FAQ's About Sports Injury Chiropractic Care

Why see a chiropractor after a sports injury?

Highland Chiropractic offers a drug-free approach to your injury recovery. Not only do we treat the injury, we also enhance your overall health to speed your recovery and prevent future injuries.

How can chiropractic care reduce my injury?

Dr. Copeland, your sports chiropractor in Louisville, KY, uses chiropractic techniques such as spinal adjustments to increase circulation throughout your body. Whether your injury occurred in your back, head, neck, knee or shoulder, circulation to and from these injured areas is crucial. The body brings in nutrients to restore damaged tissues and then removes toxins to reduce inflammation and swelling. Our chiropractic adjustments also occur at the joints to help re-position shoulders, knees, hips, ankles and wrists that were injured.

Will the treatment hurt?

Our services are here to reduce your pain, not contribute to it. From our gentle, spinal manipulations to non-invasive ultrasounds and electronic stimulation, you will not feel any pain. As we guide you through exercises designed to strengthen your muscles and support your injuries, you may feel slight muscle tension or pulling as we increase the range of motion. However, you will never experience pain.

What injuries do you treat?

We are here to help with multiple sports injuries such as runner's knee, tendonitis, tennis elbow, concussions, muscle strains, sprains, overuse injuries including carpal tunnel syndrome, ankle turns, stress fractures in the feet, plantar fasciitis and more. Our cleansing foot bath helps to eliminate toxins and promote healing as well as reduce inflammation and discomfort.

How long is the treatment program?

Your sports injury recovery will vary depending on your overall health and the depth of your injury. Of course, we would like to develop a life-long relationship with you that extends beyond your sports injury recovery and into your daily health and wellness. We provide an initial evaluation and then plan your care accordingly. After the initial phase of providing pain relief, we enter into a corrective care stage and then maintenance phase to keep you injury free.
