Sports Chiropractor in Wyckoff, NJ: Chiropractic Wellness Center
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:
- Burning or dull pain
- Muscle Pain
- 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.

I started coming here and I would have sharp pains in my lower back to the point of unable to move. Within a month I had no more pain. I come regularly even through my pregnancy of my twin daughters. And I believe because of my frequency to the chiropractor during my pregnancy I had no lower back pain. I have been bringing my two 1 year old daughters since birth. My first born has torticollis in the neck which is getting much better since I’ve been bringing her 3 times a week to Dr. Ray. He is very patient and gentle with me girls and I recommend bringing your children to Dr. Ray.
Dr. Ray has helped my family with sports injuries, sinus and chest congestion. The most surprising thing about chiropractic care to me is that it has helped my son with his asthma and allergies. After starting Chiropractic Care my son told me he could breathe better and for the first time in 5 years he did not get pneumonia during the winter and allergy season
Having not gone to the Chiropractor for a while, I’m feeling much better after seeing Dr. Ray. After only a couple of weeks, I was doing much better. The exercises he gave me to do have been a big help. He really takes the time with you and I never feel rushed. Always feel great after a treatment! His office hours are very convenient and the staff is great! Thanks!
In my experience, Dr. Ray stands head and shoulders (properly-aligned head and shoulders I may add) over any other doctor in North Jersey. My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Ray now for more than six months, and it has been such a pleasure to find a chiropractor and overall wellness doctor that actually took the time to get to know us well. It’s clear that he’s well-trained and very experienced, but unlike most doctors, he makes sure that the patient knows exactly how they are going to benefit from said training/experience. Dr. Ray is a true family man who cares about your well-being! (is there a way to give more than 5 stars?). Thanks Doc!
I’m new to Chiropractic and Dr. Ray has been absolutely wonderful. I was amazed at how much the chiropractic care has increased my overall health. Not only did my back pain go away, but my sinus and breathing problems also disappeared. By the next day I was feeling better than ever. I highly recommend coming to the Chiropractic Wellness Center.
Dr. Ray is one of the best. He is always looking out for his patients best interest and has all the necessary tools at his disposal to get you feeling better again. I highly recommend Dr. Ray
I took my 15 year son to Dr. Ray after he complained about back pains from basketball. Dr. Ray took his time to explain to us how important spine alignment is, and how different parts of the spine effect our overall health. After that appointment, I started going to Dr. Ray myself. He not only adjusts my back, but helps subdue the pain in my knee due to a fall. I always feel better after my appointment. I started bringing my 14 year old daughter for some pains in her neck and back, and she has definitely felt improvement. I don’t know why I waited so long to go to a chiropractor! Thanks, Dr. Ray!
I have been going to Dr. Ray Milazzo for about a year now. I had chronic lower back pain and would occasionally throw my back out completely. Within one visit, I felt MUCH better from throwing it out. Since, I started going weekly and have felt a huge improvement with how my general health is. I also have my 3 and 2 year old get adjusted weekly. He is GREAT with children as my kids cannot wait to go! His office staff is wonderful and makes you feel like family when you are there. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for chiropractic care!
