If you have been sidelined by a sports injury, our West Hollywood sports injury treatment can get you back in the game quickly and safely. Dr. Hogan works with patients of all ages and athletic abilities, including professional athletes. Our sports injury rehabilitation services include Kinesio (TM) taping, a state-of-the-art treatment different from other athletic taping. Traditionally, athletic taping is done with a non-elastic tape that is wrapped around the joints to stabilize them and restrict motion. Kinesio tape is 140% the elasticity of human skin. By skillfully applying the tape to specific structures with a particular amount of stretch on the tape different effects can be achieved. Some of these effects include: muscle inhibition, muscle facilitation, increased circulation, increased lymphatic drainage (to reduce swelling), pain relief, functional correction, and increased range of motion. Dr. Hogan uses Kinesio (TM) taping to reduce swelling and bruising immediately following an injury and to improve proprioception in some joints, reducing the risk for future injuries, like an ankle sprain.
Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that applies pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and reduce dysfunction in other points of the body. Active Trigger points cause muscular pain; these “knots” can also refer pain to other parts of the body and restrict mobility. Trigger point therapy is an effective pain management technique for patients with chronic pain conditions and recurring soreness/stiffness in the body. Dr. Hogan may also integrate this treatment with massage therapy and corrective exercises to support the body’s healing process after an injury.
Dr. Hogan and the Active Body Chiro-Care team provide comprehensive pain relief, sports injury rehabilitation and wellness care at four different locations in the Los Angeles and South Bay community: West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and South Bay.
