Sports Injuries Treated by Our Beaverton Chiropractor

The chiropractic care and the additional holistic treatments we offer at Unity Chiropractic & Wellness aptly treat any injury related to the musculoskeletal system. The most common sports injuries treated in our office by our Beaverton chiropractor, however, include:

  • soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains
  • shoulder injuries
  • patellofemoral syndrome (runner's knee)
  • repetitive stress injuries (carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and golf elbow)
  • sciatica
  • herniated or slipped discs

Our skilled team of medical professionals is trained to treat nearly any injury which might occur due to sports or athletic activity. Even minor injuries to the musculoskeletal system should be evaluated and treated by a professional; sports injuries left unattended often heal incorrectly, leading to the formation of scar tissue, limited mobility, hindered athletic performance, and future injury. 

Holistic Sports Injury Treatments, Therapies, and Techniques

Our chiropractor, Dr. Kathy Cantwell, and her holistic care team work together to provide a full menu of treatments, therapies, and treatment techniques to provide our patients with optimal care. We help patients recovery from sports injuries using a wide array of treatments including:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments - Maintain a properly aligned spine for optimal balance, body function, healing, and pain management.
  • Graston Technique - An instrument-assisted technique used to detect and release scar tissue from the body's soft tissues.
  • Kinesio Taping - Kinesio tape can be used to stretch tight tissues or hold overly stretched soft tissues in place.
  • Active Release Technique - This is a movement-based massage technique which specifically targets ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves, and fascia.
  • Myofascial Therapy - This type of massage focuses on the body's connective tissues to release painful scar tissue and allow for proper healing. 
  • Strengthening Exercises - Stretches and exercises aimed to rehabilitate injured muscles and strengthen key muscle groups.
