Sports Medicine

Treats injuries in athletes and active individuals caused by working out too much, misusing equipment, falling, etc.

Sports medicine is an area of health care that deals with preventing, diagnosing, and treating injuries in athletes and active individuals.

Being physically active is good for your whole health. However, if you work out too much or misuse equipment, you may injure yourself. Athletes may also develop sports injuries from bad falls, poorly landed jumps, or high-impact tackles.

Sports medicine treats these types of injuries so you can get back to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible and reduce your risk of injuries in the future.

The team at Key Spine Care specializes in sports medicine, using conservative therapies to reduce pain, heal injuries, and restore function.

Common questions

Anyone with a sports injury needs sports medicine. The team at Key Spine Care treats all types of injuries, including:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Overuse injuries

You may also benefit from sports medicine at Key Spine Care if you want to prevent an injury, improve recovery following an intense workout, or boost your athletic performance. The team provides therapies that improve body function, flexibility, balance, strength, and your body mechanics.

The specifics of your sports medicine evaluation at Key Spine Care depend on the reason for your visit. However, you can expect a full-body evaluation. The team reviews your concerns and goals, asks about your usual workout routine, and goes over your eating habits.

They also ask about previous injuries and medical history and perform a physical exam. The board-certified chiropractic sports physician can diagnose injuries following a history and physical exam, but may order imaging tests to rule out a diagnosis.

The team at Key Spine Care customizes your sports medicine treatment plan based on your needs and goals. For a sports injury, the team focuses on providing healing therapies like laser therapy, physical therapy, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM).

To support recovery and help with athletic performance, the team may provide chiropractic care, an at-home exercise program, and nutrition therapy.

Chiropractic sports medicine focuses on your whole health, not just your injury.
