Understanding Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can result from accidents, improper equipment or gear, inadequate training, or insufficient warm-up and stretching practices. Some of the most common sports injuries include sprains and strains, knee injuries, tennis elbow (epicondylitis), and other severe ailments. These injuries can cause significant pain, limiting your athletic performance and affecting your daily activities. At Innovative Pain and Performance, we believe in comprehensive, individualized care that addresses the root cause of your pain.
Our Approach to Sports Injury Care
Our approach to sports injury care integrates chiropractic treatments with rehabilitative exercises and wellness planning. We recognize that every patient is unique, so we tailor our treatment plan to your specific needs and goals. Our skilled chiropractors, Dr. Lauren McCabe and Dr. Avolio, use a variety of techniques to treat sports injuries, improving your mobility, alleviating pain, and preventing re-injury.
What is Included in our Sports Injury Care?
Your sports injury care begins with a thorough assessment, including a detailed discussion about your medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests if needed. We will then develop a unique treatment plan that may involve chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, soft tissue therapy, and other modalities depending on your needs. We also offer wellness planning, educating you on proper nutrition, exercise, lifestyle modifications, and injury prevention to promote optimal health and well-being.
What to Expect from Sports Injury Care
As each person’s situation is unique, so is the healing process. In the initial stages of treatment, the focus will be on pain relief and inflammation reduction. Once pain levels have decreased, we’ll work on restoring normal function and strength through corrective care. Finally, we’ll focus on wellness care to maintain your improved health status and prevent future injuries.
During your treatment, you can expect to be an active participant in your recovery. Dr. McCabe or Dr. Avolio will guide you through specific exercises and stretches that you can also do at home to speed up your recovery process. Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic care isn’t painful. Any adjustments are carefully performed to ensure maximum comfort.
