Chiropractic Treatment for Running Injuries
Acute or chronic running injuries should be treated immediately to optimize healing and prevent any reduced range of motion. Your chiropractic wellness plan may include these drug-free therapies to reduce pain, heal the injured soft tissue, joints, and bones, and improve flexibility:
Spinal adjustment: To realign the spinal structures, this helps to improve your running form and prevent sports injuries.
Active release technique (ART): To break up scar tissue in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia causing pain, ART reduces inflammation, improves circulation, and restores tissue functions.
Graston technique: Specialized tools are used to mobilize the soft tissue and release muscle restriction to speed up healing.
Kinesio taping: A special stretchy tape is placed over the injured site to release the pressure on the soft tissue. It helps activate the body's natural pain relievers to reduce the pain and heal the tissues.
