“I have been going to this practice for over a year. I absolutely love them! My 10 year old son was having issues with his ankle, I called and they were able to work him in the same day. Dr. Eiselt is very personable while providing the best treatment! The staff is very friendly and helpful! So thankful a friend had recommended Dr. Eiselt to me!” Erica R. Clifton, OH
Why should you see a chiropractor for your sports injury?
A chiropractor will properly diagnose your sports injury and proceed to treat your condition with effective non-surgical, conservative methods. If necessary, we will order proper imaging such as an x-ray or MRI.
Chiropractic care will help relieve your injury by providing individualized treatment to get you back to the sport you love. The dysfunction or injury may be caused by trauma or caused from faulty biomechanics, which can cause an overuse sports injury.
Our chiropractors have many tools and techniques to treat sports injuries. We use specific manipulation, myofascial release techniques, and nutritional advice along with modalities such as electrical muscle stim, ultrasound, traction, and cold laser.
In addition, we have state-of-the-art rehab and exercise programs to address the stretch and strengthening component of the injury. We work closely as a team with our Physical Therapy department to serve our sports injury patients.
