I would definitely recommend Dr. Shaddock to other athletes! I’ve come in, and I leave feeling confident and ready to go. He adjusts me, makes me feel better, and tells me what to do to stay in shape for the tournament. He’s always taken really good care of me.

Austin Sports Injury Treatment

Dr. Daniel Shaddock of Absolute Life Wellness Center is looked to as a leader in sports injury treatment in Austin, and also Nationally as he is often personally requested by professional sports teams for events and training sessions.

Dr. Shaddock has worked to treat numerous sports injuries for athletes at all levels of competition– from amateur sports players to professional athletes and Olympians!

Common Sports Injuries

Some of the most common sports injuries we treat at Absolute Life are:

  • Sprained ankles
  • Pulled muscles (groin, hamstring, neck, or back)
  • Knee injuries – from dull aches and stiffness to torn ACLs
  • Tennis elbow
  • Shoulder and arm pain

For all sports injuries, it’s best to seek treatment from a professional chiropractor. Continuing to train through injuries can result in overuse injuries, and restrict your muscle movement in the long run.

Austin Sports Chiropractor

Chiropractors can adjust various parts of the body to relieve tension from troubled areas. These chiropractic techniques can greatly speed the recovery process for highly active and athletic patients.

Diagnosing the various aches, sprains, pains, and stiffness that athletes encounter is critical to creating a recovery plan. That’s where the expertise of a sports chiropractor can help.

Absolute Life Wellness Center understands the athletic need to keep conditioned and trained. Our chiropractic philosophy takes that into account, so that you can get back to practice, and keep your body safe.

Sports Massage Therapists in Austin

One of the most effective treatment methods for sports injuries is sports massage. At Absolute Life Wellness Center, we believe in improving the health of the entire body, instead of only managing specific symptoms.

That’s why we employ sports massage into our treatment plans. Dr. Shaddock and his team of Austin massage therapists are specialized to care for your injuries and get you back to training and competing.

What is a Sports Massage?

Sports massage is very similar to traditional massages, often employing the same techniques and methods. What makes sports massage different is the focus on an athlete’s unique needs. Sports massage therapists specialize in:

  • Increasing circulation and blood flow to affected muscles
  • Helping to clear lactic acid from muscle groups
  • Restoring flexibility to joints
  • Accelerating full-body recovery
