sports injuries asheville ncThere is no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy in the Asheville area. Living an active lifestyle is part of what attracts thousands of new residents and millions of tourists to Buncombe County every year. From world-renowned hiking and mountain biking to whitewater rafting and premier fly fishing, western North Carolina has something for everyone. 

For many in our area, sports are an integral part of living a healthy and active lifestyle. We have excellent town and county recreational sports facilities, providing children and adults places and teams on which to play soccer, tennis, basketball, baseball, squash, racquetball, and so much more. Our middle schools and high schools have excellent football, volleyball lacrosse, basketball, and baseball programs and have produced some well-known professional athletes. Throughout the beautiful neighborhoods and greenways, you can find Asheville area residents running, biking, skateboarding, and rollerblading, many of whom are training for competitions like the Asheville Marathon. 

Unfortunately, when you play sports, injuries are almost inevitable. When sports injuries occur, we typically focus on healing and returning from injury; however, rehabilitation and recovery are just as important for preventing lingering issues. Monitto Chiropractic has helped many patients recover and rehabilitate from sports injuries. 

How Chiropractic Helps People Recover from Sports Injuries

Chiropractors are skilled in manual adjustment of the spine and make sure that bones are lined up and balanced. This helps relieve tension and pressure in the body like the neck, back shoulder, knee, and ankle. Their main goal is to focus on restoring the joint function by making adjustments to alleviate joint inflammation and reducing pain.

A simple physiological truth is often overlooked in the treatment of athletic injuries and in the subsequent rehabilitation; namely, that the Golgi Tendon Organs (GTO) at the musculoskeletal junctions at the origin and insertion of a strained muscle are in need of precise manipulation to restore the muscle back to physiological homeostasis.

The technique we employ to quickly normalize this neural tone and improve physiological function to an injured muscle can be found in a kinesiological muscle manipulation procedure simply known as “Origin/Insertion Technique” or more aptly called Golgi Tendon Reset. 

Athletes do not want to be down long. They want to get back to the sports they love. If you want to give yourself the best chance at a rapid, safe recovery, consider chiropractic care.
