Sports Medicine in Westfield, NJ
Westfield Health & Rehabilitation
Sports Injury Chiropractor and Physical Therapy in Westfield, NJ: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Visiting our state-of-the-art chiropractic and physical rehabilitation center in Westfield can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can build strength to prevent them.
Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. It is important to take precautionary measures but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated or allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
Sports injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports injuries can cause further injuries if left untreated:
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, Dr. Carnucci and his team treats and helps prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury.
Our doctors can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Westfield Health & Rehabilitation, we will perform a full evaluation. Our chiropractors and licensed physical therapists will construct a customized treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.

What Our Patients are Saying…
I love this place. My family and I have been coming here since it opened. My husband has a bad back and he comes every time he has a problem, they are helpful and they have good hours. My son after a shoulder injury went to a orthopedic and somewhere else for PT, after 1 month with no improvement, we had to come here. They improved and strengthened his shoulder and made it ready for rowing season. I’ve come here with sciatica pain, gone is a couple of months. I’ve come here after a car accident. I’m recently coming for a bum knee and I need to get it in shape in order to hike the Grand Canyon for my 50th Birthday. Caring & effective. They don’t rush you, they take the time to understand where your pain is and they treat it. Love it.*
