What do you use to help heal sports injuries?
Acute and chronic injuries are very different and will therefore have contrasting treatment options. Once injured, immediately stop doing the exercise or sport which is the cause of your injury until you have received adequate treatment. At Array Medical Center Surprise, we offer a wide variety of treatment options to get you on the road to recovery.
Physical Rehab: Rehabilitation that enhances and restores quality of life and functional ability to people with physical disabilities or injuries
TPI’s: This is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax.
Physiotherapy: Alternative treatment of injury, disease, or physical deformity using methods such as heat treatment, massage, and exercise
Chiropractic Therapy: Adjustments (manipulations) to the spine or other parts of the body. The goal is to ease pain, correct alignment problems, and complement the body’s natural ability to self-heal.
Graston Technique: Used by 2/3 of NFL, NBA and MLB teams, the general goals of Graston Technique therapy are to reduce pain and increase function. This is done through the breaking down of scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft tissue. Graston also reduces restriction by stretching connective tissue, allowing the rearranging of the soft tissue in need of treatment. Collectively, the Graston Technique promotes a better healing environment for the injured soft tissue.
