As a trained and certified chiropractic sports physician (see the Healthworld Difference section: Dr. Young’s credentials) using a wide variety of Physical Therapy equipment and tools, is really just: ‘part of the job.’

Physical Therapy Equipment

First and foremost, in dealing with hard, acute, screaming at the top of your lungs pain, clinically, is:


Yes ice, not heat!

Too, many people and even seasoned doctors continue to make this simple and yet, critical mistake! They recommend heat to ‘soothe and relax’ the muscles, yet it will invariably exacerbate the inflammatory condition and make the sharp pains much worse indeed! The muscles will also rebound into a guarding type of spasm that is in and of itself, can be extraordinarily painful!

So, yes, ice used, with a small towel or tissue on the skin first, of course is the initial physical therapy of choice.

Then use a type of ace bandage, where properly needed (never over the throat!) in order to exert moderate compression pressure of the ice into the painful damaged tissues (Please consult your Doctor).

Remember the sports medicine acronym = P.R.I.C.E.S

P= Protect

R= Rest

I= Ice

C= Compress

E= Elevate

S= Support

This is a simple but methodically detailed way to use the ice therapy in usually an extraordinarily beneficial manner.

SPORTS – Lots of Fun
    Lots of Frustration

    Lots of Exercise

    Lots of Pains

Which one(s) of the above describe your relationship with sports?

If it is typically like many professional, semi-pro, weekend warrior, college and High-school athletes, it is a combination of them: All!

          It just depends on what part of the training cycle you are in!

          Dr. Young has personally enjoyed, played and trained in many sports at a variety of levels of expertise.

The athlete needs to be treated in a way that will meet his particular needs; whether professional, semi-pro, collegiate, high school or even weekend warrior- protocols are individualized and Dr. Young takes great and meticulous care in optimizing these results.
