Newark Chiropractor Treats Sports Injuries and Relieves Back Pain
Newark Pain and Rehab Center, uses a combination of conservative therapies including chiropractic, spinal decompression therapy and safe manipulation under anesthesia to restore balance and movement to the body. Our focus with every patient is to treat the underlying injury. Unlike conventional medical treatments that 'cover up' pain with prescription painkillers or rely on invasive surgery, we believe in the body's natural ability to heal itself. We focus our treatment on the source of pain to help patients realize long-term pain relief, while also healing the source of the problem to prevent future sports injury.
Whether you're a weekend athlete or a professional, it's natural for sports injuries to occur. It's inevitable that even with warming up and stretching, one day you may play to hard, run too long or simply land on your body the wrong way. When this happens, chiropractic care can return injured spinal segments to their proper alignment. Physical therapy exercises will help strengthen supportive tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments), restoring a flexibility and movement to the injured area.
As our bodies age, back injuries are one of the most common sport injuries for active adults. Oftentimes, you may not even be aware that you have experienced back pain. A herniated disc, for example, occurs when a disc slips out of alignment from your spine. If this discs presses on a nearby nerve, you can experience leg pain, arm pain and shoulder pain, depending on the nerve's connections with your body. That's why our chiropractor does a full evaluation of every new patient to determine the exact cause of injury. While the symptom may be leg pain, the actual injury may be a herniated disc in the lower back. Spinal decompression therapy treats disc injuries in the neck and low back, and uses negative pressure to return the herniated or bulging disc back to its proper location.
A combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy exercises allow our chiropractor and staff to effectively treat many forms of should pain, back pain, leg pain and arm pain. We tailor each chiropractic treatment to the specific needs of your body, whether you are struggling with back pain or recovering for a knee or ankle injury.
