Use Chiropractic Treatment After Athletic Injury

  • Athletic Injury Treatments Preventative

The American Chiropractic Association (APA) estimates that chiropractors treat about 35 million Americans each year. This practice has become a common way for people to seek pain treatment without taking drugs. Athletic Injury makes up a large portion of those requiring treatment.

Bond Thomas Chiropractic of St. Petersburg, Florida specializes in an array of services. Their trained professionals aim to provide quality treatment coupled with friendly service and affordable prices. They treat people of all ages, and even accept most insurance plans.

The professionals of Bond Thomas are able to treat strains, sprains, tendinitis, and more. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments can often be twisted or overextended. Whether just a few fibers have been torn, or there’s a severe tear – a doctor is able to perform palpitations on the affected area once swelling has gone down. Tendinitis can be treated with trigger point therapy and specialized stretches. This should help overused joints and inflamed tendons.

These athletic treatments provide long-term solutions to pain – something that painkillers can’t do. Approximately 90% of all world-class athletes seek chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase performance. Though injury treatment is important, preventative measures are every bit as necessary. Seeing a chiropractor regularly can help reduce the chance of injury. Call Bond Thomas Chiropractic with any athletic injury you might experience at 727-522-1900 in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida to set up your first appointment today!

Chiropractic Care for Athletes with Sports Injuries

If you’re an athlete in St. Petersburg, you know how frustrating sports injuries can be. They throw off your training schedule and can even sideline you for the rest of the season. As chiropractors, we understand your desire to return to your activity as quickly as possible, but proper care is necessary to get you there.

Prevent Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are distressing to the body and the mind of any St. Petersburg athlete, so you need to take preventative measures to protect yourself. You may be inclined to focus only on  your respective pastime, but we believe that a balanced exercise routine promotes overall vitality. Regardless of your activity, it’s important to incorporate strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and plenty of stretching to increase flexibility. Other prevention methods include:

  • Wearing protective gear specific to your pastime.
  • Wearing supportive footwear that absorbs shock.
  • Warming up before a workout.
  • Stretching beforehand.
  • Preparing for activities accordingly.
  • Stopping when you’re fatigued.
  • Cooling down afterward.

A quick warm-up will increase your blood flow and improve your flexibility, which will make stretching easier. If you’re a runner, opt for softer surfaces like grass or a track. Concrete and asphalt are hard on your muscles and joints. Too many of our St. Petersburg patients come to us because they pushed themselves too hard, so don’t overdo it. Same goes for working through the pain. This doesn’t make you tougher. It will only make things worse. Knowing your body’s limits will help with preventing sports injuries.
