What sports injuries do you treat?

Dr. Lynch knows that athletic injuries come in many forms and severity levels, but they all fall into one of two categories: acute or chronic. We treat both types of injuries, but it's important to understand which category your symptoms fall into, because that will guide our treatment techniques.

Acute: These sudden injuries occur during athletic activity, often because of a sudden motion that inflames, bruises, or tears a specific body part instantly. Sudden pain or loss of mobility during exercise is a red flag to stop and seek treatment, even if you don't know exactly what injury caused your pain.

Chronic: If you practice the same sport regularly, repeated motions, falls, or postures may do gradual damage to your musculoskeletal system. Chronic injuries like runner's knee, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow develop over time, as a result of stress and strains that never have time to heal. Other chronic injuries may develop because of untreated acute injuries, which may cause days or weeks of pain and inflammation.  

How do chiropractic adjustments help sports injuries?

Chiropractic adjustments involve the physical repositioning of the spinal column to realign the vertebrae and joints. Adjustments are a core part of our sports injury treatment regimens, because they allow us to correct slight misalignments of the joints and muscles to prevent fluid buildup, pressure, and other sources of pain. Any swelling or slight misalignment will stand in the way of your healing process and cause recurring pain, so our Lexington chiropractor uses manual and instrument-assisted techniques to release this tension and reduce inflammation on your joints.

Do you offer rehabilitation for sports injuries in Lexington?

Dr. Lynch will personalize a pain management plan that works for your unique injury, and it might involve exercise rehabilitation to restore flexibility and strength. Our goal is to help you get back to the activities you love without worrying about pain or injury complications, so we will keep track of your progress and make sure you're on the right path to a pain-free, active life.  

How long will it take to recover from my sports injury?

Recovering from a sports injury involves two important factors: pain relief and healing. Our treatment plans vary from patient to patient, but our goal is always to relieve your pain and promote healing so that it doesn't come back. Our chiropractic adjustments allow us to do both, but every patient's path is slightly different.
