Nagging injuries keep you from participating the sports you love
We have treatment options for a sports injury that are beneficial to everyone from amateur and professional athletes to gym-goers and lovers of everyday physical activity. Injuries are bound to occur, so paying careful attention to these injuries is key. You know your body-if something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't.
The vast majority of sports injuries are strains and sprains, which make up some 65 percent of athletic injuries treated. These injuries are typically the result of an athlete suffering a sudden blow, fall, or twist that forces joint out of their typical position. This sudden force causes the joints to tear or overstretch. For the athlete, this means swelling, pain, tenderness, and limited mobility.
Most treatments for sports injuries involve the use of a hot laser, designed to reduce trauma in these types of situations. The use of laser treatments benefits the athlete in a variety of ways, including a decrease in pain and inflammation, an increase in blood flow and recovery time, reduced need for expensive prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and anti-inflammatories, and increased growth of newer, healthier tissue. These benefits come into play whenever athletes experience a sports injury and are useful for many of the most common injuries, including tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, runner's knee, stress fractures, shin splints, and shoulder injury.
Our laser treatments can be applied swiftly shortly after an injury occurs. The non-invasive nature of these treatments, coupled with the many benefits trumps the traditional treatments offered by many specialists that can be ineffective and expensive. This allows you to get back to your athletic activity as quickly as possible, without having to undergo the same amount of rehabilitation involved in other methods. A consultation with us gives you this advantage, which in hand gives you an advantage over your competitors. Since most injuries are unavoidable, it's best to treat them seriously so that you can begin the process of overcoming them. We're equipped to help you overcome these injuries and get back to the action that you enjoy.
