An Overview of Sports Injury Treatment Services from Elan Wellness Center in Tampa
Sports are a great way for people to exercise, stay in shape, and learn about teamwork. When people play sports, injuries can and do happen. These injuries have the potential to impact multiple areas of a person's life. When people go and visit a traditional doctor, they are often told that they are going to have to take prescription medications that they may even require surgery to recover. Fortunately, there are alternative treatment options available. Our team from Elan Wellness Center is here to make sure that all of our patients have access to a Tampa and Westchase chiropractor who can create a treatment plan for their sports injuries.
How a Chiropractor Can Help with Sports Injuries
Many people believe that chiropractors can only help with back pain. However, chiropractors do so much more. We have a variety of treatment options at our disposal to treat injuries across the entire body. These include:
Preventative Therapy: Much of what we do focuses on preventing injuries from happening in the first place. We believe that keeping athletes on the field of play is the best way to handle injuries. We will work with you to figure out where on your body injuries are most likely to occur. Then, we will design a program to strengthen these areas to prevent those injuries from happening.
Avoid Surgery: A chiropractor can also help someone who has suffered an injury avoid surgery. We accomplish this by using chiropractic adjustments to align a person's musculoskeletal system to allow the body to heal naturally, and by using specific exercises to strengthen the site of the injury to provide it with more support.
Physical Therapy and Corrective Exercises: In our office, we perform a lot of adjustments and manipulations to make sure that people's joints are lined up. At the same time, we also offer physical therapy and corrective exercise programs that are designed to target injured areas and provide them with added structural and functional mobility.
