Injury Rehabilitation

Sport therapy and rehabilitation can be a sensitive process whether the injuries occurred in a recreational or professional setting. Recognition that the treatment for each should be tailor fit separates Mellin Chiropractic Care from common sports rehab and therapy centers.

Dr. Mellin and Dr. Fischer’s five step treatment process has proven to help patients recover faster while decreasing risk of residual injuries (sports or personal injury) later on.

  • Physiotherapy modalities (Ultra Sound, Electric Stem)
    • Used to help decrease pain & edema (swelling)
  • Soft Tissue Therapy
    • Used to separate scar tissue to increase blood flow to the location of the injury, which helps increase the healing process.
  • Chiropractic (Joint mobilization)
    • To ensure all your joints are properly positioned, as to increase range of motion & flexibility
  • Therapeutic Exercises(stretching out the tight muscles and strengthening the weaker muscles)
    • This ensures your body’s balanced & functioning in the correct biomechanical fashion. This is VERY important to prevent the same injury in the future.
  • Educate
    • Explain the reason for injury and what you can do to prevent future injuries.


Three things to KNOW about Preventing Injury:

  • Warm up 7 to 10 minutes before any exercise.
  • Stretch [thoroughly] the appropriate muscle groups you worked after exercise 
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated before, during, and after your exercise session. 


Three things to KNOW about Rehabilitating an Injury:

  • Ice for the first 72 hours after the injury. 3 – 5 times a day for 20 mins at a time.
  • The sooner you get treatment [after the Injury], the faster you will recover.
  • Always remember NSAIDS (i.e. Advil), do not fix the problem, they only hide the symptoms!
