Experiencing a Workout Injury in Tacoma


Working out is good for your health in many ways. Regular exercise helps build muscle mass, burn fat, and reduce your risk for injury and illness. Spending any time at the gym, training at home, or getting in shape for sports, however, does increase your risk for experiencing a workout injury.

Fortunately, our Tacoma chiropractor at Proctor Chiropractic can help reduce pain and dysfunction associated with workout injury. Chiropractic care can even help shorten recover time and reduce your risk for re-injury.

Our Tacoma Chiropractors Treat Workout Injuries
Anyone, from elite athlete to the weekend warrior, can experience a workout injury. Even walking can result in injury, especially to your ankles or knees.

Our chiropractors, Dr. George Keogh and Dr. Joseph Luke, treat many common types of workout injuries, including:

  • Muscle pull or muscle strain
  • Ankle sprain
  • Wrist sprain
  • Shoulder injury
  • Knee injury
  • Shin splints
  • Tendinitis

Our chiropractors of Tacoma, WA can also help you recover from wrist or ankle dislocation occurring during a workout. Chiropractic care properly aligns the bones of your spine and other joints to improve posture and reduce workload stress on your neck, shoulders, and hips. Other therapies administered by our chiropractors, such as cold laser therapy, reduce swelling and improve circulation to the affected area in a way that optimizes your body’s natural healing process. Pain management, as administered by a chiropractor, makes it easier to live with the discomfort associated with workout injuries.

From neck or back pain to hip and knee problems, workout injuries can potentially cause serious damage to your musculoskeletal system. Left untreated or poorly treated, a workout injury can keep you from exercising as you should. Our chiropractors take a safe and effective non-invasive approach to workout injury rehabilitation, supporting pain relief without the need for medications or surgery. At Proctor Chiropractic, we have an integrative and holistic healing approach that include chiropractic care, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and cold laser therapy to help you recover from your workout injury.
