Sports Injury Rehabilitation in Novato, CA
Sports Injury Rehabilitation in Novato, CA: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent them.
Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:

When I first walked into De Salvo Chiropractic as a new patient a few weeks ago my back was locked up tight with severe pain. Through the attentive care of Doug De Salvo and his great staff I am able to now stand up taller and have a wider range of motion. I have been to several chiros over the years and find his technique aims more toward finesse and accuracy which has not only helped my back but my overall physical and mental health.

My vehicle was rear ended in 2013. I suffered from whiplash. I’ll never forget the day that my neck was loose enough for an adjustment by Dr. DeSalvo. So much pressure and pain was released with one swift movement. To loosen it up enough, I had a few visits prior which consisted of an exam, massage, use of an electrothingy that hurts so good. I came back again this month because I tweaked my neck moving stuff. In two visits, I’m as good as new. Dr. DeSalvo is amazing. Reasonably priced and his front office staff (Lynn) rocks. I texted her on a Sunday asking her appointment availability and she got me in first thing Monday morning. A++++
If you are searching for the best in the business, look no more. Dr. DeSalvo and his staff are just that…the best. Professional service and personable customer service are usually impossible to find, but they do exist here! Dr. DeSalvo was able to diagnose, treat, and prescribe the exact exercises and adjustments I’d been needing for years. His staff helped me stay organized with all of my appointments and always treated me with A+ respect and warmth. This place is top notch through and through!
