ABOUT SPORTING INJURIES
Throughout our lives, most of us at some time or another have played sports either competitively or socially.
We are also realising more and more the importance and benefits of regular exercise in our pursuit to live healthier happier lives. At GCHCG we specialise in various Dry Needling and muscle release techniques. This is especially useful in reducing recovery time from injury for athletes. Basically, getting better faster!
Chiropractic treatment in the management and prevention of sporting injuries has come to the forefront in the past few decades. Athletes and other health professionals are appreciating the results that can be achieved through Chiropractic care. Our Chiropractors focus largely on the actions and movement patterns of our bodies.

The Chiropractors at our clinic have years of clinical experience. They have to abide by stringent guidelines that ensure they keep up with the latest techniques and technologies to assist you in achieving your desired health outcome quicker.
We will conduct a thorough physical, neurological and orthopedic examination to help identify any compensations or other problems that may be a result of your initial condition. Areas of weakness will be identified and cold laser will then be used to reduce the scar tissue and start cell repair and regeneration in the affected area. This used alongside conventional Chiropractic treatments will get you on the road to your goals much quicker.
The number of treatments required is largely dependent on the severity of the injury and how long the injury has been present. A general rule of thumb is the longer the injury has been present, the longer it will take to heal.
