Suffering from a sports injury can be painful and difficult due to the inability of performing physical activities to your full capacity.
Incorporating fitness into your life is a great way to keep up with your health. Whether you’re an avid runner, heavy lifter, or anything between, exercise can aid in stress relief and help strengthen your muscles, joints, bones, and heart. Unfortunately, participating in these sorts of activities can sometimes lead to a variety of soft tissue injuries such as the knee, shoulder injuries, hamstring strain, sciatica, shin splints, hip flexor strain, and so on. As experts in the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors have become a highly effective tool when it comes to helping and even preventing sport-related injuries.
Common Sports Injuries:
- Sprains and strains
- Knee injuries
- Swollen muscles
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Shin Splints
No matter the age, a person who uses forceful impact, repetitive motions, and/or overexerts themselves, may lead to a sports injury. Sports place an enormous amount of pressure on our bodies, allowing it to be easier to sprain an ankle or wrist, pull a muscle, or strain it. When sports injuries occur, it’s vital to seek out care as soon as possible. According to a study published by BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, it was found that those who were treated with sports chiropractic intervention experienced a significant reduction in strain injuries, specifically in lower-limb muscles.
Chiropractic Care For Sports Injuries
Our chiropractic care at NW Injury and Rehab Center can help reduce your chances of undergoing surgery and/or furthering your injury. We utilize a combination of treatment options along with our chiropractic care to ensure the best recovery possible.
To ensure that we can help with your injury and that you will receive the best treatment plan for you, we require our new patients to have a consultation by one of our physicians to determine the best course of action. After that, our physician may suggest a physical examination. The exam may include a simple assessment, digital x-ray, or even an MRI. Through this process, we are able to ensure our patients will receive a treatment program that will get them back in the field, gym, or playground as soon as possible.
