Sports Injury Rehabilitation at Corefit Chiropractic
Sports Chiropractic in Allentown, PA: Dr. Mark Walter
Sports Chiropractor, Sports Injury Rehab, Sports Performance & Recovery
Sports activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. Dr. Mark Walter is a certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). He works with amateur through professional athletes for optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately injuries occur and through rehabilitative care, clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
An injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from or lead to poor technique when an athlete overcompensates for an injury, favoring one side of the body or one position. Sports injuries can lead to secondary issues if not cared for and corrected. An athlete will function and perform their best when limitations are removed.
If left untreated, sports injuries can lead to chronic issues
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Walter treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decrease inflammation and allow the nervous system to function optimally.
We can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At CoreFit Chiropractic, Dr. Walter will perform a full evaluation. He will construct a customized treatment plan to get athletes feeling their best and back to doing what they love.
Myofasical Release Therapy for sports injuries
Myofacial Release is a treatment modality directed at releasing the restrictions, tension and adhesions in the myofascial system that encompasses the entire body. Tightness restrictions and adhesions can occur immediately following an acute injury or build over time in a chronic pain syndrome or postural distortion pattern. By releasing the myofascial restriction, restoration of normal joint and muscle function results in reduced pain and a return of normal function to the affected body part.
