New Jersey is a terrific state for participating in a variety of sporting activities and competing in sporting events. At Park Ridge Chiropractic in Park Ridge, NJ, Dr. Kahanec provides our patients with non-invasive chiropractic care for sports injuries and other ailments.
Common Reasons for Sports Injury Treatment
Sprains, strains, and even fractured bones commonly occur when participating in sporting events and activities. You might suffer a slipped disc, endure a whiplash injury, or maybe develop tennis elbow. Sports injuries often occur due to repetitive motions, hard and unexpected impacts, or maybe losing your footing by rolling or twisting an ankle or another body part.
Many sports injuries automatically trigger invasive medical procedures and the use of potentially addictive medications that may or may not help you heal from your injuries. An experienced sports chiropractor can treat you with non-invasive treatments that provide you with natural pain relief while enabling your body’s natural healing to occur.
Common Types of Sports Injury Treatments
We provide you with a holistic approach to sports treatment that often includes chiropractic care and physical therapy. Our chiropractor can prescribe and deliver a variety of treatments that might include:
- Massage therapy
- Spinal adjustment
- Spinal decompression
- Strengthening injured tissue
Massage therapy helps to relieve inflammation and swelling that put pressure on nerve endings and cause pain. Electrostimulation targets your injured soft tissue and bone with low levels of electrical current that flush out toxins and floods the area with red blood cells carrying oxygen and iron.
A spinal adjustment or spinal decompression can reduce pressure on injured spinal discs and connective tissue. And a variety of exercises can help to strengthen your injured area and accelerate the natural healing process.

No matter what the condition might be, a sports chiropractor can help you to fully recover and resume your normal activities as soon as possible. Dr. Kahanec is a runner and longtime participant in sports and sporting events, so he knows how to help athletes and those who enjoy highly active lifestyles. He understands athletes and helps the injured to return to the sports they love as soon as possible.
