What Is a Sports Injury?
A sports injury is any type of injury that you suffer while playing a sport or exercising. Sports injuries are common, with children and adults visiting hospitals every single year to get them treated. However, even mild sports injuries can pose a significant issue if left untreated. Some of the most common sports injuries may include:
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Broken bones
- Dislocated bones
- Shin splints
- Muscle tears
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Achilles heel injuries
All these injuries can make it difficult for you to get the exercise that you need to stay healthy and can cause a significant amount of pain.
Getting Help from Our Chiropractor
It's never a good idea to leave a sports injury untreated. Doing so can further increase your risk of re-injury, making it incredibly difficult for your body to fully recover. In addition, a sports injury might also cause pain weeks or even months after the initial injury. Our trained chiropractor will be able to determine the extent of your injury, as well as provide the best chiropractic care and treatment plan for you.
Chiropractic care that can help you recover from and fully heal from your sports injury may include:
- Muscle stretches to reduce muscle spasms and tension
- Muscle exercises to strengthen the muscle and help you regain mobility and flexibility
- Trigger point therapy to target specific injured soft tissues
- Spinal adjustments to re-align the spine and improve spine health after a sports injury
