A sports injury can result from an underlying musculoskeletal condition. As well as a collision with another athlete, over-extending a joint, or improper stretching or warm-up before participating in an activity. Regardless of the cause of the injury, the result is often back pain, neck pain, inflammation, decreased range of motion, soreness, or numbness in the extremities.
Instead of resorting to pain medications, we treat our patients using hands-on chiropractic care. They are customized for each patient’s health needs and goals. Treatments typically consist of our ProAdjuster treatment. It adjusts the spine and neck to alleviate pressure on the nerves and restore proper spacing to the discs and vertebrae.

In addition to chiropractic care, Dr. Henry treats sports injury patients in his Lauderhill and Ft. Lauderdale offices using various types of natural therapies.
One of the techniques that Dr. Henry uses is massage therapy. It is useful for kneading out knots that can develop in the muscles and cause neck and back pain.
It is also helpful in removing built-up tension and muscle stiffness following an injury.
Another common way of treating athletic injuries is using physical therapy. These controlled exercise movements that is designed to facilitate motion and reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation.
We specifically recommend physical therapy to patients suffering from shoulder pain or tennis elbow. Each of which can limit motion. When treated in our office and using home exercises, patients with shoulder pain and tennis elbow will see a decrease in symptoms as the body’s tissues begin to repair themselves.
In addition to using chiropractic care and other therapies like ProAdjuster and laser therapy to treat existing injuries, our chiropractor longs to educate athletes in the Lauderhill and Ft. Lauderdale communities on ways to prevent future injuries.
Athletes should properly stretch both before and after participating in physical activity.
Working out, training, or competing when muscles are cold heightens the risk of injury.
