Sports Injury Chiropractor
Dr. Raveling has been relieving patients with sports injuries for nearly three decades with his skilled combination of chiropractic care, massage therapy, rehabilitation and physical therapy. This includes everyone from the weekend warrior to the serious athlete. As a sports injury chiropractor, he fully understands the strains, sprains, and overextensions that plague athletes and has numerous non-invasive, drug-free (and most of all, effective) techniques that spur the body to heal itself and become less vulnerable to future injury. So whether you jog or climb, play tennis, golf or football, Dr. Raveling can help.
The most common types of sports injuries are strains, sprains and pulled muscles. Golfers, for example, can and frequently do suffer strains from the sudden, violent swinging action of hitting the ball, and complain of back, shoulder, arm and wrist pain. Tennis players frequently suffer sprained ankles, knee injuries and the legendary “tennis elbow.” Some injuries happen suddenly (like whiplash on the football field) while others build up from repetitive action. These repetitive stress injuries are almost always exacerbated by incorrect form and posture during training or the game itself. In spite of how common these injuries are, Dr. Raveling recognizes and treats each sports injury patient as a complete individual for the most comprehensive healing.
Then the process of physical therapy comes in. As your posture is being corrected, Dr. Raveling and our team will train you through specific stretches and exercises designed to strengthen and improve range of motion in injured muscles. This combined approach of improving posture and rehabilitating soft tissues is critical to providing overall healing. Dr. Raveling focuses on proper form and will make sure that you know exactly how to do each stretch and exercise so that you receive the most therapeutic benefit from it.
