Can Chiropractors Help With Sports Injuries?
Due to the numerous health benefits, it’s easy to see why many people like to participate in sports. However, when playing sports, there are always some risks involved, including sustaining an injury such as having a painful tear, strain, or sprain. Regardless of which types of sports you are active in, a chiropractor can help holistically address your sports injuries for the best results possible. Also, chiropractors can help prevent some sports injuries in the future.

Addressing Underlying Issues That Can Contribute to an Injury

Although millions of injuries are caused by sports in the U.S. each year, many people don’t know that a high percentage of them could be prevented. Of course, we are not talking here about those injuries that occur because of a sudden, high-impact force- but others that are related to some preventable measures. To give you an idea of which underlying issues can result in an injury if not addressed by the right care, here is a list:

  • The dominance of one a specific muscle group (or groups)
  • Weakness of core muscles
  • Joint and muscle stiffness
  • Misalignment (most often spine misalignment)
  • Poor biomechanics
  • Poor health

Chiropractic care is one of the best options to address these root issues. This is because chiropractors can quickly notice any of these health problems, particularly regarding your spine alignment and movement patterns, that can increase your risks of sustaining an injury. These neuromusculoskeletal experts can address them effectively with various holistic treatment options such as adjustments, exercise programs and posture training. Thus, as an athlete, you can keep performing well in your sport, or even improve your athletic performance!

Treating a Current Sports Injury

If you are currently suffering from the consequences of a sports injury, you may need some help right now. Luckily, chiropractic care can also help you with managing a current sports injury. When seeing a chiropractor, you can get immediate pain relief due to the non-invasive treatment options chiropractors use to address an injury. Once ready, your chiropractor’s focus will shift to promoting better healing potential for you so you can return to your game of choice as early as possible.

To boost a patient’s healing capabilities and provide sustainable recovery, chiropractors often do adjustments to the spine. This is because having proper spine alignment can promote better nerve integrity and flow.

Stay In the Game or Return to Your Sport as Soon as Possible

If you would like to reduce the risks of getting injured while participating in your game, preventative care can be the solution for you. Also, if you have suffered an injury, getting the right care can promote faster recovery. That way you can return to your sport as soon as possible.
