Sports Injury in Orange CA

knee pain

Orange CA chiropractor, Dr. Stephen Iversen, uses modern equipment, advanced technology and a combination of therapies to treat sports injuries, help with pain and prevent injuries from occurring again in the future. Dr. Iversen has had great success in treating numerous professional athletes as well as weekend warriors. Athletes who participate in sports and other physical activity are more prone to injury due to an increased strain of the muscles and joints, as well as physical contact, which can lead to shoulder injury, back injury or neck injury.

Although a sports injury is caused by overexerting the muscle joints, tendons or ligaments during an activity - perhaps do t over-training or failing to properly stretch and warm up prior to activity - there are many specific types of sports injury that can occur. A rotator cuff injury, for example, is a very common shoulder injury seen in athletes, because the shoulder joint is one of the most mobile in the entire body. Although many people associate a rotator cuff injury with the separation of the tendons from the bones, there are many other ways it can become injured, such as through joint stiffness, which can lead a loss of motion and inflammation, known as frozen shoulder.

Ankle injuries are also common among athletes, because many sports require running, landing or jumping on the feet with heavy impact. Approximately one in every three ankle injuries is a sprain that could be as minor as an overstretched ligament or as serious as a ligament rupture. Ankle sprains can cause swelling, pain and difficulty walking. Dr. Iversen provides a holistic form of treatment to promote effective healing so there is a less likely chance that injury will reoccur.

Physical Therapy & Massage Therapy Treats Sports Injury

Here at Back in Line Chiropractic Rehab Center, Dr. Iversen is experienced in diagnosing, treating and preventing sports injury, as well as with offering help for back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines that may be associated with a specific condition. Dr. Iversen starts with a complete consultation and x-ray that helps identify the cause of your injury and determining what type of injury you have. Dr. Iversen then determines the most effective way of treating your injury - a plan that often involves manual chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy and massage therapy.

We use chiropractic care - a series of gentle manipulations of the spine - to treat spinal subluxations and herniated discs that may be causing neck pain and back pain. When the spacing of the vertebrae and discs becomes interrupted, it can place pressure on the nerves in the spine, causing chronic neck and back pain. Over time, chiropractic adjustments can help realign the discs and vertebrae, reducing pressure on the nerves, increasing motion range and ultimately reducing or eliminating back and neck pain.

Dr. Iversen also emphasizes physical therapy during the rehabilitation process. Physical therapy helps facilitate the healing that occurs in the chiropractic office by sing customized exercises and movements to help with muscle mobility and prevent muscle stiffness. The exercises are performed in-office, as well as at home in between visits to ensure a fast recovery.

Once Dr. Iversen has identified and treated the source of your neck pain, extremity pain and back pain, he believes that prevention is key to keeping the body healthy for sports activity. Regular visits to our office for adjustments and massage can help keep the muscles loose and the spine healthy, which means fewer injuries and pain, headaches and migraines.
