Health Benefits of Sports Rehabilitation

Sports rehabilitation therapy at Fox Integrated Healthcare offers a variety of benefits for injured and dysfunctional areas of your musculoskeletal system, including:

Improved Muscle & Joint Function
Sports rehabilitation therapy is designed to decrease pain, stiffness and inflammation, while increasing flexibility, range of motion, strength and muscular conditioning. As your tissues heal and your body gradually grows stronger, your muscles and joints steadily improve their ability to function.

Pain and Inflammation Relief
When your soft tissues or joints experience trauma, your body activates inflammatory mechanisms to begin the natural healing process. Both trauma and inflammation produce varying degrees of discomfort, pain and stiffness that can make routine movements highly uncomfortable. Sports rehabilitation includes a variety of therapies designed to reduce inflammation and accelerate healing, which can have a profoundly positive effect on overall pain levels.

Strengthening of Weakened or Atrophied Muscle Tissue
In most cases, when you sustain a sports-related injury, you must rest the injured area to allow healing to occur. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, you may be required to rest for extended periods of time, during which your muscles gradually lose strength and size. Sports rehabilitation helps strengthen tissues that have weakened or shrunk as a result of minimal use, which, over time, facilitates and improves overall physical performance.

What to Expect With Sports Rehabilitation

If you’ve suffered an activity- or sports-related injury, our team of chiropractors — Dr. Derek Fox, Dr. Audrey Kenyon-Fox — are ready to get you on the road to recovery. At Fox Integrated Healthcare, the first step in our process is a brief consultation, so we can get to know you and learn about your unique concerns and needs.

If you’re a candidate for treatment, we’ll guide through a comprehensive physical exam, during which we’ll perform a series of diagnostic evaluations to determine the extent of your injury and define the treatments that will serve you best. We’ll then discuss the results of your evaluation with you and recommend a custom-designed rehabilitative program designed to promote healing, restore normal functioning and improve your physical performance.

With any sports-related injury, your body sustains considerable force, which can shift your musculoskeletal system out of its normal, healthy alignment. Depending on the type and severity of your injury, we may employ various treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, Kinesio Taping® and muscle strengthening, among others. These therapies work synergistically to relieve discomfort, restore musculoskeletal balance, heal trauma, support soft tissue function and restore normal mobility.

Sports Rehabilitation: Frequently Asked Questions

Your treatment frequency and duration will depend on your specific condition and your body’s response to treatment. During your evaluation, your chiropractor will explain your individualized care plan, which will detail the recommended number of treatments to achieve successful rehabilitation.

When you’re very active and have experienced previous injuries, flare-ups are quite common. At Fox Integrated Healthcare, we take a holistic approach to overall health and well-being because we know the human body is constantly moving, changing and adapting to its environment. To encourage long-term musculoskeletal health, we recommend ongoing maintenance care to keep your body in top form. If you ever experience a flare-up, our team is always here to help your body heal. We may recommend that you return for additional rehabilitation therapy or modify your daily activities.
