Sports Injury Rehabilitation Beneficial for All Patients, Says Century City Chiropractic

Atlanta, Georgia, UNITED STATES

ATLANTA, Feb. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Century City Chiropractic is raising awareness about the benefits of sports injury rehabilitation for all patients, regardless of whether they are professional athletes. Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Jarred Simon provides chiropractic care for professional and recreational sports injuries. The chiropractor says that a combination of chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy and hydro massage are effective for relieving pain and treating the root cause for an injury. This integrated approach to care helps patients heal faster and reduces the risk for future injuries, says Dr. Simon.

Chiropractic care can be beneficial for all sports injury patients, not just professional athletes. That's the message chiropractor Dr. Simon is sharing with Atlanta sports injury patients.

"Injuries can happen to anyone at any age," said Dr. Simon. "You do not have to be a professional athlete to suffer a sports injury that requires rehabilitation care. At Century City Chiropractic, we're committed to making care accessible to all patients, regardless of their age or sports background."

Dr. Simon says that some individuals may be reluctant to seek professional treatment because they think an injury will get better on its own.

"While immediate pain from an injury may fade over time, this does not mean the injury is fully healed," said Dr. Simon. "In fact, individuals who start exercising too soon after an injury risk doing further damage to their bodies. Sports injury rehabilitation is important because it not only supports a patient's natural healing process, but also allows us to identify the root cause for a patient's pain. By identifying the underlying problem, we can help patients take the necessary steps to correct this issue and avoid future pain."

Dr. Simon treats patients that range from individuals who may occasionally jog or play golf to professional athletes training for world-class competitions. Dr. Simon's patients include Olympic Gold medalist Gwen Torrence.

"I experienced pain starting in my lower back through my buttocks and down my entire left leg. I found Dr. Simon on the Internet after two unsuccessful doctors," said Torrence. "With his experience, knowledge, and positive outlook, he had me out of pain in a week and a half."

Typical sports injury treatment programs integrate chiropractic adjustments with physiotherapy exercises and hydro massage. Adjustments target underlying spinal misalignments that may be exacerbating pain and increasing the risk for injury, says Dr. Simon. Physiotherapy treatments help to reduce inflammation and swelling while bringing a fuller range of mobility back to the body.

"Physiotherapy helps the muscles, ligaments and joints grow stronger thanks to progressive motion and movement challenges that are customized to a patient's recovery stage," said Dr. Simon. "We typically combine these treatments with hydro massage, which uses high pressure steam to relax tense and sore muscles."

In addition to sports injuries, Century City Chiropractic treats auto accident injuries. Visit to learn more.
