Common Sports Injuries Manhattan KS Athletes Suffer Fromsports injury treatment

Sports injuries can occur as a direct result of your sporting activity, contact with another athlete or as a result of pre-existing overuse. In some cases, minor sports injuries may occur to tissues that go un-noticed that later transition into a more serious injury. Common sports injuries we see are tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, dislocated or sprained joints, knee, shoulder, wrist and ankle injuries and related soft tissue damage. Many of these injuries result in subluxation to varying areas of the spinal column as well. 

Treatments For Sports Injuries At Nichols Chiropractic 

Simple chiropractic adjustments may be what your injury requires. We will work to provide relief care, corrective and rehabilitative care to restore you to optimized wellness following a sports injury. 

ART Technique For Sports Injuries

We  employ the ART technique otherwise known as active release therapy.  Dr. Roop, our certified ART provider works to assist with overuse injuries. This movement-based massage therapy works to repair soft tissue and muscle damage and can be helpful particularly with shin splints, tennis elbow, knee injuries and other pain related to sports injuries. 

iTrac Therapy For Sports Injury Related Health Concerns

Sports injuries may also involve other areas of the body if allowed to go untreated. We often hear about headaches as a result of an untreated sports injury for instance. For these related concerns we may use iTrac therapy. This therapy helps correct optimized posture of the head and neck therefore eliminating the source of the headaches at their root. 

Kinesio Taping For Sports Injuries

Dr. Beugelsdijk  provides our in-house Kinesio Tape protocols to help keep you in the game and manage your sports injuries. Kinesio Tape helps to reposition and restrict soft tissue to reduce injury, prevent injury or assist a recent injury in healing. Taping helps reduce inflammation and improve blood flow to the affected areas. It is a reliable method of between visit-care to help potentiate the results of your care with us. 

Chiropractic Is For Kid's Sports Injuries 

Adults are not the only ones who suffer from sports injuries. In many cases, children and teens may seem even more resilient to a sports injury. We however encourage you to bring your kids to see us for an exam and adjustment following any sports injuries.
