Sports Injuries

Proper function of the spine and the joints is integral for optimal sports performance, and injuries in sports are common. Here at Core Chiropractic and Wellness Clinic, we specialize in treatment of a variety of sports injuries.

Dr. Guthrie is an expert  at evaluating musculoskeletal injuries of every type, ranging from ankle sprains, to Illiotibial band syndrome to shoulder tendonitis. She has pursued specialties that focus on the athlete and the sports enthusiast at any level. Active Release Technique is a well known muscle treatment that is extremely effective in conjunction with traditional chiropractic techniques. The benefits of Active Release Technique are many:

  • It has been demonstrated to reduce tissue healing time compared to regular chiropractic treatment alone.
  • Chronic muscle pain
  • It is a gentle, low invasive technique that is an ideal alternative for people that are nervous about being adjusted.

Dr. Guthrie can evaluate your unique situation and may refer you to the other practitioners in the clinic for additional treatment, as required. Once an acute injury has been treated, you may be referred to a personal trainer for additional rehabilitative care, or specialized strength training.
