Sports Injury Treatment in Fair Lawn, NJ
Sports Injury Treatment in Fair Lawn, NJ: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting the body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent them.
Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause pain later in life. This can lead to chronic pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Cohen treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
Dr. Cohen can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Radburn Family Chiropractic, Dr. Cohen will perform a full evaluation. Dr. Cohen will construct a customized treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.
We also provide a 3D Body Scan to evaluate body balance for function and mobility. Our chiropractic adjustments are extremely gentle with VibraCussor® and ArthroStim® instruments. The VibraCussor® instrument delivers vibrating pulses deep into the tissues of the body to reduce tension and pain. The ArthroStim® gently applies pulsed pressure around the vertebrae to move them back into their correct position, avoiding the high-force manual adjustments used by traditional chiropractors.
