Sports injury rehabilitation
Physical activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. We work with amateur through professional athletes 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 poor technique or lead to poor technique when an individual athlete overcompensates for an injury. This type of overcompensation includes favoring one side of his or her body or one position. Sports injuries also lead to secondary pains and problems. Our sports chiropractors in Rockford, IL treat not just the specific location of pain but the areas radiating out from it as well.
Chiropractic techniques used by our doctors
Diversified Technique: This is high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts during adjustments. The diversified technique is the most commonly used adjustment technique and its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment to the joints and spine.
Activator Methods®: The activator method is used at our clinic as well. It involves a small handle instrument which provides for a gentler chiropractic adjustment. This method is popular among children, seniors and patients with acute pain.
Cox Flexion-Distraction: This technique applies small, precise amounts of flexion distraction to the part of the spine experiencing herniation or disc compression. As the vertebrae are gently pulled away from each other, the negative pressure draws the bulging or herniated disc back into position relieving nerve pressure and pain.
Graston Technique®: Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training. This results in improved patient outcomes.
Acupuncture: There are 361 acupuncture points in the body divided among 12 meridians. Every point may, by itself or in combination with other points, help a condition of the body.
Spinal Decompression: Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment that ultimately helps to alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine. Decompression therapy creates lower pressure in the discs that cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to enter spaces between the discs that are important for improving functions of the body.
Kinesio Taping: The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.
