At The Running Doctor, chiropractor Dr. Keith Jeffers specializes in sports medicine and sports injuries. With over 25 years of experience as a biomechanics expert, award-winning runner and sports injuries specialist, he has in-depth knowledge about sports injuries and effective chiropractic treatment. He has helped Olympic athletes, runners, tennis pros, marathoners, baseball players and amateur sports players get back in the game after sustaining an injury. His goal is to provide pain relief, restore normal function, enhance athletic performance and prevent sports-related injuries.
From lower back pain and neck pain to muscle strains and shin splits, he has successfully assisted patients recover from all types of sports injuries. At the Running Doctor, patients receive a multi-faceted treatment plan for optimal patient outcome. Depending on your condition, treatment may include spinal manipulations, spinal decompression therapy, laser therapy, massage therapy, micro-electric therapy, cryotherapy or nutritional counseling.
Once Dr. Keith Jeffers has an accurate diagnosis of your injury, he creates an individualized treatment plan targeted to the specific injury at his injury clinic. Each therapeutic treatment is designed to work synergistically for injury recovery. Both spinal adjustments and spinal decompression therapy are affective for back pain and neck pain resulting from herniated discs and muscle strains or sprains. During spinal adjustments, gentle pressure is applied to properly realign the spinal discs. During spinal decompression therapy, the spine is gently stretched using a computerized traction table. With this treatment, the space between the spinal discs is increased.
Low level laser therapy is effective for enhancing the healing of injured tissues. It utilizes energy that deeply penetrates the skin to increase cell regeneration, decrease inflammation and decrease pain. Massage therapy is the ideal complementary therapy for treatment of sports injuries. It increases circulation the oxygen and nutrients to the affected area to accelerate the healing process, reduces swelling and reduces muscle spasms. And with cryotherapy, both inflammation and pain are reduced.
