Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

By Donna Stark

What does a professional athlete have in common with the amateur athlete who just likes to play on the weekends? They both hate to get injured! And when they do sustain an injury, they both have to go through the same steps to heal. If you have recently been injured or are still dealing with some lingering effects of a previous injury, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. They can help get you back into the game no matter what your athletic level is.

Injury Frustrations

It's easy to think you can return to your sport after a few days of rest and medication, but that isn't always the best form of treatment to follow. Many athletes find that as soon as they become active again, the pain returns and the level of improvement they were hoping for just doesn't exist, and there are a couple of reasons for that. Take a look at them below.

  • Too much rest - While rest is an important factor after an injury, too much of it could hinder the body's natural healing process. The injured part of your body needs adequate blood flow and resting for too long can block that from happening. On top of that, too much rest can lead to muscle atrophy and imbalance in the body.
  • Dependence on pills - Prescription medications are great at reducing pain, but that's about all they do. Pain relievers rarely address the underlying source of discomfort. They simply mask the pain a person is feeling.

Chiropractic Care Is the Better Way to Go

If you can relate to any of the above, you may want to give chiropractic care a try. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and all-natural way to treat and heal sports injuries. From recent injuries to older injuries that are too stubborn to leave you alone, the chiropractic approach can make a significant impact in your recovery. Here are some of the ways regular chiropractic adjustments can help.

  • Decreases inflammation and swelling
  • Eases tension, stress, and strain in your muscles and joints
  • Restores joint and muscle function
  • Soothes irritated nerves
  • Encourages proper alignment and balance in the body
  • Helps strengthen the injured area
  • Improves blood circulation
