Sports Injury Rehabilitation
If you had recently become injured due to a sporting activity you engaged in, you want to find relief from any pain and discomfort you are suffering from. Contact Barnes Chiropractic in Elkhart to make an appointment with our practitioner, Dr. Aaron Barnes, for an assessment. We handle sports medicine needs, as well as sport injury problems. Here is what you can expect when you visit our office.
Your Medical History Is Evaluated
Before our chiropractor creates a personalized treatment plan for your sports injury recovery, we need to know a bit about your medical history. We will provide you with documentation to fill out during your first appointment. Be sure to let us know about any medication you are taking, as well as any health issues you are currently dealing with. We use this information to determine the exact course of action to heal a sports injury effectively and safely. If you intend to use health insurance, bring your provider's card to your first consultation.
An Assessment Is Made
Our chiropractor, Dr. Aaron Barnes, will conduct a complete evaluation of your injury using non-invasive methods to check on your range of motion and pain threshold. If at any time you are unable to move a part of the body because of pain during this evaluation session, alert our chiropractor right away, so another means of testing is conducted instead. These tests will help our practitioner decide exactly what type of treatment to provide for your specific injury.
After an evaluation is completed, our chiropractor will create a plan for treating your sports injury. In many cases, this will include spinal adjustments on a routine basis until pain and discomfort subside. This process involves the manual manipulation of your spinal column using firm yet monitored pressure to the area. It quickly reduces joint stress, leading to an improved blood flow to areas of the body. If you need sports medicine, our chiropractor will provide you with a prescription at the time of your first appointment. Additional treatment options include physical therapy sessions, lifestyle changes, cold laser therapy, and other non-invasive techniques.
