How Chiropractic Can Address Sports Injuries

Football player patient holding signA runner with shin splints or plantar fasciitis. A baseball or softball pitcher with overuse injuries to the shoulder. A golfer’s elbow pain. At some point in every athlete’s career, injuries are inevitable.

Here are some primary reasons athletes sustain sports injuries: repetitive motions, forceful impact, overtraining and not warming up properly. Injuries can happen to all ages and levels, from school-aged soccer players to collegiate runners to die-hard CrossFitters and pro athletes.

While many people reach for OTC medication to address their injuries, we believe chiropractic care should be considered the first choice. That’s because sports chiropractic is natural, safe and incredibly effective!

Here are some of the most common types of sports-related injuries:

  • Hip pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow

How Does Chiropractic Help?

Chiropractors can help prevent injuries of the back, neck, shoulder, knee, and ankle, but our doctors can also treat these injuries. They’re highly skilled in manual adjustment of the spine, which helps the body perform better and become less susceptible to injury.

With most chiropractic techniques, the goal is to restore or enhance joint function, while resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain. Chiropractic care is often used to address neck or back injuries, but also to alleviate pain throughout the joints and muscles in the body.

Other Therapies

In addition to providing adjustments, our chiropractors offer athletic taping, manual therapy and rehabilitation. You’ll be given specific rehabilitation exercises as part of your normal routines, giving you better performance and prevention.
