Sports Injury Rehabilitation with Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy and Exercise Therapy
Activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. Our team of professionals work with amateur through professional athletes in Summerville and the surrounding areas of South Carolina for optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately injuries occur, but with chiropractic for sports injuries, clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
A sports injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from or lead to poor technique when an individual overcompensates for an injury. This overcompensation can be favoring one side of his or her body or favoring a certain position. Sports injuries can also lead to secondary pains and problems. Dr. James Turn treats not just the specific location of pain but the areas radiating out from it as well.
Sports Injuries Can Cause Further Injuries if Left Untreated
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, our chiropractors also treat and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decrease inflammation and allow the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients and water can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.
