Burlington Sports Therapy

Burlington Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation

Sports therapy requires a very comprehensive treatment that we regularly offer here at Edgar Family Chiropractic.

We provide the best sports rehabilitation treatment and recovery program that is very comprehensive, multidisciplinary, individualized and sport-specific. We treat acute sports injuries, strains, sprains, muscle, tendon and ligament repairs, tendonitis, hand injuries, post shoulder dislocation treatment, foot or ankle dysfunction, and surgery rehab.

There are two factors that influence how fast a person is able to get active and return to their sport of choice.

The first factor is the amount of time the person waits to initiate treatment. Ideally, therapy should be initiated within 24-48 hours after injury to prevent the formation of scar tissue, reduce pain and improper healing. The longer an injury is left, the more likely that it will become chronic.

The second factor is the importance of getting the right kind of therapy under the supervision of the right therapist who is specialized in treating "sport specific injuries".

After a thorough assessment of the injury, our doctors come up with an individualized and unique treatment plan that usually includes:

1. Acute care with physiotherapy modalities. The purpose of these therapies is to lower inflammation and speed up the recovery process. This can include any combination of the following:

-Electrical Therapies (Interferential Current, TENS, micro-current)
-Ultrasound Therapy
-Medical Acupuncture
-Heat/Ice therapy

2. Soft tissue (such as muscle work) to reduce muscle spasm and promote blood flow to the injured muscles, ligaments, or tendons.

3. Progressive exercise program prescription that starts with tips for homecare and progresses to the strengthening of the injured tissues and health improvement.
