Sports Injury

If you’ve sustained a sports injury that's impeding or halting your athletic performance, Dr. Jean Smith and the team at Cajun Chiropractic and Rehab in Youngsville, LA, offer sports injury chiropractic to help you heal.

Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

Sports injuries can be devastating to athletes. They can impede their performance or – at times – put a stop to it entirely. Once the injury heals, getting on track may take a long time, especially if they’ve had surgery or medication. Sports injury chiropractic with Dr. Smith and the team at Cajun Chiropractic and Rehab of Youngsville, LA, offers a different option to help you overcome injuries. Learn more below.

Experience Natural Healing

It’s not abnormal for an athlete to be told they need an invasive procedure to correct an injury, but this is often not the case. The human body is able to repair itself. At times, it has a difficult time doing this due to various restrictions, such as inflammation, repetitive damage to the soft tissues, misalignment, nerve compression, or disc issues.

When this is the case, chiropractic care can effectively remove the restriction blocking natural healing. Once that restriction is removed, the body can recover.

Heal Through a Variety of Techniques

Chiropractic care is a holistic practice, meaning that the individual is treated as a whole person – not just their symptoms. This involves combining several techniques to address the injury on multiple levels. Below are some examples of these techniques.

  • Spinal adjustments and manipulation: Everything from sports injuries to everyday life can lead to misalignment of the bones and joints. A misalignment can, in turn, lead to herniated discs, muscular tension, strains, nerve compression, and much more. Adjustments and manipulation restore proper alignment to relieve such issues.
  • Spinal decompression: Herniated discs are a common issue in athletes. They don’t always cause symptoms but can lead to nerve compression, restricted range of motion, and more. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine, which pulls herniated discs back into place.
  • Shockwave therapy: Shockwave therapy sends sound waves into the deep tissues. These waves help relieve tension, break up scar tissue and adhesions, stimulate tissue repair, improve blood flow, and increase range of motion.
  • Dry needling: Trigger points often develop along the fascia as tender knots that create pain and a restricted range of motion. Dry needling is a method used to break up trigger points, as well as address rotator cuff injuries.
