Summer is the popular season for getting outdoors and participating in sports. Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Ressler knows that “an increase in activity, may lead to an increase in injury.” It does not matter if you play professionally on a team or enjoy a game with friends, trauma to the body is possible with any physical activity. Oviedo’s top chiropractor advises that you “should always be at your peak performance when playing sports.” Whether it is a shoulder, knee, spine, or ankle joint, it can become misaligned. This can cause pain, swelling and stiffness which limits your range of motion. Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to correct the position of the misalignment and restore joint mobility. Optimal range of motion allows your body to perform physical activity with ease. Therefore, by maintaining spinal alignment and proper range of motion, you lower your risk of getting injured while playing a sport.
After a sports injury, you may be suffering from pain in the neck, back or the extremities (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hips knees and ankles.) Injury or trauma to the body cause muscles and tendons to become inflamed. The swelling and inflammation are what produce pain and limited range of motion. In some cases, the swelling can compress the nerves leading to numbness and tingling in the arms or legs. This pain can range from a severe sprain/strain to an injury that threatens to sideline you for an extended period of time. Oviedo Injury and Wellness Center wants you to be back enjoying sports this summer asap. Dr. Ressler and the OIWC staff’s number one goal is that you recover from a sports injury quickly and effectively. These injuries include:
Common injuries treated at OIWC
Patients from the Oviedo, Winter Springs and greater Orlando area receive personalized treatment from Dr. Ressler to remedy many different sports injuries. A common sports injury the Oviedo chiropractor treats is heel and foot pain. This is often termed as “plantar fasciitis.” The plantar fascia is a band of ligament that connects to the heel bone and fans out to each of your toes. It acts as a support to maintain the arch of your foot. Physical activity such as running or jogging typically cause this condition. Experiencing pain in your foot or heel?

Pain in the elbow region or “tennis elbow” is another common sports injury treated at OIWC. This type of injury consists of pain that radiates from the elbow into the forearm down to the wrist. It is produced from repetitive movements performed by the hand, wrist, and elbow. These motions are typically seen in sports like golfing or tennis. Don’t let pain in your elbow and forearm keep you from getting back on the court! Click here to find out how to treat this condition!
How does Dr. Ressler treat a sports injury?
Dr. Ressler, Oviedo chiropractor will first perform an extensive examination including specific orthopedic and neurological tests to determine your lifestyle and sports history. A customized treatment plan will then be established. Dr. Ressler incorporates a specialized adjusting tool called an “activator” in his treatment protocol. The activator is a spring-loaded device that operates with the up most precision. It gently moves only the specific joints that are out of place back into proper position. By using this device, Dr. Ressler, Oviedo’s premiere chiropractor will restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. The activator technique is so effective that most OIWC patients get significant improvement in only 3 to 4 visits! He also performs trigger point release to soft tissue aspects of the injury. This release removes muscle spasms, muscle guarding and range of motion issues. To increase your results and prevent future injuries, Oviedo’s top chiropractor will teach you proper form and create a customized exercise/stretching routine.
