SPORTS MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION
It is getting more and more apparent that chiropractic and rehabilitation have become essential in the sports community. Many professional athletes are embracing both chiropractic and sports rehabilitation, attributing their success and improved performance to these practices. Athletes such as golfer Tiger Woods; baseball players Barry Bonds and Wade Boggs; football players Joe Montana and Jerry Rice; heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield; basketball player Charles Barkley; Olympian decathlon gold medalist Dan O'Brien; Olympic beach volleyball gold medalists Karch Kiraly and Kent Steffes, and many others are regular chiropractic patients.
It is also worthy to note that it is chiropractic that has relieved the pain associated with sports injury while sports rehabilitation allows a fast and full recovery from this injury.
Acupuncture is a system of complementary medicine that involves pricking the skin or tissues with needles, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West. This treatment is especially effective with resolving acute or chronic pain, including autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
This is a technique that is gaining significant popularity due to its very rapid effects. It is the repeated insertion of an acupuncture needle into a very tight muscle in order to “pry” apart the spastic muscle fibers or muscle “knot”. This technique quickly releases the tight muscle and allows the muscle to relax and become pain free. This technique is especially useful with resolving sports injuries.
This therapy helps conditions where all previous therapies may have failed. This non-thermal laser causes an increase of metabolism of injured cells, expediting cell repair and reducing healing time. Cold laser is especially effective with decreasing inflammation, relieving acute and chronic pain, stimulating the immune system, stimulating nerve function and promoting faster tissue healing and regeneration.
