For many athletes and fitness enthusiasts, injuries are simply a part of playing the game, with sprains, strains, knee injuries, swollen muscles, broken bones, and dislocations topping the list of what often puts athletes on the sidelines. The goal for many of these injured athletes, professional or not, is getting back to active status as quickly and safely as possible. Contact Dr. Circolone Apple Chiropractic Orthopedics & Rehab if you are dealing with a sports injury and live in or around Chattanooga or Sales Creek.

How a Chiropractor Helps Sports Injuries

There are many ways a chiropractor can be a partner in the journey back to the field, court, or track if you have suffered from a sports injury. At Apple Chiropractic Orthopedics & Rehab, Dr. Circolone and our team are dedicated to helping athletes struggling with injuries. Some of the common injuries that we treat include soft tissue injuries, shoulder injuries, sprains and strains, and runner’s knee. Our treatments provide several benefits:

  • Pain management: Chiropractic care is an effective alternative to medication when it comes to treating the painful symptoms of an injury.
  • Treating the source: While pain management is an important part of treating a sports injury, we also concentrate on treating the source itself to prevent further injuries. Our therapies are dependent on the injury itself and may include joint manipulation, mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and individualized exercises.
  • Improved range of motion: Chiropractors help with injuries that lead to stiffness, tension, and pain in the joints that can prevent you from performing at your highest level.
  • Lifestyle advice: As part of our treatment to benefit your overall health and wellness, we will also look at your lifestyle, not just your athletic pursuits. Dr. Circolone will make recommendations for changes to improve your athletic performance and health.

Helping Athletes Before They Are Injured

Chiropractors help athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle even before they are injured. As part of your chiropractic care, we will examine the alignment of your spine. When your spine is properly aligned it provides a strong foundation of support and protection for your body, which is important when playing sports. The recovery process for an injury is often shorter and the pain is reduced if an injury occurs to an athlete that receives frequent chiropractic care. Contact our team today to learn more about how we can help you on and off the field.
