Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

By Paul Rothbart

Millions of people throughout the U.S. enjoy playing sports. Most of them are not professionals, but they still compete hard and strive to win. There are many benefits to playing sports. The spirit of competition can be helpful in other aspects of life. It's obvious that athletes get plenty of exercise. That said, injuries are not uncommon in any kind of sport. If you play sports, there's always a chance of getting hurt. Should that happen, you want to heal quickly. Chiropractic care can help with your recovery from a sports injury.

Direct Treatment of Injuries

Many sports involve throwing a ball or swinging a bat, stick, or club. These motions can put a strain on the elbows, shoulders, and other joints. Injuries of this type are very common in many sports. Chiropractors are trained to treat these kinds of injuries with non-invasive adjustments that can restore a full range of motion and help joints heal. 

Back injuries are common in golf and contact sports are rife with neck as well as back injuries. A chiropractor can perform an examination and find the subluxations or other problems at the heart of the injury. An adjustment can fix the problem and allow the injury to heal more quickly. 

Avoid Surgery and Medication

Although surgery and medication have their place, and there are injuries that do require one or both, it's generally a good idea to avoid them when possible. Chiropractic care is natural and not invasive. Pain is relieved by adjusting the body to get the spine and joints in their natural state. A chiropractor treats the body as a whole, getting each part to work together the way they are intended to. There is no risk of addiction or side effects as your injury heals.

You May Heal Faster

Chiropractic care can work in conjunction with other types of treatment and help to speed up the healing process. It can reduce inflammation and stiffness in the back and joints, allowing the body to focus on healing the injury. Many people sleep better when receiving chiropractic treatments. Sleep is something you need plenty of when recovering from a sports injury. Seeing a chiropractor as part of your treatment can also help prevent reinjuring yourself and relapses. Many professional athletes swear by chiropractic care to keep them in the game.

Playing sports is a great pastime. Injuries are almost inevitable. If you are an athlete, consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. You may find that regular chiropractic care helps you recover from injuries, as well as help prevent them.
