Being an athlete, you are aware of the demands regarding running, jumping or even tackling and the risks involved. The practice of most sports, therefore and unfortunately, implies traumatic forces like hyperflexion or hyperextension, forceful impacts or strenuous repetitive movements leading to body injuries such as tears, strains or even sprains. At Orewa Chiropractic, we can help you to treat and prevent them, in the back and neck or limbs including shoulders, hips, knees or ankles.
Chiropractors can help and prevent sport injuries. After a thorough examination, we assess the degree of damage due to the injury. We elaborate then a plan following international protocol and a strategy to recover and return on the field.
We adjust not on bones being out-of-place but, joints, spine segments included, which are malfunctioning due to a strain or sprain. The aim is to enhance their function, eliminating the swelling and relieve pain. We restore or enhance the joint and muscles function, reducing any inflammation and assisting the process of healing. The time of healing and recovery is so reduced and the tissue injured recover the full potential including its elasticity. The techniques that we utilise are mobilising joints, decreasing muscle and tendon tensions, improving flexibility and strength and increasing the proprioception (the balance) of the body.
We can also help you to prevent injuries, even recurrent. Before joining a new exercise program at a gym or during a regular yearly visit, we assess joints, spine and balance and treat tensions and imbalance so that joints and muscles are able to work with their full capacity of strength and mobility, being less prone to future injury and enhance performance.
At Orewa Chiropractic, we have treated athletes from various horizons, amateurs or professionals, even at an international level with debilitating injuries or just to maximise the athletic performance.
