Whether you're a tennis professional, a high school football player, or a marathon runner, he is likely to have a technique to help you.

Why Is There a Specialty for Sports Chiropractic Treatment? 

Some chiropractors focus on sports therapy because of the unique needs that an athletic body has. While anyone can be susceptible to injury, athletes put a particular amount of wear and tear on their bodies. Their training alone is enough to strain muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, etc. Luckily, a chiropractor can focus on not only specific injuries to their muscles or ligaments but also deal with their care in a holistic way. For example, a chiropractor may focus on a plan that includes a manual adjustment, electrical muscular therapy, or some form of chiropractic massage. With the right combination of techniques, an injured athletic body can heal faster and run, hit, or jump faster than before.

What Are Some Techniques Used?

When you need a sports injury chiropractor in La Grange, IL, there are few limits to the options available to you. In most cases, your chiropractor will start with a spinal adjustment. Some sports chiropractors may prefer to use manual techniques or an activator tool that provides faster and more focused hits to the spine. If the sports injury is related to soft tissue like muscles and tendons, then cold laser therapy, which uses low-spectrum light to stimulate tissue, may be helpful. Chiropractic massage provides better circulation in the areas being stretched. The massage therapist can directly feel knots or muscle tension. When it comes to treating sports injuries, there is no one-size-fits-all. After all, athletes have different body types and injuries to consider. Your chiropractic professional understands this and will tailor any care to your situation.
