Are you suffering from back pain after a fall on the ski slopes? Did a tough hike leave your back in pain? Has a pick-up game of basketball injured your spine? Sports injuries often take the form of spine injuries. Like most spinal disorders, they can be difficult to treat, requiring special techniques or alternative treatments.
Luckily, dedicated spine care clinics like SpineOne can set you up with many therapies to get you back to the sport you love. In this post, we’ll explore some of these treatments.
- Physical Therapy. Physical therapy involves sessions with a licensed physical therapist who will work with you to increase strength, mobility, stability, and flexibility. Back specialists may also have special exercises for you to do at home.
- Chiropractic Spinal Manipulative Therapy. Chiropractors are a great resource for spinal disorders, and sports injuries are no exception. By manipulating the musculoskeletal structure, chiropractors can help your back feel better.
- Deep Tissue Mobilization/Massage. When massage is mentioned, many people think of spas, pampering, and relaxation. But therapeutic, deep tissue massage is different––it targets a specific problem and may be slightly uncomfortable. However, it is a great tool to treat back pain.
- Diagnostic and Therapeutic Injections. Different types of injections can be effective for the relief of neck pain and back pain. These may include epidural spinal injections and facet joint injections. Diagnostic injections, like discography, can help your back specialist pinpoint the cause of your back pain.
