Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a marathon racer or a casual athlete, you are susceptible to injuring or straining your joints, tendons, bones and muscles. Exercise is important to maintain your health. However, proper conditioning, warm-up and cool-down procedures, understanding proper techniques and using appropriate safety equipment are crucial for sports enthusiasts.
As Weston chiropractors, we not only treat sports injuries, we provide preventative care –preparing athletes to achieve more and get injured less. We help to assess athletes by locating, detecting and correcting potential weaknesses or imbalances in the athlete that may predispose them to injuries.
There are good reasons why an athlete should seek a sports chiropractor for the treatment and rehabilitation of a sports injury. Active people are physically and emotionally different from sedentary ones. Most physicians have not had special training in sports medicine or rehabilitation. Consequently, even outstanding physicians who don’t treat athletes regularly often make mistakes in the diagnosis and treatment of athletes’ neuromusculoskeletal problems.
That’s where our chiropractic physicians at Windmill Health Center come in. We know the mind of an athlete where winning – not preventing injuries – is the foremost thought. Our goal for sports injuries? Complete recovery. While this might not always be possible, it’s always the goal. If not carefully monitored and treated, a sprain or strain injury can result in long-lasting joint instability, painful or weak joints and muscles, and lack of mobility. Our conditioning regimes will help prevent this from happening.
The types of treatment we will use depends on the injury itself. At Windmill Health Center, we specialize in the following chiropractic treatments, which may be individual or used in combination to provide easy and effective solutions for your pain:
Helping athletes to stay in the game, healthy, and at their optimal level of performance is what matters to the Weston chiropractic physicians at Windmill Health Center. Well rounded knowledge of not only the body’s bio-mechanics, but also nutrition and how it impacts the mechanism of the body, is what sets us apart as sports chiropractors.
