What do you do in the meantime? Waiting for healing is not fun. Follow-up visits may result in new medication prescriptions after you inform the doctor that side effects are unbearable.

There is a better and more effective way to heal from sports injuries and often, it’s possible to do so without dangerous medications. Dr. Lonstein has combined treatment modalities of chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and physical therapy for thousands of patients at Lonstein Chiropractic and Acupuncture.
“We can often heal you more quickly and effectively than the traditional approach,” he says. “While we are doing this, we want you to be active and take control of your health. We have found that those who are actively involved in their own health care have better results.”
Understanding how the body heals and how badly you want to get back to playing your sport, Dr. Lonstein can easily decide when your body has healed sufficiently so you can return to your sport.
