Common Sports Injuries Treated By Our Chiropractor in Lakeville
Our experienced St. Paul chiropractor, Dr. Craig Couillard has been treating sports injuries since 2001. He is passionate about sport injury treatment to keep his patients healthy and active.
Types of Sports Injuries Our Lakeville Chiropractor Treats
The sports injuries our Lakeville chiropractor treats can be minor or very serious. These may include tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, rotator cuff issues, knee concerns, sciatica, low back pain, IT band syndrome, bursitis, and neck pain. Sometimes they occur because we push our bodies to the limit while participating in sports and sometimes a pre-existing condition is exacerbated by playing sports.
How Our Chiropractor in Lakeville Provides Sport Injury Treatment
Sports injuries respond optimally to regular chiropractic treatment. Dr. Couillard will assess what associated structures such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles that may be involved with your spinal misalignments and develop a treatment plan that gets you out of pain, corrects the issues, restores and rebalances health.
We often complement your chiropractic sport injury treatment with massage therapy. Oftentimes, massage therapy before a chiropractic adjustment can help us get the most precise adjustment. We like to use massage therapy to keep the spine aligned- massage therapy keeps all of the associated structures cooperating.
At-Home Exercises and Nutritional Counseling with Our Chiropractor in Lakeville
Sports injuries respond well to at-home exercises that we will suggest you perform between your treatments with us. Our chiropractor in Lakeville will also offer nutritional counseling that includes dietary considerations and supplemental suggestions that can enhance your healing process and optimize health overall.
Sports Physicals with our Lakeville Chiropractor
We also perform sports physicals that are often required before beginning to play a sport. The advantage of seeing our Lakeville chiropractor for your pre-sports exam is that we can help prevent an injury from taking place. If we notice any subluxations or other issues related to the spine that may interfere with your sports performance, we can help optimize this for you. Call us at today for an appointment.
