Common Sports Injuries
Depending on the sport you play, there are many potential injuries you could endure. Typically, sports injuries fall into one of two categories: chronic or acute. Chronic injuries are those that tend to happen gradually over time; they are most commonly related to over-use, such as may be the case in injuries like Tennis Elbow or Runner's Knee. Acute injuries, on the other hand, happen instantly and are usually the result of trauma, impact, or over-extension. Some common examples of these injuries include:
- strains and sprains
- pulled muscles
- torn ligaments and tendons
Here in our office, we're able to treat both acute and chronic sports injuries using chiropractic, physiotherapy, and even massage therapy treatments. Whether you're suffering from pain in your elbow, knee, back, neck, or just about anywhere else on the body, we're here to help you find pain relief.
How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help
So, why opt for chiropractic treatment from your sports injuries? For starters, Chiropractic care is non-invasive and drug-free, so you don't have to worry about the potential risks and side effects that often come along with other forms of treatment. Furthermore, chiropractic treatment focuses on healing your pain at its source, rather than masking it with painkillers or other drugs.
We offer a wide range of treatment options for sports injuries in our office. We'll always begin with a comprehensive evaluation and exam to determine the source of your pain and develop a customized treatment plan to suit your needs and lifestyle. Ultimately, our goal is to get you back in the game and to improve your health and wellness in the process.
One of the most common treatment recommendations we make to athletes is that of spinal adjustment, which focuses on correcting alignment problems along the spinal column. This, in turn, may help bring your body into better overall balance, which could help you find relief from your symptoms. Some other treatments we offer include:
- spinal decompression therapy
- corrective exercises
- neck and cervical adjustments
- massage therapy
