Chiropractor Wyckoff

Sports Injury Rehabilitation in Wyckoff, NJ: Athletes understand the countless demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can also aid in preventing them.

Dr. Ray Milazzo, D.C. has extensive knowledge in sports injury recovery. As a dedicated triathlete, Dr. Milazzo has personal experience in the toll that sports can take on the body. He is also trained and highly aware of what it takes to not only treat injuries from sports, but to practice proper prevention.

Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:

The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.

Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, it can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated increasing the odds that they will cause problems later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic performance.

Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:

  • Swelling
  • Burning or dull pain
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle Spasms

Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:

Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Milazzo treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, tension in the body is alleviated, inflammation decreases and the nervous system is able to function optimally.

When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients and water can travel throughout the body easily. It can also bolster the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. A properly aligned spine allows the body to function more efficiently and become less susceptible to injury.

Dr. Milazzo 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 Chiropractic Wellness Center of Wyckoff, Dr. Milazzo will perform a full evaluation. He will construct a customized treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.

Active Release Technique for sports injuries

Active Release Technique incorporates similar techniques to deep tissue massage and myofascial release. It works by manipulating soft tissue, thereby reducing stress placed on joints and nerves. But every technique differs; Dr. Milazzo determines which treatment each individual patient may best respond to. Many patients begin to feel relief after just a few sessions, as the inflammation and tension in the body begin to decrease.

The first treatment will consist of an initial consultation, history, examination, and treatment.  In most cases, following the first treatment a patient will experience a positive result.  This may be an increased range of motion, less pain, increased muscle strength, or decreased numbness and tingling.

Relieving tight muscles and trigger points can help in reducing joint stress and improve your overall quality of life. It can help activate muscles that have been immobilized due to injury and decrease pain in other muscles. Active release technique is a type of soft tissue therapy that helps relieve tight muscles and nerve trigger points, greatly reducing joint stress or muscular pains. It is a great treatment option for many joint and muscle injuries.
