What types of injuries can chiropractic care address?

Chiropractic care is highly effective in managing various injuries, including those sustained in sports activities and auto accidents. 

Specific sports injuries that Dr. Shemansky regularly treats include:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Golf-related strains
  • Pickleball falls
  • Tendonitis
  • Sprains or strains

Additionally, he effectively treats whiplash and musculoskeletal injuries commonly experienced in auto accidents with chiropractic manipulations, alignments, and other specialized techniques.

How does chiropractic care specifically address these injuries?

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring proper alignment to the spine and other joints, which is crucial for promoting healing and reducing pain associated with sports and auto injuries. Dr. Shemansky provides gentle manipulations and adjustments to realign misaligned structures, alleviating pressure on nerves and supporting the body's natural healing process. 

In addition to these techniques, he may use Active Release Therapy (ART) to release tension in soft tissues and Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) to improve flexibility and range of motion. 

These techniques accelerate injury recovery and prevent future issues.

What can I expect during a chiropractic session for sports or auto injuries?

During your initial visit, Dr. Shemansky conducts a comprehensive assessment, which may include reviewing your medical history, performing a physical examination, and possibly using imaging tests.

Based on the evaluation, he creates a personalized treatment plan to address your specific injuries and individual needs. This may involve a combination of chiropractic adjustments, ART, AAS, and other therapeutic modalities to facilitate healing and restore function.

Can chiropractic care help prevent injuries in sports and daily activities?

Dr. Shemansky not only treats injuries but also focuses on injury prevention. By optimizing spinal and joint alignment, the chiropractic care he provides enhances the body's biomechanics, reducing the risk of injury during sports and daily activities. 

Regular chiropractic visits can promote overall musculoskeletal health, improve flexibility, and enhance athletic performance, making it a valuable addition to injury prevention strategies.

Chiropractic care is safe and beneficial for individuals of all ages and fitness levels. Whether you're a seasoned athlete, a weekend warrior, or recovering from an auto accident, chiropractic treatments are tailored to suit your specific needs.
