Your Los Angeles Sports Injury Chiropractor
Sports injuries can sideline you from competing in the sport you love, or leave you with lingering pain for weeks, months, or even years after the initial injury. It may feel like you never really heal from injuries that you sustained as an athlete. If you become injured while playing sports, our staff at Active Body Chiro-Care can help you heal completely from your injury and go on living a full and active life.
Why See a Sports Chiropractor?
When you become injured while playing sports, you probably rest up, ice the injury, and hope that it will go away in time. While this approach does reduce the inflammation associated with sports injury, it does not address the underlying cause of injury. As a result, you may have lingering soreness and stiffness and your injury will take longer to heal than if you treated it in full originally.
A sports injury chiropractor in Beverly Hills can reduce the risk of re-injury or the aggravations of old injuries, reduce your inflammation and pain, and improve the sports injury healing times. Our sports chiropractor also offers lifestyle advice that can help you stay injury free while practicing the sports you love like tennis, golf and we even care for pro football players.
If you are looking for a gentle, non-invasive and holistic healing option, chiropractic care will help heal sports injuries thoroughly and return your body to a natural alignment that will prevent future injuries. Chiropractic care of sports injuries typically requires several treatment sessions over the course of multiple weeks; however, many of our patients state that they feel better even after just one treatment.
You can heal from sports injuries without the use of painkillers or the need to resort to surgery. Better still, you will enjoy a full range of motion, decreased soreness and stiffness, and improved nervous and immune system health once treatments begin.
Sports Injuries We Treat
Our chiropractor specializing in sports injuries in Beverly Hills at Active Body Chiro-Care treats a full range of sports injuries. We commonly see people who have been injured while running, cycling, playing tennis, playing golf, or playing football. We have experience treating tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, runner’s knee, shoulder injuries, shin splints, back pain, neck pain, and much more.
Our chiropractor will perform a full examination and check the alignment in your spine. Misalignment of the spinal vertebrae from the impact of your sports injury can cause muscle strains, chronic pain, and increased tension in other parts of your body.
We then perform gentle adjustments to realign spinal vertebrae and reduce your pain. We can also perform complementary therapies, like hot and cold therapy or massage.
Once you are on the road to recovery, our staff will demonstrate stretching and strengthening exercises that can increase your range of motion and strength in the affected muscles. This will keep your body in good shape and can prevent injuries going forward.
