Athletic injuries can take many forms depending on the sport being played. Strains and sprains are common sports-related injuries. Subluxations are also well-known. When you receive a sports-related injury, it is important to receive treatment immediately. The sooner you are treated, the sooner you will be able to return to your sport of choice. Our team at Health First Chiropractic Clinic in Detroit wants to help you get off the bench and back in the game.

Treating the Injury

Dr. Salame will perform a thorough examination of the area before creating a treatment plan. The treatment plan will be designed to provide pain relief while supporting the body’s natural healing process. Chiropractic care is much more than simple adjustments. Deep tissue massage, corrective exercises, and physical therapy are also used to correct any problems caused by your sports injury. Correcting an injury as soon as it occurs reduces the risk of scar tissue and unnecessary pain.

Chiropractic Care Supports the Healing Process

Chiropractic care supports the healing process by giving the body what it needs to fix itself. This means restoring balance by realigning the injured joints in the body. Once the body has been returned to its natural state and the healing process begins, corrective exercises and physical therapy can be used to strengthen the body. Proper form and function are necessary elements when it comes to healing. If a joint has been dislocated or injured, it will take time for the area to heal properly.

Returning to the Field

Before returning to the field, our chiropractor will want to make sure the injury has healed properly and that you are strong enough to play without re-injuring yourself. Continuing your visits with our chiropractor after you return to the field will ensure that you do not take unnecessary risks that could cause the injury to recur.
