Sports Injuries are common, not just among professional athletes but anyone with an active lifestyle. Sports related injuries can vary, you can suffer a sports injury in the neck, back, shoulder, knee or ankle, to name a few areas. Most people around you would probably recommend painkillers and extensive allopathic care (ie. injections or surgery), but the experts of rehabFX humbly wish to differ!
We are a leading Austin clinic for finding a soccer chiropractor, where we focus on the actual cause of the pain and injury and use the basics of chiropractic care for healing. Sports injuries can impact the performance of the athlete, but the solutions are not limited to just drugs and surgery. Remember, when collegiate and professional athletes suffer an injury, if they can continue playing with that injury they will opt for conservative treatment as surgery will keep them on the sidelines longer and some medications will not allow them to pass a urinalysis test. The human body has the capability to heal itself when the correct approach and right tools are used. Our experts will create the environment for your body to heal faster, without taking those painkillers.
No matter whether you are looking for help with general injuries or need to find a football chiropractor, we are here to offer our assistance. We work with patients using therapies such as ARPWave therapy. New York Jets wide receiver, Brandon Marshall has appeared on the NFL Network stating he uses ARPWave extensively as it is an integral part of his daily regimen to recover and remain injury free. Atlanta Falcons defensive end, Dwight Freeney has used ARPWave in the past to recover from a serious career ending injury and surgery, just like Adrian Peterson, running back for the Minnesota Vikings when he tore his ACL, he also used ARPWave to return to the football field quickly. Our experts will offer a customized plan for treatment, whether it includes ARPWave, cold laser therapy or non-surgical spinal decompression, so you can achieve maximum benefit in the least amount of time, returning you quickly to your sport of choice.
Also, our running chiropractor will focus on proper alignment and balance, so that the typical running injuries(ie. runner’s knee, plantar fasciitis or IT Band Syndrome) can be avoided. With several of our patients we perform radiographic bone length studies to make sure your legs and hips are the same length. This is considered the gold standard in the medical literature, dating back to 1924. If there is a leg length discrepancy, we can help you with that. Running is such an important part of most, if not all sports. Making sure your feet are biomechanically correct is imperative to your performance. This includes shock absorption, shock attenuation, properly supporting all 3 arches in the foot (yes, there are 3!) and making sure the 26 bones in each foot is doing its job properly. We achieve this by using a laser foot scanner that is accurate to within 300 microns, the width of 2 hairs on your head, to fit you with individualized orthotics. Apart from basic chiropractic, sports injury treatments might include:
