Sports Injury Treatments

Sports injuries are common among adults, teens, and children. If you are actively participating in sports activities, you will likely at some point have an injury. Dr. Bruce Handelsman and Dr. Catherine Hall of Nyack Wellness in Nyack, NY offer the treatment you need to get back into action as quickly as possible. 

Cold Laser

Cold laser therapy uses light to treat inflammation in the area that has been injured and to help treat pain deep in the tissue. It helps speed up recovery by increasing circulation and stimulating the nerves. 

Spinal Decompression

Back injuries are often the result of sports injuries. Especially in contact sports, there may be damage done to the vertebra and the discs between. When this happens, spinal decompression is a treatment that can help the disc to go back into its normal spot and take the pressure off of the nerve. Sports with impacts, rotation, and repetitive motion can all damage the back. 

Spinal adjustments

When the vertebrae have become misaligned, your chiropractor can help to get things back in line. This can happen on any part of the spine depending on the sport you are taking part in. Chiropractors have a variety of different adjustment techniques, and they will discuss the options they offer with the patient. 

Nutritional therapy

The right combination of nutrition can help an athlete to get the correct amount of fuel and fluid.  Your chiropractor will discuss the nutrition that can help the body to recover quicker and with better healing results. 


Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to treat inflammation and pain that result from sports injuries. It is done in the office with a handheld device. The waves cause vibration that massages the affected area, promoting healing at the cellular level. 

Therapeutic exercise

Therapeutic exercise is targeted at very specific areas that need to be stretched. Stretching is important for recovery and to keep soft tissues from compromising your mobility and balance. It allows you to continue your recovery at home between visits to your chiropractor.
