When you need a sports injury chiropractor, Dr. Anthony Yarbrough of Yarbrough Chiropractic in North Aurora, IL has the experience and treatments that you need. It doesn't matter if you are a professional or an amateur, when it comes to recovery from a sports injury, what you want is relief and to get back to playing.
Getting a sports massage before performing can help to decrease the potential for injuries. Think of it as a muscle warm up. When you are sore after a workout or from overuse of your muscles, a sports massage will concentrate on the area that is sore, whether it is your shoulder after golf or your hamstring from running. Several types of sports massage are available, and your chiropractor will choose the one that fits your personal situation.
Chiropractic adjustments can help with misalignments in the spine. Especially in contact sports, it is not unusual for the vertebrae to be out of alignment. To be at your best, everyone, not just athletes, needs to have spinal alignment to allow messages from the brain to get through freely. When the spine is in alignment, it helps lessen stress on the nerves and muscles that surround it.
Myofascial release is a type of massage that works with the fascia. Fascia are bands that surround muscles throughout the body. When it is inflamed it can form knots that are tender to the touch. Finding and releasing these knots can go a long way to relieving pain and helps with future performance.
Treatments for limbs
Your sports injury chiropractor will examine your limbs to discover the cause of pain. Chiropractic adjustment to realign joints is the first step in this treatment. If it is a muscle injury, there are things that can be done to reduce the pain associated with the injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. They can also promote healing.
Stretching and strengthening exercise helps you to continue your recovery while you are at home. We can recommend specific exercises to restore function in particular areas.
