The Athletes Secret Weapon: A Combined Approach Chiropractic & SoftWave TRT Therapy!

Published May 1st, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Athletes often experience pain, inflammation, and injuries due to the physical demands of their sport. SoftWave (TRT) Tissue Regeneration Therapy and chiropractic care at Camarata Chiropractic in Rochester NY can help athletes with pain relief, increase range of motion, decrease inflammation, tendinitis, bursitis, sprains, strains, sports injury, injury prevention, faster recovery times, and optimizing performance in sports. These two treatments can be combined to provide athletes with a comprehensive approach to improving their athletic performance and recovery.

Chiropractic care focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, including injuries related to sports. Chiropractic adjustments can help improve alignment and range of motion, reducing pain and inflammation in the body. SoftWave TRT Therapy uses electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing process, helping to regenerate and repair damaged tissue. This treatment is particularly effective in treating conditions such as tendinitis, bursitis, sprains, strains and sports injuries.

Combining chiropractic care and SoftWave TRT Therapy can help athletes recover faster from injuries and improve their performance on the field or court. By optimizing the body's alignment and promoting tissue regeneration and repair, athletes can experience increased strength, flexibility, and range of motion, which can lead to a decrease in injuries and an increase in athletic performance.

Research has shown that chiropractic care can be effective in improving athletic performance and recovery.

5 Reasons Athletes should combine Chiropractic Adjustments and SoftWave TRT Therapy (*extracorporeal shockwave therapy):

1.    Improved Range of Motion: Both chiropractic adjustments and extracorporeal shockwave therapy have been shown to improve range of motion in athletes. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the spine and joints, reducing stiffness and increasing flexibility, while extracorporeal shockwave therapy helps to break up scar tissue and promote healing of soft tissue injuries.

2.    Faster Recovery Times: When used in combination, chiropractic adjustments and extracorporeal shockwave therapy can help athletes recover faster from injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow, while extracorporeal shockwave therapy helps to promote tissue regeneration and accelerate healing.

3.    Pain Relief: Both chiropractic adjustments and extracorporeal shockwave therapy can provide athletes with pain relief. Chiropractic adjustments help to realign the spine and reduce pressure on nerves, while extracorporeal shockwave therapy helps to break up scar tissue and reduce inflammation.

4.    Injury Prevention: By combining chiropractic adjustments and extracorporeal shockwave therapy, athletes can help to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place. Chiropractic adjustments help to keep the spine and joints aligned and functioning properly, while extracorporeal shockwave therapy helps to promote healing and prevent the formation of scar tissue.

5.    Improved Athletic Performance: Both chiropractic adjustments and extracorporeal shockwave therapy can help to optimize athletic performance. Chiropractic adjustments can help to improve range of motion, reduce pain, and increase flexibility, while extracorporeal shockwave therapy can help to promote tissue regeneration and accelerate healing, allowing athletes to perform at their best.
