We begin with a consultation to better understand you and your condition
Sports injuries refer to injuries that happen while playing a sport or during exercise, and it can happen to both the casual sports player as well as top performing athletes. The most common type of sports injuries happen to the musculoskeletal system - that is the interlinking web of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and tissues that provides movement and stability to the body. Injuries through sports can generally be divided into two categories: acute and chronic. Acute issues happen suddenly, usually through an impact force that is greater than what the body can withstand. Chronic problems are conditions that slowly develop overtime, and are often related to repeating the same motions over and over again. Both acute and chronic injuries can lead to inflammation, swelling, and even to tears or fractures.
Athletes, whether amateur or elite, both have a common concern, which is to return to the sport in the shortest amount of time possible. However, playing through the pain may cause more harm instead. Minor injuries can resolve within a few days; however if the pain repeatedly flares up during training, it is advisable to seek medical help.
Many professional sports teams (such as the NFL, NHL, EPL) and even Olympic teams offer chiropractors' and physiotherapists' services on their medical team. The goal of rehabilitation is to help the sports person or athlete to return to the sport, and improve the performance. We use the latest advanced technologies to speed up the recovery process, and the rehabilitation team provides exercise programs to strengthen and condition the area.
It may be unavoidable to have injuries happen during exercise and sport, but the health benefits of regular exercise far outweighs the risks.
