Sports Injury and Recovery
Apollo Health doctors have treated many different types of sports injuries. Serious athletes and weekend warriors, as well as people just embarking on a new fitness regimen, can twist, strain and pull muscles that cause enough pain to put them on the sidelines. Apollo Health doctors are committed to helping their sports injury patients get back in the game as quickly as possible. We provide a wide variety of proven, drug-free, non-invasive healing techniques that stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes. We also coach our patients on ergonomics so they are less susceptible to future sprains and strains.
Back muscle strains, ankle sprains, knee injuries, whiplash, shoulder injuries, arm, wrist and elbow injuries are all common sports injuries. Each patient undergoes a thorough examination. Once Apollo Health doctors understand the extent of the injury, we can develop a comprehensive healing plan, tailored to the individual patient’s needs. Depending on the injury, we usually recommend a course of chiropractic spinal or extremity adjustments to free pinched nerves, as well as a combination of soft tissue therapies, including massage therapy, that address muscle strains in various parts of the body.
Although many sports injuries are unavoidable accidents, there are many others that truly are avoidable. We teach patients therapeutic exercises and stretches to help them regain strength and flexibility. We also coach them on good exercise form, proper warm ups and helpful cool downs. These routines can enhance flexibility and prevent unfortunate sports mishaps.
Those who suffer from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, radiating arm/leg pain, or any number of pain conditions are all possible candidates for spinal decompression therapy and should be evaluated.
