Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

By Sara Butler

Sports at any level can be demanding on your body. It’s common to suffer from strains or sprains when you participate in sports due to the nature of the pressure it places on your body -- which is why your chiropractor is a great person to have on your team. Chiropractors help athletes in every sport at every level, from the weekend warriors all the way up to the big leaguers, treating and helping prevent injuries that can occur. Here’s why you need a chiropractor to help you stay healthy and active.

Prevention

Athletes can help avoid injuries during sports by making sure to warm-up properly. When you combine proper technique, including warm-up and cool down, with chiropractic care, then you are taking steps to help prevent injury. When your chiropractor performs manual adjustments to help relieve any joint dysfunction or restriction, they are helping your body to heal as it should and function at its very best. In fact, chiropractic care has been shown to help athletes recover faster and perform better during their chosen sporting activity.

How Chiropractic Helps

Active people and athletes put themselves at a higher risk of injury. This is due to muscle tension that builds up as they go through motions, many repetitive. When your chiropractor performs an adjustment, they are helping to remove this tension, which leads to better function, better range of motion, and injury prevention. One of the goals your chiropractor has for you is to restore and maintain natural motion in your body, keeping it relaxed so it can heal itself naturally. Issues that plague many athletes, such as inflammation, can be reduced with the help of a chiropractor.

You should be aware that the adjustment is the only trick in your chiropractor’s bag! They also offer other treatments that can help with your athletic performance. Your chiropractor can give you nutritional advice, tips on proper technique and posture, and advice on how to properly utilize heat and ice therapy to help keep your body healthy and free from injury. They can even help you with a stretching regimen!

The only thing you have to do is actually get in to see your chiropractor regularly and let them know what’s going on. Be clear about any symptoms you are experiencing so that your chiropractor can do an assessment and proceed with a treatment plan to address these issues!
