At the Bartell Chiropractic Life Center, patients come to us suffering from a wide variety of sports injuries. In assessing the nature and severity of the injury, we start by identifying the symptoms which may include:
- Swelling in one or several parts of the body
- Burning or dull pain
- Frequent and often severe headaches
- Muscle pain beyond what is normal from sports activity
- Muscle spasms
The Hillsboro chiropractor treatment services go beyond treating symptoms to determine root causes. Sports injuries may occur in several ways, either through blunt force or contact, or normal stress to the body from normal physical activity. A few of the more common injuries where patients find great relief from chiropractor adjustments in Hillsboro FL are:
Whiplash occurs when the neck is abruptly pushed forwards or backwards. This is a frequent football injury but can occur in other contact sports as well. The whipping motion causes damage or stress to the spinal area resulting in inflammation, pain, and reduced range of motion. Dr. Michael Bartell, a Hillsboro chiropractor sports adjustment practitioner, has treated thousands of patients over the years and helped them find relief from such whiplash-type injuries.
When the body contorts, twists, or receives minor to severe blows, the spine is jarred causing misalignments to one or several vertebrae. It may take several chiropractor treatments in Hillsboro FL to bring the injured spine back to a proper, healthy alignment, but this has been the answer many of our patients have sought when they come to our Life Center. Left untreated, back pain can be incapacitating and prevent patients from further sports participation as well as normal life activities. Pain medication only offers temporary relief while Hillsboro chiropractor adjustments enable the body to heal itself, thus reducing or eliminating the pain.
The pain and physical limitations that many injured athletes experience often result from a pinched nerve. Once again, the cause of the problem, to use the medical term, is a subluxation—a misalignment of the vertebrae which applies pressure to area nerves. The Hillsboro chiropractor treatment techniques employed by Dr. Bartell involves appropriate adjustments to the spine to eliminate the pressure exerted on the surrounding nerves.
