Sports injuries are part of an athletic life. Repetitive actions, overuse of the musculoskeletal system, and the impact present in most sporting activities lead to many common sports injuries. At Back in Motion, we have decades of experience providing physiotherapy as a long-term strategy for restoring mobility and enabling athletes to get back to the level of physical fitness and success they need to pursue the sports they love.
As a sports injury chiropractor. Dr. Soni employs a multi-faceted treatment approach. Each treatment technique works synergistically with the others to eliminate pain and discomfort, increase mobility, and speed up the recovery process. Treatment modalities we employ for sports injuries include the following:
- Massage therapy
- Spinal adjustments
- Spinal decompression
- Laser therapy
- And More
Massage therapy applies pressure, movement, and muscle manipulation to address soreness, scar tissue, and muscle tension from sports injuries. Multiple types of massage may be used, but the goal of all of them is to increase blood flow, treat minor injuries, and prepare the body for any necessary chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic adjustments correct spinal misalignments in order to alleviate pain and improve the function of the spine. Delivered by forceful, focused pressure applied by a professional, these adjustments can address some of the dysfunction caused by certain sports injuries and help eliminate pain at the source.
Spinal decompression uses a specialized mechanical table to gently stretch the spine and move it into the correct position. This non-surgical technique relieves back and leg pain and can address the source of pain from a number of sports injuries. It is particularly useful for addressing slipped or bulging discs that could benefit from the release of pressure and correct alignment.
Acupuncture uses needles that are no wider than a strand of hair inserted at specific points in the body. Designed to stimulate the release of chemicals and energy from the body, this approach alleviates pain and encourages the body to heal.
Laser therapy utilizes light energy to address soft tissue damage under the skin. This light energy also reduces inflammation, pain, and range of motion while limiting the formation of scar tissue. As a result, it can serve as an effective way to speed healing from a variety of sports injuries.
