NYC Chiropractic Center has Powerful Treatments for a Range of Sports Injuries
Patients of all ages and activity levels are susceptible to sports and fitness injuries – everyone from fitness enthusiasts, professional athletes, marathon runners, and occasional exercisers.
Wear-and-tear can occur from regular exercise as well as from isolated incidents of excessive force that can cause trauma to the spine, bones, or soft tissue. Because tissue needs regular movement in order to heal and avoid atrophy, we take care in providing treatment options that allow for activity and strengthening during the course of recovery, providing optimum results for NYC patients suffering from sports injuries.
Sports injuries can fall under two categories. The first is overuse, in which patients regularly perform a repetitive motion over long periods of time, causing progressive injury that increases discomfort and pain over time. The second is trauma, which is normally an isolated incident where the patient becomes injured while performing an exercise. Examples of trauma include muscle sprains, tendon or ligament tears, and more. Whether because of overuse or trauma, most sports injuries are treatable without the need for surgery and the results are superior when treatment begins as soon as possible following the injury. Untreated injuries can cause long-term issues and disabilities, so seeking treatment promptly is key for optimum healing and recovery.
Dr. Steven Shoshany and his team of expert doctors are well-versed in the latest techniques for the non-surgical treatment of sports injuries in NYC. At our state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation facility in downtown Manhattan, we have successfully treated patients suffering from various types of sports injuries, such as:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Torn ligaments

- Muscle sprains
- Tennis elbow
- Hip injuries

All of our treatment methods are non-surgical and require no downtime, allowing patients to progressively recover while maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle. Over the course of treatment, patients can expect a continuing decrease of inflammation and discomfort, as the affected tissue heals and regenerates. Some of our most sought-after treatments for patients who wish to recover from sports injuries in NYC include:
Cold laser therapy – a painless low-level laser beam penetrates the tissue and promotes tissue regeneration at the cellular level
Active Release Technique (ART)® - a patented technique that provides advanced soft tissue mobilization to release tension and promote healing
The Graston Technique® - instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation for the removal of restrictive scar tissue and enhanced healing
Medical massage therapy – our licensed massage therapists mobilize the affected soft tissue while promoting relaxation and healing
Kinesio taping – Expertly applied kinetic tape enhances healing and performance while preventing injury
Acupuncture – recommended for the treatment of localized pain as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan
Therapeutic Ultrasound – promotes healing and helps restore proper movement and function to injured soft tissue
Chiropractic adjustments – healthy spinal alignment is restored, and any entrapped soft tissue and nerves are released, promoting long-term pain relief and overall health
In addition to assisting NYC patients in recovering from sports injuries, our treatments are also recommended for injury prevention.
