Chiropractic and Sports Injuries in San Francisco

sports injuries san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for sports injuries in downtown San Francisco for over 23 years now. 

Whether it be a sprain strain from weekend warrior activities or a herniated disc in the neck or the back, chiropractic can help…especially a sports chiropractor that spends the majority of their day treating sports injuries.

We learned early on that the combination of chiropractic, medical care, physical therapy, and sports trainers, is a potent combination for correctly diagnosing and treating sports injuries.

Chiropractic is great for preventing and treating the majority of sports related musculoskeletal conditions that we see in our clinics. But to be able to handle the full spectrum of sports related traumas and injuries it takes more.

Our primary clinic Chiro-Medical Group Inc. is fully equipped with digital x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound and many other advanced technologies geared towards treating sports injuries. We also have a very large staff of sports chiropractors, physical medicine doctors (MD’s) nurses, trainers, and support staff. Our clinic director Scott Calzaretta has even been a team doctor for the US Olympic Team.

Our satellite clinic is Chiro-Medical Group Express (CMGE) and is a few blocks away at the Embarcadero Center.  CMGE offers express, walk-in service for busy office workers on the go as well as sports injuries treatment  and spinal decompression for herniated and bulging discs.

Many of our patients visit both clinics depending on their needs.

The most important thing when it comes to effectively treating sports injuries is a correct diagnosis and proper treatment protocols. Most athletes want to get back to their sports training and performing and require special expertise that not all chiropractors can provide.

When it comes to treating sports injuries in San Francisco we stand above the rest and most of our medical team are athletes themselves. This really does matter.

So, if you live or work near the SF Financial District and have suffered a sports injury that requires treatment, we would love to meet up with you.

To schedule an appointment with a sports medicine doctor in San Francisco please call 415-495-2225 (CMG) or 415-392-2225 (CMGE).

Back Pain and Nurses

San Francisco Chiropractor Comments:

Nursing and back pain A very high percentage of nurses have disabling back pain according to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics. This has also been my experience as a back pain provider in downtown San Francisco.

The reason for such a high incidence of low back pain in nurses is because it is very hard work. Nurses are on their feet a lot on hard floors. Nurses are constantly assisting patients, often times having to lift them in awkward positions…the worst thing for the back. And nursing can be very stressful because you are dealing with life and death.

At Executive Express Chiropractic we have helped more nurses with nonsurgical spinal decompression (for chronic back pain) than any other profession. But we are mostly treating patients after the fact…after the damage has been done. There are studies underway right now to try to figure out how to keep nurses healthy and on the job so they don't miss so much work…then go out on disability. 

Exercise programs, regular chiropractic care, and nutrition therapy should all being considered….especially "Core Exercise" training…which totally makes sense. Prevention is the key. Nurses need to train like professional athletes…because that's how physically demanding it can be. 

Anyway…check out this article entitled: Resolving Back Pain In Nurses. It goes into great detail about the severity of the problem and offers some interesting solutions.

If you would like to make an appointment at Executive Express Chiropractic in downtown San Francisco please call 415-392-2225 or request an appointment online.
