If you’re an athlete, you’re no stranger to the rigors that your body goes through during training and competing.
Putting your body through these physical demands can lead to strains, sprains, tears, and other painful injuries and ailments. The good news? Seeing a chiropractor can help to both prevent and treat injuries caused by sports!
Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation, and other treatments, to help your musculoskeletal system. The manipulation helps to restore mobility in joints, relieve aches and pains, realign your spine, and more. When your body is aligned, it functions better and becomes less susceptible to injury.
The main reasons that athletes get injured include repetitive motions, overtraining, forceful impact, and failure to warm up properly. Working with a chiropractor promotes quicker recovery and can help your body to prevent injury.
So, what types of sports injuries can our chiropractors treat? All sorts! Chiropractors can help treat:
- Back and neck pain
- Strains and sprains
- Pinched nerves
- Herniated discs
- Shin splints
- Golfer’s or Tennis Elbow
- Shoulder, arm, and hand pain
- Groin injuries
- Leg and knee injuries
- And more!
Our chiropractors will tailor their treatment specific to your injury – there isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment for everybody. Your chiropractor can use both hands-on spinal manipulation, as well as additional therapies like ultrasound, cold and heat therapy, electric muscle stimulation, traction, cold laser, and other methods to help alleviate any pain or discomfort.
