What is the most effective way for treating my Sports Injuries?

The sun is out and it’s time to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Many people this time of year enroll in sports such as soccer, lacrosse, or softball all of which involve some form of running. There are many types of running injuries all of which can occur at any age. Two of the most common injuries of the lower leg are that of shin splints and Achilles tendonitis.

Shin splints are very common at the beginning of the season when an athlete isn’t properly warmed up or going too hard too soon. Achilles tendonitis, on the other hand, which involves the tendon that connects the calf muscle to the heel, occurs more as an irritation over time. Both symptoms are caused by a tightening of the calve muscles and can lead to sensations that can vary from a dull tightness to knife-like pains along the lower leg. At Backbones Chiropractic & Sports Therapy we offer Active Release Technique (ART) which is a treatment that breaks down scar tissue and adhesions that have accumulated in the muscle and soft tissue throughout the body.

ART is a state of the art therapy that can quickly and permanently resolve your soft tissue condition. For more information about ART please contact our office or visit the ART web site at www.activerelease.com.
