Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, any sports injury that keeps you from doing what you love can be difficult to withstand. Even worse, trying to push through the injury, or returning to play before it is fully healed, can lengthen the recovery process. Our team is here to provide the pain relief that you need to get back to 100% and back on the field as soon as possible.
Sports Injury Treatment
Our team at St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury & Rehab offers care for many common conditions that affect sports enthusiasts:
- Soft Tissue Injuries
- Shoulder Injuries
- Sprains and Strains
- Runner's Knee
- Tennis Elbow
Comprehensive and Effective Care for Your Sports Injury
Injuries to soft tissue areas such as the shoulder and ankle can be some of the most difficult to heal. If you have runner's knee, tennis elbow, or any other pain, injury, or discomfort caused by sports participation, chiropractic care is an effective treatment option.
We have a number of different treatment options available for you, and your chiropractor will work closely with you to determine which is best for your needs. In many circumstances, your chiropractor will utilize a combination of a number of different treatment modalities to best treat your sports injury and prevent it from happening again.
- Graston Technique - Soft tissue activation that helps to break down scar tissue and relieve pain
- Kinesio Taping - This elastic therapeutic tape works for knee, shoulder, ankle, and wrist pain
- Active Release Technique (ART) - This soft tissue treatment activates areas in which you have pain releasing the build-up of tension and scar tissue
- Strengthening Exercises - Targeted to your weak spots, we can create a regimen for you that addresses areas where improved strength can help to prevent future re-injury
Our care is not limited to injury treatment; we can also work with you to provide nutritional counseling and other lifestyle adaptations that can help you to feel better overall while also improving your athletic performance.
