Dr. Rocco Santoro Specializes in Treating Athletes with Advanced, Non-Surgical Therapies
If you’re an athlete, you understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help you heal faster when you’ve suffered sports injuries and also help to prevent them.
Activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. Dr. Rocco Santoro and his team of medical professionals will work with many amateur athletes in Linwood and surrounding areas of New Jersey for optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately injuries occur, but with chiropractic for sports injuries, clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
A sports injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from poor technique or lead to poor technique when an individual athlete overcompensates for an injury favoring one side of his or her body or one position. Sports injuries also lead to secondary pains and problems. Our sports chiropractors treat not just the specific location of pain, but the areas radiating out from it as well.
Sports Injuries Can Cause Further Injuries if Not Treated Correctly
Chiropractors can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Santoro Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our trained staff will perform a full evaluation and possibly x-rays which are available directly in our office. We will construct a treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, chiropractors treat and can help prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees, ankles and more. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury. If you’re experiencing pain from a sports injury, consider seeing a chiropractor. You may want to schedule regular check-ups to prevent injuries and to keep your body performing properly.
