Where to find sports injury treatment
A sports injury can cause serious damage to the musculoskeletal system. Even a single disk injury can lead to chronic back, neck, leg and shoulder pain. Unfortunately, traditional medical care only treats the symptoms of sports injuries. Our approach to treatment is different.
With every patient, we focus on identifying the underlying cause for an injury, such as a misalignment of the musculoskeletal system. Rather than relying on medication, Dr. Brett Thomas provides long-lasting pain relief through osteopathic adjustment.
One of the most common Orlando osteopathic sports injuries is a strain or sprain. Soft tissue damage to the ligaments, tendons and muscles can cause pain and inflammation. Without effective treatment, these sports injuries will not properly heal. The body will then compensate for the injury pain by adjusting its movements, which can lead to new injuries. If you have sustained a sports injury, immediate care from a chiropractor is essential to preventing the build up of scar tissue and additional damage to the musculoskeletal system.
Sports injury pain relief
Osteopathic adjustment is a safe and non-invasive treatment for restoring alignment to the spine that is especially effective when treating disk injuries. Dr. Thomas uses the manual Cox adjustment technique, the golden standard of chiropractic care, to treat disk injuries that cause low back pain, leg pain and shoulder pain.
