What is The Advantage of Chiropractic Care for Athletes?
Recently more and more people are becoming health aware and are talking with health professionals across the country. This is a good trend, but with any physical activity from sports to exercise, improper movement can cause injuries. In sports, a sports injury can be due to over training, improper training and poor form, to name a few.
Types of Sports Injuries
A sport injury can usually be divided into two categories, Acute and Chronic.
- Acute Injuries: Acute injuries are injuries which occur suddenly in one specific area like the muscle, bone or joint through specific impact or traumatic event.
- Chronic Injuries: Chronic injuries are the injuries continue to cause pain or discomfort for a long time after the initial injury.
The most common injuries occur in the knee and ankles. Some sports injuries can be:
- Sprains and strains of muscles and joints
- Swollen muscles
- Achilles tendon disorder
- Tears of tendons and ligaments
- Pain along the shin bone
- Rotator Cuff problems
- Fractured bone
- Dislocated joints
- Back and neck disorder
- Spinal misalignments
Chiropractic Adjustment helps Sports Injuries
Just like following the commands yelled across the field from your coach, the brain and body communication highway (ie. your spine) must be in constant communication with your body. Lose or interrupt that connection and a lot of problems can happen.
Your chiropractor helps you keep your spine in proper alignment and that communication flowing.
Chiropractic adjustments provide instant relief with no drugs and no side-effects.
Whether you have Ankle Sprains, Muscle Strain, Tendonitis, Bursitis of the shoulder or joint problems with the elbow, wrist, hand, hip or knee, they can be helped with chiropractic care.
