How Can My Summer Sports Injury Heal Faster?

Whether you’ve pulled a muscle, are struggling with back pain, or experiencing excessive soreness and stiffness after exercising, summer sports injuries can be especially frustrating. With warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine here in Naperville, summer is the time to be outside taking advantage of this beautiful weather, not stuck inside with a sports injury. Ever wish you could just hit the fast-forward button on the injury recovery process? Wish there were something more you could do for your body than just icing a sore muscle? Chiropractic care can help.

Naperville Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

While our Naperville chiropractor can’t magically make your injury heal overnight, depending on the type and extent your injury, chiropractic care may be able to help you heal faster while also minimizing your pain. Here’s how Dr. Erickson can help treat your summer sports injuries:

  1. Treat the problem at the source. If you suffer from recurring elbow pain, shoulder pain, back and neck pain, or knee pain, you know all too well that simply taking a few days off from exercising won’t solve your problem. Our chiropractor in Naperville Dr. Erikson will conduct diagnostic tests designed to precisely identify the root cause for your pain. For example, many patients are surprised to discover that a previously undiagnosed spinal misalignment may be contributing to their recurring pain. Bringing correct alignment back to the spine reduces the likelihood for incorrect repetitive motions that trigger future pain.
  2. Minimize swelling and support healing. Sprains and strains are some of the most common injuries. A sprain occurs when a ligament is damaged while as a strain affects the muscles. Besides pain, both typically result in inflammation, tenderness and soreness. Acupuncture treatments can help reduce this swelling and inflammation by improving circulation while increasing the body’s endorphin levels to naturally minimize pain. Dr. Erikson frequently recommends acupuncture treatments as a natural complement to sports injury chiropractic care.

You don’t need to be a professional athlete to deserve cutting-edge sports injury rehabilitation and pain management! For more information on sports injury treatment, contact Dr. Tim Erikson at 630-984-5503.
