Understanding the Needs of Athletes

An Expert in Extremity Adjusting

Dr. Karen’s years of experience in treating athletes from all sports and levels of participation has allowed her a unique insight into treatment. She’s worked with the Indianapolis Colts and been the Team Chiropractor for the Indianapolis Ice and the Indianapolis Twisters. When she worked with the professional indoor soccer team, she observed that knee or ankle problems could stem from the low back and vice versa. As a collegiate diver, Dr. Karen’s neck spasms were a result of a misaligned shoulder and a pinched nerve in her neck.

By examining all joints in the body, Dr. Karen can determine the source of your problem. Spinal alignment can only be stabilized if your extremities are mobile, healthy and in the proper position. She is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP) with expertise in evaluating, diagnosing and treating problems related to extremities. These issues include carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, bursitis of the hip, knee pain, and tendonitis. Many such conditions are a result of overuse, injury, improper training, old injuries that didn’t heal correctively or repetitive stress.

Assisting Youth Athletes

Dr. Karen has three young athletes in her family and has experience in helping kids with sports injuries get well and improve their performance. It is of vital importance that young athletes have proper structural alignment as they go through growth spurts. Sports Chiropractic at Indy Sports & Family Chiropractic can not only prevent injury but help your child or teen grow up strong and structurally sound, with an understanding of how to manage their health naturally.

Additionally, it must be considered that many opioid (painkiller) addictions happen when kids are injured or have surgery at a young age. We are committed to empowering children to learn to care for their bodies naturally.
