Natural Sports Injury Treatment in Naperville

Natural Sports Injury Treatment in Naperville IL

We associate physical activity with health, and for good reason. But when a human body is taxed to its limits through athletic participation, sports injuries are a common result. A pre-existing musculoskeletal imbalance can make you even more vulnerable to these kinds of injuries. Fortunately, you've got a friend rooting for you on the sidelines one who can make a significant difference in your injury recovery, everyday athletic performance and overall wellness.

Here at Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we provide natural, drug-free treatment for sports-related injuries. Our Naperville sports chiropractor, Dr. Timothy Erickson, employs spinal adjustment and other natural healing techniques both to treat sports injuries and lower your odds of getting them, including

  • Sprains/Strains
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Tennis Elbow/Golfer's Elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Knee Injuries (e.g., ACL Sprain, etc.)
  • Shoulder Injuries (e.g., Rotator Cuff Injury, etc.)
  • Achilles Tendonitis

Our Naperville sports injury chiropractor knows first-hand the toll that athletic activities can take on the human body. Dr. Erickson played a variety of sports growing up, and in college he played on the men's rugby team while also serving as student athletic trainer for the basketball and football teams. He understands exactly what kinds of injuries your sport of choice makes you prone to, how athletic technique can play a role in certain types of injuries, and the need to maintain an optimal state of wellness between sporting events.


What Can Lead to a Sports Injury?

There are as many different potential sports injuries as there are sports, due in part to the sheer complexity of the human body and the many stresses placed on it by certain activities. For instance, contact sports such as football and rugby can subject the spinal column to severe impacts, dislocating vertebrae and causing spinal discs to shift onto major nerve roots.

This injury can produce not only neck or back pain but also shooting pains, tingling, muscle weakness and other issues in your limbs. Even the constant spinal jostling caused by running flat-out on a hard court, as basketball players constantly do, can cause spinal subluxation (misalignment) and nerve impingement.

If you already have an undiagnosed spinal misalignment, you could be a sports injury waiting to happen. An unbalanced body will experience excessive stress on one side or the other, potentially leading to knee, hip, joint or ankle pain. An off-kilter body may also contribute to flaws in your athletic technique, which in turn can promote soft tissue injuries such as tennis elbow, golf elbow, runner's knee, carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain disorders.


Chiropractic adjustment from our Naperville sports injury chiropractor could be exactly what you need to get back in the game and stay there. By correcting your spinal alignment and posture, we can reverse musculoskeletal imbalances while also relieving nerve pressure and muscular strain. Once your spine is back in line, you'll also be less prone to future injuries.
