A Chiropractic Approach to Sports Medicine
Sports rehabilitation done wrong can have a lasting negative impact on athletes, including movement limitations, muscular scarring, and reduced athletic performance. For the serious athlete, getting the proper care for a sports injury is of paramount importance. At Action Chiropractic Center in Santa Cruz, we have years of experience rehabilitating the sports injuries of athletes of all kinds. Botched response to a sports injury is one of the top reasons why previously high-performing athletes begin to lose ground against the competition. If you are suffering from a sports injury, our expert chiropractic care assures you will not fall behind.
Exercising Correctly Under Chiropractic Care
A key aspect of healing involves moving and re-using the injured area when possible. However, just getting up and moving as you did before your sports injury can trigger a new, worse injury. Instead, corrective exercises under chiropractic care can help stimulate the injured area in a safe, controlled manner. Once trained, an injured or recovering athlete can do the same exercises at home. This cuts down on the overall recovery time needed while still increasing sports rehabilitation capability overall.
With a full nutritional evaluation, a chiropractor can identify where consumption and weight may be working against an athlete instead of improving their performance. Dietary changes can be very effective in sports injury rehabilitation, especially if joints and muscles are overloaded with weight.
Spinal Screenings After Injuries
Many sports injuries can stay hidden for months because they aren’t obvious like bruises and broken bones. Spinal twists, strains, and slipped discs are common sports injuries that go undetected. Our Santa Cruz chiropractor will take you through a full screening before chiropractic care, finding and diagnosing many of these hidden issues that are holding back your sports performance from reaching its full potential.
