Treating Athletic Injuries the Right Way
The most common prescribed treatment for an athlete is “rest.” However, at Spokane Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic most of our athletes that are being treated are continuing to train and compete throughout their treatment. Our goal is to heal the injury and support the function of the surrounding tissues and try to maintain a level of training and competing while the injury is healing. We only rest our athletes as a last resort, or if continuing to participate is a detriment to their long-term health.
It is important to understand the dynamics that athletes face, and what drives them in succeeding. Implementing sport specific rehab exercises and monitoring return to play criteria are critical in the quick and effective treatment of sports injuries. Most physicians advertise they treat sports injuries, however only few have the experience of actually doing it on a consistent and ongoing basis.
Training programs, nutrition and supplementation are always changing in sports. Working with athletic teams and programs allows us to keep up to date on the newest products and methods that athletes are using to gain a competitive edge.
All of our doctors at Spokane Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic pride themselves in continuing to learn new ways of treating athletes to help them heal from injury or perform at a higher level. We use a variety of techniques and protocols to achieve this goal. As a group of doctors we have post graduate education in the treatment of sports injuries and concussions and are board certified in treating those injuries. Collectively, we are trained and certified in Graston®, ART®, and Kinesio Taping® methods, we do extensive rehab and we work closely with the areas top sports medicine doctors, surgeons and therapists to stay on the top of our game.
Don’t trust your body to a place that claims they treat sports injuries. Come to Spokane Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic, where we have the experience and specialize in the treatment of athletes at all levels.
