Chiropractic Sports Injury Rehab in Tacoma
Engaging in a sport increases the risk of accidents and injuries. When you notice pain or a consistent ache after a game, practice or other activities related to sports, you may benefit from working with our Tacoma chiropractor.
What is Sports Injury Rehab?
Sports injury rehab refers to a treatment strategy used by a Tacoma chiropractor to address injuries from playing a sport. While the specific service we recommend for your injuries may vary based on the situation, the rehab plan focuses on addressing your needs and healing your injuries.
Common injuries we may treat include:
- Knee pain
- Shoulder or elbow injuries from repetitive motions
- Sprained or strained muscles
- Torn ligaments
Since the ache may stem from repetitive motions, wear and tear on your body, contact with other players or even accidents on the field, we develop a personalized plan for your injuries.
How Chiropractors in Tacoma Care for Sports Injuries
Chiropractors in Tacoma care for sports injuries by identifying the specific injury and developing a personalized strategy to heal your body. In our clinic, we recommend chiropractic adjustments or decompression therapy for whiplash and related injuries. We may use decompression therapy to reduce pressure on your nerves and alleviate pain. We also use Kinesio taping to help reduce the risk of further injuries while your body heals.
Massage therapy in our clinic helps your body heal from sprains, strains and other soft-tissue injuries. We may also use heat and cold therapy to help reduce swelling when you visit our clinic with a new injury. Our treatment plan focuses on the specific injuries, so each individual has a personalized strategy based on their needs and the type of problems causing aches and pains throughout the body or in specific areas.
