Millions of people of all ages are affected by sports injuries.

Sports and what they do
Injuries from athletic activities can harm the neck, upper and lower back, as well as the upper and lower extremities. After all, heavy impact and repetitive motion cause muscular spasms, pain, swelling, fracture, disc herniation, headaches, torn ligaments/tendons, and more. Often, symptoms hide for a period of time and then express themselves suddenly and in unexpected ways.
How your chiropractor can help
Practicing at our Federal Way office is Dr. Winger, a chiropractor certified in Chiropractic Biophysics, an advanced system of spine care that focuses on uncovering the source of dysfunction. He formulates complete and individualized care plans that can include:
- Hands-on spinal adjustments (for misalignments called subluxations)
- Massage therapy for stiff and aching muscles
- Traction for spinal re-alignment
- Programs of physical therapy and rehabilitative exercises
- Ice and heat therapy
- Spinal decompression to relieve pressure on herniated discs
- Electrical stimulation (for pain relief)
- Counseling in proper nutrition
Additionally, Dr. Winger focuses on ways the sports enthusiast can avoid injury in the future. Statistics Canada says that most injuries North American adults suffer come from work and sports. Preventive measures are key to injury avoidance and quicker recovery if/when problems do occur.
