Sports Injury Causes and Treatment at Back2Health
At Back2Health, our team of professionals is here to help you overcome any aches and pains you have from the court, field, or arena. Our goal is to understand why you have pain and to provide effective steps to help you reduce that pain. A sports injury can impact the quality of your life and limit your ability to perform at your best. Our team can help you to restore function and well-being.
Why Causes Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries are very common. They occur because the body is being pulled, pushed, and moved at every angle and with significant force. This creates changes in the actual alignment of the spinal column and joints. When that happens, there’s a disconnect between the musculoskeletal system and the central nervous system, which includes your brain. You feel pain and cannot move the way you need to do so. Even if any outward injuries heal, you may suffer from ongoing pain and limited mobility.
When Should You See a Chiropractor for Sports Injuries?
There are many instances in which you should visit a chiropractor, like our team at Back2Health for sports injury care. We have a team of chiropractors, massage therapists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, and injury rehab specialists that can work hand-in-hand with you to help you overcome your sports injury. If you are suffering from the following types of symptoms, contact us for an appointment:
- Shoulder or neck pain, including whiplash
- Joint pain
- Back pain, including low back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Knee or leg pain
- Foot pain
Even if you’ve already seen a traditional medical doctor and not had the results you want, we can help you.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Sports Injuries?
Chiropractic care, coupled with massage therapy and injury rehab can help most sports injury patients to see significant improvement in their symptoms. If you are suffering from pain or limited mobility, we can use appropriate chiropractic adjustments to ensure your spinal column is properly aligned. This reduces the stress on your joints and nerves, and reduces pressure that’s causing the pain. In addition, by correcting this alignment, we can encourage better movement. We’ll even teach your body how to move properly to avoid ongoing pain.
In addition, we may recommend massage therapy. It works to help stimulate blood flow to the impacted area, encouraging it to heal. Our team will work one-on-one with you to create a customized treatment plan designed to get you back to where you want to be. We work with athletes of all types and from all backgrounds.
We recommend coming in to see us before the season even starts. Preventative care may help to reduce many of the aches and pains you feel later in the season.
