As a former professional hockey player, Dr. Aaron Cain understands that participating in sports not only promotes a healthy lifestyle, but unfortunately, it can also lead to strains, sprains, and stress on different parts of the body. Fortunately, seeing a chiropractor can help you when you’ve suffered sports injuries and also help to prevent them.
At Fish Creek Chiropractic, Dr. Cain and his team know just how painful and difficult it can be to suffer from injuries sustained doing physical activities, such as playing sports, hiking and running. Dr. Cain has decades of experience and is equipped with techniques and instruments to address a full range of sports-related injuries in a safe and natural way.
Why Choose a Sports Chiropractor?
Sports injuries often result from forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training, and inadequate warm-up. As a trusted choice for world-class athletes, chiropractic care provides pain relief, promotes healing, and enhances performance. NFL teams, PGA golfers, NBA, MLB, and NHL teams all rely on chiropractic care for injury prevention and improved athletic performance.
“Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better,” says Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback. Discover why elite athletes choose chiropractic care and experience its benefits firsthand.
Dr. Cain specializes in spine adjustments that restore alignment and balance, relieving tension in the body. By optimizing spinal function, chiropractic treatment improves overall body performance. Studies have shown a 6.12% performance increase in athletes receiving chiropractic care, along with a 30% improvement in eye-hand coordination.
Effective Treatment for Common Sports Injuries
Trust Dr. Cain to provide comprehensive chiropractic care for common sports injuries, including:
Neck injuries, such as whiplash, occur when the neck is quickly and forcefully pushed forwards or backward in a whipping motion. Contact sports should be approached carefully simply because there is a higher risk for whiplash. Damage to the spine around the neck region can cause inflammation, which can result in pain and limited range of motion. Dr. Cain uses gentle Chiropractic adjustments to help restore the neck back to its proper form.
Pinched nerve due to spine injury sustained from sporting activities can be painful. Dr. Cain has decades of experience providing chiropractic adjustment of the spine to relieve pressure on the nerve, which alleviates pain and allows the body to function better. Sadly, many patients suffer from pain for a prolonged period of time, when chiropractic care could have helped with their pain sooner.
A muscle strain, often referred to as a pulled muscle, occurs when a muscle is suddenly pulled or twisted, resulting in a tiny tear in the muscle. Pulled muscles happen more easily around dysfunctional joints. When joints are moving properly, there’s less strain on the muscle, especially during physical activity, and it’s less likely to strain or tear.
Chiropractic care can help athletes at all levels achieve optimal performance and recover from a sports-related injury.
