|Sports rehab at Health-Fit Chiropractic & Sports Medicine combines Rehabilitation, Advice, Soft Tissue Therapy and Joint Manipulation to treat sports injuries, increase performance, and improve the quality of life. Our patients, whether an athlete or not, will be given a corrective exercises prescription as part of their treatment plan.
During the initial process of care, therapeutic exercises are given based on the injury diagnosis. Once the pain starts to subside, exercises are prescribed specific to the patient’s functional/biomechanical assessment, sport, work demands, or activities of daily living.
The key to any treatment plan is specific advice regarding activities of daily living, proper warm-ups, preventative measures, referral to technique coaches, etc. Many times these tips are what make the difference in freeing the pain and preventing its return. Too many practitioners forget this key component of care.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Treatments such as Active Release Technique, Graston Technique and Massage are vital components of any sports rehab program. Without addressing the myofascial restrictions of a patient, many times you will miss the true cause of the pain.
As a sports Chiropractor, addressing any joint restrictions that are present may be necessary in restoring proper motion to the area as well as improving the biomechanics. Many times a joint restriction in the spine or joint may cause reactive muscular tightness or restriction and be the root cause of the pain/injury.
