Chiropractic Sports Injury Treatments
If you enjoy playing sports – either as a hobby, at school, or professionally – you are constantly putting your body through a lot of work. This can be a good thing, of course, as it helps you stay in great shape. However, it can also put you at high risk of sustaining a sports injury. Learn about some of the chiropractic sports injury treatments that Dr. Ichishita and the team at Big Island Chiropractic in Kailua Kona, HI, provide that can help you recover quickly and naturally.
Athletes of all levels can easily sustain a misalignment in the spinal column or extremities, which can cause pain, headaches, tension, limited range of motion, and more that can affect how you feel and how you play. Restoring alignment throughout the skeletal system gets to the root of the symptoms.
All of your muscles, organs, and other bodily components are connected, supported, and stabilized by connective tissue known as fascia. This tissue often develops tension and painful knots that restrict movement, impede blood flow, and more. Myofascial release is a technique that directly addresses the fascia, gently yet effectively relieving tension and knots that are causing your pain.
Though therapeutic exercises can be similar to exercises used for workouts, they have a different focus. These stretching and strengthening movements are recommended for and utilized to correct specific problems in the musculoskeletal system. They provide benefits such as pain relief, recovery, spinal health and wellness, improved range of motion, and more.
Injuries in the soft tissues often need some additional help. Interferential electro-therapy is a technique that sends low-frequency currents into damaged tissue. These currents stimulate healing, help reduce muscle spasms, and release endorphins, which are a natural painkiller.
