Chiropractic care is used by many athletes for their sports injuries. Even if you are a weekend warrior, your sports aches and pains can respond well to chiropractic treatment. Dr. Michal Nesnick of Nesnick Total Health in Woodstock, GA offers many treatments that can get you back to your best self.
Sports can put tremendous pressure on parts of the body. Knee injuries account for about 55% of sports injuries. This includes injuries to the ACL and meniscus, as well as degeneration of the knee. Other common sports injuries include damage to wrists, necks, backs, shoulders, elbows, and ankles.
Cryotherapy is useful for treating sports injuries to the joints and the muscles. Dr. Nesnick uses localized cryostimulation which adds ice and compression to the designated area of injury. In less than 30 seconds, the area goes into thermal shock which activates the immune and hormone systems. The blood vessels dilate, which sends blood and oxygen rushing to the injury. The extreme cold sends adrenaline and B-Endorphins rushing in, and they are a natural painkiller. Muscles relax and swelling reduces. Mobility is improved and rehabilitation is accelerated.
Sports massage is often used to treat a specific type of discomfort or injury that an athlete is suffering from. It can be the shoulder in a golfer or tight hamstrings in runners. Sports massages are offered both before and after an athletic performance. They can also be used to keep the athlete at the optimal level of performance and can be used in rehabilitation when there has been an injury. A sports massage can help you to perform even if you aren't a world-class athlete.
It is hard to play any kind of sport and not sustain injuries. It can just be a wrong move, and suddenly you're in terrible back pain. When this happens, don't hesitate to make an appointment and get your spine back into alignment. Gentle pressure can get your vertebrae back where they belong, and you back to your normal pastimes.
Suffering with knee pain can diminish your quality of life. At Nesnick Total Health, Dr. Nesnick provides knee decompression to get you back on your feet.
