A sports injury can range anywhere from a minor discomfort to a major dysfunction of the body. Exercise and physical activity are common causes of these sports injuries where constant movement creates a higher risk of falling, slipping, twisting, or colliding with a forceful impact. These risks can cause a great deal of trauma to the body. Injury rates are especially high in contact sports like football, rugby, ice hockey, bicycling, and skateboarding.
Some commonly occurring sports injuries that we treat are listed below:
Sprains and strains - are especially prevalent in these areas, where muscle fibers or joint tissue is stretched beyond its capacity. Swelling, bruising, and redness are telltale signs of a sprain or strains.
Whiplash -This injury develops when the neck is jolted in sudden motions and is another common injury in sporting activities.
Overuse injuries - develop in athletes from repetitive wear-and-tear, causing a certain body part to experience deterioration from repetitive movement.
How Our Chiropractor Treats Injuries
Injury rehabilitation is instrumental in keeping a player at the top of his or her game. Chiropractic adjustments help realign the skeletal system and facilitate optimal nervous system function. Chiropractic care can rehabilitate an athlete's injuries through specialized treatments. In chiropractic care, stretching exercises can be applied to naturally correct injury through specialized movement.
This form of care offers a safe, non-invasive, and non-surgical alternative to mainstream medicine. Chiropractic care focuses on treating musculoskeletal disorders, treating injuries that affect the spine, the neck, the shoulders, or the legs. A chiropractor can also provide lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling specifically designed for an athlete. With the right lifestyle guidance, you can learn how to prevent future injuries.
