Sports Injuries and How a Chiropractor Can Help

Find out how a chiropractor can promote faster and more effective healing after a sports injury.

When you face a sports-related injury we know just how important it is to feel better fast so you can get back to doing what you love; however, it’s also just as important that you give your body the proper treatment and care it needs to heal fully. That’s where a chiropractor comes in. A chiropractor is a medical doctor that provides therapeutic, non-invasive, and drug-free measures to support your body’s natural healing processes.

Treat Spinal Misalignments

Everything from compressed nerves to a limited range of motion can be caused by a misaligned spine. Spinal misalignments may also increase your risk for injury, especially if you play sports. It’s important that you don’t ignore misalignments, as they can lead to further problems down the road. Even if you aren’t experiencing signs of misalignment, turning to a chiropractor for regular adjustment sessions can prevent misalignments and even sports injuries from occurring.

Improve Range of Motion

When the spine is out of alignment this also means that other parts of the body may be out of whack. If you find yourself not having the same range of motion in your hips, arms, shoulders or legs it’s important that you turn to a chiropractor to find out what’s going on. Through hands-on manipulation techniques and specialized exercises, a chiropractor can help improve flexibility and range of motion.

Get Drug-Free Relief

While you may be turning to over-the-counter pain relievers to ease your pain and discomfort, keep in mind that medications only mask your symptoms; they don’t treat the cause. Fortunately, spinal manipulation can address misalignments and stimulate the body’s natural processes to treat common sports injuries including tendonitis and bursitis. If you are looking for non-invasive and alternative treatment options to alleviate your sports injuries, chiropractor care can help

Prevent Injuries

We touched on it a little easier but it bears repeating—a chiropractor can provide you with special exercises and hands-on therapy that can improve how the musculoskeletal system functions as a whole. As a result, athletes and those who are physically active will be primed and ready for action and may even see an improvement in their athletic performance.

Don’t ignore your body when it’s in pain. If you are dealing with a sports injury, regular chiropractic care could help you. To take the next steps, call our chiropractor today to schedule your first appointment.
