Common treatments for sports include spinal adjustments and manipulation, Electrical Stimulation Therapy, Cold Laser, Ultrasound, and massage.
- Spinal adjustments and manipulation work on improving the alignment of the spine and the entire musculoskeletal system. Spinal health is imperative for living a healthy and pain-free life. Spinal adjustments include manipulation of specific parts of the body such as the back, neck, and shoulders to create optimal alignment of the spine. Spinal adjustments can reduce pressure on the nerves and help facilitate improvement of the body’s circulatory system.
- Electrical Stimulation Therapy modalities utilize electrical current to stimulate the muscle or soft tissue and can help improve injuries and stiffness in the joints, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and enhance the body’s natural healing process through the stimulation of healing hormones.
- Cold Laser Therapy utilizes a low-spectrum laser light to treat a wide variety of ailments by increasing cellular energy, improving blood flow, and facilitating the repair of damaged tissues.
- Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to help break down scar tissue, increase blood flow, and relax tissues.
