Chiropractic care plays an important role in sports injury recovery and prevention. Whether you’re an amateur athlete or a professional in your field, you can benefit from professional chiropractic treatment. Our sports medicine at Vitality Chiropractic helps patients stay out on the field without experiencing any pain or discomfort. Here are a few frequently asked questions patients have about chiropractic sports medicine and how it can benefit them.
What are common sports injuries?
Sports pose the risk of all kinds of musculoskeletal injuries. Contact sports put you at risk of dislodged muscles and bones in your shoulders, neck, and spine. Sports that require a lot of running can result in injuries to your knees, ankles, hips, and feet. Common sports injuries include herniated discs, spinal misalignments, dislocated shoulders, runner’s knee, tennis or golf elbow, and torn ligaments.
What is a repetitive motion injury?
Repetitive motion injuries are the result of muscle overuse due to working the same body parts beyond their limits. Some examples are tendonitis from playing golf or tennis or plantar fasciitis due to stressing foot tissues from running.
What sports injuries can chiropractors treat?
Our Highlands Ranch chiropractor can treat neck and back pain, sprains and strains, spinal misalignments, tendonitis, runner’s knee, and other conditions caused by sporting activities. We use chiropractic techniques to relieve pain and inflammation, restore muscle strength and flexibility, and help your body heal naturally.
How can chiropractic care help with sports injuries?
Regular chiropractic visits can keep your musculoskeletal system properly aligned and your core strong, reducing your risk for potential injuries out on the field. If you suffer an injury, our holistic treatments can help relieve pain and promote quicker recovery. Adjustments will reposition misaligned bones and joints to reduce pain, inflammation, and sensitivity. These adjustments will also relieve muscle tension and improve blood flow to the injured area for a faster recovery. Corrective exercises strengthen your core to restore flexibility, mobility, and range of motion.
