Holistic Sports Medicine

Sports injury treatment Brisbane

At the Health & Healing Wellness Centre, we take a holistic approach to sports medicine. This means not only looking at treating injuries but looking at ways to prevent injuries.

We can offer you a range of treatments to decrease recovery time in your rehabilitation from an injury, help avoid a sporting injury and assist in improving your performance level. A sports injury may occur from direct impact, continued force or overuse of a body part. Sometimes incorrect form or technique may cause injury.

What will a sports injury therapist prescribe?

We may recommend a single form of sports injury treatment or several that will complement each other. Our most commonly used treatments include:

Chiropractic

Gentle manipulation to maintain a healthy spine.

Acupuncture

The insertion and manipulation of thin needles directly to the injured site for fast relief. This treatment is also able to access areas of the body that are difficult to treat by other means, such as deep muscle and under the kneecap.

Sports massage or deep tissue massage

Designed to prevent and relieve injuries, it can be performed before, during and after sport and exercise. Sometimes coupled with acupuncture to speed recovery time after an injury.

Do I need sports injury therapy?

Although it may be referred to as sports injury therapy, our treatments are also designed to prevent injury by strengthening the body, muscles, and ligaments to further enable them to endure the stresses placed on them during sport and even the most mild forms of exercise, such as regular walking. Chiropractic can assist by mobilisation and manipulation to assist in giving a full range of motion in your limbs, they will also provide guidance in strapping and bracing to prevent injuries. Acupuncture can provide a complete balance of the mind and body by increasing blood flow and circulation allowing the body to work to its peak performance. Sports massage helps increase endurance and minimise the chance of injury.
