Common Sports Injuries Treated at Coy Chiropractic
If you are a sports fan, chances are you’ve seen someone on your favorite team suffer a sports injury. Unfortunately, the same thing can happen to you in a pickup basketball game or an “Over 40” softball league. It is not at all uncommon for an athlete of any skill level to experience knee pain, neck pain, back pain, or a variety of other ailments after practicing or competing in a sport. In sports, three of the most common types of injuries you’ll hear about are strains, sprains and dislocations. All three can be painful, and all three can be treated with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic Treatment for a Sports Injury
The holistic approach to healing that we take at Coy Chiropractic is often effective in treating strains, sprains and dislocations. In addition to getting dislocated bones and tendons relocated and properly aligning the body, our Kingwood chiropractor can teach exercises that will strengthen the muscles around the injured area so that it is less likely to be injured again. In order to speed healing, Dr. Coy also often incorporates low level laser therapy for injury patients. Low level laser therapy is a fast and effective way to stimulate cell activity and further healing. Additionally, Dr. Coy can teach subtle lifestyle changes that can reduce the overall risk of injury in the future.
Kingwood Chiropractic Care
If you are experiencing pain from a sports injury, Kingwood chiropractic care can help you get pain relief and get back in the game. Dr. Coy has more than two decades of chiropractic experience and is known for employing gentle hands-on-techniques and advanced physiotherapy procedures. Treatment begins with a thorough examination to find all the areas that are mis-aligned, not just the ones that are causing immediate pain. Next comes the gentle but effective adjustments to help with the immediate problem. Finally, a course of action is recommended, usually involving preventative care, diet and exercise, to help you stay healthy for the long term and avoid further injury.
