If you're active and enjoy playing sports, it's inevitable that you'll experience an injury at some point. Getting treatment sooner rather than later is important when it comes to recovering from sports injuries, as issues left untreated can lead to ongoing problems. At Front Range Sports Medicine in Castle Rock, we would like to explore what you need to know about how chiropractic care can support the healing process.
Sports Injury Treatment and Chiropractic Care
Sports injuries are common and often affect the joints. While soft tissue injuries like bruising will often heal on their own, problems that involve the spine and other joints typically need chiropractic care to fully heal. When you receive chiropractic care for your injury, you can rest assured that our team will treat the root cause of the issue, rather than simply masking the symptoms.
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
When you come in for your first appointment, our team will ask you to fill out a history form, allowing us to learn more about how we can best serve your needs. Next, you'll meet with our chiropractor, who will ask you further questions about what you hope to achieve by receiving chiropractic care.
Our chiropractor may have a look at your injury before deciding whether chiropractic care is the right fit for your injury. If you and our chiropractor agree that chiropractic treatment is the right fit for your needs, you may receive your first adjustment immediately after your consultation.
Your chiropractor and other members of your care team will give you instructions that will help further your healing. This may include lifestyle and nutritional guidance. You'll also discuss how often you need to come in for chiropractic treatment to heal your injury as quickly as possible.
If you have questions about your treatment, we encourage you to reach out to us, even if it's between your scheduled appointments. Our team is here to support you as you recover from your injury, and we want to get you back on the court, field, or trail as soon as possible.
