Sports Injury Rehabilitation in Winter Park, FL
Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent them.
Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Savage treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.
Dr. Savage can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Savage Family Chiropractic, Dr. Savage will perform a full evaluation. Dr. Savage will construct a customized treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.

I followed Dr. Tino here from his previous office because I could never let such an awesome doctor slip through my fingers! I’ve seen at least 3 chiropractors before him, and he is the BEST. I don’t feel like I’m on some assembly line – therapy, therapy, adjustment, bye – he actually spends time with me, LISTENS to me, and his treatment is always in line with my wants AND needs. He also answers all my questions thoroughly, which I greatly appreciate. He brought Mily, my favorite front desk/assistant with him – she always greets me like a friend (even though she roots for the WRONG basketball team). I got to meet Dr. Savage finally, and he seems like a pretty cool dude! All in all, there is a great team at this office and I not only trust their medical expertise but enjoy them as people.
