Why do sports injuries occur?

There are many causes of sports injury. One of the most common causes is overexertion, where you push your body beyond its limit. Other causes include: failure to warm up, improper training techniques, inadequate rest time and knocks from other players and objects.

What are common sports injuries?

You can incur numerous sports injuries, whether participating in indoor or outdoor activities. Remember, sports injuries can affect anyone regardless of age or athletic ability. Contact sports can result in head injuries, torn muscles, and back, shoulder, and neck pain. Activities such as tennis or golf may cause carpal tunnel syndrome or elbow pain due to repeated strain. If you participate in running sports, you may suffer from shin splints, runner’s knee, hip pain and plantar fasciitis.

How does a chiropractor treat sports injuries?

Many people will try and play through the pain, this leads to worsening injuries and can prolong healing time. Chiropractors treat the root cause of the pain using natural treatments. This way, we offer lasting solutions and prevent the recurrence of the pain. Here are the treatments chiropractors use to treat sports injuries:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: We manipulate key joints to bring balance to your body. Spinal manipulations remove “restrictions” on your back to kick start your body’s natural healing mechanism.
  • Laser therapy: We use laser technology to trigger your body’s self-healing mechanism by reducing pain and inflammation.
  • Stretching/strengthening exercises: We recommend simple exercises and stretches for patients to perform in office and at home to relieve pain, improve mobility, and prevent future injury.
