What methods of treatment will be used by a chiropractor?
Chiropractors have different methods and techniques that they use on their patients but they all have the same goal, to help relieve and treat your pain. Some chiropractors use only their hands when treating their patients while others use various instruments and tools. The force exerted by the chiropractor on the area of pain will depend on the patient and the chiropractor’s preference. Some patients favor joint popping types of treatment that may involve deep massaging or hard usage of instruments while others prefer a low force technique. No matter the treatment technique used, chiropractors are almost always successful in their goal of relieving pain in the patient’s body.
What specific injuries from specific sports can chiropractors treat?
Sports-related injuries are varied and can have nagging effects on the body if left untreated. The most common types of injuries from sports that chiropractors help treat are injuries to the neck and back areas. Neck and back pain can be very serious and can linger and cause problems later in life. Injuries to these areas of the body can be caused by any sport, contact or non-contact. Lower back pain is common in athletes that are constantly bending, twisting and turning their bodies in sports like golf, tennis, soccer, and skiing among others. Playing contact sports such as lacrosse, football and wrestling will often cause severe pain to the body because of constant contact and tension that the body will not respond well to. Back and neck pain is caused by a lot of stress and absorption of pressure to these areas of the body and they affect the range of motion your body has and will limit your performance while playing the sport you love. By seeing a Massapequa Chiropractor, you are ensured that pain caused by playing sports will be successfully treated and sooner rather than later, you will be back to playing pain-free.
