San Jose Sports Medicine and Chiropractic Care

San Jose Sports Medicine and Chiropractic CareChiropractic sports medicine is a field of medicine that focuses on providing the chiropractor's skill and knowledge to the prevention, diagnosis, management and rehabilitation of injuries that are related to exercise, sports or other recreational therapy.

Immediate treatment is essential in treating overuse syndrome. Overuse syndrome can come as a result of injuring yourself. You do not have to be a professional athlete to benefit from the knowledge of our sports medicine practitioner. If you are suffering from back pain or other pain related to an injury, Dr. Forster can help.

Sports Medicine for Rehabilitation from Injuries and Pain

When an injury occurs, our chiropractor can make adjustments to the spine that help the vertebrae regain their normal motion, which allows the patient to return to their daily activities sooner. Combined with physiotherapy, rehabilitation and massage therapy, this noninvasive treatment can help patients avoid reliance on painkillers, which can be addictive.

Another form of chiropractic therapy that is used successfully in treating sports-related injuries is active release therapy. Active Release Techniques (ART) is a soft tissue management skill that aids the recovery of injured or over-used muscles, nerves and connective tissue. Dr. Forster is certified in active release therapy, and thereby allowed to provide it as a service to her patients.

Release Therapy treats sports related injuryAs important as it is to treat injuries, the role of the practitioner is to also educate the patient on how to avoid future injury. This might involve teaching the patient on how to stretch and warm up properly or how to utilize other exercises to prepare for activity. Also of use in the prevention of injury is massage therapy, which Dr. Forster can discuss with you. Prevention is key in avoidingback pain and future injuries.

At Insight Chiropractic in San Jose we believe in total body care from the feet up. This means that we are committed to providing the best and most current forms of therapy available, including massage therapy and rehabilitation techniques. Dr. Jennifer Forster is an athlete herself, served as an Active Release Techniques (ART) therapist for Ironmancompetitions. In addition, Dr. Forster has completed the coursework in Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioners studies and is now an established sports medicine provider in the San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell and Cupertino areas.

In addition, she served as a  sports chiropractor for UC Berkeley and a walking coach for San Jose Fit. As an athlete herself, she recognizes the unique challenges to sports medicine and can bring both perspectives, that of patient and chiropractor, to each consultation.

Chiropractors believe that if the spine is in good health then the rest of the body can be of good health and will be able to optimally perform. Through various therapies including massage therapy and physiotherapy, we will help you live a life of wellness.

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Dr. Jen helped me fully recover from a car accident when my primary care physician, long-term physical therapy, and therapeutic massage had no benefit at all. I've had really mixed experiences with chiropractors in the past (mostly unhelpful), but Dr. Jen knows techniques that were very effective and restored full range of motion to my neck without pain. I am beyond grateful and have referred one of my best friends to her; the friend is just as delighted as I am. In addition to being uniquely effective, Dr. Jen provides the perfect balance between nurturing human warmth and professional efficiency. I think she's amazing."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
