Some of the most common sports injuries we treat at Human Integrated Performance are separated shoulders, chronic ankle sprains, and knee pain. If you are an athlete and suffer an injury, we have the team to get you back! Ankle sprains are common in sports with running & jumping, such as soccer, basketball, or volleyball. Left untreated these injuries can cause weakness in the surrounding muscles, making ankle sprains more common. The best time to get an ankle sprain treated is right away. Techniques such as lymphatic drainage and kinesiotaping can help reduce the swelling & bruising quicker than rest alone. It is also important to keep the joint moving to recover quicker. Ice is always a must with swollen/bruised ankles. Our expertise helps speed up initial recovery and longevity long-term.
Depending on where your injury is, you will get a focused massage-related therapy that is appropriate for that part of your body. The therapeutic session will not only relieve your pain, but it will also help you to recover quickly. Retain your range of movement and flexibility with regular treatment.
Yes, if you have a favourite massage therapist, you can usually ask for them when you make an appointment. It is best to call ahead of time and book an appointment with the specific therapist you want. This ensures that they will be available when you need them.
You can exercise right after seeing a chiropractor but keep in mind that your body might be hypermobile. For example, if you are doing sprints after an adjustment on your hips, your joints will be hypermobile. After 24 hours, you should be good to return to vigorous exercise, but keep it to low-impact exercise in the first 24 hours.
You should go to a chiropractor when you are experiencing joint pains, after a fall, after a motor vehicle accident, throwing out your back, etc. If you wait too long, it can be challenging to pinpoint the damage and affect your recovery time. A chiropractor is great for treating your neck, low back pain, or even knee and hip pain. Chiropractors can also help improve the function of your body’s core muscles which allow you to exercise more efficiently, prevent injuries from occurring and enhance athletic performance.
