Sports InjuriesWhat's your favorite sport? Is it running, weight-lifting, golf, swimming or something else? An active lifestyle, including routine exercise, invigorates, relieves stress and adds years to your life.

Unfortunately, most any physical activity or sport risks injury. Runners, for example, suffer stress fractures of the shin bone. Lower back, or lumbar, spinal injuries, misalignments and disc herniations plague the everyday jogger and marathon runner alike.

How to Treat Sports Injuries

Of course, when you suspect an injury, get to your primary care physician for correct diagnosis. X-rays, physical examination, ultrasound and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) are tools of the medical doctor's trade. Additionally, prescription medications control pain and inflammation.

Often, a physician recommends chiropractic treatment of sports injuries in the Quincy area. David Smith DC of Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, Inc. has extensive chiropractic experience and possesses many sports- and exercise-related certifications. He helps athletes, both professional and amateur, with injuries related to:

  • ankles
  • shins
  • knees
  • elbows
  • shoulders
  • neck
  • spine

A Comprehensive Approach

Dr. Smith, and his associates at Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, Inc. in Quincy, will not treat sports injuries in isolation. While Dr. Smith employs modern chiropractic treatments to support medical interventions for sprains, fractures and other injuries, he also evaluates the whole person to ensure neuro-muscular wellness. The American Chiropractic Association affirms this approach as the true aim of chiropractic care.

Dr. Smith takes information from the primary physician and performs his own chiropractic examination. He investigates the patient's spinal alignment and posture to understand the extent of the injury. Depending on patient need, he may utilize various treatments to optimize function, reduce swelling, correct spinal misalignments and decrease pain.

Treatments may include:

  • ultrasound
  • cryotherapy
  • paraffin wax treatments
  • massage therapy
  • muscle therapy
  • spinal decompression or motorized traction

In addition, Dr. Smith uses his kinesiology expertise to instruct patients in corrective and preventive exercises to support and strengthen healing and avoid re-injury. Dr. Smith counsels all his patients on:

  • healthy lifestyle changes
  • nutrition and supplements
  • ways to encourage proper function of the spine and nerves

Tags: Ideal Protein Plan  

It isn't uncommon for a Quincy chiropractor to tell patients that they really should lose some weight. After all, it is pretty common knowledge that excess weight puts additional strain on bones and joints, leading to pain and extra trips to Quincy chiropractors like David Smith, DC at Milton Chiropractic.Weight loss

Yet, most chiropractors stop there. They tell their clients to lose weight, but they don't tell them how. Thankfully, here at Milton Chiropractic, we go that extra mile. We don't just tell you what you need to do; we help you do it too. That's why we offer an exciting new weight loss program: Ideal Protein Plan.

Ideal Protein Plan isn't like all of those other weight loss programs out there - the ones where you yo-yo diet for a couple of years and then end up gaining all of the weight right back. Instead, Ideal Protein Plan is designed to help you lose weight and keep it off!

One of the main problems with most traditional diets is that in addition to losing fat, you're also losing muscle mass. Yet this muscle mass isn't just important for playing sports or staying active, it's crucial to continuing to burn calories and keeping the weight off. Ideal Protein Plan helps you lose fat without sacrificing all of your muscle tone in the process. The result is a leaner, meaner figure that you'll love and be able to keep for the long haul.

Although Ideal Protein Plan has been under development for the last 20 years, it is still relatively new and unknown on the diet scene. Therefore, if you have any questions, we'd love to help educate you on the program and walk you through the process so you can achieve optimal health. Call Quincy chiropractor Dr. Smith at Milton Chiropractic today. He'll fill you in on all of the details and get you started on your journey to personal transformation!
