Chiropractic Care in Freehold for Fitness Injuries
Sprains, strains, muscle pulls and tendonitis are some of the most common physical fitness injuries experienced when participating in physical activities and exercise. Chiropractic care helps you recover from your fitness injury faster than traditional and home remedies.
A thorough examination allows our chiropractor in Freehold to determine the extent of the injury and associated loss of motion and strength. From there, he will recommend a course of treatment that will provide pain relief and help you regain your strength and flexibility. Treatment may include manual and mechanical chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and acupuncture, as well as a visit with our physical therapist in Freehold. The goal is to find the right combination of holistic treatments to reduce your need for pain medications and facilitate natural healing.
If you are not currently suffering from an acute injury, chiropractic care may still benefit your fitness routine. The fact is, when your spine is aligned your vertebrae, muscles, nerves, and related ligaments and tendons are able to work together as they should. The benefits of proper alignment are bountiful, and include a stronger back as well as greater flexibility.
Physical Therapy in Freehold
One of the worst side effects of a fitness injury, aside from the pain, is the instant loss of strength in the area. This can limit your daily activities, prevent you from participating in your favorite sports, and discourage your fitness activities because you feel like you’re starting over with that particular part of your body. Physical therapy in Freehold can help you recover from your sports injury by retraining your muscles and improving the strength and flexibility of the injured area.
Our physical therapist in Freehold is in constant communication with our chiropractor so that the therapies complement each and result in a better outcome. Most of our patients experience pain relief after their first visit. This is because our chiropractor in Freehold uses non-invasive techniques to realign the joints in the extremities and back.
To further this treatment, our physical therapist utilizes various exercises and exercise routines to help you regain the strength lost at the time of the injury. These physical therapy exercises typically include body-weight or light weight strength training, stretching and range of motion exercises.
