Sports Injuries and Treatment
Sports injuries are common, but certain sports injuries can be severe and debilitating. For any sports injury, it is important to seek treatment. At Symtrio Chiropractic & Sports Medicine in Hillsboro, OR, our experts will diagnose and treat your sports injury.

Sports Injuries and Symptoms
There is a wide range of injuries that can occur from playing sports. In particular, injuries that affect your back are common. For instance, pulled muscles and strains are regular occurrences. Soft tissue injuries are also common and can make it difficult to perform the way you used to. More severe injuries are also possible, such as a slipped disc or torn rotator cuff. Other injuries include shin splints, runner’s knee, tennis elbow, sprains and strains, and more. These, along with a varied list of injuries that can impact your back, neck, and shoulders, are all issues that our chiropractor can help you manage.
Chiropractic Care for a Sports Injury
When you visit our chiropractor, serving Orenco Station, Hillsboro, and surrounding areas in Oregon, we will perform a physical exam to determine where your pain is coming from. We know that everyone's injury is different and will require different care. After a diagnosis, we will create a personalized treatment plan.
The first phase of treatment for a sports injury is for pain relief. Depending on your injury, we may use chiropractic adjustments to alleviate pain. Our chiropractor will adjust your back and neck to alleviate tension and ensure that your spine is aligned. This can eliminate discomfort in many areas of the body.
Our chiropractor may also use massage therapy for soft tissue injuries. This method relieves pain, improves blood flow, and reduces inflammation. Massage therapy is also great for sore or stiff muscles.
Our chiropractor will also work on restorative care and wellness to help prevent future injuries. We will give you corrective exercises to stretch and strengthen the injured areas. This improves your range of motion and will help you get back to playing the sport you love.
