Many people are athletes at different levels and experience injuries. It’s important to find a sports chiropractor in Freehold NJ that has experience working on these problems.
Dr. Russell Brokstein at Hometown Family Wellness Center in Freehold, NJ has been working on athletes for over 22 years. As an athlete himself, Dr. Russell has found chiropractic to not only help in recovering from injuries but improve optimal functioning.
A sports chiropractor not only adjusts the spine, but will utilize therapeutic stretching, extremity adjusting, soft tissue techniques, stabilizing exercises and other therapies if needed. The important thing is the initial analysis to find the actually cause of the problem to know which techniques to use. It’s important to differentially diagnose if the problem is stemming from a strain or sprain, is there an underlying joint restriction, are the discs or nerves being affected and are there tight muscles contributing to the imbalances.
Too many practitioners just address the point of pain. As a sports chiropractor in Freehold NJ, I search for the imbalances leading to the dysfunction. You will get relief of your pain, but improve healing and increase range of motion. Studies have shown that athletes seeing a sports chiropractor improve in strength, faster injury recovery, injury prevention, increased flexibility, overall improved sports performance. The great thing is this is all without any dangerous, addictive medications nor surgery.
Dr. Russell has worked on children who play sports, high school and college athletes, pro athletes, weekend warriors and even a competitor in The American Gladiators. One of our patients recently shared his experience below:
