After a sports injury or repetitive motion injury, many patients suffer from restricted mobility. For example, sports injuries like tennis elbow and golf elbow can cause a repetitive motion injury to the elbow’s tendons, restricting mobility and causing chronic pain. For other patients, a knee injury, back injury or neck injury is compromising their range of motion. If you have sustained an injury, you may already know about the benefits of Chiropractic care for natural pain relief. Our Houston physical medicine services are a natural complement to these treatments. Together with Houston Chiropractic care, physical medicine helps to relieve pain and support the body’s natural state.
Physical Medicine in Houston Part of Sports Injury Rehabilitation
Our Houston physical medicine services encompass a pain management and injury rehabilitation program that includes physiotherapy, corrective care exercises and soft tissue techniques. These treatments complement Chiropractic adjustments through natural pain relief and enhanced mobility. Physical medicine treatments like hot and cold therapy are an effective technique for reducing internal inflammation, which triggers chronic pain.
If you have suffered a sports injury, it’s natural to worry about exercising the body following injury. After all, the last thing that anyone wants is to further injure the body and cause more pain. We teach our patients gentle, corrective exercises that safely bring movement, flexibility and coordination back to the body following an injury. Most importantly, these corrective exercises can be done from the comfort of your own home each day – no special equipment required. Activity modification and adaptive equipment can also help bring natural mobility back to the body. These exercises are an effective way to support the pain alleviation and bring movement back to the body, without risking additional injury.
Our Houston physical medicine program treats soft tissue injuries with a special focus on preventing the formation of scar tissue. After an injury, thick bands of scar tissue can form across muscles, blocking the body’s natural state and exacerbating pain. Our physiotherapy treatments help break up scar tissue once it has formed, restoring mobility to the body and keeping the joints lubricated. These treatments are an important addition to any pain alleviation program because they not only support the body’s natural recovery process, but also help to reduce the risk for future injuries.
