When you live an athletic life, you are at risk of experiencing a sports injury.

What Is Sports Rehabilitation?
Sports rehab is the process through which a sports injury and any symptoms associated with it are treated. It allows patients to return to pain-free mobility using various treatment methods. At Centennial Chiropractic Clinic, these methods often include the following and more:
- Exercises designed specifically to stretch, strengthen, and rebuild damaged areas
- Massage therapy to help relieve tension and improve the flow of healing nutrients to the injury, which may help speed up recovery

The length of your treatment will also depend on the specifics of your condition and how well your body responds to each treatment. If the desired results are not reached, Dr. Muzzana can help adapt the strategy.
