The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. Chiropractic care can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Regular visits will promote quicker recovery after games and training as well as better balance and overall performance.
On your initial visit, Dr. Lipkin will ask you questions about your health and exercise routine. In examination, he will review your posture, spine and balance. He will also examine the affected regions of your back, extremities, tendons, ligaments and joints.
Using this information, Dr. Lipkin will be able to determine what treatment would benefit you. The two most common techniques are spinal manipulation and spinal mobilization followed by appropriate exercise and therapies.
