Dr. Ryan Provides Sports Injury Rehabilitation with Chiropractic Care
Sports Chiropractor in Tulsa: Activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. Dr. Keith Ryan, DC works with amateur through professional athletes in Tulsa and the surrounding areas for optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately injuries occur, but with chiropractic for sports injuries, clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
A sports injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from or lead to poor technique when an individual overcompensates for an injury. This overcompensation can include favoring one side of his or her body or favoring a certain position. Sports injuries can also lead to secondary pains and problems. Dr. Ryan treats not just the specific location of pain but the areas radiating out from it as well.
Sports Injuries Can Cause Further Injuries if Left Untreated
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Ryan also treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decrease inflammation and allow the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients and water can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.
Dr. Ryan can assist athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At our sports chiropractic clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we will perform a full evaluation and construct a customized treatment plan to get athletes feeling their best and back to doing what they love.
