Dr. Desiree Knows How To Treat Sports Injuries

We Recognize, You Recover Faster

Medical doctors treat injuries in isolation and often recommend extended rest periods as treatment, but as an athlete you know you don’t want to miss anymore time than you have to. Dr. Desiree at Desired Health in Anoka recognizes that quick recovery requires proper muscular balance of the spine and consideration of the whole body including: spine, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves. If you’ve been to a doctor – or to many doctors and many specialists – and your injury isn’t healing it is time you tried chiropractic.

Chiropractic Care Can Help You Prevent Injury

A Whole Body Approach To Prevention And Wellness

At Desired Health Chiropractic in Anoka we treat holistically with a focus on prevention. To function properly your body needs to be treated as a whole. A golfer swings his club with their whole body. A runner runs with her whole body. If you injure your wrist golfing or your knee running it wasn’t just because of a “bad” wrist or “bad” knees if your body mechanics were corrected and body put into alignment early enough the injury might not have happened! So don’t wait until you are on the sidelines to get chiropractic care – with routine adjustments that improve flexibility and align your spine the musculoskeletal system can be kept in balance to prevent injury. Schedule an appointment and Dr. Desiree will listen to your goals and create a treatment plan catered to your needs. Dr. Desiree can also provide exercises you can do at home to keep sports injuries at bay.

“I appreciate her knowledge about sports – specifically running. She is also very encouraging to keep my focus on my goal and this “minor” injury does not need to be a set back. Thanks!”

– Chris Chell

Improve Performance With Regular Visits To Your Chiropractor

Stay Ahead Of The Competition

Visiting Desired Health Chiropractic won’t just help you prevent injuries – you can also expect improved athletic performance. Both high-impact and low-impact athletes can benefit from routine spinal adjustments with increased performance, flexibility and a lower risk for injury.  Looking to improve your golf swing? Chiropractic care improves golf players’ full-swing performance compared to muscle stretching alone.

Maladjustment affects all athletes and performers. For example, misalignment, including leg length imbalance, cervical syndrome, and pelvic torsion, has been found to play an integral role in the muscle balance of dancers. Thats why visiting Desired Health Chiropractic, especially prior to an athletic or physical performance, is so important. Chiropractic intervention can improve athletic ability including: increased reaction times, performances, and even endurance so you can stay ahead of the competition.
