Treating Sports Injury with Chiropractic

runners being treated with chiropractic techniques in Naperville, IL

For some people, playing sports and staying physically active is a way of life. For others, it's simply a great way to pass the time with friends and loved ones. At Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we treat people of all ages and backgrounds--from elite-level collegiate athletes to busy, gym-going working professionals. 

What Kinds of Sports Injuries Can Chiropractic Care Treat?

Dr. Erickson and his staff examines, evaluates, and treats many common sports-related injuries, including:

  • Concussion and headache

  • Back pain 

  • Joint pain

  • Muscle spasms or strains

  • Knee Pain

Why Naperville Chiropractic?

Because chiropractic care focuses on a "whole person" approach to healing, athletes benefit greatly from receiving chiropractic care after an injury. This is because an entire person's posture, body mechanics, sport-specific movements, and overall lifestyle are considered by a chiropractor to be important pieces to the puzzle of resolving both the symptoms and underlying causes of dysfunction. A chiropractor uses all this information--gleaned from a thorough physical examination and a detailed patient history to create individualized treatment plans designed to safely and effectively accelerate a person's recovery. 

Many athletes also prefer chiropractic care in the management of their sports injury, since chiropractors use non-invasive and all-natural treatments without the use of drugs or medications, eliminating the risk of exposure to banned substances.  

What Types of Chiropractic Services are Available to Treat My Sports Injury?

Specific therapeutic techniques used by chiropractors to treat and prevent sports injury include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments, to restore normal motion and energy flow in the spinal column

  • Massage therapy, electrical stimulation, and acupuncture, to relieve pain and promote tissue healing

  • Corrective exercise, to maximize strength and endurance of important postural muscles
