Chiropractic For Sports Injuries
Sports Chiropractor in Chesapeake, Virginia: Activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. Dr. Marco Accordo works with amateur through professional athletes in Chesapeake, VA and the surrounding areas for optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately injuries occur, but with chiropractic for sports injuries, clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
A sports injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from poor technique or can lead to poor technique when an individual overcompensates and favors one side or one position. Sports injuries also lead to secondary pains and problems. Dr. Accordo treats not just the specific location of pain but the areas radiating out from it as well.
Sports injuries can often be prevented. Dr. Accordo helps his patients prevent injury by teaching proper conditioning, warm-up, and cool-down techniques for each sport or exercise activity.
Extremity adjusting is when a chiropractor adjusts the joints of the body aside from the spine. Dr. Marco Accordo, DC is uniquely qualified in extremity adjusting and in fact, works with many athletes and even the Navy SEALs during their tactical training. Extremity adjusting is extremely beneficial in helping shoulder issues, tennis elbow, runner’s knee and other sports injuries. The goal of extremity adjusting is to establish a treatment plan and co-ordinate it with the treatment of the spine.
Cold laser therapy utilizes infrared light to stimulate cells and aid in the healing process. The reduction of inflammation during the cold laser treatment provides for amazing results in the alleviation of chronic and acute pain suffered from sports injuries. In conjunction with chiropractic, cold laser therapy is a valuable treatment therapy for amateur and professional athletes alike.
At Accordo Chiropractic, we use massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic and extremity adjustments. During your massage therapy sessions, we seek to improve circulation in order to decrease the healing time from sports injury.
