What Is a Sports Injury?
A sports injury is any type of injury that occurs while you're playing a team sport or exercising. There are a variety of sports injuries that can impact your health and cause acute or chronic pain. Some of the most common sports injuries include:
- Shin splints
- Rotator cuff tears
- Frozen shoulder
- Tennis elbow
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Overuse injuries
- Achilles heel injuries
- Torn ligaments
- Broken bones
- Dislocated bones
- Spinal misalignments
These conditions can make it difficult to play sports and lower your quality of life if not treated by a professional. As soon as you notice symptoms of a sports injury, contact our chiropractic clinic for help.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractors will conduct a full physical exam as well as imaging tests such as x-rays if necessary to determine whether or not your injuries are severe. After we diagnose the type and severity of your injury, we will be able to provide a personalized treatment plan.
Some of the best chiropractic treatment options for sports injuries are chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy for injured muscles, spinal decompression for herniated discs that can be aggravated after a sports injury, and various types of manual adjustments to realign the spine following a severe injury.
In addition, muscle exercises can help strengthen the muscle and improve mobility following an injury. This reduces the risk of reinjury and will allow you to get back on track to playing on the field again.
