Sports Chiropractic Medicine – Athlete Care

Injury Care
From amateur to collegiate and professional levels, athletes will get injured. Muscle, tendon, and ligamens overuse and the competitive nature of sports leave athletes vulnerable to specific injuries, in both contact and non-contact athletics. At Accident Care Team of Oviedo, we have more than 10 years experience treating athletes. We understand the mechanism of sports-related injuries and the most effective ways to rehabilitate our athletes to get them back on the playing field as soon as possible.

Preventative Care
Most athletic activities result in overuse of muscle, tendons, and ligaments. Everyday wear and tear to the soft-tissues of the body eventually lead to the breakdown of tissue integrity and ultimately result in injury. It’s our philosophy that adopting a proactive approach to health to prevent injuries is a best practice to insure that an athlete continues to compete at their highest level.

Techniques such as Active Release can help break down the accumulation of scar tissue in the soft tissue of the body. By helping the body to reduce scar tissue and restoring elasticity (flexibility) to the soft tissues of the body, an athlete may prevent some injuries before they occur.

How do overuse conditions occur?

Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) can be affected in three ways: Acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc), Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma) and Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).

Each factor can stimulate the production of tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. When a nerve is trapped, you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
