Maintaining an optimum fitness level enhances endurance and reduces the risk of injury when participating in sporting activities. Sports massage is an excellent tool to improve performance and reduce recovery time after competition or an injury. It is especially important for those who continuously train and workout.
DuPage Health & Wellness Center offers a broad range of services for people who take their fitness seriously. Our chiropractors, Dr. Katie King and Dr. Richard Valdez, along with our certified support staff understand everyone who engages in any physical activity will occasionally suffer an injury or need assistance preparing for a sporting event, such as participating in a charity-sponsored 5K or a pickup game of basketball.
Our clinic provides multidisciplinary alternative medicine solutions to keep you in top performance condition, including:
The human body has extensive capabilities. When the body is fueled with proper nutrition, gets adequate exercise, and a wellness-focused lifestyle is maintained, the body has the capacity to naturally heal itself. Alternative medicine therapies, including chiropractic adjustments, that keep the spinal column strong and properly aligned give the body more opportunities to stay healthy and recover quickly from illnesses and injuries.
Our chiropractors focus on returning your spine to full functionality, relieving compressed nerves and realigning vertebrae. Our trained massage therapists can help your body recuperate faster when injuries impact soft tissues. Muscles need plenty of oxygen to stay healthy. Massage therapy treatments enable efficient circulatory functions, which improves oxygen delivery to tissues and muscles.
Deep tissue massage is used to treat many sports related injuries from plantar fasciitis to rotator cuff tendonitis. By applying deep, precisely targeted pressure, in slow, even strokes, deep tissue massage therapy stretches the plantar fascia, relieving stress and pain. For shoulder injuries, this technique may be used to either break down adhesions that are blocking blood and oxygen flow to the affected area or to relieve inflammation that triggers pain.
Other benefits include:
Our clinicians want you to have access to every resource available to stay healthy and recover from illnesses and injuries faster. This is why we use a whole-body approach to wellness that includes chiropractic care and other alternative medicine solutions, like sports massage and trained health coaches.
