Sports Injury Treatment in Jacksonville
Getting involved in sports is a great way to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle. But, due to the repetitive motion and impact on their joints, athletes also risk injury. When these injuries happen, there are a number of ways to deal with them. One option for sports injury treatment is Beach Boulevard Chiropractic Massage Rehab. Sprains, stress fractures and tendinitis are all common sports injuries that need to be properly diagnosed and identified to get the proper treatments needed for a full recovery.
X-Rays and MRIs are common ways to make this diagnosis. In most cases, athletes get a good deal of advice along with pain medications, chiropractic treatment, cold and heat packs, elevation, joint manipulation, and good old fashioned rest. With so many things involved, sports injury treatment is often most effective when the whole person is looked at closely, as opposed to simply treating the injury or symptoms at hand.
Treating the Whole Athlete
When you visit Beach Boulevard Chiropractic for a sports injury, your condition will be evaluated to make sure that chiropractic care is appropriate for your specific situation. In many cases, chiropractic care can do a lot to relieve pain and is preferable to medications or many other treatments. But everyone is different, and Beach Boulevard Chiropractic is careful not to provide treatment that could aggravate an injury further.
Led by Dr. Brian Winkler, a well-respected Jacksonville chiropractor, we are committed to treating each patient individually, rather than just working to alleviate your discomfort. Nutritional and lifestyle counseling are considered to be just as important as the physical components of your chiropractic treatment. Not only does Dr. Winkler strive to get to the root of why the injury occurred in the first place, he offers advice on proper techniques that you can use to reduce the chance of a recurrence.
If you find yourself suffering from pain related to one or more types of sports injuries, contact Beach Boulevard Chiropractic Massage Rehab. Dr. Winkler will determine the best option for managing your injury and help you understand how to better prepare for your sport.
