Sports Injury Treatment from Health + Healing Chiropractic
At Health + Healing Chiropractic, we know that unfortunate sports injuries can occur to the active athlete or the weekend warrior. However, the good news is our chiropractor can help.
Sports Injury Treatment from an experienced chiropractor
At our practice, we encourage everyone to stay physically active because we know this is important to everyone’s long-term health. At the same time, we know that injuries can happen especially while playing sports. These are some common injuries that we see in our practice:
- Shoulder Injuries: shoulders naturally have great flexibility, however this exposes them to a greater chance for injury. Some of the most common shoulder injuries seen by a chiropractor include: rotator cuff injuries, overuse injuries (bursitis or tendonitis), strains or sprains. Shoulder issues are common in sports like baseball, swimming, and tennis.
- Knee Injuries: Common knee injuries that we see include sprains, muscle strains, knee dislocations, and direct contusions to the knee itself. Some of the most common sports that lead to knee injuries include football, soccer, and basketball.
- Back Injuries: These are the most common reasons someone sees a chiropractor. A few examples of back injuries include disc herniations, pinched nerves, and paraspinal muscle strains or sprains. Many of these injuries are due to overuse, inappropriate compensation or incorrect muscle and joint movement.
These are just a few of the common sports injuries that we see and we take a unique approach to their treatment.
Sports Injury Rehab from a Chiropractor
As a chiropractor, we have two goals. The first is to identify the root cause of the injury and the second is to strengthen and restore balance back to the body to help prevent future injuries. Some of the most common techniques that we will use are adjustments, stretches and structural correction & strengthening exercises. We seek to come up with a well-rounded care plan that will target flexibility, strength, and range of motion. We are here to help you return to the field of play as quickly and as safely as possible.
