Common Sports Injuries

Athletes tend to sustain a number of common injuries. Ankle sprains, muscle pulls, ACL tears, back strains, runner’s knee tennis elbow and shoulder injuries can occur at any time. These injuries can take athletes out of the game and away from their normal training regime. Chiropractic care can help to relieve pain and improve impaired function from sports injuries.

Chiropractic Techniques Used for Sports Injuries

Every sports injury presents its own features. Similarly, each athlete may have specific concerns regarding their care to remedy the problem. Your Irving chiropractor will design an individualized plan, to ensure your injury is addressed appropriately for your needs. Analysis of the injury may indicate that misalignments in the spine require correction in order to provide normal function. Spinal decompression can assist in re-positioning damaged discs and relieving pressure on nerves. Your chiropractor may utilize heat or cold to relieve swelling or inflammation in the area. Corrective exercises may be administered to strengthen supporting muscles.

How Athletes Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care

Many athletes rely on chiropractic care to help them recover from small muscle injuries that can occur whenever they are engaged in their chosen sport. Chiropractic care can heal these minor injuries quickly, so you can get back to your training. When more serious injuries occur, chiropractic techniques can provide relief from pain and faster healing. Regular chiropractic care can also help athletes improve their performance by providing better alignment of the spine and musculoskeletal system.
