Doctors of chiropractic undergo years of training in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the muscles, nerves, joint, skeletal system, and nervous system. They have extensive experience in designing treatment plans that are safe, holistic, and don’t rely on the use of invasive surgeries or prescription medications. If you have a sports injury in South Louisiana, one of our experienced chiropractors can help get you back on your feet quickly and safely.

At Total Care Injury & Pain Centers, we specialize in evaluating and treating sports injuries. If you’re suffering from pain, immobility, or stiffness after sustaining a sports injury in South Louisiana, contact us today to learn more about how we can treat your sports injuries through chiropractic care. 

Common Sports Injuries and How to Prevent Them

You are at a higher risk of sustaining a sports injury if you are not regularly active, you didn’t warm up properly, or you’re playing rough or contact sports. You can reduce your risk of suffering from a sports injury by stretching and warming up before exercising or playing sports, by wearing protective gear when necessary, and by being aware of your environment and limitations.

The most common sports injuries we see in our patients are sprains, strains, knee injuries, sore and swollen muscles, rotator cuff injuries, and back pain. Even a mild sports injury can become more severe if left untreated, so we recommend that you visit us for a consultation as soon as possible if you have suffered from a sports injury in South Louisiana. 

Chiropractic Treatment Methods for Sports Injuries

When you visit us for chiropractic care after a sports injury, we’ll first perform a full examination and take a patient history. We provide onsite diagnostic imaging to determine the extent of your sports injury. We also offer same day treatment once we have determined the best course of action for your symptoms and lifestyle.

Treatment may include chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy such as massage. We will also give you instructions for continuing your treatment at home, such as therapeutic exercises you can do at home or certain activities you should avoid.
