Recover from Sports Injuries with Chiropractic Care, Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Cupping, Acupressure, Massage Therapy and More!
Athletes understand the demands of participating in a sport. Putting your body through these activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a chiropractor can help athletes heal faster after suffering a sports injury and can prevent such future injuries.
Sports Injuries Cause Pain and Limit Performance
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways depending on what activity you are doing or what sport you are playing. It is important to take precautionary measures, but sometimes injuries can happen to the most physically active and experienced people. These conditions are often a result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Children and teens tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if an injury is left untreated, this can lead to chronic pain in other areas that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury such as the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and a decrease in athletic abilities.
