  • Warm Up & Cool Down
  • Use Correct Equipment

How We Help You After an Workout Injury Using Integrative Chiropractic Care?

Injuries may require more immediate attention than rest, ice, compression and elevation (R.I.C.E.), but that’s always a good starting point. A professional physician or chiropractor can aid immediately to help relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Chiropractic treatments can increase blood circulation to the area you injured for faster recovery, as well as align your bones correctly surrounding ligaments, tendons, and muscles. An adjustment will reduce unnecessary tension on the area you injured, increase the flexibility of the joints, and help support your body to work as a whole for a faster recovery.

We will also make sure to include other types of treatment you may need such as massage therapy, decompression therapy, or any other type of treatment we utilize in helping you get better.
