Sports injuries are a common occurrence that can affect children, teens, and adults alike. Sports injuries can be serious, which is why it's important to get help as soon as possible to treat them.
After initial treatment of a sports injury, you'll need to engage in sports rehabilitation in order to restore the muscle's strength and mobility. At Spine Pain Center in Surfside Beach, SC, we help provide chiropractic care and sports rehabilitation to our community. We want to help your life free from pain and get back out on the field again.
What Is Sports Rehabilitation?
After you suffer from a sports injury, it can be difficult to recover without professional help. Some of the most common injuries that you can suffer from during sports include:
- Muscle tears
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains
- Bone fractures
- Spinal misalignments
- Herniated discs
- Shin splints
- Achilles heel injuries
All these injuries change the physical make-up of the body, such as muscle tears. Although your body can heal naturally, sports rehabilitation can help speed up the process of recovery. Sports rehab can also help restore your muscle's full strength and help prevent the chances of re-injury occurring.
How Does Sports Rehabilitation Work?
During sports rehabilitation, a chiropractor on our team will offer various chiropractic care techniques to help encourage healing, help boost blood flow and circulation, and help you regain strength and mobility in injured areas of the body.
Through chiropractic treatments, you may start to heal in a matter of weeks. These chiropractic treatments may include:
- Muscle stretches to improve mobility, range, and flexibility of injured muscles
- Manual adjustments to help re-align the spine
A chiropractor can determine which sports rehabilitation treatment is right for you. They will do so by first conducting a full physical exam to determine the extent of your injuries. A chiropractor on our team might also ask questions regarding your injury, such as pain associated with your injury, what makes the pain better or worse, and how long you've been living with your injury.
