At Bergen Physical Medicine, we have seen many athletes turn to chiropractic after an injury. Medical doctors typically treat a sports injury by alleviating symptoms with medication and recommending rest from activity. Chiropractic has an approach to rehabilitating sports injuries that considers a patient’s entire body and its natural ability to heal itself. This always results in less time ‘benched’ from activity and a quicker recovery. Even professional athletes with very healthy bodies have relied too much on medication, and now professionals are seeking chiropractors to rehabilitate sports injuries.
You don’t need to be a professional athlete to rehabilitate a sports injury the right way. A chiropractor will focus on repairing any damage to hard and soft tissue with chiropractic adjustments to the spine and extremities. If you are in pain from an injury your chiropractor will of course advise the best pain relief strategy for you. However, your only prescription will likely include physical therapy exercises for you to perform on your own. Start rehabbing sports injuries with your chiropractor now for a lifetime of healthy activity!
