ATLANTA, Oct. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Century Center Chiropractic in Atlanta, GA announced that the practice provides chiropractic care and physiotherapy treating for recreational and professional sports injuries. Atlanta sports injury chiropractor Dr. Jared Simon has substantial experience treating common fall and winter sports injuries, including whiplash, back pain, neck pain and knee pain. Injuries sustained while playing football, basketball and skiing require prompt treatment and rehabilitation to help the body properly heal.
With the fall sports season well under way, Atlanta sports injury chiropractor Dr. Jared Simon is urging athletes to seek medical attention for any injuries they sustain while on the playing field. According to Dr. Simon, without proper care, sports injuries are unable to correctly heal. This can cause the formation of scar tissue and lead to a lifetime of chronic pain.
"The late fall and early winter months are a common time for sports injuries," said Dr. Simon. "Whether it is an injury on the football field or strained muscles from running long distance, it is easy to overdo it while being active in sports. Seeking immediate diagnostic care and treatment following an injury is critical. A delay in treatment can lead to the formation of scar tissue, which increases pain and slows recovery."
Dr. Simon says that the most effective treatments combine chiropractic care with physiotherapy for long-lasting pain relief. High-impact sports like football can cause a herniated disc or whiplash injury. According to Dr. Simon, chiropractic adjustments help to restore alignment to the spine. These adjustments relieve pressure on pinched nerves, which in turn alleviates chronic pain. Dr. Simon may also recommend physiotherapy to help sore and stiff muscles safely heal after an injury.
"Torn ligaments, pulled muscles, and dislocated joints are common sports injuries that affect both amateur and professional athletes," said Dr. Simon. "Physiotherapy treatments help ease pain by reducing inflammation and promoting the internal healing process. When combined with chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy helps injuries heal faster and patients experience less pain."
Without proper treatment, patients can suffer years of chronic neck pain and back pain. The chiropractor is also warning patients to be when training for 5K races or marathons.
"Proper preparation when training for long distance races is essential to prevent injury in patients," said Dr. Simon. "Correct spinal alignment, adequate stretching and monitoring the pace as to not 'over-train' will help athletes remain injury free."
Dr. Simon has helped manage chronic back pain for hundreds of patients after a sports injury. He has been featured on NBC TV's "Peachtree Morning" and WGST radio.
Dr. Simon and his wellness team provide care for Decatur, Buckhead, Brookhaven, Tucker, Northlake, downtown and midtown Atlanta. Sports injury patients may learn more about back and neck pain management at http://centurycenterchiro.com.
