. You want to get back to training and playing as quickly as possible, and the professionals at Chriocenter in Vernal can help. There are a few sports injury rehabilitation methods available that can get you back in the game faster.
After a sports injury, it is not uncommon for your spine to become misaligned. A chiropractor can perform an adjustment to realign your spine. An adjustment can treat your pain and increase blood flow, which will promote healing.
Massage is a very effective way to treat a sports injury. If you have suffered a sprain or a strain, you shouldn't try to play through the pain. Instead, you need to rest and rehab the injury. Massages can reduce your pain level while working the knots out. It can also increase the blood flow to the area, which promotes faster healing.
Kinesiology Sports Tape
This tape is very stretchy, and it mimics the elasticity of your skin. It is used by chiropractors and physical therapists, to treat sports injuries including IT band syndrome. It can also support weak areas after an injury, and it can retrain muscles that haven't been in use while you were healing. Not only can taping help you recover faster, but it will also get you back into the game safely before you have healed completely.
Stretching is essential before training and working out. It can also be helpful in treating an injury. Between 10 and 14 days after your injury, your chiropractor can use stretching to help speed up the healing process. Static stretching and passive stretching when combined with heat and cold therapy can get you back in the game much sooner.
Plantar fasciitis is a common sports injury, mostly for runners. This condition can be very painful; therefore, you would need to treat the condition before getting back on the track or the open road. Foot orthotics can improve your foot alignment and give you the support that you need for your foot to heal properly. Your chiropractor would perform a feet analysis to choose the correct orthotic. This analysis can also help you choose the best running shoe to prevent this injury from recurring.
