Dr. Robinson's approach to treating sports injuries is different from traditional medical care. While many doctors prescribe painkillers or recommend invasive surgery, Dr. Robinson believes there is a better, more effective way. His treatments focus on the underlying cause for your injury. Oftentimes, knee pain, neck pain, shoulder pain or back pain is symptomatic of a larger problem with the musculoskeletal system. An old injury that never properly healed or repeated wear and tear on the body can cause a misalignment of the musculoskeletal system. A disc in your spine, for example, may compress nearby nerves, leading to pain in other parts of the body. This is why diagnosing and treating the underlying cause for your injury is absolutely critical. Until this misalignment is corrected, you will continue to be at risk for injury and pain.
One of the most common sports injuries is a strain or sprain to the soft tissues. Damage to the ligaments, tendons or muscles can cause inflammation and pain. Without immediate treatment, these injuries cannot properly heal. Even if the pain subsides, your body may compensate for the injury by shifting pressure or weight to a different body part, which can lead to new injuries and pain. For example, an improperly healed ankle injury may ultimately lead to a knee injury. If you are a runner or enjoy active sports like basketball and soccer, a knee injury can seriously affect you ability to be active. If you have sustained a sports injury, Dr. Robinson encourages you to seek immediate care from a chiropractor. This is essential to stopping the build-up of scar tissue (which can increase pain) and helping the body properly heal.
Dr. Robinson also provides treatment and pain relief for tennis elbow, also known as golfer's elbow. The repetitive motion of gripping a racquet or club can cause the tendons in the forearm to become inflamed, leading to chronic pain when gripping or holding an object. Chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy can relieve the pain and reduce the swelling.
Regular exercise is essential to well-being. If you have been injured or suffer from pain, however, it's natural to be concerned about starting to workout again. The last thing you want to do is aggravate an existing injury or cause a new one. Our chiropractor can help you safely get active with corrective care exercises. These exercises strengthen the core muscles, improve flexibility and safely restore a full range of movement to your body.
