Improve Your Performance with Sports Medicine
Sports are physically demanding, and those involving direct physical contact can cause a wide range of bodily injuries. In addition, overtraining can lead to muscle and ligament tears, sprains, and strains. At Texas Injury Clinic in Fort Worth, TX, we offer sports medicine to address the pain and discomfort associated with injuries and help prevent future sports injuries from occurring. Our doctors are trained in advanced techniques and can perform a variety of chiropractic and physical therapy treatments to address your unique needs.
Initial Chiropractic Exam
Chiropractic treatment takes a natural, non-invasive, and medication-free approach to healthcare. During a chiropractic exam, your doctor can realign vertebral subluxations by performing spinal adjustments, helping the body to heal itself. Using this approach, our doctors can treat the root of the issue rather than simply addressing the symptoms.
During your initial consultation, your doctor can conduct a physical exam and review your medical history. In addition, we may request x-rays and tests for a comprehensive overview of your symptoms. Your examination may include:
- Orthopedic Testing: This type of text can check the soft tissues, nerves, tendons, and reflex responses throughout your body to determine the precise location of the injury.
- Range of Motion Testing: Through a series of motility and mobility exercises including twisting, bending, and raising limbs, our team can check your current range of motion.
- Palpation of Muscles: During this exam, the doctor will feel along your spine and surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments to locate misaligned vertebrae that can cause musculoskeletal issues.
After evaluating your condition, we can combine any number of treatment options into a comprehensive plan.
Sports Injury Treatment
We have a variety of sports medicine treatments available at Texas Injury Clinic, including different forms of therapy and rehabilitation.
DRX9000™ Spinal Decompression System
This device can help relieve nerve compression in the spine caused by bulging or herniated (slipped) discs, or bone spurs. During treatment, the machine will gently stretch the affected area, allowing water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to reenter the spine and promote healing.
Using a variety of therapeutic techniques and exercises, physical therapy can help restore function, reduce pain, and increase strength and flexibility after an injury. In addition, this treatment can help you optimize your performance and prevent future re-injury.
This treatment is beneficial for sports injury prevention as well as injury recovery. During treatment, a licensed massage therapist can target specific muscle groups using advanced techniques. This process can help muscles heal faster after strenuous training. Through routine massage therapy, our team can also help you improve your range of motion and flexibility.
You can be assigned in-office and at-home exercises, which can help to encourage a quick recovery after injury or surgery.

If you do not experience sufficient relief from nonsurgical methods, our doctors can refer you to a surgical specialist to address a sports injury.
