Sports Chiropractor Injury Rehabilitation Services
from St. Paul Lakeville ChiropractorSports Chiropractor Injury Rehabilitation

If sports injuries or other painful conditions are threatening your quality of life, you need safe, effective care and symptom relief. Our conservative healing and rehabilitation methods at Lake Marion Chiropractic Center can help put you back in action without major surgery or potentially-addictive painkilling drugs. Our St. Paul and Lakeville chiropractor, Dr. Craig Couillard, makes use of the following services and techniques:

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care can restore proper alignment and mobility to spinal joints dislocated or strained by injuries or chronic conditions. Realigning your body can improve your balance and biomechanics, relieving pinched nerves and reducing vulnerability to repetitive strain injuries.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the natural way to relieve soft tissue pain and encourage more rapid healing in a variety of sports injuries; in fact. Dr. Craig often provides massage for USA Swimming. Kinesio taping is administered following massage to reinforce and extend the healing benefits.

Advanced Soft Tissue Therapies

Soft issue mobilization may be administered by hand or with the aid of specialized instruments. By manipulating the tissues while they're in motion, our chiropractor can find and break up adhesions that impair motion. Sports massage is another advanced soft tissue therapy that can optimize soft tissues' flexibility and responsiveness.

Injury Rehabilitation

If you need to rehabilitate an injury, we have the tools and techniques to facilitate your recovery. Our combination of corrective exercises, adaptive equipment and specialized machines can serve their purposes in a personalized rehabilitation program.

Nutritional Counseling

The phrase "eating for health" isn't just an expression. If you want to heal thoroughly and quickly, our nutritional counseling services can help you choose the right foods and nutritional supplements to get your body back on track.

Sports Physicals

All Minnesota student athletes must receive the pre-participation physical evaluation, or PPE. We can provide these sports physicals for all the athletes in your family, evaluating strength/flexibility, screening for any changes that may require our attention and making recommendations for treatment as needed.

Concussion Management

Concussions can occur inside or outside the sporting world, and these potentially devastating injuries require immediate diagnosis and treatment. Our chiropractor is trained in concussion management and can provide evaluation, treatment recommendations and supportive therapies.

FMS Functional Movement Screening

FMS stands for Functional Movement Screening, an invaluable testing tool for detecting physical imbalances, asymmetries, weaknesses and limitations. These seven individual movement tests are a staple of athletic evaluation from colleges to Olympic teams.

Axial Decompression Therapy

Axial decompression therapy treats disc problems that cause upper extremity or lower extremity pain, tingling, weakness and numbness. Decreasing the pressure on the disc draws it inward, away from nerve tissue.
