Sports Chiropractor

Man with knee painIf you are active in various sports, you don’t want to have to sit on the sidelines. Getting an injury can mean you’re unable to play or practice as you’d like. At Sydney Allied Health Clinic, we understand that you want to get back to your activities as quickly as possible. We’ve helped many of our patients get through sports injuries, including treating elite athletes while George was employed to work for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games at the Soccer Event.

Some of the most common sports injuries are

  • Sprained ankle
  • Knee injury (collateral ligament or meniscal tear)
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Rotator cuff problems
  • Arthritis

Our Thorough Evaluation Process

Chiropractor Dr George Prorellis performs hundreds of forms of testing to ensure that the cause of your problem is pinpointed. Joints will be aligned so that you have a full range of motion. If there are any hindrances in your movement, the surrounding soft tissues will be released to further enhance your mobility.

There are accessory treatments available that we often used for sports injuries, including:

  • Ultrasound therapy – breaks down scar tissue and increases local blood flow. All of this combines to increase healing rates in the area
  • Dry needling – Involves the insertion of an acupuncture needle. It’s applied to a trigger point or a hyper-irritable area of muscle
  • Cross friction trigger point – used to increase circulation and release areas that are tight; particularly around joints and where there are adhesions within the muscles or tendons.
  • Active Release Techniques® – a soft tissue method that focuses on relieving tissue tension which can develop in tissues as a result of overload due to repetitive use.

Our clinic’s reputation is based on listening, all our practitioners implement a client-centered approach.
