Chiropractic Care for Weekend Warriors

By Sara Butler

As your life gets busier, it can become more difficult to squeeze in some good exercise. That's why many people are very active on the weekends. The only problem with the strategy to go all out on the weekends when you have time for that game of squash is that going so long between vigorous exercise sessions can make you more susceptible to injuries. Here's how the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help you avoid injury and treat your injuries if they do occur.

Sports Injuries: They Happen

The goal of working out on the weekend is to help you stay in shape and enhance your health and wellness. But when you don't work out regularly, your desire for better health can take a backseat to the demands of your body. If you have any joint restrictions or dysfunctions present, then muscle imbalances can set you up for an injury. Also using gym equipment improperly or even just the natural process of getting older can cause issues that make you more susceptible to injury.

Many sports injuries are caused by some type of traumatic force. Many patients need help after they experience torn ligaments in certain joints, such as the knee or ankle. Spinal injuries are also a big issue, with chiropractors seeing a variety of injuries to the spine that are the result of weak core movement. Any of these injuries can sideline your weekend workouts and make life more difficult during the week too.

What the Chiropractor Can Do

Chiropractors have been trained to properly assess, treat, and diagnose sports-related injuries. They can give you a comprehensive exam to help determine the cause of your pain as well as any other issues that may have set you up for the injury. These underlying issues have probably been around for a while, so they must be treated if you want to fully recover.

They can provide you with a variety of therapies to help treat your injuries such as hands-on chiropractic adjustments, exercises to help build muscle strength and hot and cold therapy to help reduce the pain and aid in the healing process. The road to recovery can be a long one, but the sooner you see a chiropractor at The Joint to start, the sooner you'll be healthy and back to your regularly scheduled activities.

Remember, prevention is key to avoiding injury, so work with your chiropractor to stay healthy!
