Sports Injury Prevention & Treatment

Chiropractors are trained to assess, diagnose and manage sports-related injuries as part of their core competencies. In fact, through a comprehensive history and physical examination, chiropractors can help determine the cause of pain and dysfunction as well as recommend an appropriate plan of management. Conservative care offered by chiropractors, dependent on the injury and mechanism, may include joint manipulation and mobilisation, soft tissue therapies, adjunct modalities, rehabilitation and individualized exercises and lifestyle advice to restore proper function, enhance healing of damaged tissue and reduce pain. Chiropractors can also help, in partnership, determine the best strategy to return to play.

Injury prevention is key. Before starting a new exercise program or sport, visit your chiropractor to determine what measures can be taken to prevent injury or enhance performance.

Kinesio Taping

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.

  • Positive physiological effects
  • Rehabilitative for injuries
  • Preventative applications

Based upon years of clinical use, Kinesio® Tex Tape is specifically applied to the patient based upon their needs after evaluation. The findings of the clinical evaluation or assessment dictate the specifics of the Kinesio® Tex Tape application and other possible treatments or modalities.

Graston Technique

Dr. Bigelow is proficient in several Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (ASTM) techniques, including Graston.

The Graston Technique is a patented form of manual therapy that uses stainless steel tools to perform muscle mobilizations. It is a kind of soft tissue mobilization used mainly by chiropractors. You can think of the Graston Technique as a deeper, more intense version of manual therapy. Bigelow Chiropractic use specially designed Graston tools in two ways. First, to locate muscle knots or restrictions. Brian does this by running the tools over your skin to feel for fibrous or scar tissue that may be causing you pain or restricting your movement. Second, he uses the tools to break up that tissue to restore mobility and function.
