Sports injuries treatment in Atlanta commonly treats conditions related to strains and sprains that are sustained through playing sports. These conditions are caused by tearing or overstretching ligaments, known as a sprain, or a tear or injury to the muscle which is known as a strain. However, we routinely see patients that have suffered arthritis, fractures, joint replacements as well as generalized pain.

A pain management program is the first step in every rehabilitation process. The doctor, or his or her assistant, delivers treatment through methods such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, high power high power intensity laser therapy and thermal application using heat or ice.

High Power High Power Laser therapy is one of the best and most effective treatment protocol for any injuries and treatment.

Ultrasound is used to boost circulation to injured areas so that the healing process can be sped up. This method also reduces the swelling and pain that are associated with the injury. In addition, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, or TENS, can easily relieve pain by transmitting electric signals that go deep into the muscles.

4 Common Sports Related Injuries and How LeReve Spinal Care can help
Sports rehabilitation depends greatly on the patient using the appropriate stretches and exercises that work to extend the muscles back to their regular lengths. By doing this, motion is restored and pain is reduced. Exercise programs involve flexibility, strength, balance and endurance in order to ensure that the patient returns to peak performance. Functional exercises are then used to enhance ability and are specifically delivered according to the type of sports the patient is involved in.

Your athletic trainer is an integral part of your healing and repair process, and can often assist you in preventing future injuries. They are also responsible for the immediate intervention when an injury occurs. Many sports teams engage massage therapists that restore movement through manual techniques as well as reduce the pain felt during regular activity.

Sports rehabilitation benefits greatly from chiropractic components to the treatment plans. A chiropractor is a physician trained to diagnose, treat and prevent issues related to the spine and musculoskeletal system using specialized techniques. Chiropractors are often trained in proper techniques relating to stretching and exercise.

Proper rehabilitation begins with a proper diagnosis of the injury, followed by treatment throughout the entire recovery process. Pain relief and the optimization of muscle length are the key components to sports rehabilitation, and a complete rehab program serves to restore effective, pain-free motion related to sports.
