How Your Chiropractor can Help with Your Recovery

If you’ve ever suffered from a strain, sprain or broken bone while playing sports you know just how painful and frustrating recovery can be. Taking care of yourself and doing what you need before engaging in activity will help you avoid sports injuries, keeping you well enough to play another day. Almost 2 million emergency room visits are made every year, with more than 70,000 of those resulting in hospitalization. Injuries requiring medical care included concussions, strains, sprains, and disconnected or broken bones. Poor training, improper use of gear and accidents on the field all contribute to the high number of sports injuries. As Woodstock’s experts in sports chiropractic care, we recommend the following in helping to keep you free of sports injuries.

  • Be careful when stretching. Don’t bend your knees more than halfway when doing knee bends. Don’t twist knees or elbows during routines and keep feet firmly planted at all times.
  • Try to remember to land with your knees slightly bent when jumping.
  • Wear the proper shoes for the sport. Football, softball and soccer are all sports wear cleats should be worn for better traction. Keep ankles and knees healthy by investing in a good pair of cleats. Never wear street shoes on the basketball court.
  • Hydrate before, during and after every time you play.
  • Understand your body’s limits and listen when it’s telling you its had enough.
  • Know the difference between discomfort and pain. Discomfort is you pushing your body. Pain is a signal that you’ve pushed too far. Listen to your body.
  • Use proper training methods for cardiovascular strength, power and endurance before engaging in new sports understanding that you’ll be moving new muscles in new ways, exposing them to the likelihood of injury.

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
