SAN ANTONIO, June 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Whether you are a weekend warrior or a dedicated athlete, at some point, you will have to deal with occasional injuries that take you out of the game or leave you feeling sore and lacking your usual high level of function. Although conventional medicine offers a number of treatments, these may often include strong medications that have side effects or surgical procedures that require long recovery periods. Chiropractic care offers another option that is non-invasive and drug-free. Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness in San Antonio, TX offer a number of effective strategies for the treatment of sport injuries.
Anyone involved in athletic activities knows the common problems that come with leaving it all on the field. Simple sprains and strains occur as a matter of course. Some injuries may be more severe. You may be left with tendonitis, ankle weakness, back sprains, hamstring sprains, knee pain, aching shins or shoulder impairment. These issues can leave lasting pain and problems with mobility that impact your daily life. Your home treatments can help, but may not go far enough to returning you to full function. A sports chiropractor can offer immediate relief for minor problems, before they become more troublesome injuries.
Many athletes seek out chiropractic care for their injuries because it offers an effective alternative to reduce pain and improve function. Spinal re-alignment helps to restore normal movement that can often be disrupted when an injury occurs. In addition, manual adjustments help to relieve pressure on nerves that cause chronic pain. Better alignment of the spine can also help to prevent repeat injuries. Physiotherapy is used to strengthen muscles to allow better function. For soft tissue injuries, massage, cold laser and nutritional support help to speed healing. Taken together, these therapies ensure proper healing, relief from pain and improved function.
As a chiropractor in San Antonio, TX, Dr. Phillips uses his extensive knowledge of the techniques employed in chiropractic care to enhance healing and encourage better mobility in patients who have sustained athletic injuries. His expertise in nutrition and wellness provide additional help to speed the healing process and encourage better overall health. Dr. Phillips notes, “The human body is a system designed to work in congress with other parts for smooth motion. Treating just one part won’t address basic problems of effective movement.”
