Do have a sports injury such as a rotator cuff tear or frozen shoulder? Whether you are a professional athlete or simply an active individual, Zaker Chiropractic offers treatment for all types of sports injuries, from common sprains and strains, to conditions like tennis/golf elbow and plantar fasciitis.
Playing sports and participating in various physical activities are great ways to burn calories, increase strength and stay active. Unfortunately, those same activities can also lead to sports injuries. Our sports injury doctors can diagnose and treat your musculoskeletal sports injuries to get you back on track.
Symptoms of a sports injury can include bruising, inflammation, loss of range of motion, pain, swelling and more. Some of the most common injuries we treat here in at our 3 sports injury clinic locations in South Bay include:
We are familiar with treating all types of injuries from back pain to tendonitis. The goal of our treatment options is to heal your injuries so that you can quickly return to playing the sports you love.
If you are an athlete or an avid exerciser, you have probably experienced a sprain or a strain. A sprain occurs when a ligament has been stretched outside of its useful range of motion and/or torn. A strain refers to the overextension injury of a muscle or tendon.
Tendonitis is a repetitive motion injury of one or more tendons. It causes inflammation, pain and loss of range of motion. In severe cases, the tendon may even have tiny tears in it. Tendonitis injuries include runner's knee, tennis, golfer's and little leaguer elbow, Achilles tendonitis and frozen shoulder.
Our integrated sports rehabilitation team will run a series of tests and other diagnostics to determine which treatments make sense for you. From physical rehabilitation or cryotherapy, we have everything you need to heal quicker, restore mobility and live injury free.
Chiropractic adjustments can be used on the vertebrae in the back and on the extremity joints. An injury of the back or joints can cause misalignments, which can lead to further injury due to improper joint movement. By pushing the joints back into their proper positions, our chiropractor is helping to reduce your pain, lower inflammation and restore proper joint function.
It can take several months to heal from a ligament, tendon, or muscle injury. However, there is a new treatment option to help relieve pain and speed up the rate of healing. Cryotherapy, which literally means “cold therapy,” is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes.
To help get you back on the field faster, we may recommend physical therapy, which involves performing targeted exercises in order to restore strength, mobility and flexibility. It also helps keep you active while you are in recovery.
Our one-on one strengthening sessions will be tailored toward your diagnosed injury and specific needs. One of our experienced personal trainers will develop a comprehensive, personal workout program that is right for you. Our trainers work directly with sports injury doctors in the area to help improve muscle imbalances and postural imperfections.
Massage therapy helps relax the muscles while improving flexibility and range of motion. It also helps lower feelings of stress and anxiety while improving circulation. When it is combined with other therapies and techniques, individuals typically experience a dramatic reduction in pain and improved recovery times.
