Sports Injury

Professional athletes are constantly reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Competitors train rigorously and take their diets to a new level every day. Yet despite the conscientious care and precautions that athletes follow, most experience musculoskeletal injuries at one time or another.

Chiropractors and Sports Injuries

Chiropractors are to athletes as cardiologists are to those who suffer from cardiovascular disease. Athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game icing their injuries and taking pain medication. This is because medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather treat each injury individually. Meanwhile, chiropractic treatment offers a balanced, holistic approach, by using spinal adjustments and physical therapy techniques to help the patient’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments return to their normal function.

Chiropractic care meticulously tends to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Additionally, chiropractic care ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working harmoniously in their healthiest, most natural state.

Professional athletes recognize tremendous value in chiropractic care because they realize that it helps them maximize athletic performance. Whether you’re an athlete or weekend warrior, receiving chiropractic care will enable you to reach an optimum level of achievement without breaking yourself.

Concussion and Sports

Much well deserved press has been given to the role head injuries, common in sports, has on the health and functioning of the brain. Common symptoms related to concussions include fogginess, inability to focus, sleep problems, irritability among other things. If you or someone you know has had a head trauma and exhibits some of these symptoms, coming on for evaluation and care is most important. Our office specializes in Neurologically Based chiropractic care using state of the art techniques to help balance the brain and help the body heal.

Check Out What Our Patients Have to Say

  • "I began to develop symptoms of what would eventually turn into a frozen shoulder. I tried time off, pain medications, physical therapy, and threats of surgery - all to no avail. Then, my naturopath recommended that I see Dr. Bobby Jones. I began treatment in November and began to see improvement almost immediately. I am no longer being woken by pain and I have almost no pain during the day; my range of motion has dramatically increased. I am confident that I will regain full use of my shoulder without surgery, thanks to Dr. Jones. He is highly skilled, extremely intuitive, and up-to-date on all the latest techniques. It has been a joy to work with him and I plan to be a patient of his indefinitely."

  • "Until I found Dr. Bobby Jones, no one seemed to be able to give me a reasonable diagnosis or treatment that could help reverse my escalating difficulties in walking. Dr. Bobby Jones' adjustments have kept me from going back to using an electric scooter, which I had been dependent on for a year! Dr. Jones first adjusted my pelvis and after only one treatment, I was able to walk through the airports almost pain-free, without having to use the wheelchair service. Six months later, I am still walking well, gaining muscle strength and physical endurance because of Bobby's expertise and willing partnership in my quest for health. I'm even able to go dancing sometimes! As a chiropractic physician, Dr. Jones not only has good skills, but also has a wonderful, caring "can do" approach to problems his patients face. I would highly recommend him to anyone."

  • "I have been going to see Dr. Bobby Jones for almost three years now. My doctor referred me to him when I hurt my lower back at work; it hurt to walk. I was nervous to go see a chiropractor - the thought of someone cracking my bones freaked me out. I went to see him and immediately felt that I was important, and that it was important to Dr. Jones that I got better, and quickly. I explained to Dr. Jones my hesitations about this type of treatment and also what was hurting. He listened and he told me about the Activator Method and how he could do the adjustments without it being as "scary" as the manual adjustment. I felt so much better after my first adjustment. I could walk without incredible pain. Dr. Jones has gone above and beyond any expectation I have had for a health care provider. I feel very at ease having Dr. Jones do my adjustments. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I have walked in there having a bad day and left with a huge smile on my face. I highly recommend Dr. Jones!"

  • "My husband has had acid reflux for four years. He takes an over the counter drug, with many side affects. Dr. Jones suggested he take enzymes instead. It has been two weeks and he has no more acid reflux. It is unbelievable. He can't believe it was that easy."

  • "Thank you so much for the comfort and relief. Not only do I love coming to your office for restoration of physical health, but also for the friendship, community, and emotional health. The difference after just one visit is amazing. Thank you so much for everything - I look forward to my next visit."
