Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries

Are you an athlete or do you play recreational sports? 

If so, injuries are common when you’re participating in physical activity. From collisions to falls to overexertion, playing sports or exercising can lead to strains and pain.  

Treatment for injuries

The treatments we use depend on your condition.   Health care is not “one size fits all,” and your care will always be tailored to your needs and goals.  We always do a detailed exam to determine the best treatments for your injury, to get you back to your activities as quickly and safely as possible.  

Typical care in our office often involves a combination treatments, including

  • Chiropractic adjustments to your spine and body to improve joint motion and alignment 
  • Corrective exercises to regain strength, flexibility, and coordination
  • Nutritional support to improve inflammation and healing
  • Frequency Specific Microcurrent to manage pain, inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.  

We can help with both recent and chronic injuries, with an ultimate goal of helping you minimize your risks of injury in the future by improving your coordination, strength, and mobility! 

Injuries we treat

A sports injury is classified as any injury occurring as a result of physical activity.  Sports injuries often cause strain and injury to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and joints.  This often causes bruising, swelling, pain, and limited mobility in the acute phase.  Chronic injuries show up as things like muscle weakness or spasm, tendonitis, or bursitis.  

The most common types of sports injuries that we treat include

  • Strains and sprains involving damage to the muscles and ligaments of the spine, knees, ankles, or shoulders
  • Tendinitis from acute or chronic overuse injury to the knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, or wrists
  • Concussions and whiplash due to injuries to the head and neck
  • Bruises involving injury to the muscles and soft tissues

Medications are often recommended by well-meaning medical practitioners, but come with side effects.  Masking pain and “pushing through the pain” often leads to delayed healing or additional injuries.  A better option is the PEACE & LOVE approach to promote and support your healing process. 

Early proper evaluation, treatment, and safe return to activity as soon as possible is essential for healing well!
