Sports Injury Treatment in Westwood NJ: If you’re an athlete, you understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help you heal faster when you’ve suffered sports injuries and helps to prevent them.
Sports Injuries Can Limit Your Performance and Cause Pain
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing in. As an active person, it is important for you to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries happen. Often these conditions are a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and decrease your athletic abilities.
Sports or training injuries can cause the following symptoms:
- Burning, dull pain
- Muscle Pains
- Muscle Spasms
Sports Injuries can Cause Further Injuries if Not Treated
Chiropractors can help athletes by relieving their pain and helping them heal faster after an injury. Many athletes try to mask pain with medication, but this can lead to further risk and damage to the body. At Westwood Family Chiropractic, our trained staff will perform a full evaluation. We will construct a treatment plan to get you feeling your best and back to doing what you love.
Although many people think that chiropractic is solely limited to the spine, chiropractors treat and can help prevent injuries of the neck, back, shoulders, knees, ankles and more. When the spine is perfectly aligned, this can alleviate tension in the body, decreases inflammation and allows the nervous system to function optimally.
When the spine is aligned, vital nutrients, water and body can travel throughout the body easily. It can also increase the immune system, which is ideal for anyone with a busy and active lifestyle. This allows the body to function better and become less susceptible to injury. If you’re experiencing pain from a sports injury, consider seeing a chiropractor. You may want to schedule regular check-ups to prevent injuries and to keep your body performing properly.

This is a very friendly, caring chiropractic practice. From my very first appointment I felt comfortable and in competent hands.
The doctors and office staff make you feel like you are family. After only a few visits the problems I sought relief for began to subside. One such problem being insomnia lessened substantially. A coworker has also begun seeking better health by becoming a patient of these nurturing doctors. Highly recommend this practice.
I found this chiropractic just by google. When I visited I was struggling with numbness on my left arm and my left ear started ringing. It’s been almost 5 months I’ve been attending both Dr.Gurmans, my progress surprised me. My symptoms improved since couple of adjustments and even better than before. Dr.Cathy, Dr.Jett and team are the best. They truly care about every patient and their treatment plan. I have seen such a significant difference in my health since coming here. I am grateful and highly recommend them.
Dr. Cathy is my chiropractor. She is gentle, knowledgeable, and caring. Scheduling is flexible, and is always arranged for any last minute problems or concerns. I highly recommend Westwood Family Chiropractic.
Drs. Cathy and Jett are extremely knowledgable about chiropractic and the body. Their warm, inviting practice put me at ease, and they deliver on a great adjustment. I was very happy with the care I received at Westwood Family Chiropractic, and I highly recommend them both!
This is the only place to go for an adjustment. Dr. Jett and Dr. Kathy are caring and upbeat and very professional. The staff is wonderful, especially Sammi, who always has a smile to share.
Having an auto immune disorder, my intestines were feeling down and out. I was receiving medications for the side-effects of the disease, but not the cause. Since Westwood Family Chiropractic has started adjusting me, (specifically my middle back) I have had steady improvements. I would and will recommend Westwood Family Chiropractic.

I was recently in a car accident that left me with some terrible neck pain and headaches. Rather than taking medication for my pain, it was recommended by a family member that I try Chiropractic Therapy. It was my first time going to the chiropractor, and at first I wasn’t sure about it. After learning about how Chiropractic care could not only help with my pain, but also better my health I decided to give it a try. It has been two months of therapy and I haven’t had to use any pain medications for my injuries. Dr. Jett Gurman and Dr. Cathy Gurman at Westwood Family Chiropractic have been very educational and helpful with my Chiropractic care. I feel that I have more energy throughout the day and have less aches and pains. Thank you Westwood Family Chiropractic!
I’ve had intermittent flare-ups of back and neck pain and chiropractic has always helped get me better quickly. I’ve been to many chiropractors over the past 25 years, and Drs. Jett and Cathy are both excellent chiropractors and always treat me and everyone else that walks through the door like family. Their staff are friendly and professional which makes the office visit very comfortable. Their text reminders for my appointments help me stick to my treatment plan. Thanks Doc!
Westwood family chiropractic is a warm and caring place where you learn so much more then you expect to! I’m feeling so much better!
