Services and Techniques with Our Sports Injury Chiropractor in Tacoma

Our chiropractor in Tacoma at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic can help you get off the sidelines faster and stronger with gentle, natural techniques and treatments. Dr. Bakke and Dr. Lee offer a range of services and chiropractic techniques designed to help you recover without the need for unnecessary surgery or pain medication. Some of our sports injury care services include:

Chiropractic Adjustments and Physiotherapy: We use a variety of manual adjustment methods to help realign the spine to relieve pressure off nerves and promote natural healing. Our Tacoma chiropractors also use an instrument based technique called Active Release, the Thompson Method, the Gonstead technique, Palmer techique, and the Cox Table Method. Some physiotherapy tools we use include Erchonia laser, cold and moist heat and impulse adjusters.

Physical Rehabilitation Therapy: Sports injuries can cause loss of muscle and joint mobility, which results in symptoms such as balance issues and strength loss. Our rehabilitation program can help restore these functions and help your body grow stronger as it heals.

Massage Therapy Services: Massage helps improve circulation, reduces swelling and relaxes muscles making them more receptive to chiropractic care and rehab sessions. We also offer HydroMassage, which is a special bed that uses water to massage you while you stay perfectly dry.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care Beyond Injury Relief

Athletes don’t necessarily need to wait for an injury to benefit from chiropractic care. In fact, regular adjustments keep the spine aligned which can help prevent sports injuries. Proper body maintenance is vital to staying at the top of your game, and chiropractic care helps improve mobility, relieve tight muscles and make you a stronger athlete. So, don’t wait until injury strikes—get preventive chiropractic treatments regularly.
