What Happens During a Sports Injury?
While some injuries are more likely than others in certain sports, some of the most common sports injuries include sprains and strains, fractured or broken bones, and overuse injuries. The severity of your injury can depend on several factors, including your age, how often you exercise, and your overall health.
Most sports injuries include inflammation as one of their components. Inflammation can make moving your body challenging during the healing process. Misalignments can also occur due to sports injuries, especially in the neck, shoulders, back, hips, knees, and ankles. Misalignments can make healing more challenging since your joints and muscles may overwork to compensate for the injury, causing more misalignments and pain. You can also suffer head trauma and neck injuries like whiplash from a collision during the heat of the game.
Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries
When you work with our sports injury chiropractor, you will receive a functional medicine approach to help you achieve optimal healing and prevent future injuries. Functional medicine practitioners work to consider the entire body rather than finding symptoms to treat. We will approach your sports injury treatment with a personalized care plan that considers all your bodily systems, leading to a healthier, stronger you while decreasing the likelihood of future injury.
We will discuss your health history and ask questions about your injury. Our chiropractor will examine your injury and talk about your pain level and other symptoms you are experiencing. We can then determine the root of your injury and customize a treatment plan to help you achieve pain relief and improved range of motion. We can use adjustments, cold laser therapy, and soft tissue therapy to alleviate muscle pain and inflammation while improving joint function. We can also implement corrective stretches and exercises to help strengthen your body and prevent future injury.
