Proper assessment, treatment and preventative care is vital for those in the athletics field for rehabilitation from injury. Effective care means a faster return to exercise and sporting activities. Silverback Chiropractic can develop thorough rehabilitation programs for every type of athlete from rugby players and triathletes to surfers and motorsport enthusiasts of any age.
Common injuries we work with include:
- Hamstring tears
- Rolled ankles
- Shoulder injuries
One area we focus on during the rehabilitation process is over-reliance on other joints after injury. New joint and muscle injuries can occur after a rehabilitation program that either has not properly been adhered to or has been ended prematurely. For example, athletes may present with a simple ankle injury and rely on other joints more heavily (such as the knees) to continue the activity, risking a torn ACL. To counter-act this, our rehabilitation programs focus on restoring proper function to the joints, coupled with comprehensive testing to ensure rehabilitation ends at the right time.
