What are the risk factors for sports injuries?

Anyone can experience sports injuries, but some factors increase your risk of having one. Examples include cutting, sprinting, jumping, twisting, overtraining, playing contact sports, and lacking strength or flexibility. Eating healthy foods, training correctly, and maintaining a healthy weight are some of the best ways to avoid sports injuries.

How are sports injuries treated?

Dr. Joseph offers highly effective treatments for sports injuries. Examples include:

Home remedies

Things you can do at home to treat sports injuries include icing the affected area, resting it, and wearing a brace if needed while your injury heals. 

Myofascial release

Myofascial release uses manual pressure or high-frequency vibrating devices to treat ongoing tightness and post-surgical scar tissues.

Massage therapy

Integrated Chiropractic provides an on-site licensed massage therapist, available by appointment. Massage therapy is a natural way to enhance your body’s ability to heal and relieve discomfort.

Kinesio Taping®

Integrated Chiropractic offers Kinesio® Tex Gold Tape to reposition or better support targeted tissues, reduce pain and inflammation, improve circulation, stimulate natural healing, and reduce the risk of future injuries.

Near-infrared light therapy

Near-infrared light therapy strengthens cell structures and stimulates healing after sports injuries. It also reduces inflammation and discomfort.

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments use manual pressure techniques or specialized instruments to manipulate and realign affected tissues, enhance natural healing, and ease pain. 

Corrective exercises

Dr. Joseph designs home exercise plans to correct postural and functional imbalances. Injury-specific exercises and stretches speed up healing after sports injuries.

Custom foot orthotics

Custom foot orthotics are shoe inserts to improve posture and foot positioning. They enhance comfort and reduce your risk of future injuries.

Which sports injury treatments are right for me?

To determine which sports-related injuries are best for you, Dr. Joseph discusses your symptoms and medical history. He completes a physical exam and may recommend you undergo blood tests, digital X-rays, or other imaging procedures to develop a highly effective treatment plan.
