Sports Injury

sports massage for faster sports injury rehabilitation

Have you suffered a sports injury in Thousand Oaks? Have you heard the names Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Aaron Rodgers, Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, and Kareem Abdul-Jubbar before? These are some of the elite athletes who attribute a large amount of their success to the physical therapy and chiropractic care they received throughout their careers. In addition to the success experienced by these world class athletes, you may have noticed a team of physical therapist and chiropractors along the sidelines of NFL football games and the most recent Olympic events. Both of these organizations have recognized how vital physical therapy and/or chiropractic is to their teams success and integrated both disciplines into their sports medicine team. That is exactly what we have done at Omega Rehab & Sport.

Not only can physical therapy and chiropractic help world famous athletes excel, it has also been shown to provide short and long term benefits for entry level, high school, and college participants. Omega Rehab & Sport has been providing care to local amateur and professional sports teams for years and with this article, will inform you how you can benefit.


HOW CAN Physical Therapy HELP THOUSAND OAKS ATHLETES?

Thousand Oaks athletes routinely and continually put their bodies through an extremely high level of physical stress. These stressors are different than what we experience as a result of too much school work or demands from the boss at work. Sports participation often involves quick starts and stops, explosive jumping or running, collisions, and atypical body postures that put added demands on the bodies physical structure. Therefore, whether you are a football player, wrestler, golfer, or runner, physical therapy can provide the assistance your body needs to be able to adapt to these added stresses.

Often, these unusual stresses cause the bones in our back to come out of place. The effects of these changes create a cascade that often leads to loss of motion, flexibility, and speed while increasing the chances of developing headaches or predisposing the body to future athletic related injuries. For example, many long distance runners have been shown to develop chronic cases of tendonitis and pain throughout the joints in their legs. Typically, they are prescribed a pain killer to mask the symptoms of pain, providing short term relief. If pain killers were the real solution to the problem, why would they have to be continually taken? The truth is that many sports related injuries begin due to nerve interference caused by misalignment's in our joints, primarily the spine.

Our team of physical therapists and chiropractors at Omega Rehab & Sport in Thousand Oaks are specially trained at removing this type of interference. When this nerve interference is removed, the body experiences an increase in blood flow, higher immune system function, proper motor pattern firing, and overall better health. As a result, athletes receiving care at our clinic have noticed increased flexibility, speed, agility, and power during sports participation. These types of results have been seen at integrated physical therapy and chiropractic clinics all across the country. Luckily, there is one of those clinics right here is Thousand Oaks...Omega Rehab & Sport!
