Sports Injury

If you’ve sustained a sports injury or just want to improve your performance, Dr. Andrew Wiese at Milton Chiropractic offers the athletes of Milton, Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, and surrounding GA areas personalized sports chiropractic care to help you achieve your goals.

5 Types of Sports Chiropractic Treatment Techniques

Playing sports – whether professionally or on the weekends – can be very good for your health. However, injuries are often par for the course. As a fellow athlete, Dr. Wiese at Milton Chiropractic is dedicated to offering the athletes of Milton and surrounding GA areas the best sports chiropractic techniques possible, including those listed below.


Restoring and maintaining spinal alignment is key to treating and preventing sports injuries. However, not every athlete needs the same type of adjustment. Dr. Weise utilizes various adjustment techniques, including manual diversified technique, activator technique, Thompson drop-table technique, and extremity adjustments to ensure every athlete gets the care they need.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical muscle stimulation is a technology that sends small electrical pulses to the muscles and nerves. This promotes tissue regeneration to aid in healing. It also helps the muscles relax and prevents muscular atrophy, all of which are beneficial for both healing and post-workout recovery.

Soft Tissue Techniques

Tension, trigger points, and scar tissue can all cause pain and impede your range of motion. Techniques like myofascial release, trigger point therapy, active release technique, instrument-assisted soft tissue massage, and percussion massage can all break up tension and knots in the soft tissues, improving blood flow and range of motion.

Flexion-Distraction Therapy

Flexion-Distraction therapy combines the power of both adjustments and decompression to treat issues of the spine. It helps relieve disc and nerve compression, tension, neck pain, headaches, herniated discs, numbness and tingling in the extremities, and more.

Therapeutic Exercises

While sports and regular workouts are great for general health, there are times you need something a bit more targeted. Therapeutic exercises include stretching and strengthening movements that target specific areas of the body. They are used to help aid in recovery and prevent injuries.

Whether you’re a pro athlete or just enjoy a family game on the weekends in Milton, Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, or surrounding GA areas, Dr. Wiese at Milton Chiropractic provides the customized sports chiropractic care you need. Call (678) 404-8944 to schedule your appointment today.
