COMMON ISSUES RELATED WITH SPORTS INJURIES
The following issues can result from sports injuries:
- Restricted range of motion
- Reduced strength

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 in East Providence RI, Pawtucket RI, Providence RI, and Central Falls RI 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 the 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. The 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!
Ask your doctor at DeCrescenzo Chiropractic for a care plan based on your age, condition, and health objectives. Find out if chiropractic care can help restore your health, improve your performance, and increase your competitive edge.
