Sports Injury and Performance Q&A

What are some common sports injuries?

Being active is an essential part of achieving and maintaining optimal health and wellness. However, fitness and athletic pursuits can also put a great deal of strain on your body.

Sports injuries occur when your body is engaged in physical activity. The term is used to describe a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries, not just those that involve sports.

Some of the more common types of sports injury include:

  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle tears or strains
  • Achilles tendon damage
  • Shin splints
  • Joint dislocation

Many of these issues will resolve after a period of self-care. When discomfort, swelling, or stiffness persists for more than a few days, however, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Troy.

How can chiropractic care help with sports injuries?

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat problems in your spine and other joints. In addition to his chiropractic training, Dr. Troy has pursued additional education and hands-on skill-building in the field of sports health science.

If you suffer a sports injury Dr. Troy begins by determining which areas of your body are affected and whether any imbalance present could complicate your recovery process. Spinal adjustment is just one of the many therapies that can help. Joint manipulation and mobilization can also address pain and inflammation in the area of injury.

Your treatment path is created to suit your exact set of needs and will change as your body responds to treatment. Additional therapeutic tools may integrate heat/cold, electric stimulation, or lymphatic massage.  

How can I enhance my physical performance?

Whether you’re a professional athlete looking to maximize performance on the field or a fitness enthusiast hoping to top a few personal bests, working with Dr. Troy can help you clearly define and reach your performance goals. That process begins with a comprehensive physical evaluation and a discussion of your health history and lifestyle.

Dr. Troy has extensive experience leveraging the power of nutritional supplementation and diet to optimize health and wellness. He reviews your current nutrition profile and creates a customized plan to ensure your body gets exactly what it needs to thrive.

The combination of top-quality chiropractic care and advanced nutritional supplementation can help you break through fitness and performance barriers. If you’re ready to reach your true potential, schedule an appointment today using the easy online tool or by phoning the office.
