Many people look forward to the winter months to enjoy skiing or snowboarding. These recreational sports can be hard on the body with lots of dynamic movement patterns. Even the more advanced skiers and snowboarders take their spills and crashes. At Rainier Sports & Spinal Rehab in Puyallup, Washington, our sports rehab team can help you get past your aches and pains.
Beginners tend to have different injuries than experienced skiers and riders. The most common minor injuries are tendon and ligament strains and sprains. More severe injuries can include tendon and ligament tears, fractures, and head injuries. Skiing is harder on the knees than snowboarding but easier on the ankles and feet.
If you have been injured on the slopes, visiting our sports chiropractor right away can help you make a speedy recovery. We can help you get an accurate diagnosis for your injury, relieve pain, and support the injury while it heals. Our sports chiropractic services will help you find drug-free pain relief and non-invasive healing techniques:
Most of these therapies are complementary, and we may suggest any combination of them. For example, manual therapy keeps muscles relaxed so that they do not pull a recently-adjusted joint back out of alignment, and physical rehab helps to strengthen those muscles without allowing them to become too tense. Kinesio taping supports the injury while it heals, without restricting your ability to perform activities such as physical rehabilitation.
Here at Rainier Sports & Spinal Rehab, we provide sports chiropractic care to patients in Puyallup WA, as well as South Hill, Tacoma, and surrounding areas. We offer evidence-based rehabilitation care that is supported by the latest research, as well as many methods of treating snowboarding and skiing injuries.

I always recommend Dr. Earle when people ask me where I go for my back care! No pressure or need to pre pay for months in advance. I just come when I need to and also get my wonderful massages from Krys! Love to feel papered and actually take care of myself once in a while:) Fantastic staff, all around!
