Sports rehabilitation is a multi-disciplinary approach to treat injuries sustained through sports participation. So, the athlete can regain normal pain-free mobility. The primary goal is to return to pre-injury activities, whether the athlete is a professional, amateur or casual player.
The most common injuries treated by the sports rehabilitation team is sprains and strains. A sprain is an injury to a ligaments caused by overstretching or tearing. A strain is an injury or tear to the muscle itself. Other conditions that can be treated through a sports rehabilitation program are fractures, arthritis issues, joint replacements and generalized pain issues.
Chiropractic Care offers a balanced approach for healing of sports related injuries. By using Chiropractic Care for spinal adjustment, it assists to return spinal segments to their normal position and mobility. On occasion, physical therapy and massage is used to help the supportive tissues (muscles, tendons, & ligaments). Chiropractic Care helps the injured areas return to normal function. Combined with some rest to help the healing process, athletes will find their way back on the field sooner. Chiropractors may also offer strategies for exercise and stretching to help stay on the straight and narrow path to better enjoyment of the chosen sport. Using Chiropractic Care to restore spinal health to its optimal state is a wise consideration so that the body has the best opportunity to maximize proper function.

Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical treatment option for peopleexperiencing back pain. This back pain can be caused by a degenerative discdisease, such as a bulging disc or herniated disc that is placing pressure on a nearby nerve root.
This type of therapy is used to realign the components of the spine in order to relieve pressure on a pinched nerve that is causing chronic pain and symptoms. By using traction, spinal decompression therapy increases circulation to the damaged disc, allowing it to begin the natural healing process. This may not only relieve disc pressure, but also reduce compression of nearby spinal nerve roots.
If you are suffering from chronic back pain from a damaged disc, give us a call to discuss decompression therapy and other conservative treatments. This therapy could reduce your pain and prevent you from requiring spine surgery to correct your condition.

Pregnancy and Pediatric Care
Is Chiropractic safe for kids?
Yes! Dr. Young specializes in performing chiropractic adjustments on children and the techniques he uses are gentle and non-invasive. Each chiropractic adjustment is tailored to each individual child’s delicate and pliable spine with a very light amount of force.
The optimal time for a child’s first chiropractic check-up is right after birth. The earlier nerve system interference is found and cleared, the better chance your child has to adapt to its new environment and grow and develop optimally from day one. If your child has never had a chiropractic check-up, it is never too late to start. Don’t forget to ask questions and start today.
There are many reasons and causes of interferences in the nervous system of children, toddlers and even newborns.
One of the most physically stressful experiences a child has in his or her lifetime is the birthing process. During the birthing process: twisting, torqueing, compression and tractioning of a child’s fragile spine occurs from the use of forceps, vacuums, doctor’s hands and even during cesarean delivery. Every single one of these action causes physical stress to the infants little spine and bodies; which causes misalignments and distortions in the spine and nervous system.
Every child falls right? Even a seemingly insignificant minor fall or accident can create stored trauma to the spine. All of these minor accidents that seem to be minor will and can lead to problems as the child gets older.
Sciatica is characterized as a sharp shooting pain down the legs typically into the foot and toes. It also can be a very dull ache or numbness as well. It usually begins as a sharp pain in the lower back and eventually travels down the leg. Sitting and standing for a long period of time usually makes the symptoms worst for the time period. The Symptoms can also go down one or both legs and also have the ability to switch from side to side. Leg pain and numbness can be a very serious sign and should not be ignored.
It is extremely important to understand that sciatica is not a specific condition itself but it is a symptom of a condition. In other words it is a small part of a bigger problem. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body. It travels down the back of your complete leg. It can be affected and irritated by many conditions. It can be created by direct pressure to the nerve from the vertebrae or the disc itself in the spine. It can be caused by the pressure to the nerve away from the spine; as well as applying pressure to the piriformis muscle in the buttocks.
Sciatica is treatable by chiropractic care and most of the time, it responds positively are your first spinal adjustment on your lower lumbar vertebrae and your sacroillac joints. Some types of nerve irritation responds much faster, while some nerve irritations do take a little while to help the performance of the nervous system to reach its optimal performance. Chiropractic is the most natural way to help with the process and help your nervous system reach its optimal state.
