Sports and physical activity in general are great ways to keep your musculoskeletal system in optimal shape. Cardio exercises help your lungs and heart function properly. And this isn't taking into account the many other benefits or how they can impact a person mentally. Unfortunately, sports injuries can hold a person back from working out and getting that much-needed exercise. Dr. Evelyne Leone, Dr. Joseph Valdez, Dr. Dana Zappala, and Dr. Ron Maugeri of Malibu Wellness, serving Malibu, CA, and the nearby region, can offer all-natural sports medicine for pain relief, healing, and preventative purposes.
Types of Sports Injuries We Help With
Any time a person is in motion, he or she may sustain an injury. And with all the motion of a sport, it's easy for a person to misstep, get too focused in the game, or even get into a pile-up with other players. This isn't even taking into account the repetitive stress injuries that occur when you've been using the same soft tissue over and over again, or possibly even wearing the wrong shoes as you work out.
For all of these reasons, our sports medicine practice in Malibu, CA, offers care for sudden, acute injuries and those related to repetitive stress. Some examples of the injuries we treat include the following:
- Runner's knee
- Plantar fasciitis
In the area we're in, we see a large number of people with surfing and hiking injuries. This isn't taking into account the people who come to us after sustaining an injury during a team sport or those who visit us after developing an injury from walking, jogging, or running.
How We Help
At our practice, we assess your current condition. We then customize a treatment plan that helps with pain management, healing, or both. It may consist of spinal adjustments if you have generalized back pain or sustain a back-related injury.
We also offer physiotherapy, which consists of a practitioner guiding you through exercises that work that part of the body. They're slow and gradually increase in difficulty to help you regain function and flexion at a comfortable pace for you. The exercises also promote blood flow, which is also beneficial to healing your injury. Massage therapy and other treatments may be used along with your treatment to optimize your results.
Not to mention, we can help you prevent an injury in the future through education and strengthening and stretching exercises.
