Chiropractic Care Can Help You Recover Faster From Summer Sports Injuries
Swimming, hiking, biking, boating, tennis and running become the standard for many individuals and families during the summer, and as activity increases, the potential for injuries also increase.
Common Summer Sports Injuries
The most common sports injuries in Boca Raton include tennis and golfers elbow, runner’s knee and injuries associated with recreational boating and water skiing, which include sprains and strains of the shoulders and ankles as well as back injuries.
Tennis and golfer’s elbow and runner’s knee are repetitive motion injuries. These injuries occur over time, and the associated symptoms and pain become worse as the conditions progress. Sprains and strains of the shoulders, ankles and back usually result in immediate pain, weakness and a reduction in range of motion. Thankfully, if you are looking for a sports injury chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella can provide sports injury relief and tennis elbow and knee pain relief.
Treatment Options From Our Sport Injury Chiropractor
Dr. Allan DellaBella utilizes several techniques to help individuals heal their summer sports injuries, including Diversified, Thompson, Cox, Gonstead, Flexion Distraction and activator techniques. The diversified technique involves the use of our chiropractor’s hands and forearms to perform spinal and extremity joint manipulations.
The Thompson technique utilizes a special chiropractic table with drop sections to aid in the chiropractic adjustment. The Cox technique is used to decompress an individual’s spine and provide relief for herniated and ruptured discs.
The Gonstead technique is used to balance the vertebrae and joints of the pelvis, hips and legs to provide pain relief and promote proper body alignment and healing. The Flexion Distraction technique is used to alleviate back and leg pain that is caused by disc problems.
The activator method can be used to adjust any joint in the body, and involves the use of a handheld medical device that contains an arm with a rubber tip to provide pressure at very specific points in order to alleviate pain and promote healing.
