Sports Injury Treatments FAQ’s in Chicago
At ReAlign Chiropractic in Chicago, our chiropractor, Dr. Peter Georgiou, helps athletes of all ages and skill levels maintain healthy, strong, flexible, and pain-free bodies from pre-season to post-season. If you've been injured in your sport of choice, or are simply looking for a way to naturally up your game, then consider chiropractic care. It may be just the right addition to your training routine.
What are the most common sports injuries?
Injuries can happen in any sport. Some of the most common types of injuries we evaluate and treat at our Chicago chiropractic clinic include:
• Rotator cuff injury
• Spinal joint subluxation
• Patellofemoral knee syndrome ("runner's knee")
• Medial and lateral epicondylitis ("golfer's elbow" and "tennis elbow")
• Plantar fasciitis
All of these conditions benefit from chiropractic care. Even more serious injuries, such as an ACL or meniscus tear can benefit from chiropractic care in the post-operative and/or sub-acute recovery period.
How can a chiropractor help treat and prevent a sports injury?
Participating in a sport or regular exercise is extremely good for your brain and body, so just because physical activity may increase your risk for injury doesn't mean you should skip it altogether. It's important to understand certain factors, including over- or under-training, poor or ill-fitting equipment, improper warm-up and cool-down, and improper nutrition may increase your risk injury, too.
Fortunately, these factors are controllable, and our Chicago chiropractor can offer practical guidance on ways to control and improve these issues. He offers:
• Postural analysis
• Neuromuscular education
• Corrective exercises
• Lifestyle/nutritional counseling
This is to help you move more safely and efficiently in your sport.
For more immediate and long-lasting relief, Dr. Peter Georgiou and our team also provide non-invasive and drug-free services--including adjustments, spinal decompression, and massage therapy--to reduce inflammation and swelling, relieve pain, restore normal motion, and promote tissue healing. Additionally, our staff offers state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including X-ray imaging, to help identify the root cause of your pain and guide our plan of care for optimal outcomes.
