Sports Injury Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy
The majority of sports related injuries involve a combination of one or more of the following: muscle, ligament, cartilage and joint. The chiropractors aim to address some of these areas through spinal manipulation and mobilization of the joints. The treatment may also look at the prevention of injury and the optimization of athletic performance for the individual. Although it is important to treat an injury when it arises, it is vital that we understand why the problem occurred in the first place so that we can prevent the injury from occurring again. It is at this point that the biokineticist will take over treatment in order to strengthen the body in order to prevent further injury. Specific testing can be done to look at muscle strength and flexibility on both sides of the body and then to correct any imbalances found. State of the art CYBEX technology is also used at our facility to attain precise measurements and rehabilitation protocols.
