Old Bridge Chiropractic Care Helps Sports Injuries Heal Quickly and Safely
Is pain from an untreated sports injury preventing you from being active? Without proper care, many common sports injuries - including tennis elbow or a strained muscle - fail to correctly heal, causing chronic back and neck pain. Our chiropractors, Dr. Peter Bufano and Dr. Arlene Kazio, have more than a decade of success helping Matawan, Aberdeen, Parlin, Sayerville, and South Amboy sports injury patients heal. If you are struggling with chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, or a restricted range of motion, then you've come to the right place!
Sports Injury Pain? Chiropractic Care Heals the Body
Old Bridge sports injury patients choose our wellness center because of our extensive experience and whole body approach to pain management. Dr. Kazio holds a postgraduate certification in sports injury and prevention, and Dr. Bufano also holds a certification in sports medicine. Our team puts the latest technology to work for our patients, combining chiropractic adjustments with massage therapy, corrective exercises and physical therapy. This comprehensive, whole body approach treats both pain symptoms and the underlying injury, helping the body heal quickly and safely.
Many of our patients suffer from a rotator cuff injury or lateral epicondylitis - a repetitive motion injury also known as "tennis elbow" or "golf elbow". Rotator cuff injuries and tennis elbow are caused by overuse. Damage to the ligaments can lead to inflammation of the joints and chronic pain. If you struggle with a repetitive motion injury, a chiropractor can help ease this pain. Many patients are surprised to learn that a misalignment in the neck or spine may be a contributing factor. This misalignment can cause overcompensation in the shoulders or elbow, leading to a repetitive motion injury. Restoring alignment, along with physical therapy treatments to relieve inflammation, can help the body heal itself. Corrective exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendon in your arm can also help. Our whole body approach helps alleviate pain while also correcting the underlying cause for your injury.
Many athletes also suffer from a herniated disc in the lower back. When this happens, the herniated disc may compress nearby nerves, causing inflammation, pressure and back pain. Additionally, a herniated disc in the upper cervical spine may cause headaches and migraines. Spinal adjustments can help relieve this pain by restoring proper alignment to the spine, which alleviates pressure on the nerves. Physical therapy and therapeutic massage can also help the muscles relax, relieving tension trapped deep inside the fascia. This provides immediate relief for back and neck pain.
Our Old Bridge physical therapist, Daniel Neissany, is certified in Kinesiotaping and McConnell Taping, two physical therapy treatments that provide support and stability for injured muscles during the healing process. Daniel is also certified in the Graston Technique, which uses instruments to precisely detect scar tissue and help safely mobilize the muscles. This treatment is especially effective in patients who continue to experience back or neck pain from old sports injuries that never properly healed.
If you are struggling with chronic pain, our Old Bridge chiropractor can help.
