The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can be painful and disruptive, but you don’t have to resort to surgery or prescription medication. Rockefeller Health & Medical proudly offers sports chiropractic services in Rockefeller Center. Our experienced chiropractor is highly trained in treating sports-related injuries in east, west, or Midtown Manhattan, NYC, without requiring invasive procedures or medication. Let’s take a look at what our chiropractor can do for you and your sports injuries.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
A chiropractor is a healthcare professional specializing in diagnosing and treating neuromusculoskeletal issues, such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more. A sports chiropractor has additional training and experience in treating muscle sprains, strains, joint misalignments, and other common soft tissue injuries in athletes. Our sports chiropractor typically uses manual adjustments, massage therapy techniques, electrical stimulation therapy (also known as e-stim), ultrasound therapy, laser therapy, and other modalities to help restore mobility and reduce pain in injured areas.
What Sports Injuries Does a Chiropractor Treat?
Our sports chiropractor can treat a wide range of sports-related injuries, including ankle sprains/strains; shoulder dislocations; knee ligament tears; hip flexor strains; Achilles tendonitis; plantar fasciitis; rotator cuff tears; tennis elbow; whiplash from car accidents or falls; sciatica nerve pain; golfer’s elbow; concussions/traumatic brain injury (TBI); and more. We also provide pre-participation evaluations before beginning any athletic activity and post-injury assessments to ensure our patients get back on their feet quickly.
No Surgery or Prescription Meds Needed
Our goal is to provide effective relief from pain without needing surgery or prescription medications whenever possible. We understand that many people do not want to take medications due to potential side effects or simply because they prefer natural remedies to pharmaceutical drugs. That’s why we focus on providing comprehensive care plans tailored to each patient's individual needs so they can achieve their health goals without relying on potentially dangerous surgical procedures or prescription medications.
