Sports/Kinesio Tape Treatment
Sports injuries are common while participating in sporting activities or during exercise. You are at a higher risk of developing sports injuries if you do not warm up before exercise or have not been regularly participating in your sporting activities. Our team at Crystal Springs Chiropractic in San Mateo treats a wide range of sports injuries. One of the tools we use to help our patients is Kinesio tape. Kinesio tape is used to support and relieve pain. It reduces the swelling in the muscles, joints, and ligaments. Professional athletes and amateurs alike use this tape as part of their normal health regimen. Let’s take a look at some of the injuries and conditions that can benefit from Kinesio tape.
High impact sports and contact sports can cause a dislocation when the bones that form a joint become separated, causing pain and damage to the nerves. Chiropractors use manual adjustments to bring the bones back in the correct position. We also offer rehabilitation therapy and massage to restore your strength and the mobility of your muscles and joints.
Strains and Sprains
Sprains and strains can cause pain and immobility in the joints. Strains occur when the muscles are overstretched, causing pain and muscle spasms. Our chiropractors use different techniques to help your muscles move freely and reduce muscle spasms.
These are common injuries to runners as they often occur when a runner does not stretch or warm-up. They also occur due to hard surfaces for sports and wearing unsupportive shoes. We use massage therapy and ice packs to treat this type of injury.
Repeated stress on the bones over time can lead to fractures that need the attention of chiropractic experts. We will identify the cause of the fracture and use techniques that are designed to enhance the recovery process. We may use Kinesio tape for the treatment and ultrasound therapy. If you get a fracture from a sports activity, our chiropractors are here to help.
The chiropractic treatments for sports injuries include sports/Kinesio tape to restore motion and reducing swelling in the affected area. Regardless of the level of experience, all bodies are prone to sports injuries. Repeated stress on the injured parts can result in improper movement of the spine and joints, affecting the normal function of the nerves and muscles.
