Chiropractic Treatment For Sports Injury
Have you been sidelined by an injury? Is your recovery slowed down by pain? Has your performance declined because of lingering stiffness at the injury site? At Chaney Chiropractic Clinic in Beverly Hills and Spring Hill, we can help.
Who Can Develop a Sports Injury?
It isn’t just trained, elite athletes who develop sports-related injuries. These types of injuries can strike anyone, from newcomers to retired pros who play casually but regularly every weekend. Sports injuries can also impact players of any sport, from table tennis to rock climbing to football.
Many sports require you to push your body to its limits, often repeatedly. Some injuries, like broken bones and dislocated joints, come on fast and create immediate pain and damage. Others start small, with just a slight twinge of discomfort. However, repetition turns that into stubborn and uncomfortable overuse injuries.
Some common sports injuries that we see every day include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Inflammation like plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Herniated discs
- Nerve pain
- Back and shoulder pain
- Reduced mobility
Chiropractors: Not Just For Bones
Chiropractors are best known for their holistic approach. They are trained to evaluate and align your entire body, not just the skeleton.
Our chiropractor will spend some time on your injured area, but then give attention to other areas of the body like the soft tissues. A sports injury, especially one that is lingering or severe, throws your whole body out of alignment. For instance, if you have a neck injury, then your shoulders may carry tension to help protect the neck. Your back may hunch to stabilize the shoulders, your pelvis may be out of alignment, as it struggles to counterbalance the back, and so on. Every part of your body is connected, so a sports injury in one area affects the rest of the body.
Alignments Improve Your Sports Injury
Chiropractic alignments offer all-natural pain relief and can help your body heal. In some cases, these treatments are all you’ll need to recover from a sports injury. In other cases, they can complement treatments like sports massage or laser therapy. Finally, sessions with a trained chiropractor can accelerate your recovery process. How? Reducing pain and tension will help you stick to your rehabilitation schedule and enable you to give 100% during the sessions.
