COMMON ISSUES RELATED WITH SPORTS INJURIES

Sports InjuryThe following issues can result from sports injuries:

  • Restricted range of motion
  • Reduced strength
  • Slower reflexes
  • Shortened endurance
  • Decreased performance
  • Chiropractic care for these types of injuries has become increasingly popular. Professional sports teams, Olympic trainers, and competitive athletes are employing chiropractic doctors – because they demand results.

    CONSULTING A CHIROPRACTIC DOCTOR

    Sports injuries among youngsters are often ignored as “growing pains”. Regular chiropractic checkups can help avoid problems seen later in adults.

    Chiropractic care helps restore function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Besides helping to relieve pain, chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation. Muscles, tendons and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply, and literally “take you out of the game.”

    Problems can start with the spine and affect the extremities, or they can begin with an extremity, like a knee or an ankle and then create further compensation problems in the spine. Either way, many sports-related injuries involve the spine. Professional athletes, “weekend warriors” and those who just want to remain fit are discovering the benefits of regular chiropractic care. Proper spinal function is essential for peak performance at work or play.

    Normalizing spinal function helps speed the healing of these soft tissues and reduce the deconditioning effect of being on the sidelines.

    An aerobic exercise program or a plan of brisk walking can improve muscle tone and help you recover from strains, sprains, and other activity-restricting health problems.

    Whether you golf, play tennis, bicycle, or participate in any other form of activity and exercise, the best treatment for sports injuries is prevention!

    Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they also depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily. This is how many disc problems begin.
