How Chiropractic Care Helps Sports Injuries
The main reasons people who participate in sports activities sustain injuries are repetitive motions, poor warm-ups, and forceful impacts. Our chiropractor helps athletes find relief from pain caused by these injuries and heal faster. Additionally, we can help prevent future injuries.
When you see our chiropractor with a sports injury, we will ask you questions about the injury and your health history. Then we will perform structural exams and use the results of the exams to create a suitable treatment plan.
We use safe and non-invasive techniques such as spinal mobilization, spinal manipulation, extremity adjustments, massage therapy, and exercises. We may also use ice and heat therapy to help you find pain relief. Make sure you tell the chiropractor all of your symptoms for better results.
We can also help you avoid future injuries by examining your spine and muscles to alleviate tension and check for any imbalances. Chiropractic care is an excellent treatment option for sports injuries since it doesn’t involve medication and is non-invasive. It focuses on addressing the root of the injury and not just providing relief for the pain.
