As chiropractic care continues to gain traction in the mainstream medical scene, you’ve probably seen many of your favorite athletes speak about their experiences with alternative treatments for their injuries and pain – for a good reason!

As an ancient form of Chinese medicine, cupping has a variety of benefits for athletes at all levels, not just Olympic-level swimmers. Our chiropractor suctions specialized cups to the skin using the body’s natural heat. Doing this draws the blood that specific region, stimulating healing and assisting in the creation of new blood vessels. Cupping can be used to eliminate toxins in the body, relieve congestion and muscle tension, and improve overall circulation.
Our licensed massage therapist offers a variety of massage therapy options, including a specialized sports massage. These massages focus on treating aches in the soft tissue and pain from injuries related to training. The benefits of sports massage therapy are endless, including lowering blood pressure and heart rate for a more relaxed state, reducing muscle stiffness, and maximizing blood, oxygen, and nutrient flow throughout the body.
There’s never a bad time to receive a sports massage, but many athletes often choose three specific forms of massage therapy:
- Maintenance: Used as a regular part of the training routine. Maintenance massages assist athletes in reaching optimal performance while reducing pain and the chance of injury.
- Pre- and Post-Event: Before an event, a sports massage can enhance an athlete’s circulation for optimal performance. After an event, the massage can target specific regions of the body that are stressed and in pain, providing a reduction in pain and inflammation, as well as faster recovery time.
- Rehabilitation: In the event of unforeseen injuries or the unavoidable tears, cramping, and bruising in the muscle, rehabilitation massages help to reduce inflammation of the injured area and increase the projected recovery rate – getting you back out on the court or field quicker and better than ever.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is a science-based laser treatment that delivers low levels of light that penetrate deep into the tissue to heal from the inside out. The low-intensity laser is applied directly to the injured or pained part of the body to target the source of the issue. Cold laser therapy repairs tissue damage and reduces inflammation in the injured areas. This form of treatment is great for those experiencing shoulder pain, tennis elbow, strains, and sprains.
