Sports Injuries Treatment with our Troy and Garden City Chiropractors
At the Gregg Chiropractic Life Center, proudly serving the greater Detroit area, our Garden City, and Troy, MI chiropractors enjoy working with active people. We find these patients are often hard-working, interested in living as healthy as possible, and willing to be engaged and active participants in their care. And since sports injuries can happen to seasoned athletes, complete beginners, and everyone in between, the non-invasive and drug-free services offered by through chiropractic care is an excellent resource for anyone participating in sports or exercise, at whatever age or level.
Common Sports Injuries Seen by Our Chiropractors
Sports injuries can occur in virtually all types of activities: contact, non-contact, low impact, etc. Here are a few of the most common ones we see among our patients:
- Whiplash and concussion
- Spinal muscle strain
- Rotator cuff strain or tear
- Spinal joint misalignment
- Nerve impingement (in the spine or in an extremity)
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splints
If left untreated, acute "little" issues can easily devolve into chronic problems (including arthritis and nerve damage) and may eventually lead to career-ending injuries.
How Chiropractic Care Supports Athletes Well Beyond Injury Care
Chiropractors heal injuries without drugs (helpful for any athlete concerned about accidentally consuming banned substances) and without invasive procedures that could otherwise require even more downtime. Chiropractic adjustments, for instance, help optimize your spinal alignment, essential because the backbone houses your central nervous system and directly affects the way you move. Everything you do, from throwing a ball to lifting weights, depends on a healthy back!
We also offer modalities such as spinal decompression and laser therapy to relieve heal injured tissues, relieve pain, reduce swelling, and restore normal mobility.
Importantly, our chiropractors can also help you avoid injury in the first place by helping you pinpoint and address hidden issues which may be increasing your risk of injury. We can identify mobility restrictions, postural asymmetries, areas previously weakened by scar tissue, motor planning, and body mechanics issues, and even methods of breathing, recovering, and eating that may be limiting your physical potential and putting you at risk for injury. Consider an appointment with one of our chiropractors like a pre-season checklist for your body!
