The chiropractic services offered by Dr. McBride don’t just help you heal—they can help strengthen you against future injury. There are a number of common injury types caused by sports.
These often have to do with the impact and repetition of the chosen sport. We’ll customize treatment based on your injury, physical exam, and medical history.
Sport Injury Treatment Methods
Just some of the methods we use include:
- Soft tissue work – We’ll work on trigger points in order to release muscle fibers from their contracted state. When these fibers get overstimulated they can cause knots that affect your performance and mobility even when pain isn’t present.
- Chiropractic adjustment – Adjustments are an ideal way to support the natural defense system of your own body. We can use specific techniques to stimulate healing and correct problems originating with your discs that may be affecting nerve processes and range of motion.
- Exercise training – The human body is similar to a machine. Improving the way it performs specific processes improves performance. Exercise training can help improve your form and natural resiliency against tissue damage.
Sports related injuries can be treated in the hands, feet, ankles, knees, elbows, hips, and shoulder as well as well as the neck, arms, back, and legs. Just some of the sports related conditions we treat include:
