Roy A Logan Chiropractic Clinic can help you heal from your sports injuries so that you can get back in the game.
Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
Many individuals that participate in sports and exercise programs believe that when they get injured, they should apply the RICE method until their injury is healed. RICE stands for rest, ice, compression and elevation.
Right after you experience a sports injury, you should stop participating in the game or stop exercising. Further exercise of the area could result in more damage. You should apply ice and elevate the area in an attempt to decrease the swelling. However, these treatments should only be used for the first 24 to 48 hours. If your pain and swelling persist longer than 48 hours, it is time to make an appointment with our chiropractor for a thorough evaluation.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Roy A. Logan has been treating musculoskeletal sports injuries for years. He can recommend a treatment program to reduce your swelling and inflammation and heal your injuries faster than rest and ice alone.
Our chiropractor treats a wide range of musculoskeletal sports injuries in Austin.
These injuries can either be acute or chronic. Acute injuries happen suddenly. One minute you feel fine. The next minute you are in pain, holding the injured area and examining it for signs of injury.
Chronic injuries are characterized by pain and loss of range of motion that lasts longer than three months. The pain and inflammation usually increases when the area is used or exercised.
Our chiropractor Roy Logan can diagnose your injuries and recommend a natural treatment program to heal those injuries. We offer chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, lifestyle advice, corrective exercises and nutritional counseling for the healing of sports injuries.
Chiropractic adjustments are beneficial for reducing inflammation while restoring range of motion. These treatments involve locating misaligned vertebrae or extremity joints and pushing them back into alignment.
Massage therapy reduces muscle pain. It helps the muscles release lactic acid, and it improves circulation, which helps decrease recovery times.
Our lifestyle advice is designed to help you perform daily tasks like carrying groceries and mowing grass without reinjuring yourself. Accidentally re-injuring healing body parts can result in an increase in your recovery time.
Corrective exercises help you regain your lost strength. When muscles, ligaments and tendons are injured, they immediately lose their strength. If the strength and flexibility is not regained, you could be at risk for future injuries.
Our nutritional counseling is designed to help you eat foods that will fuel your body and help you heal. We may also recommend supplements to ensure that you are getting the right amounts of certain vitamins and minerals.
